Barbara Lynn Breitman, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Indio
The foundation of every relationship begins with communication and understanding, whether as an individual or as a couple. We will work together to enhance communication and interpersonal skills and achieve the fulfilling relationships you want and deserve. Also, if you're having symptoms of depression and/or anxiety and feel alone, overwhelmed and have difficulty getting through your day, we will first explore understanding where these feelings come from. My goal is to build on your strengths and incorporate positive coping skills and tools to help alleviate these feelings and be able to live your life to the fullest.
If you think you might be having problems with using drugs and/or alcohol, it could be a symptom of underlying and unresolved issues. Change is possible by uncovering and working on healing those issues that often lead to depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and relationship problems.
I provide a safe, warm and trusting environment to help you realize your potential and bring harmony to your life. I offer short-term therapy to resolve specific issues, and long-term therapy to reveal and change underlying and negative behaviors which can increase your self-confidence and create healthier relationships. LGBTQI friendly.
