Relationship Counseling (Marriage, Couples, Parents)

All relationships can suffer from a lack of connection between the two people involved, whether it be spouses, a parent and child, or best friends. I offer counseling for romantic, familial, and platonic relationships. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR) techniques to teach my clients positive communication skills to strengthen emotional intimacy and trust. I help my clients to achieve long lasting relationships and to feel confident connecting with the important people in their lives.

I can meet my clients individually, as couples, or as families. I see clients of all cultural backgrounds, gender and sexual orientations, and ages. For questions or to schedule an appointment, contact me at 949-954-0750. For information on my insurance policy, please visit my fees and insurance page.

You may benefit from relationship counseling if any of the following describes how you feel about your loved one:

  • I can't get their attention easily
  • I fight with them frequently
  • I don't feel comfortable being close to them
  • I don't think they prioritize me
  • I feel hopeless after an argument
  • I feel lonely
  • I cannot share my deepest feelings with them
  • I talk, but they don't listen to me
  • I don't think that they will be there for me
  • I don't know if they will still love me after a fight or disagreement
  • I don't trust them
  • I don't feel that they care about my joys, hurts, and fears
