Every person I work with has strengths that help them recover from anxiety, depression, or relationship problems. Discovering these assets, combined with new strategies, guidance, and effort provides a path towards recovery. I am here to offer you hope that there is no need to stay stuck in pain associated with anxiety, depression and relationship issues.

Anxiety and Depression
Anxiety and depression are treatable conditions. Without treatment, they can wreak havoc by producing overwhelming worries, lack of motivation, and crushing negative thoughts. The tendency to avoid situations that trigger anxiety is understandable, but problematic. Over time, avoidance intensifies the very sensations you are trying to get rid of.

An equally understandable, but counter-productive reaction to depression can also occur. Dark moods, fatigue and painful negative thoughts can lead to retreating from life. The retreat then makes the depression worse.

Please know that there are many things that we can do to help you reclaim your life. One powerful strategy is to clarify how distorted thinking patterns are fueling anxiety and depression. When these patterns are replaced with more reasonable thoughts, you will feel better.

Relationship Problems
When it comes to relationships, few people have ever been shown how to relate effectively through thorny times. And, believe me, all relationships have thorny times. With clear communication guidelines – what to do and what to avoid – you can learn to bypass or repair painful and frustrating interactions. I am a Gottman Method, Level 3 trained therapist. I love this method of couple’s treatment, and these same well-researched methods can benefit individuals as well.

Some relationship issues, such as domestic violence, require specialized treatment. For 12 years I was co-coordinator and therapist in a San Diego County certified domestic violence treatment program. To maximize safety and minimize potential violence, it is important to get help from a trained therapist in this field.

The Advantages of Teletherapy
I have an office in Mission Valley, San Diego where I see people. But during the pandemic I am seeing people from my home-office using teletherapy. It is peaceful and quiet in part due to our feeling safe to meet. After an initial getting used to this new format, people tend to forget about the technology and relate like they would face to face.

Convenience, safety and security are good reasons to choose teletherapy. Seeing me in the privacy of your own home without having to drive to an appointment can be appealing factors. Limiting exposure to the virus during the pandemic is another.  I have utilized every technical strategy available to ensure that your sessions are secure and private. Also consider your easy access to treatment – if you reside in the state of California, I can see you.

You Too Can Use This Technology
To ensure that your experience is positive, I introduce each client to the use of my teletherapy system prior to our session. We will be on the phone as I guide you step by step through the process. All it takes is one click and typing your name. I take care of the rest. Actually, it is easier than getting in your car and driving to a session! I will also explain how to complete an intake form that is secure and private. People are successfully using smart phones, computers and tablets to make a meaningful connection during their therapy.

If you have any questions regarding how you are feeling or therapy, please feel free to call me at 619-840-3114.
