Individual and Family Therapy

Now with 2 locations to serve you in San Diego county; Banker’s Hill and Escondido

Sometimes life throws us a curve-ball that we just didn't expect. Whatever the curve-ball is, either large or small, it is common to cause anxiety, even if it is something exciting. If your curve-ball is something that isn't so exciting, maybe you feel traumatized. This can happen for any situation that causes disruption to your daily routine, your thinking and ultimately your ability to function at your full potential. Whatever your anxiety or trauma is about, we can help! We are a team of therapists that work extensively with anxiety provoking issues. These could be about relationships, life events, or any negative experience that is holding you back. If you are struggling with moving past a traumatic incident, or finding it difficult to overcome anxiety of any sort, please contact us. We will have one of our experienced therapists contact you as soon as possible. We look forward to hearing from you!

 “Transformation is often more about unlearning than learning.” ~Richard Rohr

“We inherit what our ancestors could not conquer” ~Native American Proverb

Are you stuck in patterns or cycles that you would like to change? Are there intergenerational patterns in your family that you would like to transcend? Do you find yourself attracting the same kind of issues or “problems” over and over? If so, this is usually a sign that there are parts of us that have not yet healed and therefore we will continue to experience these issues, until we are able to acknowledge, heal and integrate them.  When we embark on this healing journey, we transform our once cacophonic parts into a harmonious, balanced whole. We, like all things in nature, function best when we are balanced and in harmony. I believe that we are all wired for healing and that healing is always possible, even when the hurdles and pain appear to be insurmountable. 

I’m fascinated by epigenetics and neurobiology; more specifically, the ways in which one can actually change the brain and our DNA through healing the intergenerational trauma and anxiety that we can literally carry from one generation to the next.  Helping individuals break the cycles of abuse and dysfunction is my passion. It is truly an honor for me to witness and hold the space for this sort of transformation to occur.
