Places to Get Started
Welcome to Couples therapy and Discernment Counseling!
Are you feeling alone in your marriage? Does it feel like there's nothing you can do to fix it?
Are you struggling with feeling worthless all the time? Have you tried to solve the problems in your life on your own and realized you end up repeating the same fight?
Are you thinking about taking the next step, marriage or living together, but have some reservations that block you from moving forward but can't talk about them with your partner?
Are you thinking about separation or divorce, and you are not clear or confident about the decision?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you have made the right choice by looking for couples counseling, marriage counseling and premarital counseling that can prepare you for a healthy and strong marriage.
" Love is our deepest nature, and consciously or unconsciously, each of us searches for love."
- John O'Donahue
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Pasadena, California. I've worked with diverse populations for 25 years. My passion and devotion are helping couples and individuals working toward healthier and more secure relationships. I understand no relationships and marriages are the same, and I tailor our sessions together to address challenges unique to you. We will work together to understand each of your emotional reactions and have clarity on how you both are impacted by each other's emotions that drive repeated actions.
I am certified in both Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and in Discernment Counseling for couples on the brink of divorce. Many of my clients are cross-cultural couples or from multicultural heritage family. You will feel at ease and safe with my collaborative stance and my deep respect for your courage to make a change.
