Reaching out for support can be scary.
Perhaps you’ve reached out for support in the past from family or loved ones, but their response left you feeling rejected or abandoned. Or, maybe you learned early on that it wasn’t safe to ask for help, leaving you unsure of how to advocate for your own needs as an adult. Regardless, it’s clear that you’ve reached a breaking point.
You may find yourself sacrificing your own needs for the sake of others, or throwing yourself into work at the cost of your social life. It might feel like a struggle just to get out of bed in the morning. You long for relationships where you can truly be yourself and have your needs met, but the vulnerability that comes with that can feel overwhelming or paralyzing.
It is time for a change.
It is time for you to put yourself first and address your unmet needs. It is time to find the safety, security, connection, and stability that you have always needed to thrive in life. As your therapist, we will walk together on this journey as you learn to integrate your emotions, mind, and body.

The Benefits of Therapy
Working with a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) can offer numerous benefits for individuals, couples, and families. LMFTs are trained to approach therapy with a systemic perspective, which means they take into consideration the entire system of relationships in a person’s life, including family, friends, and other significant relationships. This approach allows the therapist to understand how the individual’s concerns are connected to their relationships and the wider context in which they live.
LMFTs are also trained to work with a variety of issues, such as communication problems, relationship conflicts, anxiety, depression, trauma, and more. They are equipped with a range of therapeutic techniques and interventions that can be tailored to meet the specific needs of each client.
One of the significant benefits of working with an LMFT is the emphasis on strengthening relationships. This means that therapy is not only focused on treating individual symptoms but also on improving the quality of relationships and building resilience within the system of relationships. This can lead to improved communication, healthier boundaries, and greater emotional intimacy.
Additionally, working with an LMFT can provide a safe and supportive environment for individuals and families to explore their feelings, gain insight into their behavior, and develop coping strategies to manage life stressors. It can also provide a non-judgmental space to process past traumas, heal from emotional wounds, and develop a greater sense of self-awareness and self-acceptance.
Overall, therapy with an LMFT can offer a pathway to healing, growth, and greater connection within oneself and with others.
