Crisis Triage:  Breaking Up Emergency First Aid

1. Give your partner space.  It is natural to want to convince  your partner to work on your relationship,  however, resist the urge.  Crying, pleading, arguing, lecturing, can make an already stressful relationship worse.

2. Stay true to yourself.  Becoming the perfect partner, reassuring love, doting,  writing heart-felt letters,  playing love songs, walking down memory lane, being overly attentive toward your partner can be seen as manipulative and unattractive.

3.  Get help and support on your own.

embrace 1Many people are surprised to find that they begin to notice positive changes from the moment they make their appointment. As a Marriage & Family Therapist registered intern, I pull from a wide range of treatment modalities to create a treatment plan that will benefit each individual client. As former teacher I carry with me the desire to teach myself out of a job. So, along with effective individualized treatment, I make it my goal to teach clients to use what they learn in session, where it counts: in their everyday lives.   I see couples, families, children, young adults and teens. I have varied hours of availability, including late afternoons, early mornings at The Inland Integrated Wellness Center. Our office is located in the historic district of Corona about 1 mile South of the 91FWY :
817 West Grand Blvd (map)
at the Inland Integrated Wellness Center.
Please feel free to view the pages of my website or call the office toll free at
(888) 634-6999 ext 16 if you would like more information or would like to start therapy.
Often same day appointments are available so why wait healing can start today!
