Professional Background Couples and Family Therapy Steps Beyond Communication Skills

Ask any marriage or couples therapist and they likely agree that most couples believe that they just need to learn to communicate better.  Couples benefit more when they consider the complexity of their relationship when picking a therapist.  For example, some therapists have more experience helping couples who have been remarried or who have been through AA.  Here is a list of  a few possibilities to consider

  • Family challenges (arguing, not being heard, forgiveness, past, issues,etc)
  • Relationship issues related to Asperger’s and ADD/ADHD
  • Relationship problem related personality disorders
  • Sexual problems
  • Broken relationships
  • Affairs
  • Communication problems
  • Divorce/Separation
  • Ambivalence in relationship
  • Addictions
  • Eating disorders
  • Step children
  • long distance relationships
  • military families
  • history of trauma, abuse or violence
  • differences in cultures
  • role of faith in relationship

There are also therapists with specialized training

CSI  Couples Sensitive Individual Therapy (trained to respect the partner even when only one member of the partnership is seeking help)

Discernment Counseling (for couples contemplating separating or divorce where one or both is ambivilant or lost all hope)

Hopeful Spouse Therapy (for partners who are alone in saving their relationship)

Crisis couples

Many therapists offer free consultation.  Think of the consultation as more than agreeing on a fee for services and a date to meet.  It is a chance to ask questions and find a the best “fit” for you and your partner.

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
