At times, life feels overwhelming and anxiety seems to take over our bodies and minds. These stressful times can feel isolating, but please know that you're not alone. Whether you, or your teen, experiences panic attacks, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, difficulty adjusting to a new situation, or a similar life circumstance, there is relief out there.

At times, life feels overwhelming and anxiety seems to take over our bodies and minds. These stressful times can feel isolating, but please know that you're not alone. Whether you, or your teen, experiences panic attacks, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, difficulty adjusting to a new situation, or a similar life circumstance, there is relief out there.

It can be difficult to reach out for help, but I have worked with many people who are suffering from the stress, anxiety, or depressive feelings that come up when the weight of life is coming down on your shoulders. I help my clients- whether teens, young adults, or young professionals- to understand themselves better and learn and practice coping skills to reduce or eliminate the troubling symptoms, and help them heal from the hurt they may have experienced in the past. I utilize a variety of techniques including helping you to understand your thoughts and behavior better (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and making adjustments to help change your perceptions and experiences of life. I teach my clients how to be more Mindful by being in the moment and letting things go more easily, and I encourage them to have more compassion for themselves. Sometimes you just need someone to listen to you and be there to support you. I would be honored to be able to be there for you.

I work best with teens, young adults, and families who are ready to take a look at what is not working for them, and be open to making some changes so that they can achieve more inner-peace, happiness, successful relationships, and quality of life.

I offer a direct, honest, warm, and compassionate approach to therapy. We will work together to explore your strengths and develop goals so that you can reach the level of functioning and life satisfaction that you desire.
Please feel free to reach out for a free phone consultation to see if I may be a good fit for you. I offer individual, group, and family therapy to meet your needs. I look forward to chatting with you soon!

Experience all that transforms in your life when you begin living in a way that reflects compassion toward yourself, and a deeper connection with your emotions, dreams and truth.

I am a warm therapist with a comfortable style, over twenty years of experience and an excellent reputation in the professional community. Prior to establishing a full-time private practice, I provided therapy at the Departments of Psychiatry at UCSD and Rady Children's Hospital, and at Scripps Clinic, and trained other therapists.

I have expertise in many schools of therapy and healing, and will adapt therapy to meet your specific needs. Many women and men find my unique use of "focusing," integrated with other therapies, remarkably transformative and empowering.

RELIEF, PEACE OF MIND, BALANCE
Through our therapy you may shift out of your pain and the memories that hold you back, and tap into inner knowingness, wisdom and strength. You may be released from distressing symptoms, make important decisions, and become able to act in ways that are most true to yourself and propel your life forward.

THRIVING RELATIONSHIPS
Couples often say they now relate to their partners in ways that simply work better. They finally feel supported and understood and have a deeper connection. With the tools to handle conflict productively, they also become confident in the resilience of their relationship.

Such positive results are often just as true for relationships with children and other family members, friends and co-workers, and when you are seen individually. Even subtle changes in the way you relate to someone can be a powerful catalyst in transforming a relationship.

You, too, may find our work life changing even after prior therapy was of limited benefit.

Hello and Welcome, my name is Bryson. Please take a moment to read a little about me and the work I feel so passionate about. I look forward to hearing from you.

Interpersonal relationships are powerful contributors to our overall health. Our intimate partner relationships, family relationships, work or peer relationships affect us in meaningful ways. When our relational lives are strong and connected we feel satisfied, empowered, hopeful, and more confident. When our relational lives are hurting, we feel anxious, sad, pained, frustrated, and left not knowing what to do to improve it. I work with my clients to address the heart of their stressors working toward tangible results with lasting effects. I work collaboratively & passionately to create a safe, responsive, and supportive environment to address your needs.

My practice centers around Emotionally Focused Therapy and Attachment informed therapies to help individuals, couples, and families address the core communication patterns that leave them feeling stuck and disconnected. In addition, I conduct research with Military Couples and help our Service men & women manage unique stressors in their lives.

My passion and expertise in couple, family, and individual therapy can help you grow, heal, and feel more connected in your relationships. Together we will address the core of your concerns, working with a sense of compassion and understanding. I welcome an opportunity to meet with you.

Are life challenges, stress, fear, worry, or physical symptoms interfering with your goals for work, school, relationships, physical, or spiritual well-being? Do you experience sadness, lack of motivation, problems concentrating, problems sleeping or eating, and decreased pleasure from activities you enjoy? Do you want to feel calm, present, positive, focused, and engaged in what is meaningful to you? I specialize in treating people who experience panic attacks, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and depression. I utilize an integrative approach consisting of mind (thoughts), brain, and body techniques to illuminate awareness and ability to challenge negative patterns.

I focus on the connection between your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, physical, and psychological symptoms. I will teach you the necessary skills to modify your thinking to change your mood. I incorporate brain mapping (QEEG), neurofeedback, and biofeedback to illuminate imbalances in your brainwaves and autonomic nervous system (calming / fight or flight).

You will train your mind, body and brain to function more efficiently and effectively to increase health and healing. You will explore current and past experiences to discover new ways of relating to yourself and others. You will work through difficulties by utilizing your strengths and practicing new coping skills.

One of the most important decisions you will make as you weigh your therapist options is selecting the most well-matched therapist for you. Only you can determine who that is.

One of the most important decisions you will make as you weigh your therapist options is selecting the most well-matched therapist for you. Only you can determine who that is. What I can do is describe what sets me apart so you can decide whether my blend of talent, expertise and experience is what you’re most seeking. With this in mind, consider the following:

- If you know you have psychological work to do but aren’t particularly fond of the idea of being in therapy, I love to find solutions for people like you.

- If it’s important to you you to enjoy your therapy journey rather than feel dragged down by facing your challenges, we will get along great.

-If you will settle for nothing less than root cause solutions instead mere symptom management, that’s how I work.

-If you’re seeking a level of wisdom that simply isn’t available in a therapist who hasn’t been around the block quite a few times, I might well be the seasoned therapist you’re hoping to find.

-If you don’t take well to cookie-cutter approaches and instead want a fully individualized and customized plan for resolving your particular situation & goals, that aligns with your unique temperament, customization is the only way I work.

-If you’re wanting to work with a therapist whose toolbox ranges from conventional to integrative, and who is equipped to help you attain your goals in as thorough, deep and rapid a way as possible, we’re going to get along great.

More specifically, -if you want to finally stop spinning your wheels treating symptom after symptom, I combine state-of-the-art rapid treatment modalities with my extensive training and decades of experience in spotting the root cause of problems, to help you do just that. In addition providing this with adults, I also do this children all the way down to toddlers, as well as with parenting challenges.

-If Central or South American Spanish is your first language, I am not merely bilingual, I’m bi-cultural.

-If you have not gotten what you wanted from prior therapy or are skeptical that the journey can be worthwhile, I have a strong track record of doing particularly well with folks like that.

Finally, -If this combination of strengths matches what you’re looking for, let’s have a brief phone conversation so we can go our next step toward discovering whether we’re an ideal match.
