Specialization

Relationships: Lila is a Gottman and Emotional Focus trained therapist. Her work includes pre-marital assessments, communication, anger management, trust issues, intimacy issues, adult family relationships, blended families and enrichment.

Model

Lila holds to the idea that meaningful relationships are basic to our human existence. They influence who we are and how we perceive, ourselves, others and the world. Therefore past experiences can have a profound effect on current life concerns such as self-esteem, anxiety, and addiction and relationship issues.

Every therapist works from some sort of organizing theory. Different problems, personality and situations will sometimes mean she draws from different theories for the benefit of the client. Lila works mainly from a “Systems” theory. This means she will be looking for patterns in your life. (You may have noticed a few patterns already). She will then help you identify ways to change that pattern or learn from the exceptions when you weren’t in that pattern.
