Interpersonal relationships are some of the most important building blocks of our lives; they are the bonds that create our families, give us security, fulfillment and acceptance.  Damaged relationships throw our lives into disarray.  Lasting Affection counseling service provides family, marriage and relationship counseling in Alameda and Albany, CA, so you can build up, strengthen and find joy in your family, partner, friends and self again. 

As a marriage, family and individual counselor with over 20 years of experience, I have helped hundreds renew the vitality in their relationships, confront trauma-damaging experiences, and work through issues of trust, confidence, empowerment, life goals and much more.  I offer supportive and effective therapy techniques at every stage, from premarital and marital counseling to family counseling, and individual therapy for depression, anxiety and trauma or abuse. By confronting and working through these issues with the guidance of a professional, you and your family will discover new strengths, enrichment and rediscover long-lasting love connections. 
In addition to secular therapy using Lifespan Integration, EMDR, prepare/enrich tools and other methods, I also provide faith-based counseling and counseling in the Mien language customized to your needs and preferences. For more information on this and to make an appointment, call or email today.
