Hello! My name is Dana Sunderland and I am a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist under the supervision of Dr. Kaneeza Lafir, a licensed clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst. I have experience working with children, young adults, individuals, and couples. My clinical experience includes working through a variety of issues such as parenting children with developmental disabilities, grief, anxiety, depression, self-worth, trauma, separation/divorce, and life transitions.
Do you feel so alone in your relationship??
Is it impossible to have a conversation without one of you getting upset and walking out of the room? Is the silence in the room louder than the tv that’s blaring? Has the stress of your jobs, your finances, and your children overwhelmed you and has the joy of being a couple disappeared? Have date nights turned into talk about children, problems, and family rather than having fun, relaxing, and enjoying each other? Often avoidance becomes the name of the game.
As a couples therapist trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples, I can help you slow down the chaos of your interactions and listen to your own pain and your partner’s pain so that you can work together to heal, grow, and come together to find joy and fun in your relationship with each other. My clinical approach is to provide individuals and couples a safe and calm environment to explore their thoughts, feelings, and relearn the dance of intimacy.
I earned my master’s degree in Educational Psychology and Counseling with specialization in marriage and Family Therapy from California State University Northridge.
