Maher Sonbol MA, LMFT #111453
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
As a clinical therapist and a certified anger management specialist, my focus and my passion is to work with couples to create and maintain a healthy relationship and help individuals develop healthier ways to express and manage their anger.
In couples and marriage counseling, I help couples overcome their differences and handle their conflicts and seek better ways to communicate, develop deeper intimacy, and experience joy in each other.
I psychoeducate clients struggling with anger and stress related problems the necessary skills needed to express anger in healthier ways, whether voluntarily seeking help or court mandated.
As a therapist, my objective is to provide a warm personalized experience for my clients by helping them develop a deeper sense of self-awareness, greater emotional health, self-control, while setting tactics to realistic plans for stress and anger management.
I also provide support for individuals who struggle with episodes of depression, anxiety and unpleasant behavior patterns such as addiction to cannabis, pornography and alcohol. I am also an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing certified therapist (EMDR). EMDR addresses symptoms related, but not limited to PTSD and other anxiety and stress related challenges.
Overall my main goal in therapy is to create a safe environment free of shame and judgment, where my clients can express, share and process thoughts, emotional pain and experiences. In my sessions, there is no right or wrong, bad or good, do or don’t, there are only authentic care and practical guidance through evidence-based methods and a professional working relationship.
