Empathy in Relationships

This is an excellent short film by Brene Brown on the importance of empathy in relationships.  Empathy can greatly reduce the amount of conflict in an individuals life.  Anger is often expressed when people do not feel like they are being understood.  Learning how to express empathy can greatly improve your relationships.

She is the best! All that needs to be said! Books recommended and phone calls outside of the office, I would say she goes above and beyond! read more

I started seeing Tammy (via video chat) a few weeks into the COVID-19 lockdown. I have seen many therapists over the years and Tammy is without a doubt the best I've ever worked with. She's incredibly easy to be vulnerable with and very apt at picking up on my emotions and state of mind. Almost every session I have left with a recommendation for reading or a worksheet with practical and useful information in line with issues I am encountering in my day to day life. She is very easy to get a hold of and very flexible, working with my ever changing schedule. I would highly recommend her - even if you are not local (I'm in LA). My wife and two of her friends have started to see her associate Jaclyn and have nothing but good things to say about her as well! Fair pricing and top notch service. Thank you Tammy!

Tammy Hyland is hands down one of the easiest people to talk to. We can be talking about anything, and we always end up in a deep conversation and she’s always asking the right questions. She’s the perfect person to go to whenever I have something on my mind because I feel so comfortable opening up to her. It’s one thing to have someone listen but when they care - that’s rare.

Tammy has been most helpful. This is my first experience with a professional Councillor / Therapist. I'm already feeling better and still have a long journey ahead, With the help of Tammy I see a brighter future for me going forward. Kind consideration and dignity are only a few of the attributes Tammy has shown. Unfortunately for me I've had to relocate back to the UK, had I been fortunate enough to stay in California I would have continued the therapy sessions with Tammy. I very much doubt the road to mental health is something we can go alone, so please seek professional help from someone as qualified as Tammy

Tammy is one of the most compassionate and caring people I have ever met. She is both professional and personable.  From the moment I met her, her warmth shone through andI could tell how dedicated she is to her clients.  I would recommend her to everyone I know for couples counseling, as her EFT base strategic completely align with the person she is.  She utilizes her intelligence and empathy  to help her clients navigate difficult situations, and her work is truly profound.  I would rate her 5 stars if I could!  One more thing:  her office is beautiful.  The colors and decor are so calming.  Its the perfect place to go to for a therapy session.  Tammy is the best!

At the first and only visit, she told my boyfriend and me that she didn't see why we were together, so he broke up with me. I expected to receive help in learning communication skills for us to determine for ourselves, not to see someone who thinks she the Oracle.

My wife and I went to Tammy for some marriage counseling and we were so happy that we did. She really helped us figure out how to better communicate with each other after our son was born and we really value the time that we spent going to her. Would absolutely recommend her for anyone looking for a therapist to help with your marriage.

I saw Tammy for a few months and she showed me nothing but compassion and empathy while helping me dissect a couple of childhood issues. Including with my therapy she recommended a couple of really good self-help books that I can use the rest of my life. I will continue to see Tammy and recommend her to anyone who needs guidance for looking into any irrational behavior or stuck trauma. She’s one of the best if not the best therapist I’ve ever been to and I mean that with great sincerity. Thank you Tammy for all your guidance!
