About me

My name is Sylvia Fernandez Chamberlain. I am a licensed Marriage, Family Therapist. I have worked with couple struggling in their personal relationship using mainly cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as Trauma-Focused Therapy. It is difficult sometimes to idetify how words affect our relationship. However, when each one can identify the words or phrases, they use that creates turmoil in the relationship, they learn to better communicate using different phrasing.
Sometimes one partner is battling severe depression or anxiety not understanding where it is coming from or how to cope with it. Through guided imagery, affirmation and meditation couples can learn to lift the burden of depression and calm the anxiety.
It is difficult for couples to see that they come into a relationship wit emotional baggage from their early childhood. That emotional baggage takes on a life of its own and then it is used as rocks to throw at the partner thinking they are to blame for whatever the incident. When each individual can identify thoseearly dysfunctional behaviors from their childhood, then they can learn better methods to heal the wounds. This makes for better communication between the partners and better communication also leads to better sexual experiences in the bedroom.
Working with couples or individuals struggling with relationships is a challenge I personally had to deal with and hopefully the skills I acquired in my own journey will be helpful to you. I check my messages several times a day and will respond within 24 hrs. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you.

I really love the way she knows exactly what it is, I'm trying to say, even without me having the right words myself. So Grateful

Sylvia is by far one of the most helpful, compassionate, insightful and caring therapists I have come across. Our couples sessions are always a safe place to vent about our feelings and disappointments, and Sylvia makes sure that we leave the session with positivity and love. We have had some difficult conversations come up and she really makes sure we both are supported and given the tools to overcome our barriers. My partner and I are very different in our upbringing and communication style, but our sessions with Sylvia are bridging some of the gaps. We end each session with a short meditation, which has now become a practice we're already trying to incorporate into our everyday life. I'm forever grateful for Sylvia and her expertise and feel that Regain is very lucky to have her!
