Live Well Therapy

Delivering effective treatment for anxiety, trauma, and couples in a warm, supportive environment

Welcome! At Live Well Therapy, we focus on effective treatments with a compassionate approach, specializing in both couple therapy and individual therapy. We are based in San Diego and offer services across California. Dr. Hughes is passionate about helping reduce suffering so you can live a rich, meaningful life. If you struggle in your relationship, feel disconnected from your partner, or feel trapped by your anxiety—constantly worrying, or living in past memories of trauma—she is committed to helping you heal and reconnect with your life and those you love. 

Individual Therapy

Evidence-based treatments for a variety of conditions, focused on working toward the goals you have identified to help you live a better life. Perhaps anxiety or past trauma has you feeling stifled, stuck or disconnected. Find out which treatment could be helpful.

Relationship Therapy

Work through relationship issues, or obstacles preventing you from building healthy relationships, in a compassionate and supportive space. This may be accomplished through individual therapy and helping you identify how to improve your relationships, couple therapy, or therapy with other individuals that are important to you.

Couples Therapy

Find a safe place to work with your partner on the underlying patterns, communication breakdowns, and trust issues that might be hurting your relationship. Our goal is to help partners manage conflict more effectively, understand each other better, and strengthen their connection. 

LGBTQ+ Competent Care

Live Well Therapy is an ally to LGBTQ+ individuals and couples, and a safe place to receive competent and culturally sensitive care. LGBTQ+ individuals and couples are welcome.

Finding the right therapist can be challenging. I believe finding a warm, welcoming, and supportive therapeutic environment is key to helping you heal. At Live Well Therapy, you will be provided with personalized, compassionate care, backed by years of experience in evidence-based therapy.

Evidence-based, with a personal touch

Whether we work together one on one, or in a couple therapy setting, my goal is to make you feel comfortable and supported. My practice emphasizes evidence-based treatment, meaning decades of scientific research has found it to help people make significant changes in how they feel and how they live their lives, including integrative behavioral couples therapy (IBCT), emotion-focused couples therapy (EFT), and cognitive behavioral therapy for anxiety.

Treatment for a variety of conditions

Though I treat many conditions, anxiety, trauma, relationship difficulties, and latinx mental health issues are my expertise. No matter what you are going through, I encourage you to explore my services and reach out for an initial consultation to see if I may be a good fit to help you reach your goals.
