I look at the root of your issue in the first session. I focus on what brought you into my office, what your presenting issues are and then i go deeper to look at where, how , and why your current conflict is present for you. Sometimes, it is simple like a response to a traumatic event. Most of the time the current event triggers an emotional response that needs to be understood more clearly. People act out their emotions through alcohol or drug addiction, cheating, remaining detached some or most of the time, anger etc, which are all symptoms. Yes in and of themselves they become an issue but going to the source of the pain helps minimize future acting out behaviors.

Therapy should focus on helping you reach your goals. Many of my clients have come for help in troubling life circumstances and want to enjoy life and feel more motivated. My philosophy about therapy is simple - I encourage clients to do more of what is working and less of what is not. I specialize in brief therapy for individuals and families who are experiencing a wide variety of problems and want to actively work to make a change. I have ten years of experience working with adults, teens, and children in a wide variety of settings. Sign up for a free consultation today.

Marriage Family Therapist (MFT)
Within Driving Distance of Palm Desert, CA
I offer psychotherapy for men who recognize that their lives and their relationships are not satisfying leaving them frustrated, angry and hurt. Whether with a significant other, at work or with their families, my clients know that something is not working but they are at a loss to understand what it is and how to fix it. This is where psychotherapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can be very helpful. Understanding how we were taught to view the world and questioning those beliefs with a trained psychotherapist can lead to significant improvements in relationships and overall well-being.
