Psychotherapy can be a frightening word because “psycho” brings up images of Norman Bates and he is certainly someone none of us want to be associated with. The truth is that psychotherapy is just a fancy word for counseling. If “therapy” is used alone, people ask if it is physical therapy, occupational therapy, etc. A prefix was needed to distinguish it from other therapies and unfortunately “psycho” was chosen. Please don’t let the word stop you from seeking any necessary help you may be seeking. Needing help doesn’t mean you are crazy or that you are weak. We all need help at various stages of our lives and if you are in need now, please let me assist you. Call me at 714-751-0888.

My clients express that exploring their pain and worries in therapy with me is a healing and learning experience. I spend time really getting to know you - what works for you in your life, and where you feel "stuck" or unable to move forward. Then we will work together to set goals that feel workable and I will check-in frequently with you so that we both know when you are achieving your goals. Trust is paramount in therapy. I work hard to build a trusting and safe space for you.

Psychotherapy gives us the opportunity to understand and change something that is negatively affecting our lives that we do not understand. Examples: Work success unobtainable! I am not liked at work! I Feel hoeless and helpless at times! Romance illudes me! Friendships are few or don't exist at all! I can't get intimate easily! Realtionships come and go! I always seeming pick the wrong people for partners! Its hard for me to set goals! I day dream a lot! In Psychotherapy we will explore the problems, understand the causes, how they are impacting our lives today. We will identify the areas we want to change, seek out solutions, set goals and work toward resolution.

When we work with clients, we don't jump to conclusions to diagnose a problem quickly. Instead, we explore with curiosity, looking through 3 lenses. We ask, "What's going on WITHIN, BETWEEN, and AROUND." Looking WITHIN helps us to identify the dominant patterns of thinking, believing, valuing, feeling, and choosing that contributes to the problem. We look at how a person makes meaning within their world, honoring their experience without judgment, offering warmth and genuineness. Looking BETWEEN, we explore the patterns of relating, roles, and interpersonal attachment occurring within relationships. Finally, looking AROUND, we engage factors in the environment (job, school, family).

Psychotherapy brings insight, and there is some relief in this--sometimes even joy. But what heals people from pain, freeing them to move on from developmental states of being stuck, is a relationship of integrity and empathic responsiveness. Together the client and the clinician explore the issues that brought him or her through the door. It's a safe place to feel your feelings, to cry any necessary tears, and to say what must be said. More than this, it's a regularly recurring chance to be heard as you figure out what you want your life to be, and how you can become the stronger person that you ultimately are.

The issue is not what happened to you, it’s the impact it had and how you are able to deal with it. Psychotherapy helps. It involves our talking together to address the problems you’re having in your life. We’ll see what works, what doesn’t, why not, what you’ve tried, and what other options there may be. We’ll look to understand how the difficulties came to be and what gets in the way of changing them. We’ll see what’s happening in your life now and how old patterns of thinking and behaving may interfere for you. We’ll explore other alternatives. I strongly believe people can change, and I see that happening in my office regularly. You’d be surprised how therapy can change your life.

A therapist can either build a strong alliance with you or demolish that alliance. I strive to build a solid one with you in which you feel accepted in a safe, secure place-- safe to share your innermost struggles and fears freely, with no fear of judgement or shame. Seek that therapist whose style resonates with yours and is a good match for your needs and personality. There are psychodynamic approaches (more Freudian and clinical) and person-centered (Rogerian). I am person-centered and will accompany you on your journey--facilitating your progress so that you can become your own counselor over time-- independent and capable of flourishing and developing sound judgment and inner peace.

A high level of trust and comfort for you in psychotherapy is a must. Working with an experienced therapist you can rely upon to listen skillfully will help you to learn to to lift negative moods, become a better problem solver, or improve relationships. Can simply sharing your problems with a therapist be enough to help you improve? I often hear from new patients that they were dissappointed in prior therapy because they were not helped to foucus and to use specific tools that not only made them feel better in therapy, but also in their lives. Therapy should be designed to help you learn at you own, most effective pace for you.

Does therapy really work? Yes, it does! Talk therapy is not only effective, but it helps you build neurons as you stretch your capacity to think and feel. Do you ever feel as if you are doing the same actions over and over and it leads to the same results? I can help you understand the patterns of behavior that in the past may have lead to less than desirable outcomes. Therapy is an incredible tool which enables you to see problems and situations from a different perspective. Finally, therapy is a safe place to talk about the things you may not feel comfortable saying to anyone else. Call me for a free 15 minute consultation.

I am broadly trained in Psychodynamic/Psychoanalytic therapy. As needed, I will utilize and borrow from various other approaches including ACT, CBT, and art therapy amongst others. I believe to create lasting change, it is necessary to discover the roots of the underlying problem. We will then create and utilize the tools required to bring about change.

Psychotherapy is not a teaching session and it is not advice. It is an honest search for what we do not see. The goal of psychotherapy is to acquire insight and clarity, create new priorities, gain the courage to change, and move towards restoring your life. In our work together, we will focus on how you understand yourself and others, particularly those people to whom you feel close. Our time together may include discussing experiences that sometimes reproduce pain and distress. We will work at your pace to explore your distress in a way that is meaningful and ultimately healing.
