Psychotherapy allows for revisiting our progress as individuals and assessing our lives in terms of our strengths, weaknesses and aspirations. It also provides an opportunity to initiate personal change and growth. Additionally, it assists with an honest accounting of who we are and who we are aspiring to be. Dealing with day to day challenges can create imbalances that propel one to search for answers. Whether the focus of therapy relates to the past, present, and/or future, it is time with the self.

I do short-term solutions-oriented therapy to help you think differently about yourself and your world and then develop skills to better deal with your issues from the past or to better deal with current areas of difficulty. We start by assessing problem areas, and then deciding together how best to approach them and what result we would like at the end of therapy. Therapy itself involves talking in sessions, and feedback from me,but also many other skill-building activities such as reading, practicing new behaviors between sessions, and doing things to reduce life stress.

The process of therapy is and should be tailored to each individual's life experience. Research shows that clients in therapy, who seek assistance to deal with a whole range of issues, challenges, thoughts, and emotions, can experience a positive benefit. In our collaborative work, we will complete a comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment, where we look at many life factors that may be contributing to those challenges for which therapy is being considered. After an assessment, we will have a clearer idea of core values, possible goals and many ideas on designing a flexible plan that is easy to understand and use to bring about the transformation desired.

Psychotherapist/Psychoanalyst

I use an Object relations approach to psychotherapy which entails looking at how your relationships affect your functioning. As a certified psychoanalyst, I am always listening for issues connected to your past and yet I am always grounded in the present. Looking at the past is only helpful if it helps us live richer and fuller lives now. As we explore the important relationships in your life we may see that there are faulty perceptions interfering with your happiness. Old feelings from the past can hinder you personal progress. I focus on helping you to remove the obstacles that get in your way. Our relationship is important for your healing. Let's see if we are a good fit!

Good psychotherapy requires listening, understanding, and eventual effective interpretation on the part of the therapist, and the willingness to work toward change on the part of the patient. It does not call for a "God-like" knowledge by the therapist, but for a collaboration by therapist and patient in moving towards more functional living.

Psychotherapy is not anything to be scared of, or intimidated about. Seeking out a therapist or being in therapy isn't an admission of weakness or some kind of character flaw. Therapy is a collaborative process and a partnership with someone who is trained in and experienced with facilitating personal growth. And in this process, you are in the driver's seat. Our minds and emotions and relationships involve complicated machinery just like our bodies do and in the same way a medical doctor helps you stay physically healthy, Psychotherapy is designed to help you be and stay mentally and socially strong, and continually in a position to take on life's many challenges as your best self.

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).

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.

My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative in that I work with my clients to unearth dysfunctional patterns of behaving or relating that are keeping them from the fulfilling lives and/or relationships they seek. As a solutions-focused psychotherapist I use complementary therapy approaches and techniques to teach clients new skills, increase understanding and insight, and build healthier lifestyle habits that are customized to address their unique therapy goals. My clients are encouraged to practice these new behaviors and ways of thinking between sessions so that the changes they make through our work together produce more satisfying and fulfilling lives.

If you have tried therapy before without results, maybe the therapist was not a good fit for you. Successful therapy requires a bond between two people in which there is honesty, unconditional acceptance and nonjudgmental listening. I help my clients learn to listen to and begin to their own internal wisdom and break free from family/friends well-meaning advice.

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.

I find Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to be the most useful tool in my psychotherapy toolbox. That's because CBT has been proven scientifically effective to reduce depression and anxiety for the last 50 years - and can be used in conjunction with or without medication. Proponents of CBT contend that it is not the events themselves that cause feelings of depression and anxiety, but rather what we tell ourselves about such events. Let me help you to identify the hurtful "self-talk" that is derailing your happiness!

Many of us seek therapy to get relief from emotional distress, or to manage a problem that we are having in our lives. But often, those problems are connected to something deeper and causes us to feel “stuck” in patterns that we are unaware of. A full exploration of your history helps to uncover those more unconscious thoughts and reactions. Learning to manage the problems, while also addressing the underlying triggers is a crucial part in feeling more effective.
