Do you have a behavior, belief or irrational thought that you'd like to change? We often learn the "rules" of life from our family of origin. Sometimes it's believed that these "rules" are the truth; however, these "rules" are how we make it through our families. It is once these rules no longer work for us that we need to change them so we can live life differently and often better. It's not easy to make these changes but it is fully doable and I can help you with these changes. Let me help guide you. Start by calling me at 714-432-9856.

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.

I try to begin psychotherapy with a clean slate. By this I mean that I have my over 20 years of experience and training, but that I need to start all over again (to uniquely know you!) in terms of learning from the brand new patient what their world is like, what their struggles and symptoms are telling me to help guide us to help them find their way through their dilemmas, goals, and other important matters. I find that the therapy relationship gives us a unique perspective on what it is like to be who they are and look for clues in our work about what occurs for you in relationships, providing a way to learn about who you are in the context of our working relationship.

I enter into each new psychotheraputic relationship with an extreme prejudice that therapy works, for most people. Finding the best fit is an important component to good treatment. It's important for the person whom you are sharing your most vulnerable and initimate information be someone you have faith in, sets good boundaries, understands your specific needs and that you can ask questions freely and without judgement. I work collaboratively with clients to better gain a sense of understanding about their particular problems or concerns. Each therapist brings their own education, personality and experiences to the therapy hour, its part of our humanness and this must be a good fit.

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!

Having received my doctorate degree is psychoanalysis, my psychotherapy skills are now enhanced and expanded to work at deeper levels and in a more thorough manner.
