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.

The "fit" between client and therapist is crucial. I create a safe and nonjudgmental setting in which to interact and work together, emphasizing and enhancing your ability to be open and to learn to see yourself as you truly are, without the need for it to be otherwise. I will follow your lead and together we will utilize your innate courage and resourcefulness to find, change and resolve the obstacles or difficulties you may be facing and that are holding you back from living the whole and rich life you want to lead. This is the essence of psychotherapy and of healing. Please feel free to call.

As life gets increasingly complex, occasionally we just need somebody to talk to… someone who cares, but who does not have a personal agenda with us… someone to bounce things off of, from whom we might acquire skills and tools that haven’t occurred to us, someone to walk with us as we sort things out. Psychotherapy gently facilitates the exploration and resolution of personal and/or interpersonal concerns according to our own specific individual needs and goals.

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 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.

Psychotherapist/Psychoanalyst

In 92660 - Nearby to Laguna Woods.

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!

Life is full of challenges and we get thrown curve balls which we are often not prepared for. We may come from homes which were unhealthy and now being in a relationship can be frustrating and confusing. Raising children is the hardest job of all. With all that we must deal with, there are times which our own coping styles do not work. It is then that outside help is critical to reduce the risk of symptoms worsening or to spend years just "surviving." It does NOT have to be like this. I can help you sort through the pain and get to a place where peace exists, where healthy relationships exist and where you are optimistic.

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.
