Psychotherapy is a fun, engaging, and transformative process! As your therapist I will work closely with you to identify what is working in your life, as well as what is missing and what isn't working. We will identify your real, hidden and emergent dreams, and goals. I will hold you accountable to making the changes you desire real, and this will further assist you in becoming more of the person that you want to be. I have assisted countless individuals and couples in the process of self discovery, living your truth, and living an identity of your choice, not one ascribed to you.

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.

Psychotherapist/Psychoanalyst

In 92660 - Nearby to Lakewood.

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!

Therapist & Counselor

In 91101 - Nearby to Lakewood.

I take a strengths based, humanistic, person centered focus toward psychotherapy. This allows us to approach your issues directly based on your experience with the issues you are facing. Beginning with your strengths, we will look at how you have managed the issues so far focusing on what has worked and expand on these options. At times you may be challenged and confronted with difficult yet realistic options for change. I work to provide positive feedback and encourage you to consider new techniques which may be just a little bit outside of your comfort zone. Through discussion in an open, honest, safe and supportive environment, we will work toward your growth toward your goals.

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.

Stephenie Champlin, MSW, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 92626 - Nearby to Lakewood.

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.

Therapy can seem like an esoteric phenomenon in juxtaposition to different cultural mores, family practices, religious beliefs and world-views. It can also be approached as a purposeful conversation intended to shed light on previously unexamined areas of the client's life with the potential of revealing a new way of looking at one's relationship to the world.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 90210 - Nearby to Lakewood.

People go to therapy to address a problem that is distressing them and causing interference in a significant aspect of their life (work, social life, interpersonal relationships, sleep, etc.) After the immediate problem is resolved or significantly reduced, most of my clients continue to stay in therapy because they have started noticing a change in themselves that they like! To me, therapy isn't just about reducing symptoms. It is about much more. It's about experiencing meaning in life. It's about connecting with the best version of ourselves and knowing that person is there within us. That's true self-confidence. My clients tend to tell me they feel more "whole". That's therapy to me.

My approach to psychotherapy does not involve years of talk about issues until the client reaches a "catharsis," and suddenly is cured. It is more of a collaboration and involves the client to engage in his own therapy. We look for solutions, rather than talking about "problems" endlessly. As a person-centered therapist, I believe an authentic, respectful and caring relationship with the client fosters growth and self-actualization. The use of cognive-behavioral methods, allows us to look for underlying beliefs the client may have about his place in the world, and unrealistic thought patterns, such as "all-or-nothing" thinking. These can be redirected to provide positive outomes.

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).

I have had so many trainings in all kinds of models. I love the basic dialogue model of communication which is the model in Imago Couples Therapy and Relational Life Therapy. Taking responsibility for the way we personally "make it up" from our past learning family history is essential in this learning process. I love the Humanistic mindfulness and Rational approach to life. My clients always have take a way homework to practice with at home.

My approach to psychotherapy involves a comprehensive evaluation to examine the specific needs of the client. Several modalities are utilized for treatment. Cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy. Therapy generally involves not only examining how our past experiences have informed our sense of self and well being, but understanding how to move forward effectively by developing healthy coping strategies. I treat individuals, couples, families in an outpatient setting. I treat both adolescents and adults.
