My approach to psychotherapy is very customized. Every individual comes with their own beliefs, values, and family of origin. Because of this, one size does not fit all. I am very careful to take the time to learn my clients and their needs. I help my clients walk toward the directions they desire. I come to you with over 35 years of experience in helping others to heal. Whether it is addiction, abuse, grief, relationship struggles, or stress, I can help. I look forward to assisting you with your life challenges.

As a Clinical Psychologist with over 25 years of experience, the focus of my work is PASSION. My work with individuals and couples is to create a deeper relationship first with ourselves and then within the relationship to have a more fulfilled and passionate life. In my experience, passion comes when our inner life matches our outer life, when we live authentically and in integrity with our values. My work with individuals begins there, identifying our values and what excites us and removing the blocks to living that inner truth more fully in our lives.

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.

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 combines "family of origin" work (examining how current life issues are rooted in childhood experiences) with the application of biblical principles for living. Depending on the problem a client is facing, I also use cognitive behavioral techniques which help to develop an understanding of the thoughts and feelings that influence behaviors.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 91301 - Nearby to Oak Park.

I believe in showing my clients empathy, compassion, and unconditional positive regard. There is no script to follow. It is simply listening, holding space, withholding judgement, emotionally connecting, and communicating the incredibly healing message of, "You are not alone." My approach to helping is to show up authentically, without judgment and provide unconditional acceptance and guidance in the therapy room. My philosophy regarding psychotherapy is that healing happens in a warm and safe therapeutic relationship. What I find most important is creating a space between the therapist and client that is sacred, unique, very honest, and above all, compassionate. I use down to earth examples and exercises as a way to approach the healing process...(view profile to read more)

Psychologist

In 90403 - Nearby to Oak Park.

Using a combination of individual and group therapy, I help my clients resolve the pain of the past and build the skills to thrive in the future. By understanding the root cause of psychological pain, releasing the emotions attached to the pain, and learning from the pain, my clients change their lives. You can too. If you are willing to do "the work," I am willing to help you. "Talk therapy," whether in a group or done one-to-one can heal old wounds, improve relationships, eliminate symptoms and increase self-esteem. If you feel "weak," because you are seeking therapy, I politely disagree. For me, it is the strong who walk thorough my door and ask for help. Choose to be strong.

Psychotherapy is another word for counseling. Most people who are seaching for psychotherapy on the internet are wanting to work on themselves, changing patterns that are interfering with their lives and relationships. Often psychotherapy refers working a bit deeper than just a few sessions, to get at the root of problems for the most effective and most lasting change. It can be very hard work for both of us, but immensely beneficial. If this sounds interesting to you, please contact me so we can discuss it further.

Clients come to see me because they have the same arguments over and over. Couples tell me they don't understand each other; and they don't listen to each other. After working with me, couples learn new ways to talk to each other. They feel more loved, more care about, and more understood. Couples and families report that they get along better, things are calmer at home, and there is less fighting. Clients tell me..."We catch ourselves going back to old patterns. Then, we get our homework sheet out and do it differently. Thank you for helping us communicate better."

As co-therapists we bring greater awareness of what is going on in the room. We focus on the here and now. We bring experience in Gestalt, humanistic, mindfulness and narrative therapy into the room. We strive to create a safe and collaborative environment. We work together to help couples understand their patterns of behavior, acting out, shutting down and arguing. We focus on how a couple fights and not what they fight about. When we help you to understand and accept who you are now, change becomes a reality.

Psychotherapy can be a powerful tool in one's life. Most everyone can benefit from therapy regardless of what the problem or issue may be. There is always this misconception that you must have something wrong with you if you go therapy, but that is a myth. Psychotherapy can be very helpful and powerful within one self by expressing your internal feelings.

Marriage and Family Therapist

In 91355 - Nearby to Oak Park.

In psychotherapy together, you and I, we will work to understand the meaning of the symptoms and/or situations that brought you into psychotherapy in the first place. Whatever the symptom there is a reason for it? Together we will discover why you are suffering this. We will look to clues from past ( family and relational dynamics) and see discover what unconscious thoughts, patterns and beliefs might be the source of this suffering. Much of the healing that will occur in our work together will come from making the unconscious conscious. Through increasing conscious awareness patients have a decrease in symptoms, improved relationships, and an increase in life-satisfaction.

Therapy is about change, it is about conflict, it is about emotion, and it is about our relationships. People who seek therapy may feel stuck in their relationships, their jobs, or their lives in general.They may have great difficulty coming with their families, friends and partners. Often, when individuals are struggling, their perspective of people, relationships and situations in their life can be affected. Sometimes previous or ongoing trauma seriously impacts how individuals think, cope and feel about themselves. The psychotherapy I provide, works in looking at, understanding and changing those perceptions and providing skills necessary for a new/different way of relating/communicating.

The relationship between therapist and patient has a context, a sharing of subjective experiences that cannot help but play out in unique and meaningful ways. Because every human being and each individual's process is unique, I won't put you through a series of pre-determined exercises or fit you into some theoretical model. I work in collaboration with you to explore, discover, illumine, and heal the wounds that have kept you from expanding into the fullness of who you are meant to be.

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.

Maybe you are feeling anxiety, depression, or perhaps you are feeling stuck in the past, due to childhood abuse or other traumatic experiences. Whatever the situation, you have a sense that something needs to change. As your therapist, my role is as a supportive collaborator who will work with you as we explore and unearth the thoughts and feelings which are causing you pain. It is important to feel emotionally safe and cared about, and I have helped many people to be able to express themselves in a trusting, non-judgmental environment, leading to an overall improvement in their functioning, satisfaction, and relationships.....

There's an old saying: "If you can't talk about it, you can't work it out." I agree. This is where psychotherapy can help. If you choose to work with me, we will work together to help you learn how to express yourself in ways that help you to identify your needs and how to get your needs met. This isn't always so easy, in particular if we are feeling guilt, anxiety, or shame. Many people simply aren't used to talking about some of the challenges of their lives. Perhaps this speaks to you. I understand. That was me at one time. What I can tell you is this: for over 25 years my clients typically report feeling better because they feel heard, understood, and truly cared for.

Psychotherapy is a process where we examine what makes us tick". We can better understand the things that are causing us to feel bad and the our mental fitness-how we feel about ourselves, life in general, relationships, our jobs and our role in the world. As a psychotherapist, I provide my clients with a secure space to talk openly and freely and not worry about being judged or embarrassed. I want my clients to be understood in all of their complexity which includes the beautiful, the ashamed and the scary. Then, we will find the parts of you that may need a change and decide how the positive change will happen.
