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.

As a psychotherapist, it is my belief that by entering therapy, a client is entering a journey of self exploration that leads to personal growth and fulfillment. I believe it takes courage and strength for an individual to accept the challenges in their lives and take steps toward health and happiness. I am a directive therapist who educates, teaches, and instill insight for my clients that enhances their relationship within themselves and with others. I guide clients in obtaining insight as to sources that hinder their potential for happiness as well as provide coping mechanisms and tools clients can utilize to manage their emotional challenges.

Counseling, Coaching & Mentoring for Young-Adults

In 90401 - Nearby to Playa Del Rey.

If your young adult is feeling isolated and alone, I can help them explore the circumstances that have led them to this place in their life. Sometimes healing is derived from simply gaining understanding of how their life experiences have impacted them and shaped who they are. I can help your young adult examine how their early childhood experiences have influenced the lens through which they currently view the world. I can also help them evaluate any rules they made up about the meaning of life. Together, we can design a new and more fulfilling story for their future.

What is keeping you from living the life you want? Individual therapy is a powerful tool to identify goals and remove the obstacles that prevent you from experiencing more fulfilling relationships with yourself, your work, and other people. Individuals come to therapy at different moments in life. If you are experiencing anxiety or depression, struggling with self-esteem or relationship issues, abusing substances, feeling professionally frustrated, or experiencing grief and loss, the process of individual therapy is an effective way to create the change you want to see in your life.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Psychotherapy is the use of verbal or other therapeutic-based modalities to create a positive change for the person seeking it. Psychotherapy is a unique process for each person who participates in it and the time that one spends in this process varies from case to case. Over time, one of the essential goals of psychotherapy is for our clients to obtain the necessary tools to work through issues on their own as they arise. It is essential that clients remember that psychotherapy is a process, and if done correctly, a beneficial one. I appreciate you trusting your therapeutic needs with me.

Licensed Psychologist

In 90815 - Nearby to Playa Del Rey.

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.

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.

Clinical Psychologist

In 90010 - Nearby to Playa Del Rey.

My approach to psychotherapy is cognitive-behavioral. This therapy is a collaborative effort between therapist and client to solve the client’s problems and improve functioning. It is goal-directed and short-term. I work collaboratively with my clients to address current problematic thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that may be interfering with daily life and relationships. I try to provide rapid relief from uncomfortable symptoms while also promoting long-term behavioral changes which maintain gains and prevent relapse. I help empower clients to become their own therapists rather than foster their dependency on me.
