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.

In laymen's terms, psychotherapy is the opportunity to talk about and process your problems or challenges with a trained therapist. Sometimes, we don't need someone to try to fix our problems for us, which is what most of our friends try to do when we talk about them. Sometimes we need someone who will listen and be a sounding board so we can think through and process for ourselves. I want to support you with your goals and your needs and we can make a therapy plan (psychotherapy or other types) that you feel will best suit your needs. Most importantly, I provide that safe environment for you to be able to be vulnerable, talk about, and process whatever is on your heart and in your mind.

In 90403 - Nearby to Rancho Palos Verdes.

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.

In 90815 - Nearby to Rancho Palos Verdes.

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.

A therapist can either build a strong alliance with you or demolish that alliance. I strive to build a solid one with you in which you feel accepted in a safe, secure place-- safe to share your innermost struggles and fears freely, with no fear of judgement or shame. Seek that therapist whose style resonates with yours and is a good match for your needs and personality. There are psychodynamic approaches (more Freudian and clinical) and person-centered (Rogerian). I am person-centered and will accompany you on your journey--facilitating your progress so that you can become your own counselor over time-- independent and capable of flourishing and developing sound judgment and inner peace.

All of us have concerns and issues of a relational or psychological nature. Talking through these concerns in an objective, safe and nonjudgmental relationship of trust with a experienced therapist is what psychotherapy can offer you. Psychotherapy can help you think through life's perplexing problems as well as assist you in knowing yourself better allowing you to make clearer choices, improve important relationships and enhance the meaning and quality of your life. I have helped many people through my 32 years of practice to face, embrace and resolve their life's difficulties in an atmosphere of honesty, support and reassurance. Perhaps psychotherapy can do that for you as well.

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.

Psychotherapy brings insight, and there is some relief in this--sometimes even joy. But what heals people from pain, freeing them to move on from developmental states of being stuck, is a relationship of integrity and empathic responsiveness. Together the client and the clinician explore the issues that brought him or her through the door. It's a safe place to feel your feelings, to cry any necessary tears, and to say what must be said. More than this, it's a regularly recurring chance to be heard as you figure out what you want your life to be, and how you can become the stronger person that you ultimately are.
