Good psychotherapy requires listening, understanding, and eventual effective interpretation on the part of the therapist, and the willingness to work toward change on the part of the patient. It does not call for a "God-like" knowledge by the therapist, but for a collaboration by therapist and patient in moving towards more functional living.

People begin searching for a therapist for different reasons. For some people it is because they are ready to create change, some feel as though they have ran out of options and others simply want to boost their self-growth and progress towards their goals more effectively. Whatever the initial motivations are, all of my clients can expect a safe, non-judgmental and peaceful environment where they can work towards creating positive change, at their own pace.

Does therapy really work? Yes, it does! Talk therapy is not only effective, but it helps you build neurons as you stretch your capacity to think and feel. Do you ever feel as if you are doing the same actions over and over and it leads to the same results? I can help you understand the patterns of behavior that in the past may have lead to less than desirable outcomes. Therapy is an incredible tool which enables you to see problems and situations from a different perspective. Finally, therapy is a safe place to talk about the things you may not feel comfortable saying to anyone else. Call me for a free 15 minute consultation.

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.

Meetings typically feel like engaging conversations where together we take on a problem (or a set of problems) that has been affecting your life in a way that is not what you want. Over the course of these conversations, you might expect to gain a better sense of where you stand and how you want to proceed, based on your skills, your resourcefulness, and what is truly important to you.

Finding the right therapist is vital to the growth and healing of the individual. My goal is to uncover what my clients need and find ways to help them activate this within session and within their lives. I am very active, encouraging, using humor and stories or videos to help them reframe the areas were they are stuck or confused. My goal is to help them see that the tapes that they believe are no longer helping them and to give them the freedom to see themself with new eyes.

Having the desire to deeply experience, explore, and feel our emotions that are related to both present and past circumstances is at the core of the process. Unexamined feelings can often lead to negative feeling or experiences which their cause is not understand. The process of understanding one’s feelings and emotions allows us to grow. Psychotherapy can awaken us to discover the real reason we choose our behaviors.

The most successful people have benefited from a course of therapy. Knowledge is power and self-knowledge makes you powerful. To learn what you don't know about yourself can help you avoid trouble at work, at home and with your own happiness. I think everyone deserves to invest in themselves, after all you take you everywhere! My first question is often, "If our conversations were successful and we were done, what would your life look like?" Not an easy question to answer because we are pretty clear about what we don't want. It's important to clarify what you want your life to look like if you had considered it successful at the end of it. My therapy is solution-focused.

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.

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.

How long does therapy take? This is a question I am often asked and yet is so difficult to answer. So much depends on what you expect and want from their therapist. Some people want a to address a specific problem they are facing and others want and ongoing therapeutic relationship. Personally, I much prefer working with patients who are looking towards the longer term commitment. I love getting to know my patients and becoming the holder of their stories as I try to facilitate growth and change.

The issue is not what happened to you, it’s the impact it had and how you are able to deal with it. Psychotherapy helps. It involves our talking together to address the problems you’re having in your life. We’ll see what works, what doesn’t, why not, what you’ve tried, and what other options there may be. We’ll look to understand how the difficulties came to be and what gets in the way of changing them. We’ll see what’s happening in your life now and how old patterns of thinking and behaving may interfere for you. We’ll explore other alternatives. I strongly believe people can change, and I see that happening in my office regularly. You’d be surprised how therapy can change your life.

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.

Psychologist

In 90403 - Nearby to South Gate.

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.
