I provide brief solutions-focused psychotherapy to help clients assess personal and professional functioning, clarify goals, and strengthen social and emotional skills. I specialize in brief online relationship counseling. Online counseling allows clients to seek help as needed, engage in therapy at a schedule that's convenient to them, and keep their counselor as they progress through life. I work with LGBTQ and hetero clients on individual, couple, and alternative relationship concerns. Clients explore issues that impact their professional and personal relationships, including communication, power dynamics, and intimacy. I accept US$ and cryptocurrencies.

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.

My general approach to the therapeutic process can be understood in the image of a tree that bears fruit. Perhaps you are unhappy with some aspects of your life (the fruit). It may be unhelpful thinking patterns, relationship issues, emotional that seem out of control, physical symptoms, etc. This "fruit" may be telling you that some healing is needed at the root level of the tree (you). The roots represent beliefs you have about yourself, others, and your world. My role is to guide the process of discovering the beliefs that are resulting in bad "fruit". Together we can work towards healing the roots so that your tree produces healthy fruit.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 92116 - Nearby to Spring Valley.

My approach to psychotherapy involves both traditional and cutting-edge techniques in an atmosphere of warmth, acceptance, and collaboration. The relationship can be an important source of healing along with the use of a wide range of tools to improve coping skills and build resources. Having a safe space to talk about your feelings and focus on your life is powerful. In addition, I use techniques that help you move through stuck places more quickly. We all have had negative events in our lives that have affected us and have caused stuck patterns and beliefs. There is a way out with the techniques I use such as EMDR and EFT. You can let go of the past and move on. I am here to help.

Peter Lambrou, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

In 92130 - Nearby to Spring Valley.

Brief therapy focused on solutions to help reduce anxiety, fears, worry, panic attacks, anxiety attacks, stress and obsessing. While understanding the past and the 'why' of having anxiety, fears, or even phobias may help, what really makes recovery effective is learning new skills for relaxation, new ways to think productively, and the lifestyle behaviors that reduce stress and anxiety. My 23 years of working with these problems and the associated depression that often follows with anxiety and the major clinical research agree that cognitive - behavioral therapy works. I use a variety of tools to help you get relief and overcome fears, anxiety, worry, and depression.

Psychotherapy is a process of a therapist working directly with you, most often talking together, in a way that helps relieve anxiety, depression, compulsions, phobias, and other mental health concerns. There are a wide range of techniques used. I use some of the most researched and proven methods - Cognitive Psychotherapy and Mindful Awareness. Essentially this is a way of teaching you how to better understand you thoughts and feelings, and to train your mind to work differently, in a way that allows you to be at your best - more happy, at peace, and more effective in you life.

The word psychotherapy means healing for the soul. Sometimes your soul can use some care when difficult circumstances bring a lot of stress on you. You can find yourself making choices and acting in ways that are ineffective or hurtful to yourself or others. That’s when psychotherapy can help you manage your thoughts and emotions so they help you get through hard times. In those times it’s easy to lose perspective and a coach who listens and provides guidance can be very helpful to assist you in getting your life back on track.
