My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative in that I work with my clients to unearth dysfunctional patterns of behaving or relating that are keeping them from the fulfilling lives and/or relationships they seek. As a solutions-focused psychotherapist I use complementary therapy approaches and techniques to teach clients new skills, increase understanding and insight, and build healthier lifestyle habits that are customized to address their unique therapy goals. My clients are encouraged to practice these new behaviors and ways of thinking between sessions so that the changes they make through our work together produce more satisfying and fulfilling lives.

James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.

I find Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to be the most useful tool in my psychotherapy toolbox. That's because CBT has been proven scientifically effective to reduce depression and anxiety for the last 50 years - and can be used in conjunction with or without medication. Proponents of CBT contend that it is not the events themselves that cause feelings of depression and anxiety, but rather what we tell ourselves about such events. Let me help you to identify the hurtful "self-talk" that is derailing your happiness!

Many of us seek therapy to get relief from emotional distress, or to manage a problem that we are having in our lives. But often, those problems are connected to something deeper and causes us to feel “stuck” in patterns that we are unaware of. A full exploration of your history helps to uncover those more unconscious thoughts and reactions. Learning to manage the problems, while also addressing the underlying triggers is a crucial part in feeling more effective.

California Licensed Clinical Psychologist, MFT

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.

I provide a safe environment for you to share your story, address the challenges you are facing, and explore your hurts, hopes, and dreams.

We will look at how the person you are today is working for you and address areas that keep you from reaching your current goals. I also want to know how your past affects your ability to be in relationship with others. I will walk alongside you through this journey of healing and personal growth.

Psychotherapist/Psychoanalyst

In 92660 - Nearby to Sunset Beach.

I use an Object relations approach to psychotherapy which entails looking at how your relationships affect your functioning. As a certified psychoanalyst, I am always listening for issues connected to your past and yet I am always grounded in the present. Looking at the past is only helpful if it helps us live richer and fuller lives now. As we explore the important relationships in your life we may see that there are faulty perceptions interfering with your happiness. Old feelings from the past can hinder you personal progress. I focus on helping you to remove the obstacles that get in your way. Our relationship is important for your healing. Let's see if we are a good fit!

Are you struggling to sort out some thoughts, memories or emotions...or maybe navigating through difficult relationships past or present? Do you need support to increase self-confidence and self-esteem? These are things that all people need to continually work on and keep sharp. Some have never had a good model or foundation to go off of and others may have had their foundation shaken by recent events. No matter the challenge or struggle you've had to seek professional support can be the most important key to beginning to feel better. Finding the therapist that you connect with and feel comfortable with key. I look forward to meeting to and seeing how I can help you.

Psychotherapy allows for revisiting our progress as individuals and assessing our lives in terms of our strengths, weaknesses and aspirations. It also provides an opportunity to initiate personal change and growth. Additionally, it assists with an honest accounting of who we are and who we are aspiring to be. Dealing with day to day challenges can create imbalances that propel one to search for answers. Whether the focus of therapy relates to the past, present, and/or future, it is time with the self.

Psychotherapy can be a frightening word because “psycho” brings up images of Norman Bates and he is certainly someone none of us want to be associated with. The truth is that psychotherapy is just a fancy word for counseling. If “therapy” is used alone, people ask if it is physical therapy, occupational therapy, etc. A prefix was needed to distinguish it from other therapies and unfortunately “psycho” was chosen. Please don’t let the word stop you from seeking any necessary help you may be seeking. Needing help doesn’t mean you are crazy or that you are weak. We all need help at various stages of our lives and if you are in need now, please let me assist you. Call me at 714-751-0888.

Psychotherapy gives us the opportunity to understand and change something that is negatively affecting our lives that we do not understand. Examples: Work success unobtainable! I am not liked at work! I Feel hoeless and helpless at times! Romance illudes me! Friendships are few or don't exist at all! I can't get intimate easily! Realtionships come and go! I always seeming pick the wrong people for partners! Its hard for me to set goals! I day dream a lot! In Psychotherapy we will explore the problems, understand the causes, how they are impacting our lives today. We will identify the areas we want to change, seek out solutions, set goals and work toward resolution.

Most of us don’t think about our mental health until we have a disorder or a serious problem that impacts us negatively. Many of us have learned communication, coping skills, and parenting skills from our caregivers which have not always been positive or helpful. Through our life experiences we develop good or bad habits, a positive or negative world view, effective or poor communication skills, healthy or unhealthy coping skills. Therapy by a professional can teach you new skills and behaviors to improve your relationships, increase your satisfaction and happiness, and improve your overall well being.

I enter into each new psychotheraputic relationship with an extreme prejudice that therapy works, for most people. Finding the best fit is an important component to good treatment. It's important for the person whom you are sharing your most vulnerable and initimate information be someone you have faith in, sets good boundaries, understands your specific needs and that you can ask questions freely and without judgement. I work collaboratively with clients to better gain a sense of understanding about their particular problems or concerns. Each therapist brings their own education, personality and experiences to the therapy hour, its part of our humanness and this must be a good fit.
