My work with adolescents addressed a range of teen-related issues such as depression, anxiety, self-mutilation, trauma, sexual acting out, substance abuse, and truancy.
Nurturing, strength-based and compassionate, I am an active and directive participant in my clients' work. We together will identify what brings you to treatment, be it depression, anxiety, PTSD, a history of abuse, or simply discomfort. We will articulate where in your life you are struggling- interpersonally, at work, in school, with your family or in your marriage, and develop goals to relieve that distress. It can be challenging to choose to participate in therapy, and I work to create a safe, honest and productive environment so we can engage and address the issues that are challenging you.

Life transitions are a focus of mine, whether it be developing identity and healthy relationships as a teen, rediscovering the self as an older adult, or building thriving relationships.
I'm glad you're here: you have taken a courageous and healing step by seeking support. I provide an integrative, resiliency-focused approach to therapy, pulling from your strengths and values to guide our work and help you regain a sense of mastery, meaning, and connection in your life. My perspective is that we are built to survive and often develop ways of relating which once helped us get by, but may no longer be helpful to a current situation. My goal is to form a safe connection to explore these factors that may contribute to ongoing difficulties, re-process experiences, and ultimately co-create your next chapter.

Change is possible. With over 20+ years of experience I have successfully worked with individuals, adolescents, couples and families to reduce anxiety, depression and overall conflict, whether it be at home or work. As little as 3-5 sessions my clients have reported that they have higher self esteem and greater confidence in all areas of their life. High stress can hit you during times of change; birth, separation, divorce or death of a loved one. I will help guide you through this difficult time. Each client's therapy is individualized, collaborative and strength based. I offer 2 hour dive deep intensive couples therapy.

Are you seeking help for a child or teen who is struggling emotionally, displaying challenging behaviors, experiencing difficulties in school or in personal relationships? I have over 30 years experience treating children exposed to trauma, whether from family conflict, divorce, exposure to violence, bullying, alienation, accidental injury, or abuse. When children experience trauma, they can become detached from their bodies, numbed to emotion, and stuck in repetitive trauma memories. The work (and play) of therapy is to assist them in reconnecting to those parts of their Self that have "shut down" so that the process of healing can begin.

In working with children and their families, I have developed experience with infants, parent-infant play and feeding interactions, teen pregnancy and teen parenting, court-ordered or volunteer parenting groups, academic concerns and IEP advocacy, pervasive developmental disorders and Regional Center advocacy, crisis counseling, divorce, couples, adults and family work.
Is it ever difficult to understand your child's behavior or your teen's angst? Do they speak a language or behave in a way you find challenging? Children from infancy through adolescence can seem unmanageable at times causing parents to feel overwhelmed and powerless. Why continue struggling? If your child is having a difficult time at home, in school, or with friends, I can offer insights and recommendations as well as provide a safe space for everyone to learn respectful, meaningful communication directed toward positive change. Let me help you and your family get there together.

As a result are power struggles in which each person tries to control the other. The way out is to change the system by changing those beliefs. It is only when love becomes appreciation instead of dependence on the other person that this will happen.

"The function of a psychotherapist is to become obsolete as soon as possible." That quote is from my own psychotherapist and mentor, years ago, and it's the model and motto of my practice. There are, of course, exceptions, including couples or individuals who return for a "tune up" once in a while and others who call me in as co-strategist when some new turbulence hits. Another exception is my work with schizophrenic spectrum patients, who need a long-term connection with consensus reality from wherever they happen to be stuck "on the other side of the mirror".

Adolescents / Teenagers (14 to 19) Therapists
Adolescence describes the teenage years between 13 and 19 and can be considered the transitional stage from childhood to adulthood. However the physical and psychological changes that occur in adolescence can start earlier, and it can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can bring up issues of independence and self-identity. Sometimes teens may be experimenting with drugs and alcohol or sexuality. During this time, peer groups and external appearance tend to increase in importance.

For help with adolescents or for a Santa Monica adolescent therapist these professionals provide help for adolescent development and adolescent education. They include adolescent therapists in Santa Monica, adolescent psychologists, and adolescent counselors. They can help with adolescent behavior, adolescent learning and adolescent discipline.

Santa Monica teen Therapists also provide help for troubled teens in Santa Monica or troubled teen boys and girls. For parents of out-of-control teens, Santa Monica therapists can help with communicating and understanding your teen. And therapists in Santa Monica can help with teenager behavior and teen learning issues.
