We are living in a time of uncertainty and fear. Feelings of anxiety and depression are significantly increased in people across the board. For some, symptoms from past traumatic events are being triggered. Other people are having increased conflict with their partner or they are struggling with the sudden transition into a full-time parenting/home schooling role. Many people who lived with more minor mental and emotional struggles are finding it harder to get through each day.

Are you or a loved one struggling with stress, anxiety or depression? Are your coping skills helping or hurting you? In life, we all experience times when we struggle whether it be with guilt, shame, grief/loss, relationship issues or adjustment to change. With a little help, we can move through this and get to a brighter life. In the 20 years I have been a therapist I have helped many people with these issues. One of my favorite quotes is “If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got. If you want something different, do something different.” Counseling is the process that can help with this.

I have treated people with difficult-to-treat mental health problems such as, Bi-Polar Disorder, Chronic Pain, Panic Disorder, ADHD, Sleep Disorders, Anger Management, Migraine, TBI conditions, PTSD, sports head injury, Stroke recovery and some neurological conditions many of which lead to memory loss,confusion and concentration problems.
I am a licensed psychologist with more than 30 years experience in the field of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (CBT), a powerful cognitive behavioral technique and an Associate Fellow of the Albert Ellis Institute. I teach people to become their own happier healthy self. My practice is focused on active-directive strategies to help people gain stability and mental flexibility. In the last 18 years, I have found that the combination of cognitive behavioral talk therapy and/or a complimentary psycho-physiological therapy, EEG Biofeedback or Neurofeedback, has been the most robust evidenced-based interventions I have used in my years of practice.

Today's society brings many challenges to children, adolescents and their families. While some face setbacks at home, others might struggle with school issues or have difficulties in social situations casting a shadow over childhood. Although parenting and family life can be the most rewarding experience, they are also complex tasks with ever changing challenges, especially if the family deals with, for example, trauma, anxiety, ADHD, grief, blending families, school/ peer problems.

We work together on issues including transitions, identity issues, depression, anxiety, trauma, reinvigorating relationship, healing after broken commitments, and should a couple want to dissolve the relationship, trying to do so in a way that honors the history of love and relationship.
I enjoy engaging with people about their lives, hearing what matters to them, what's meaningful, and encouraging them to live lives in alignment with those preferences. I partner with people to feel the permission really to be alive. I find it important to keep the work connected to what clients value; that fuels the resilience to tolerate change, hard conversations, and uncomfortable feelings (common elements of therapy). Given this, my ideal client/s is interested in feeling more self-acceptance, capacity to tolerate others, and to face unhelpful, old patterns with love in order to encourage choice and the possibility of change.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Venice anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Venice.
