Are you facing an alcohol or other substance abuse challenge? Is problematic substance use threatening your professional success or putting you in problematic situations? Isolation and feeling unmoored increase your risk for substance abuse and make your emotional challenges more difficult to manage.
Do you feel overwhelmed, anxious, or lonely? Is it difficult to balance work with your personal/family needs? Are you finding it difficult to build friendships or understand the culture at work? Distraction on the job, insomnia, or withdrawing from family are signs that you may need help managing anxiety and stress. Many of us find it difficult to develop nurturing relationships and stop feeling isolated. In therapy, you can build coping skills and insights that can help you feel calmer and more in control. We will work to building the tools that you need to succeed professionally and personally. I am looking forward to helping!

I have worked with teenagers and children with ADHD, bipolar disorder, borderline disorder, substance use , and attachment disorders.
First and foremost, congratulations for taking the first step of taking care of your needs! Starting that first step can be very daunting and to be here at this very moment, I want to take a moment to celebrate YOU. I believe strongly that in order to become the main characters of our lives—authentic to who we are and who we want to become— we have to start by allowing ourselves to explore and reflect on our current journey and if we are where we want to be. Allowing ourselves that vulnerability in self exploration, in understanding why we do what we do, is one that leads to self improvement and discovery.

I specialize in the treatment of trauma and all its various manifestations: Depression/Anxiety, Substance use /addictions, Eating disorders, Disassociation/Derealization, Chronic stress, Relationship discord/Infidelity, PTSD (nightmares, flashbacks, avoidance, hyper-vigilance), and Complex trauma.
“Be yourself! Everyone else is already taken…” – Oscar Wilde. Being yourself is often easier said than done. As a trauma therapist, I see how easy it is for negative experiences to hinder our ability to be the people we want to be and create a life we want to live. Our bodies and minds are amazingly adaptable—we manage to find ways to survive horrible life events—but these survival instincts were meant to be used on a short-term basis. Traumas—big or small—are stored in the body and affects our ability to connect with others, to trust, and to feel safe in the world. The good news is, healing is possible!

Finding your true purpose and "meaning to life" is a focus of my therapeutic techniques. It may be necessary to assist you with your eating disorders, addictive disorders, sexual dysfunction and trauma before you can find your purpose. Often times a family or couple may need to be treated together. We can discuss this when you call. There is hope, joy and meaning for you.

All it takes is a little bit of adulting to realize that right about when we think we have it all together, life throws us a curveball. These instances can leave us feeling stuck – stuck in unhealthy patterns and behaviors, in feelings of anxiety or depression, and even in relational conflicts that seem impossible. For some, it’s balancing the demands of parenthood or a job situation that feels like it’s heading toward burnout. For others, it might be relationships that lack boundaries and expectations. However, here’s a glimmer of hope…you have the ability to move beyond “just surviving” and toward a place where you can thrive.

Life can be such a challenge. We humans are so resilient, but also fragile, and life can hurl things at us we could have never imagined. We often feel we're doing our best, it often doesn't seem good enough. Support is crucial. It's immensely useful to have a therapist who ACTIVELY helps you face life on life's terms. My clients are growth-oriented people who take a proactive role toward change. We look at their situation, feelings, behaviors and opportunities for growth w/compassion, hope and motivation. My style is warm and direct. I believe in using humor whenever possible - therapy doesn't have to be a drag.

Hi! I am a trauma-focused therapist because I believe that untreated trauma is the root or cause of most symptoms that clients seek therapy for. I collaborate with clients to help them learn more about the patterns in their life that have been contributing to their distress. Whether it be unhealthy relationships, addictive behaviors, self-harming behaviors, consistent anxiety and depression, low self-esteem, or simply being unable to move forward and meet life goals, identifying when these behaviors started and the belief systems related to them is how we work to resolve them.

These obstacles can get in the way of enjoying life. Making the decision to enter therapy requires courage. We bring hope, a belief in your strengths, and confidence that you can create positive change in your life.

It is my belief that the work of therapy is best described as a collaboration between the client and myself. The client is able to explore various issues in a safe environment with my support. My work with clients is tailored to their individual needs. Together we focus on a powerful, emotion based treatment, allowing clients to discover and work through the impact of issues that affect their lives.

What type of Burbank mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Burbank?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
