Sometimes life leaves us feeling stuck! When someone starts looking for a therapist, they’re almost always facing some type of challenge. You might be tired of feeling overwhelmed and living a life you didn’t picture for yourself; you may feel like you're losing hope. You want to feel a sense of peace and purpose. I collaboratively work with clients to tap into inner strengths and build the confidence to work through life adversities. Within this one lifetime it is never too late to find our own voice and become the author of our own story.

Hi, I'm Jeff! Whether you're here searching for yourself or a loved one, I applaud you for this step. Finding the right therapist can take time, but it's worth the effort. With 20 years in the field, I've whittled myself down to a few key characteristics: I'm caring, down-to-earth, and direct. If you're struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, family conflict, identity or relationship issues, I'd like to help! Therapy is sacred time for yourself... a place to safely explore, to build confidence, make changes, and to realize the path you want to travel.

You wake up each morning feeling stuck and alone. Perhaps you know what is causing these feelings or maybe it feels like they came out of nowhere. Either way, these feelings overwhelm you and you’re just not sure what to do about it anymore. You notice that your relationships, work and even your ability to care for yourself are starting to be affected. You make plans to work out or make a positive change, but quickly give up because you just don’t have the energy. You are starting to lose hope that you can get yourself out of this.

Are you tired of feeling alone while caring for everyone else in your life? Are you ready to increase feelings of connections with those around you, and increase feeling connected to yourself? Many of the people that I work with are use to taking care of other people while pushing down their own feelings and challenging experiences. Many of the people I work with struggle to share, often reporting feeling like a "burden" or that they "have to be the strong one." The people that I work with often have had to be stronger than they should have had to be. Having a space to talk about and focus on you is what I provide.

You feel overwhelmed by your anxiety at times; sometimes even to the point of having a panic attack. It can come out of nowhere and you don’t understand what brought it on or how to make yourself feel better. You feel helpless. Sometimes you can’t stop the tears from streaming down your face. You feel like no one cares about you or understands what you’re going through. There’s this unspoken pressure to just “get over it" and "move on" because "it's in the past." You say to yourself, “why can’t I just feel better already? What’s wrong with me?”

Aloha! Life is full of change and transition, and that means life is also full of times when we need extra support to manage the anxiety, depression, and/or distress that often comes along with it. If this sounds like you, you're in the right place. I like to think of myself as a treatment partner, not someone who sits silently while you figure out your own path forward. That means I take a holistic, collaborative approach to treatment, with a nod to evidence-based practices, such as CBT, ACT, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused, as well as using EMDR and trauma-focused CPT for PTSD and other trauma-related symptoms.

Are you tired of abandoning yourself in hopes that they will finally see your worth? You go above and beyond, anticipate everyone’s needs and adjust your life to make it comfy for everyone else. It’s pretty tiring and you know you deserve better but just don’t know to change this dynamic. Those feelings are valid and I am here to help you take steps in the direction that honors your needs and helps you set clear boundaries. Together we will work through childhood (complex) trauma and break patterns of perfectionism, people pleasing, and codependency. You deserve reciprocal healthy relationships where your needs are met, too.

What type of Chula Vista 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 Chula Vista?
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.
