"Change" is possible and the vast majority of us need guidance and support for it to come to fruition. I believe in the power of building supportive and healthy relationships to aid with healing. Relationships have an extraordinary capacity to deeply wound or profoundly heal human lives. I have certainly experienced them in both ways. Healing happens when you allow yourself to uncover underlying needs that were never actualized in a safe place. I want to create a space for you where you feel understood, cared for, and challenged. My goal is that you leave therapy with a revived heart and a renewed mind!.

Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and I have been for the past 10 years. I focus on brief, solution-focused therapy modalities and I operate from a systems model perspective. What this means for you is that I try to help my clients put their current struggles in the context of their existing patterns of behavior and learn how to cope in the midst of external factors that might be out of a client's (or any of our) control. I very firmly believe in the therapeutic concept of unconditional positive regard and try to make my sessions warm places for my clients to feel safe!

I became a Marriage Family Therapist due to my own struggles and pains trying to understand who I was and who I was meant to be as a man, and as a father. This drove me to seek help from a therapist for my own issues. It was then I knew that I wanted to walk with others in experiencing hope and experiencing transformation.

Finding a sense of self in the world isn't easy. When your identity has been formed through others' expectations, it can be difficult to know where to start when you decide to put yourself first. You might go through depression or severe anxiety when you realize you want more for your life than a mediocre job. You might become more aware of your relationship problems, and don't know how to change your role in them. You might find yourself getting frustrated with your child because their mistakes and behaviors have you thinking you're a failure. Breaking out of that and finding your inner being, is the first step to wholeness.

Feelings, feelings, feelings. They can be complex painful, rewarding, and sometimes, confusing. Sometimes those feelings and emotions consume us, other times we avoid them either way; they affect us. In this space, I hope to help guide your understanding of what you are experiencing. To acknowledge triggers, and normalize some of your behaviors without excusing them. In all, my goal as a therapist is to create an environment where you feel listened too and important .

What type of Downey 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Downey?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
