I use a variety of approaches including ACT , CBT, mindfulness techniques, psychodynamic therapy, and person-centered therapy.
My approach is that there is no one size fits all type of therapy. I treat each person like the unique human that they are and tailor my services to fit their needs. You might be someone who has been cruising along just fine in life. You get things done. You're surviving. But perhaps you sense something is off. Are you thriving? Is there space to live life in a more fulfilling way? Or maybe you've been struggling for a while. You've tried to help yourself in various ways. But nothing has helped long-term. No matter where you are at in your journey there is always room for growth and a little extra support from a helpful therapist.

As a therapist, I am committed to empowering clients to live their best life, have meaningful and loving relationships, and most importantly, in the words of Virginia Satir, "help them have stars in their eyes and truly feel their own value." At times, as we move through the different stages of our life, we find ourselves stuck due to our unproductive internal dialogue of shame and guilt, the need to be perfect, and the daily attempts to be who the rest of the world wants us to be. This leads us to feeling broken and unable to love ourselves or truly connect with others.

I believe solutions should be intuitive, uncomplicated, and tailored to you (as what might work for others, might not work for you). I also believe that you shouldn't be treated and viewed like another textbook. Therefore, I believe solutions shouldn't mainly come from theories, studies, research, etc. (which sometimes can be complex, confusing, and overwhelming). Together, we'll explore what works for you and what doesn't. Occasionally, not everything has or will have a solution; rather, it's going through the processes and reflections of your journey, that serves as a catalyst to change, transformation, healing, and/or growth.

**I AM NOT CURRENTLY TAKING ON ANY NEW CLIENTS** One thing all have in common as human beings is a natural drive to discover and hold on to a strong sense of self as we navigate the world. When the challenges we face in life cause us to question our identity, this doesn't mean you are broken - it means that you are human.

Being human is hard! Managing relationships (familial, romantic, platonic, professional, even the relationship with ourselves), feeling confident and fulfilled in our careers, finding healthy and lasting love, it all can feel like an impossible task. We were never given a manual on how to do this! And while we are incredibly resilient, some of the coping mechanisms we have developed throughout our lives may not be serving us anymore. Whether you are stuck in a pattern that is no longer working for you, facing a new challenge, or wanting to improve the overall quality of your life, therapy can help!

Trauma, anxiety, and addiction can make you feel stuck. The most important step towards healing is to address the unresolved emotion inside you. Healing requires feelings. Acceptance slowly dissolves pain. When we function from the fear and scarring of our trauma, the cycles continue until we learn how to transmute that energy into love. I apply a Holistic approach that integrates physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual forms of well-being, addressing the “whole” self. Through a holistic framework tailored to your unique needs, the goal is to support you develop a deeper understanding of the self on all these levels.

I specialize in mindfulness- and compassion-based interventions, particularly Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ).
"At the center of your being, you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want." -Lao Tzu. I believe this to be true for all individuals, though depression, anxiety, and other mental health symptoms can obscure this understanding, leaving us lost and confused along the way. I work with individuals and couples who have deviated from or lost sight of their values, and are looking for guidance in defining and living a life of peace and purpose.

Making the decision to seek therapy can be difficult, whether it is for yourself, your child or a family member who is in need of support. Seeking help is not a sign of weakness, but strength to decide to change and be in charge of your own transformation, whatever that may be. I integrate the use of clinical Art Therapy to aid a client’s process and externalize challenges they may have, including issues of trauma, eating disorders, self-harm, grief and loss, medical trauma and major life transitions. I am dedicated to having clients feel empowered and to identify their strengths with self- acceptance and the healing process.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists

Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy evidence-based?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of many approaches within the field of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence-based treatment framework that has been shown to be effective in treating many mental health conditions including depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and OCD.

What is the difference between Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Despite being part of the CBT family of therapies, ACT differs from other approaches within this field in several important ways: First, it emphasizes acceptance over change; second, it focuses on present moment experiences rather than past experiences or future events; third it focuses on what clients can do rather than what they cannot do; and fourth it emphasizes values rather than symptoms as targets for change.

What credentials will a certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist have?

A certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist in El Segundo will have completed specialized training in this approach at a university accredited by The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT).

How long does ACT typically take?

ACT is a relatively short-term therapy that focuses on helping you accept the things you can't change and commit to the things you can. It typically takes about eight weeks of weekly sessions with a therapist to complete the entire process. You may need to see your therapist weekly or biweekly, depending on the circumstances surrounding your situation.
