I specialize in working with mood disorders, personality disorders , dissociative disorders and addiction/recovery.
Does any of this sound familiar? Life feels disconnected from meaning, purpose or joy. The same situations keep repeating themselves. Emotional difficulties are getting in the way of relationships or personal growth. These are a few of the situations someone may seek me out for therapy. During the therapeutic process, we will work together to connect underlying factors with your present circumstances. This will work to give you back control of your life and gain freedom from the fears, anxieties and blind spots that have been in the drivers seat.

Unresolved trauma leaves us feeling broken, damaged and disconnected from our true selves. You may be fed up with how trauma or PTSD is impacting your life, feeling discouraged and possibly even exhausted with how much energy it takes to cope on a daily basis. You might not even remember a time when things didn't feel this way. But one thing is for sure: you're ready for some relief. You're ready to find hope and healing. You're ready to find your own personal worth and value. Most of all you're ready to be transformed body, mind and spirit!

Substance use is a symptom of something larger that is troubling you. Most behaviors occur due to a reward or perceived loss which drives the behavior despite negative consequences. I will help you identify fears and perceived secondary losses so you can overcome these behaviors and move towards a more positive way of meeting your needs.

We are living in uncertain and uneasy times right now. I believe that taking care of your mental health is a necessity and not a luxury. If you are struggling to navigate your emotions you are not alone. We are seeing a rise in anxiety, depression & conflict within relationships. Are you arguing with your partner & struggling to find common ground, or holding resentments? Are you feeling more anxious & fearful or find yourself crying more often and not feeling like yourself?

Therapy is a highly individualized process: it can be about bringing awareness to challenges you're experiencing and giving you the skills and insight you need to change how you interact with them and it can also be about reprocessing distressing events so as to be able to move past them. Therapy can be beneficial for those experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, behavioral disturbances, trauma-related distress, panic attacks, and/or relationship difficulties. In therapy we can work collaboratively to uncover, identify, and adapt patterns to reduce these struggles.

What type of Encinitas 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 Encinitas?
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.
