I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, substance use , bipolar disorder, sleep disorders, and issues surrounding gender and sexuality.
Do you need a little more support and structure in your life? I run a variety of high energy groups to help keep you on track, including "I Hate Weekends" (a Sunday support group for people who tend to isolate on the weekends), "You Can't Stop The Waves, But You Can Learn To Surf" (a cognitive therapy group for depression and anxiety), and "Back to Life, Back to Reality" (a life transition group). It's amazing what can happen when people stop being polite and start getting real...

My clients generally fall into two categories. Many clients are functioning just fine in many aspects of their lives but have some trauma/stress, relationship/employment, self esteem issues, substance use or mood/anxiety disorders that just keep them feeling stuck in an unhealthy pattern. There are also those whose lives are crashing down, with little hope that things can get better. There are no issues too big or too small that aren't worth exploring if they are causing distress. Clients come with baggage in search of a lighter load. That is what we work on together.

I imagine you're leafing through profiles, trying to find the right fit. Sometimes it's just about taking ONE step in A direction, even if it's not the perfect one. I love working with individuals and couples managing transition (engaged couples, newlyweds, parents, grievers (both pregnancy-related and general loss), and career/school changers) as well as those feeling stuck. Leveraging my training in modalities such as CBT, DBT, and EFT, I have successfully helped clients navigate anxiety, depression, trauma, low self-esteem, substance use , parenting difficulties, relationship distress, and more - and I'd love to help you too.

I treat several types of people: those with Depression (especially the treatment-resistant type); Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD); Substance Use Disorder (SUD); and those engaged with existential considerations (meaning, purpose, drive). In many cases - even including those with SUD - the addition of Ketamine can bring about successful changes many have found elusive.

As a long time industry veteran, including years of being surrounded by highly dysfunctional behavior in recording studios, I understand the stress, hours, and pressure that creative people face. Whether its depression, abusive bosses, or creative blocks, we can work on unraveling the problems and getting through them. Similar to the "man behind the curtain" in the Wizard of Oz, there may be subconscious factors that are influencing your feelings, thoughts and decisions on a daily basis. Together we may be able to identify and neutralize any of these hidden or mysterious issues that appear to be holding you back.

I specialize in treating individuals who suffer from chronic, persistent depression or difficulty regulating emotions, and find themselves using substance abuse or other unhealthy behaviors to manage their symptoms. I join with my clients to uncover what is maintaining those unhealthy patterns and learn new skills to cope. I also work with clients to identify how developmental trauma from childhood influences their coping style, and help them develop self-compassion and acceptance as a part of healing.

Are you looking for a therapist because your relationships are out of sorts? Are you feeling stuck, depressed, anxious, isolated or afraid? Is this troubled relationship with yourself, your life partner, your children, your parents, your co-workers? Relationships affect all aspects of our lives. Communication, anger, substance abuse and life's traumas affect all of these relationships. I believe that trauma and other life disruptions are at the heart of what ails us emotionally. We don't have to live with the fall-out from negative life events forever; there are specific things we can do to heal.

You have the power to change your life. We all have moments when we struggle with periods of difficult transitions, relationship conflict and loss. At times we become overwhelmed with feelings of sadness, worry and confusion, not knowing where to turn for answers. We get disconnected from our authentic self and lose touch with our life's meaning and purpose. Together we can work to identify obstacles and formulate strategies to help you unlock your full potential, pursue your goals, and make the changes you are seeking. I will help you sort through your thoughts and feelings so you can rediscover your power and reclaim your life.

I am an eclectic therapist, meaning I do not subscribe to any one therapeutic modality as I believe the therapeutic process is fluid and as a clinician, I must be the same. I help you manage depression, anxiety, ADHD, adjustment disorder, grief/loss, PTSD, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, children and adolescents navigating the difficulties of adjusting to parent's divorcing and behavioral issues such as oppositional defiance and conduct issues. In an effort to meet my clients where they are, I will take the time needed to examine, with you, the core issues surrounding the problem and assist in developing solutions from that ground work.

Everyone can enjoy a satisfying life of love, work and play. However, we may find ourselves in personal patterns, relationships, or with life issues that keep us from living to our fullest. Though circumstances and illness are difficult, our manner of dealing with them determines whether we are happy or sad, engaged or depressed, relaxed or anxious, and even feeling physically unwell or healthy. Trauma and poor coping are often related to our past desperate attempts to take care of ourselves in difficult situations. Through a passionate, humor-filled, authentic journey we can seek to understand and change your life.

People sometimes fear that if they start therapy they will never be able to leave. Modern psychotherapy now includes tools to deal with issues in a more immediate way, with a shorter term, solution, focus. This doesn't preclude deeper work but offers clients a choice. Over more than 30 years in the field I have become skilled with both shorter term, solution focused work and depth psychology. Let's talk about what may be useful to you. of note: Problem Gambling: Treatment is FREE through the State of California. I am a provider

Do you continue to feel stuck no matter where you turn? Are you craving for a sense of relief in your life? Sometimes we don't recognize the underlying reasons for our experiences. Each individual has their own way of coping through their day to day life. I understand the first step towards the healing process is support. We heal better when we know we don’t have to walk through hardships alone.

What type of Encino 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 Encino?
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.
