When we are exposed to trauma at an early age it can seriously impact how we feel about ourselves and relationships with others. It can also profoundly affect whether we feel this is a safe world and contribute to depression , anxiety, and relationship/family issues. I practice from a holistic, strengths-based perspective to understand clients’ internal responses and more options for emotional regulation and problem-solving. I aim to be present, hold a judgement-free and safe space, and be willing to work with where we are in our journey.

"If I only knew then what I know now." People often think about how their lives might be different if they had made different choices. Many experience the outgrowth of therapy in similar ways to the maturity, wisdom and peace gained in the latter stages of life. Within the confines of a safe and nurturing environment, I can help you explore why you think, feel and behave the way you do. With me walking alongside you, you can begin to develop a stronger sense of who you are and make positive changes in your life and relationships.

I specialize in treating anxiety and depression , and working with deep-seating patterns of behavior that are resistant to change.
Looking for a therapist for the first time? It's pretty scary, isn't it. Here's what you should look for... First, research shows that therapists with lots of experience tend to get better results for their clients. (I've been counseling for over 30 years.) Second, you need to have a sense that your therapist hears you and understands what your problems are. Third, you need to have a sense that your therapist knows what he's doing and can help YOU. It's an intuitive feeling -- go with it.

Everyone experiences times in their life when they feel at the end of their rope. It takes a tremendous amount of courage to seek support, whether it be for yourself or for your child.

Therapy can help you overcome challenges such as addressing negative feelings, making behavioral change, managing a transition, or dealing with grief, loss, and trauma. Therapy is also a great place to learn about strengthening relationships, setting goals, and challenging yourself to be the person you want to be. I have been working with and advocating for individuals, children, and families since 2005. I welcome all clients, but found my techniques to be particularly helpful in working with anxiety, depression , life transition, trauma history, PTSD, grief or loss, and couple & family dynamic issues.

Our experiences include working with people to explore self-doubt, fear of failure and the unknown, social rejection, anxiety, depression , relationships, dating/marital related issues, perfectionism, stress, work/life balance, trauma, and overall well-being.
Life can be overwhelming and sometimes we just want to be understood while also developing the tools to cope with and overcome personal challenges. Often we search for answers to help us understand more about our struggles, but some conclusions may be inhibiting our growth more than empowering the strengths within. Many of us spend time comparing our lives to others, leading to more questions about who we are and why we can't seem to manage. While therapy is a place to explore those questions, it is also a space free of judgment that enables you to better clarify the barriers keeping you from feeling your best self.

Has trauma, anxiety, or depression interfered with the potential to become the best version of yourself? We often feel defined by traumatic or emotionally difficult experiences that often leave us feeling stuck in place rather than moving forward towards our goals. I’m here to provide a safe, affirming space for you to develop an understanding of yourself to overcome past experiences or fears that define you. Our work together will be met with unconditional acceptance, creative approaches, and the utmost compassion.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Fullerton. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
