To the person in the process of transgender transition, I can offer counseling, education, and empathic acceptance.
Life can sometimes seem a painful and distressing journey. We may struggle with feelings and thoughts and may come to believe people around us do not understand us or appreciate the situation in which we find ourselves. When this happens, it can feel like our goals and and dreams are quickly receding out of reach. We search not only for the reasons for our distress but importantly relief and resolution to bring us back to the calm and safe harbor of our previous state of mind and daily routines. You have tried several approaches and strategies and yet here you are. Nevertheless, each step brings hope and resolution.

My caseload is currently full, but I am providing supervision to pre licensed clinicians who can see clients via Aetna, CalOptima or Cigna and can facilitate a referral for new clients. An intention I carry in my work is to aid clients in healing their relationship with their bodies, whether because of experiences with childhood or complex trauma, from patterns of disordered eating, from being transgender or gender non-conforming, and/or living with chronic pain or chronic illness. All of these experiences can complicate our relationship with our body, but with a safe and supportive space like therapy, we can heal this relationship.

Don't wait another day to become your best self. The first step in seeking out a therapist can be scary. I know because I have been there before. You've already taken that first step which takes a lot of courage. Life presents challenges and sometimes these challenges can feel impossible to overcome on your own.

You hope for a therapist who won't shy away from the difficult topics. Every part of you is welcome here. As a trans therapist and HAES-informed provider, I believe that you deserve a non-judgemental space where you can build a sense of safety and trust on your own terms. You want to shed feelings of shame and guilt that keep you looping back to unhealthy behaviors. I believe in your ability to learn new coping skills and your capacity to become even more resilient. If you decide you want to, together we can face the memories and emotions you've had to avoid in order to survive. You choose the destination, I’ll help you get there.

I provide individual, couples, and family therapy at my private practice on the Huntington Beach Hospital campus. Much of my work is with clients struggling with anxiety, dysphoria, or depression, or in their relationships with their romantic partners/spouses or their families-of-origin. I find strengths they've forgotten they have that can be used to defeat their problems. I use Narrative and Cognitive-Behavioral therapies and when working with couples I use Emotion Focused Therapy. Research has shown that 70-75% of couples who undergo EFT become closer and more intimate and 90% of them show significant improvements.

Stop punishing yourself for being human. It's ok to be strange, to have FOMO, to not have things figured out, or to have existential dread. You are still allowed to buy latte's and enjoy life. You do not have to prove your goodness, to defend your choices, or to earn happiness. If you're seeking therapy, there is a chance that life experiences have knocked you off course. And part of you is probably saying "it's not that bad." That's not for us to say! If things can be better for you, we'll make them better.

INTERRACIAL COUPLES…. Culturally diverse factors may exist but the underlining issues threatening your happiness are the same as any other relationship. Emotional detachment leaving you feeling isolated and disconnected when there has been a shift in focus to career, friends, children, hobbies or social activities. Your partner fails to express gratitude or appreciation for the contribution you make to the relationship leaving you agitated and bitter. Sensing a loss of sexual intimacy or struggling with physical affection. Toxic Masculinity or Femininity may have left you defenseless against verbal or physical abuse.

I aim to support my clients through different transitions and stages throughout their lives. With all the information we are constantly taking in, it is easy to lose ourselves or feel stuck in different versions of our stories. As a result, this can leave us feeling an array of different emotions and confused on where to start. However, the great thing about feeling lost is that it gives us the opportunity to find ourselves again. My goal is to help you disentangle yourself from those stories and embrace all the parts of your own, by reclaiming the authors pen and adding chapters towards telling a story that feels authentically you

Counseling is a collaborative effort between the counselor and client. Professional counselors help clients identify goals and potential solutions to problems which cause emotional turmoil; seek to improve communication and coping skills; strengthen self-esteem; and promote behavior change and optimal mental health. How long does counseling take? Ideally, counseling is terminated when the problem that you pursued counseling for becomes more manageable or is resolved.

Throughout our lives, we all have experienced feelings of depression, anxiety, and anger. These emotions leave you feeling insecure, shameful, lonely, unworthy and stuck in unhealthy patterns of behavior. Trauma can have negative emotional and physical effects and can lead to family/relationship issues. I specialize in solution-focused brief therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness and CBT. These approaches allow me to work with the client to decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression and other health/behavioral issues.

What type of Huntington Beach 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 Huntington Beach?
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.
