Happiness is your birth right rooted in healthy relationships. We all secretly seek a secure relationship that allows “me to be me”, feeling accepted, respected, and loved. As a couples therapist and relationship coach, I believe, regardless of the nature of the relationship or the issues, together we can discover the roadblocks and welcome happiness. With a holistic approach as a couples therapist, Reiki practitioner and a yoga teacher I have been trained to understand Heart matters and help people to bring passion and joy to life.

Making the choice to go to therapy isn't always the easiest to do. Taking the first step in admitting you may need help is the hardest decision. Therapy isn't meant to make you feel as though there is something wrong with you. It's to allow you to be the best version of yourself possible in order to lead a happier more fulfilling life. Sometimes we just need to feel understood and validated. I provide therapy in a safe and non-judgmental atmosphere for those struggling with mental health issues.

Many of us are striving to feel more productive, peaceful and self-confident. Unfortunately, anxiety, depression, trauma, complex relationships, illness, family problems, poor self-esteem, neurodiversity, or other challenges can inhibit us from achieving our goals. That is why working with a therapist can be a great choice. Teaming up with an attentive, well-trained therapist you will likely feel less alone and your problems will feel more manageable. You might be surprised that when you and your therapist examine your difficulties from new angles, you or your pre/teen will grow and change in ways you never expected.

There is hope and healing – it is never too late. I am a safe place to tell your story and explore new ways of being. I can help you uncover the toxic cycles and unproductive patterns that are keeping you from living your best life. Issues like low self-esteem, conflicted relationships, life transitions and personal losses can make you feel alone, sad and uncertain about the future. Or maybe you feel stuck, anxious and stressed because you make the same mistakes over and over again. I can provide a sanctuary where you are heard, supported and grow to become the person you are meant to be.

Discovering that your partner has had an affair is a life altering experience. You feel that your partner is not who you thought they were, your relationship is not what you thought it was; in essence your whole world has been turned upside down. Learning of a partner's affair often leads us to "rethink" our whole lives.This crisis can serve as a stimulus for stepping back and taking stock of your life, carefully considering the kind of future you want to have with or without your partner.

Hi! My name is Naomi. With over 20 years in the field of psychotherapy, I bring the education, experience, and skills to help you through the issues you're facing. I treat people, not symptoms, by addressing the whole of you with mind and body interventions. After our first conversation, I will tell you if I'm not the best person to help you and suggest a referral if we don't "click". I do not work with any one specific group or symptom and would never want to limit my practice to one specialty so my profile may sound a little different.

Personal freedom and well-being is possible Now. I address the systems of body, heart, and mind, using them as vehicles to gain greater insight, self-awareness, and freedom. The body system entails the physicality of life. The heart system encompasses the spacious awareness of love, compassion, and joy. The mind system holds the mind-states of emotion, thoughts, and patterned beliefs that either turn us away from Light or towards suffering - and when there is alignment and integration through all these systems healing occurs. Learn how to create the life you want & be able to enjoy it too!

Can heartbreak be cured? If so, how long will it take? Must it hurt so much? Is therapy going to help? Sadly, a broken heart cannot be cured; as with the loss of any beloved, grieving is unavoidable. But yes, a therapist helps by journeying alongside you, listening, offering comfort and wisdom gained from years of helping others regain their footing and with time, trust in love again. Why not you?

What type of Irvine 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 Irvine?
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.
