*Telehealth/On line services* Is your child/ teen struggling socially, emotionally, behaviorally, or with difficult thoughts? As a parent, are you overwhelmed by all of the demands of being a parent? Does your youth have a difficult time making friends or communicating with others? Is your child highly sensitive? Some kids have a difficult time managing their emotions and it may result in tantrums, isolation, or other confusing behaviors. Parents share with me they want things to get better for their child/ teen and I help by providing support and guidance to help them to reach their goals.

We all have times in our lives that are challenging and difficult but with some help we can navigate through them. In my opinion, therapy should be collaborative, compassionate, comfortable and safe. I would like for us to work together to revolve whatever issue/goal you may have. One of the most courageous decisions you’ll ever make is to finally let go of what is hurting your heart and soul.

Are you letting your emotions rule your life? Do you make decisions based on how you feel rather than what is best for you? If you answered YES then Cognitive Therapy can help you change your thinking and create the life you are seeking. Whether you are struggling with depression, panic attacks or going through life transitions, I can help you learn necessary skills to make your life a journey rather than a struggle. I feel priviledged having the opportunity to work with individuals, teach them CBT and see them transform right in front of me.

I have been a licensed therapist since 2018. Before that I was a special education teacher, working with children in a non-public school. I have 3 years of working with children and adolescents who have history or PTSD, trauma, sexual abuse, physical abuse, and general neglect. I have a year experience of working with adults who are working through grief, anxiety, stress, and self-esteem concerns, and depression. I tend to use cognitive behavioral therapy in my practice, and enjoy mixing in motivational interviewing, strength based, and solution focused therapy.

Have you lost the intimacy in your relationship? Are you miscommunicating with your partner, or have you stopped communicating at all? Or, maybe you feel like your relationship is stagnant, and not moving in the direction that you'd like it to. If so, I am a psychologist who has successfully worked with many couples going through these stages. I use mindfulness, which helps couples to stop judging and to start communicating again. Change and progress is usually possible from the first session, but it all depends on each partner's willingness to take a step back and re-assess.

Life can be hard and at some point in our lives we may feel stuck with certain challenges. Getting support from someone on the outside can sometimes help you understand more clearly what is going on. We can uncover the obstacles that are holding you back and explore how you can find more peace in your life. I work with people on a wide array of issues that include difficult relationships, depression, anxiety, life transitions, parenting, grief, and loss. I also do a lot of couples work so I can also assist with relationship issues with intimate partners.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in West Park, Irvine and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
