I practice each intervention through distinctive situations my clients may experience when living with trauma and mental health which can develop symptoms of depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, and co-occurring addictive disorders.
Childhood trauma can cripple us, it creates overpowering ‘intense’ emotions such as anxiety, depression, and anger when left unattended which begins to create physical symptoms to defend our bodies from the internal wounds. Has there ever been a time in your life where you have experienced this reaction? Are you experiencing these feelings based on current or past trauma from childhood, early teens, adolescence, adulthood, or as a senior? I aim to utilize a variety of actionable techniques to help reduce trauma related symptoms and make lasting changes in life.

Welcome to my practice. I have about 15 years of clinical experience and have been featured on NBC/KCAL/HLN as an expert psychologist. I work primarily with men who have hit “rock bottom” and would like help getting up. These men are often in crisis when we first meet. The issues I address are typically related to unhealthy sexual behaviors, infidelity, financial recklessness, gambling, drugs/alcohol, dishonesty/lying, and relational conflicts. My therapy approach is a combination of psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, and the 12-Step recovery model. I also share insight from my own painful but redemptive recovery journey.

I see the role of a therapist as helping to facilitate positive change by collaborating in a non-judgmental and mutual relationship. I endeavor to help my clients develop self-awareness and achieve their potential, enabling them to find their own answers and make transformative changes. I sensitively deal with individual and systematic/cultural influences to ensure clients’ goals and actions are manageable, realistic, and sustainable. For me, recognizing everyone’s identity and experiences, and inclusion is crucial to implementing strategies and tools that allow each individual to thrive, and to feel appreciated, seen, and heard.

Do you lack emotional connectedness with your loved ones or suffer from anxiety or depression that inhibits you from forming genuine relationships? You are not alone! Every individual at their core, values intimate, personal relationships with their significant others, family members, and friends. People often come to therapy because they struggle or experience unhappiness in their lives and are unaware of underlying symptoms such as depression, anxiety, shame, low self-esteem, low motivation, or emotional and psychological distress. I can help you address and move through those issues to create a purposeful and meaningful life.

When we are exposed to trauma at an early age, it can seriously impact how we feel about ourselves and our relationships with others. Trauma can also profoundly affect whether we feel this is a safe world and can contribute to depression, anxiety, and relational/familial issues. My practice is from a strengths-based, trauma-informed perspective with a non-judgmental framework. I aim to understand clients’ internal responses and to provide more options for emotional regulation and problem-solving.

Our life experiences can lead us to question our identity and purpose in the world we live in. This can lead us to anxiety, depression, and trauma. Do you want to improve how you face challenges, function in your relationships, and face overwhelming feelings? I place heavy importance on addressing trauma. Trauma disintegrates the parts that make up your whole self, which can leave aspects of who you are hidden from your awareness. Left unaddressed, anxiety and depression can worsen, which can rob you of the necessary connection that all human beings need to thrive. I aim to help you process unresolved trauma.
