Fred Rogers said, “It’s the people we love the most who can make us feel the gladdest… and the maddest! Love and anger are such a puzzle! It’s hard for us, as adults, to understand and manage our angry feelings toward parents, spouses, and children, or to keep their anger toward us in perspective. It’s a different kind of anger from the kind we may feel toward strangers because it is so deeply intertwined with caring and attachment.” Does this statement resonate with you? If so, you are not alone.

Shame. We all experience shame don't we? We experience shame we don't feel like we're enough. When we feel like we're too much. When we feel like no one seems to get us. When we struggle with pain, loss, grief, and brokenness. We experience shame from the things we've done and the things done to us. Shame causes us to cover up and hide even though we desperately long to be seen, known, and loved.

The issues in life often leave us feeling alone, isolated, frustrated, and empty. By using mindfulness, I help you learn to cope and live a life that is centered and grounded in healthy choices; which, help mitigate these painful feelings. Make the call. Change your life. This is not an easy process, I agree, however, it is well worth it. Investing in your mental health is the single best choice you can make.

People seek out therapy for many reasons. From life transitions, challenges in relationships, self-explorations of identities, to emotional pains such as anxiety, depression, trauma, loss, and grief. No reasons are too small; no reasons are too big. Perhaps you are looking for ways to make sense of a challenging area of your life. Perhaps you are wondering if there is something you can do differently to feel better. Perhaps you are questioning if anyone can understand how you feel. I am curious to learn about your story. I invite you to contact me if you are curious to learn more about how we might work together.

Though I work with most issues, I specialize in helping people recover from complex trauma. People with narcissistic, abusive, or neglectful parents or partners sometimes develop issues with trusting themselves, have difficulty maintaining close relationships, struggle with an inner critic, vacillate often between depression and anxiety, lack a solid sense of identity, or feel a sense of emptiness when their lives seem great on paper. Sometimes that trauma can even become part of one's identity - I work with clients to build insight, boundaries, self-compassion, and acceptance to free themselves from it & live more fulfilling lives.

I work well with teens and adults, individuals or couples and families, and I specialize with ethnic minority issues and LGBTQIA+ issues. We can work on current issues such as adjusting our thought processes to combat unhealthful or inaccurate thoughts. We can work on relaxation and coping skills to get you through the tough times. We can also work on past issues, revisiting memories from the past and childhood. We would reprocess those memories, use new words to accurately describe the memories, which then foster a new relationship with the memory, hopefully making it less impactful in your current state.

What type of Laguna Hills 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 Laguna Hills?
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.
