I offer Psychodynamic and Integrative Psychotherapy and, depending on severity of need, TF-CBT, Recovery work and Hypnotherapy.
I have limited availability, but have contacts who may have more openings. Many professionals, parents, and early-career adults have found that therapy helps them learn skills to address worry, to better balance self-care and to become more present, mindful and effective in their life and work. I offer the understanding and research-guided psychological perspectives that help you bounce back from crisis, career paralysis and loneliness. I am also skilled in Recovery work for Depression, Anxiety, including Social Anxiety and OCD, Caregiving and Cancer crises

I work from a psychodynamic approach with an attachment lens and use the EFT model when working with couples.
A lot of times we feel stuck in life. Life can be chaotic and lonely. It is hard to make sense of the suffering sometimes. Our trauma, depression and anxiety take over the driver's seat. We can feel overwhelmed and life becomes much more difficult. Therapy is a journey we take to unpack, understand and tend to our wounds. Feeling seen and heard can be a transformational journey to feel unstuck and live a satisfying, empowered, and a healthier life.

I work with each person from an individualized perspective, addressing issues from a psychodynamic , cognitive and psychoanalytic framework.
Are you looking for a place to begin healing? Have you tried many other things, only to feel disappointed that life's challenges continue to be more complex than you thought? An effective therapy process creates space and understanding for the purpose of transforming life's struggles and disappointments. In the process, a renewed capacity for more satisfying relationships, greater effectiveness, resiliency and coping skills begin to emerge. Life becomes meaningful and purposeful. In a professional, caring environment, I seek to uncover the patterns and difficulties of the past and create an environment where healing and recovery can take place.

Together we set goals that are meaningful to you! I integrate various modes of therapy including psychodynamic , cognitive behavioral, as well as EMDR for trauma reprocessing which can provide relief from past wounds and practical tools that can help you feel better daily.
My aim is to provide a safe and supportive space for clients to explore and process their thoughts and emotions and to find clarity and healing through insight, self-love and compassion. In my practice I often work with individuals struggling with depression and anxiety and couples who are in pain. Often, our current struggles may be the result of trauma that we have suffered in our childhood and with our family of origin. Exploration of the past and tending to old wounds can be a first step in freeing one from rigid and limited thinking and enabling us to live in the moment and to enjoy the present.

Most people who seek counseling do so because something in their life is not quite right. Maybe you have already identified what is off in your life – depression, anxiety, a toxic relationship, a past trauma, a painful life transition. Maybe you are the family member or friend that people generally rely on; you give to others freely but sometimes feel as though you are running on “low” and have few places or people to turn to for your own needs. Or perhaps you just know that something is off, that you could be happier or more fulfilled than you are currently.

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.

My ideal clients are people who come in to fix something in their lives. It could be problems from their childhood, struggles in school or problems in the workplace, or conflict with their relationships or families. They are able to acknowledge their issue/issues and they want to stretch and grow to learn how to live a life that is more fulfilling, void of their particular struggle. My ideal clients acknowledge that they have an issue with themselves or others that are affecting the quality of their lives. They are eager to move forward to identify what their needs are and put forth the effort to meet their goals

“Why do I still feel so stuck?” If you’ve been sober for any significant amount of time, chances are, this thought has occurred to you at least once. You did the work, why is it still so difficult? We are promised “just get clean and everything else will follow”, but rarely is ever that simple. Often, sobriety grants the necessary stability to allow strength and space to work on what really holds us back in life. Things like, codependency, trauma, anxiety, depression, executive dysfunction, the list goes on and on. If you're stuck in the same patterns and struggling to figure out how to actually apply what you know, I'm your girl.

I provide professional, caring psychoanalytic oriented psychotherapy with a focus on understanding an individual's experiences, values, beliefs and how these are connected to present day behaviors, relationships, and ongoing life experiences. I view psychotherapy/psychoanalysis as a life process involving a person's mental, physical, emotional, environmental, spiritual and dream experiences. I regard each of my clients with a genuine interest and respect. During our work we will generate insights, create an atmosphere for learning, establish potential life goals, process and work through challenging and painful memories, and be more fully present in everyday life situations. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and teens.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Laguna Hills, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
