I help men & women find freedom through emotional healing. As a therapist, I know that genuine connection is a powerful healer. I know what it's like to feel like no one understands what you are going through, to care for everyone else while your story gets lost in the background. Unfortunately, I had some really "not so good" experiences with therapists, which lit a fire in me to become for others what I wish I had. You deserve the same love and care that you give others. Most of the time the healing journey ends with a newfound relationship with yourself building the bridge to who you want to be.

I am licensed as both a Marriage and Family Therapist and a Clinical Psychologist. I started practicing psychotherapy in 1993 and I love the work so much I have never done anything else. In today's world we don't take the time to listen and get to know each other. We start to suffer from depression and anxiety because we are so disconnected from each other and ourselves. I am trying to change that with one person at a time. I invite you to visit me and see how we can create a journey of healing together.

Beginning a new job, becoming a parent, moving to a new state, figuring out a new norm after a global pandemic...life transitions are extremely difficult to maneuver. I provide clients with a safe space to unload and assess what is and is not working in their lives. I want to understand you and your specific method of functioning; then maybe I can offer some tools, perspectives, and supports that will make daily life a bit easier.

Sometimes the world just feels like too much--too much work, too much stress, too much pain, too much numbness. There can be so much in your day to day that it's hard to figure out where to start, let alone where to go. Therapy can be a wonderful space to figure out what’s not working, and give you the tools you need to make changes to attain the life that you really want, and be the person that you really want to be.

Nobody’s childhood dream was to grow up and feel overwhelmed, alone, stuck or unworthy. I aim to help individuals heal from trauma-related issues such as anxiety, depression, and relationship/family issues. If you find yourself living without a navigation system to understand emotional terrain or trauma that impacts your well-being; you are not alone. All of us go through rough patches in our lives. My approach is specific to meet your unique needs in a safe and non-judgemental space.

Have you been questioning whether or not you will ever be able to move past the past? These are some of the very issues that I can help you identify and process during our work together. I have spent over 3000 hours helping children, adolescents, and adults move past their childhood and adult traumas.

This may not be an easy time in your life and I respect your courage to reach out for help. Hiding fear of failure or family pressure to be perfect and make it look effortless is a daily struggle. I know you can be overwhelmed. Frustrated and angry. I have lived it and have decades of experience. After facing the pressure from parents, peers, or yourself, you need a place to sort out who you are and how you fit into these pieces. You may be looking for a safe place to work through your challenges, such as when you are experiencing anxiety or depression, or even a unique cultural experience that you feel nobody understands.

Feeling pain, or feeling lonely and sad? Or maybe you feel emptiness. A huge hole of emptiness and you have no idea how to fill it. Life can be hard. Even when we do our very best, sometimes it just doesn't feel like it's enough. We can have feelings of pain, sadness, anxiety and other hard feelings we try to ignore and push away. Maybe you best is never good enough and you're tired of trying. Feelings of abandonment, emotional neglect, failure, bullying and traumas can stay with us throughout our lives until we seek out healing. We can embark on this journey healing together. I'm here to help.

Struggling with substance use and feel rehab isn’t an option? Leaving your family, job, school or other responsibilities for an extended period is not always needed to get yourself healthy and on the right track. If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, I know the challenges of this lifestyle. Being caught in the cycle of addiction is hard...feelings of anxiety, fear, failure, unworthiness, and shame. You may have tried stopping on your own, only to find yourself engaging in the same unhelpful behavior. Breaking this cycle on your own is tough! Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab.

Feeling lonely, sad, or depressed? Are you tired of people telling you to get over it or questioning how come you’re still mourning? Someone died, so no you can’t just get over it because you’re still in pain and hurting. Why can’t they see that? You’re trying the best that you can to process their death. Perhaps, you lose your temper easily, yell or scream at people, or say hurtful things to loved ones? Do you get mad over little things or find yourself unable to control your anger? It may be time to seek therapy to process your loss, to improve your relationship, so you don't lose your job, and to keep your friends.

What type of Lake Forest 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 Lake Forest?
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.
