For over 20 years as a psychologist I have helped people struggling with a variety of issues including life transitions, relationship challenges, work stress, and recovery from anxiety and depression. My approach is two-fold. I want to address the specific issues that have led you to therapy at this time of your life, and I will use therapeutic approaches that are compatible with your unique personality, problems and learning style. I believe that everyone has the power to reexamine and alter situations and tensions in their lives. Clients describe my approach as caring and compassionate but at the same time straight forward.

I work well with individuals who are seeking to learn more holistic ways to address their emotional and relational challenges whether they be family of origin issues, trauma, the challenges of parenting a child with special needs, chronic illness, anxiety, or depression. My general frame work is that you cannot separate the body from the mind nor can you separate a person from their life time of experiences, therefore working with all of these systems is a highly effective way to improve happiness, decrease anxiety and stress, and increase coping skills to manage life with more ease and improved relationships.

You've lost someone who really means a lot to you. Either through death or through the loss of a relationship. You're experiencing a transition and you're not sure you're strong enough to make it through. We all go through life transitions and grieving at some point during our life span. There are times when we need assistance navigating this process. Grief can come in many different forms; due to the death of a loved one; an unfulfilled dream, divorce, relocation, or some other life transition.

Perhaps you are feeling anxious, sad, or “stuck.” You may be struggling with a transition, such as becoming a new parent, starting a new job, coping with a loss, or adapting to life after a difficult medical diagnosis. Or, perhaps you find yourself overwhelmed by fear and negative feelings for no apparent reason at all. If any of this sounds familiar to you, residual, unprocessed feelings from the past may be holding you back from living the life you desire. At Onward Healing, we specialize in using EMDR therapy to help you heal the wounds of your past, to enrich your experience of the present, and to clear a path onward.

Navigating life can be a challenge. As a psychologist, I help you identify: (1) problem areas and patterns that are causing distress, (2) the source(s) of these issues, and (3) ways to enact change. Depending upon your individual characteristics, life experiences, history, and cultural background, difficulties can present themselves in numerous ways and color how we experience ourselves, our environment, and our relationships. Furthermore, external circumstances, often beyond our control, can cause or contribute to our struggles and it is important that we have appropriate and effective coping strategies to manage these.

You are a complex being. You've had painful life experiences that continue to impact you even though you don't want them to. You may find yourself feeling stuck, reacting in ways that don't make sense, and reliving past experiences over and over in your thoughts or even in your dreams. Fear comes out of nowhere, and it is exhausting being on guard all the time. It may feel like you can't trust anyone, sometimes not even yourself. But healing is possible. You deserve joy, peace, and deep healing. When you heal, you heal the generations before and after you.

Life is filled with good times and bad, struggles and joy, ups and downs. I approach therapy with the goal to make life better. I have met incredible people in my life, and I have enjoyed hearing and helping people through their journeys. We are all human, and I think it's important to be very human in therapy. Even as a psychologist, I struggle at times too. Therapy is a wonderful place to learn how you impact the world, how the world impacts you, and to take the control back. After all, we can't change the things that happen around us, but we can change what we do about them.

What type of Long Beach 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 Long Beach?
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.
