"At the center of your being, you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want." -Lao Tzu. I believe this to be true for all individuals, though depression, anxiety, and other mental health symptoms can obscure this understanding, leaving us lost and confused along the way. I work with individuals and couples who have deviated from or lost sight of their values, and are looking for guidance in defining and living a life of peace and purpose.

) I use strategies like CBT, DBT , and family therapy to help you gain control and establish a secure foundation.
Does it feel like it's you against the world? I work with teens and adults who are having a tough time, acting out feelings in ways that don't get good results and not sure what else to do. You may not be satisfied with your relationships - missing a lot of red flags, or lashing out at people you wish you could feel closer to. Maybe it just doesn't feel like you belong anywhere. First let's find ways for the therapy hour to feel like one place where things can start to work better... feel safer, better understood, gaining skills to manage your emotions, learning how you come off to others and how to get better results.

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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Long Beach?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
