This, along with providing a safe environment to talk about and explore the feelings that are avoided by substance use is what sets my practice apart.
Drawing from 28 years working in the addiction recovery profession, while working in residential and outpatient treatment, my practice helps those who would like to pursue recovery from alcohol or drug addiction without the cost and time commitment of formal rehab. The ideal client for my practice is one who is experiencing consequences from their alcohol and/or drug use and wants to get sober or explore the possibility of such. I also work with families that have an addicted loved one and would like some direction. I have been sober myself for 30 years and have a passion to helps others receive the gift of recovery.

Life can be unpredictable, beautiful, unmanageable, fulfilling, disappointing, and so much more. Therapy is an opportunity for us to dive deeper into these complex experiences, reoccurring patterns and difficult obstacles that are blocking us from connecting with ourselves, others, and a higher quality of life. I thoroughly enjoy my work and am passionate about providing space with gentle guidance for you to explore what matters most. Outside of the therapy room, I love finding new trails with my pup, Clio. I have a passion for traveling and learning from the places I visit. I thrive off of good coffee and frequent the belly laughs!

Perhaps you are struggling with anxious or depressing feelings. You may have been hurt by others or encountered painful life circumstances that have led to being overwhelmed by the stressors of life. The process of therapy assists with finding the words for one's thoughts and feelings that may have been eluding you. Therapy is a place to know oneself and to be known by another. The process can result in an increased understanding of your actions and choices along with a place to work through emotional injuries. The result can be a higher level of personal satisfaction and an increased ability to handle life.

Have you suffered the loss of a pet or loved one and struggling to find someone who “gets it”? I am here to help with these and more. We have all been faced with major changes and sacrifices since 2020. Some changes have left scares and holes in us.

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.

MEET DR. BROWNING -- "Wtih all our patients, we equip and empower them with the tools they need to get from overwhelmed to overcomer, using practical Biblical wisdom that leads to real change and victory in their personal struggles, and in their most important love relationships. Our focus always aims at finding lasting solutions.We do this in what we call Mindset-Reset Therapy (MRT)™. Throughout my career as a therapist I've observed that many forms of counseling produce changes that don't last over time. Why? Because the focus is on problems instead of finding simple choices and solutions for major and dramatic breakthroughs.

What type of Los Alamitos 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 Los Alamitos?
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.
