It is isolating when it's just you vs. your struggles. As YOUR therapist, I help you transform your pain into personal power when your anxiety or depression takes over at the worst possible moments. It's confusing wrestling with day-to-day pain, anger and loss. This period of time can feel overwhelming & crippling. It may affect your relationships with family, friends colleagues & yourself. As Alder puts it, “courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life.” How do you courageously face the difficult questions and reclaim your strength?

I also use EMDR to address trauma, anxiety, and depression .
When past events are keeping you from living your life fully, it's time to take steps toward healing. If you're feeling tired of just surviving I can help you build skills to effectively move forward in your life. Often times my clients will come in not knowing where to start but acknowledging that they feel "stuck". Coming in for your first session is a big step forward and a great start to healing.

I have worked with people suffering depression , suicidal ideation, anxiety, pain from a past or recent trauma, loss and grief, those who are divorced or divorcing and single parents.
You may be feeling sad, anxious, overwhelmed, or confused. You may be experiencing a difficult life transition or feel that something is missing in your life. It is important to find a therapist with whom you have a good fit, a feeling that your therapist "gets" you in order to develop the trust necessary in a therapeutic relationship. I have over 35 years of experience helping people in a safe, non-judgmental environment. It is through feeling understood that we come to understand ourselves better.

Things are crazy right now, huh? Our world is in an extreme state of uncertainty which can tax our existing coping strategies, shed light on unhelpful habits, and challenge us with fundamental questions about ourselves and our place in the world. I work with clients wanting to lean into these issues and offer a warm presence as they explore what’s happening underneath. Typically, I work with those struggling with trauma, depression , and/or anxiety, wanting to untangle the influences of their past. I also offer support to those that are dabbling with psychedelics by providing risk reduction and integration.

Scanning through this website trying to discern which therapist will be a good fit from a photograph and a blurb is tricky and also a sign of the times. Ideally less time is spent searching the web for answers and more can be spent with a person whose sole intention is to understand the complexities of your point of view, your experiences and facilitate you getting to where you want to go, while walking right along side you. Depression , anxiety, trauma, distorted relationship with food, difficulty being productive; these are all areas I feel confident I can help you with.

I work with a variety of issues including depression , addictions, grief, mid-life crisis, relationships, parenting, spirituality.
I provide a safe environment in which to explore and develop insight into patterns in your life. I am a Certified Jungian Analyst, working from a Jungian-oriented perspective, helping to develop a relationship between the conscious and unconscious. People often seek a therapist due to a crisis, or possibly because they've developed an awareness that something is not working in their lives anymore. We will work together to develop a deeper understanding of yourself, so that you can change old patterns and live your life with integrity, authenticity and meaning. Thus, our work becomes a practice that tends to soul.

People thrive when they feel a sense of purpose and connection to themselves and others. Most people come to see me when something is missing from their lives, be it purpose, connection, or both. Depression and/or anxiety may be at work. Anger or grief could consume more of their time and focus. Others feel stagnant, confused, expressing a lack of motivation and self-worth. What's common among those I see is that their relationships are impacted. Finding a safe place to explore your current struggles is possible in therapy. To achieve the meaningful changes you desire, seeking professional help is an effective option.

I use a tailored approach to help individuals struggling with eating disorders/disordered eating, depression , anxiety, trauma, self-esteem, life transitions, relationship/dating issues, and grief.
I believe what leads people to seek therapy is falling into the same, unhelpful patterns over and over again. These patterns can show up in our relationship to ourselves, to food, to substances, and to people. I approach therapy with the genuine belief that all people are worthy and capable of breaking these patterns and creating healthy relationships with themselves, with food and with others. My clients report the ability to identify and to challenge negative self-beliefs that get in their way and to create a new set of skills that enable them to build resiliency and an empowered send of self.

I am an interactive therapist. I help clients attain their therapy goals more quickly by taking an active role, rather than simply mirroring their feelings, which I also do. I focus primarily on mind/body connections, however, my overall approach is creative and eclectic. In therapy we explore the past, finding connections to current patterns that cause pain and dysfunction; then work on bringing the client's life into balance. I have many years working in business, schools and private practice, working with depression , anxiety, panic, PTSD, addictions, bereavement, relationship problems, occupational stresses, at-risk adolescents and marital problems.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Mar Vista, Los Angeles. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
