Relationships are complex and thankfully, a source of so much information. They can promote a sense of safety and joy but can also devolve into toxicity and self-abandonment; the way we perceive others and navigate the world today has its roots in our early relationships (or attachments) and experiences. There is value in exploring our family of origin as a vehicle for understanding ourselves and the obstacles we face while in relationship. A universal goal for my clients is increased insight into themselves that fosters healing, personal growth and intentional living.

In this day and age it can be very difficult to just exist. The world appears to be evolving faster each day which can make it extremely difficult to be grounded with oneself. At times, one could feel anxious, depressed, or overwhelmed because the amount one has to manage on their own. Finding peace in a world that is unpredictable and scary can appear unattainable. I write this because I live in this world as well. I view therapy as a a means to finding the tools and skills to cope with trauma, addiction, work, relationship distress, and/or family dynamics to ultimately find empowerment in oneself.

I treat adults, couples, families, and children. I view treatment from a developmental perspective and will meet the client wherever they exist on the life span continuum, and whenever they have difficulty negotiating the next step. I have an expertise in disorders of attachment, as well as exposure therapy for trauma, and I've trained many classes of interns and psychologists, in the treatment of these disorders utilizing neurological correlates to psychological mechanisms. My focus is on training the individual to understand his/her own process, so that dissociated material can be integrated, bringing the individual into the present moment.

Perhaps you want to explore your relationships, or work life. Whatever the challenge, psychotherapy can serve as powerful means to get curious and institute the growth and change you are seeking.

My practice focuses on helping individuals, couples, and families who are suffering from emotional or physical pain or the aftereffects of trauma. We help them resolve the traumatic experience, as well as its consequences (e.g. physical pain, stress, disability, depression, anxiety, insomnia, medication dependence, isolation, etc.) Although many of our patients have not responded well to prior therapies, we've had outstanding success in helping them move from feeling a severe loss to finding a new and positive beginning. We love to work with people who are ready to change and eager to learn how to do it.

What type of Malibu 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 Malibu?
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.

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.
