It is often said, "children are the future." Then, let's work together to provide your child/adolescent support and guidance they need. Children/adolescents are going through many changes: physically, emotionally, and cognitively, and sometimes tough times come up. Do you find yourself asking, “Is my child sad?” “Is my child okay?” “I don’t know how to help my child?” or “As a family, we need help” It is okay to ask these questions and I am here to help. I am a passionate clinician that wants to help you, help your child/adolescent be prepared for the future.

My clients are usually hard workers, and are very self critical. They expect so much out of themselves, and don't feel like they are ever enough. People pleasers that are frustrated they can't please everyone, are often tired and frustrated with where life is going compared to where they wish it was. They often have relationships that could be better, whether starting, maintaining, or ending. They are tired of struggling, they are ready to make a change, to be part of the solution. They want to have better control of their anxiety, emotions, anger, and also learn to be in the moment. I can help you get to where you want to be.

I work to help each individual find the beauty and grace in life. My hope is to help you find your true self through a variety of therapeutic techniques. I believe each human is unique and comes to therapy hoping to develop their potential and grow through the process. Through acceptance and mindfulness each individual can then approach life with curiosity and wonder. To heal the wounds of trauma I am trained in Somatic Experiencing and utilize this approach to channel one's innate system for growth and change.

During the process of therapy, working through the struggles of life can bring you to a deeper and more meaningful place, not only finding, but also liking who you are. Therapy will help you learn coping skills, setting boundaries, changing perceptions that keep you stuck, finding the connection you want in relationships, building self-esteem, finding release from loss and grief, openness to change, and a willingness to accept your worth and find your authentic voice.

Alright, I’ll say it. Therapy can seem intimidating. I’m a stranger to you, at first, and we’ll explore topics that aren’t always easy, but it’s our process, meaning we are in it together. I’m the passenger with a map, and you’re the driver behind the wheel. You set the pace. Every process is different, and I individualize each one. I’m a huge advocate of communication, so we remain within the bounds of what fits your needs best. Common feedback I receive is about how “supportive” and “involved” I am throughout the process.

My work is solution focused. I work in a Family Systems Orientation to help bring context to what is happening today and a Cognitive Behavioral Orientation to help clients make adjustments in the present. Our past family experiences are important. What we learned in our family is very much related to how we do life today. But sometimes, I think, people may invest an inordinate amount of their time and resources analyzing the problems of the past. In doing so they may miss the exceptions to those problems that hold the key to change.

What type of Mission Viejo 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 Mission Viejo?
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.
