“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them” - Albert Einstein; For several years a major focus in my practice has been working with high functioning individuals affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families. But, this hasn’t limited the breadth of my professional activities. People come to me with the “common cold” conditions of anxiety and depression as well, and for help with OCD. I provide psychological/ neuropsychological assessments for diagnostic clarity or to support applications for accommodations at work or school, public benefits, and for treatment planning.

We treat a variety of conditions including ADHD/ADD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, anxiety, stress, insomnia, and depression.
Neurofeedback is a drug-free treatment that allows us to train an individual’s brain to achieve a healthier pattern of functioning. Neurofeedback guides brain functions by measuring brain waves and providing a feedback signal. Electroencephalography (EEG) is recorded during the neurofeedback treatment. Then, its various components are extracted and presented to the patient using a feedback loop in the form of either audio or video feedback. By utilizing the brain’s natural neuroplasticity, we can achieve long-lasting symptom improvement.

Welcome neurodivergent (ND) folks! I don't see your differences as symptoms, I just see YOU. If you are struggling to keep up with friends, work, your life, you've come to the right place. You've always felt different, you're not like most other kids. Maybe you had trouble making friends. Life has never been easy. Your parents try to understand but maybe they never struggled the way you do so it's harder for them to get it. Time and again you find yourself wishing you could be more "normal". The thing is, I won't help you be more "normal", I'll help you be more YOU. Unmask and get ready to accept yourself in a whole new way.

Establishing a therapeutic relationship is one of the most important treatment goals for me for client progress. I'm here to help clients who are searching for change with an authentic experience. Therapy shouldn't always be about "fixing" a person, it should be about helping you achieve the quality of life you really desire. No matter if you are a homeschooler, "crunchy-parent", vegan or vegetarian, spiritual or not, LGBTQ, my therapeutic approach will be open-minded and open-hearted.

I strive to provide an inclusive feeling in my practice where everyone’s uniqueness is embraced, explored, and celebrated. I utilize a variety of modalities including Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, DBT, and Mindfulness. After practicing for more than 20 years what I have learned is that therapy is not one size fits all, success and progress look different for each person, everybody is doing their best always no matter what, and in the end the best predictor of treatment success is the relationship we create in our work together. If we can build a trusting relationship then the journey will be successful.

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.

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.
