I work with adolescents and adults addressing concerns such as depression /mood disorders, life adjustment issues, anxiety, self-esteem concerns, and stress.
I believe that all people deserve nothing but the best quality of life that is possible. They should be allowed to complete their tasks every day with full ease and satisfaction. It is quite easy to take all of these tasks for granted, not taking into consideration existential problems that present themselves regardless of the age. There is not always a clear answer to life’s complex issues, but together we can prioritize and sort them out in order to achieve our goal. To recognize and address these challenges allow us to heal and to reach our potential in life.

I work with clients to find a new perspective on life. Growing up, we are told/hear things about what we “should” do or how we “should” feel. Should statements can cause clients to struggle with anxiety, depression , issues with connections with themselves or others, and much more. I view clients as the expert in their life and work with them to find their authentic selves by working on compassion, acceptance, and empowerment. Our world has changed, and societal expectations are changing, this gives us all the opportunity to discover our true priorities. How we show up for ourselves, friends, family, relationships, and our careers.

We are living in a time of uncertainty and added stress. Many of us feel unmotivated, anxious, depressed and overwhelmed. While we may crave more connection we may find ourselves self-sabotaging and later feeling critical of ourselves. Your suffering is a symptom of your stress, and it presents an opportunity for change. My goal is to help clients discover, trust their instincts and reach their potential to live a life full of meaning and connection. My goal is to help you get unstuck, shift habits of negative thinking, and bring unconscious thoughts and feelings to awareness.

I offer individual counseling to assist in working through issues of anxiety, depression , grief & loss counseling and navigating life's transitions.
I believe the therapy process involves forming a relationship with someone who you can share with and trust. A third party who wont judge you, or share/gossip your most intimate secrets or life struggles with others. It's nice having friends and or family to share with, but that isn't always an option, nor is it always safe. I provide my clients with an environment free from judgement where you can let your guard down, vent, share and just be you. Therapy doesn't mean there's something wrong with you, it means you're ready to grow and better understand yourself, others and hopefully life. Isn't that what we're all striving for?

I also treat binge eating disorder, depression , anxiety, OCD, ASD, mood disorders, and many others.
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.

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 Mission Viejo. 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.
