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.

My approach is attachment based, client centered & psychodynamic .
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 work with individuals, couples, and families who want to address long-term problems and patterns. It is through this kind of personal exploration that a deeper understanding can be attained and the sense-of-self can be strengthened. A psychodynamic approach can go below the surface to address problems, improve personal relationships, and stop self-destructive behavior. So often, past experiences can interfere with our present lives and we find ourselves suffering through repeated ongoing pain.

Therapy is an active collaboration and I tailor my approach to each individual using psychodynamic , developmental, systems and cognitive behavioral approaches.
My focus as a psychotherapist is to help each individual achieve their full potential. Whether there is a current challenge or a broader goal to create change, the biggest indicator of success in therapy is the rapport one has with their therapist. I provide a safe environment in my office, one of support, honesty, trust and free of judgment. This is essential to the therapeutic process and in the client's ability to feel safe and understood. I assist and help guide my clients in life transformations, to gain insight and to live a better, more meaningful life.

My focus of therapy is strengths based, problem-solution focused and psychodynamic .
Are you tired of "being sick and tired"? Do you need to break unhealthy habits? It is time to take control. Deal with the issues that cause you to feel depressed, anxious, angry and stuck in unhealthy relationships. Stop blaming others, beating yourself up and sabotaging yourself. Stop feeling guilty and recalling mistakes you have made. Love yourself and be the best person you can be. Improve your self-confidence, your self -esteem and your relationships. It is time for you to decide " What do you want to do with your life"? You can be transformed and re-newed.

Whether it be in your career, your relationship or life in general, you are wondering about what’s to come and where you should be headed. Through the use of narrative, psychodynamic and trauma-based interventions, I am here to help you reprocess, heal and overcome.

I believe that the most effective form of therapy is one where the therapist and the client can have a collaborative and authentic relationship. I strive to create a therapeutic environment that facilitates perceiving, thinking, sensing, feeling, expressing, connecting, and relating. My treatment approach is quite integrative but not without focus. I believe that a unique therapy experience should be created for each person. Are past painful memories holding you back from a happy future? You maybe suffering from trauma. EMDR is an effective research-based therapy that will help accelerate your healing.

"Well, it's always something!" How often have we all heard and said this phrase. Yet it's true. Life is always presenting us with"somethings" - loss, problems, distress, despair - obstacles to our happiness and well-being, and to our relationships. It is a very wise decision to reach out for help. Yet I know it is also stressful to try to decide on a therapist. Let me share with you who I am and my approach as a therapist. I unfailingly believe it is possible for people to make positive changes in their lives and to heal past and present trauma and pain.

By using evidence based practices, significant change can happen rather quickly, in weeks and months. I have advanced degrees and training, and am certified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and TF-CBT (Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy).

Do you feel anxious, alone, stuck, or disconnected in your life? Has something bad happened to you in the past and it seems to be controlling how you feel and interact with others in your life today? Often times when trauma occurs, it gets locked in our body and we learn to live through life functioning from a set of beliefs and behaviors. These beliefs and behaviors may not be serving you well and may actually be causing disruptions towards a happier self.

I am a certified EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapist with a focus on trauma and Post traumatic stress (PTSD) and Performance Enhancement for athletes, performers, and entrepreneurs. Additionally, I treat individuals working to overcome obstacles or are just feeling "stuck." Immediate symptom reduction includes anxiety, depression, repeated patterns of behavior, obsessive & addictive behaviors, lack of focus, insecurities and confidence issues. For some clients conventional talk therapy is extremely effective. For others, a more aggressive approach which is what prompted my EMDR 5 Day Intensive program. This includes 5 consecutive days of on-going EMDR which continues to prove amazing results!

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Mission Viejo, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
