My area of expertise is individual therapy with children and adolescents who exhibit severe behaviors such as verbal and physical aggression, property destruction, resistance to authority ( oppositional /defiant behaviors), self-injurious behaviors, and AWOL.
Family in crisis? Everyone in the family is impacted by the stressful environment when children refuse to follow directions and develop behaviors such as verbal aggression (disrespectful communication, degrading comments, verbally threaten others), emotional outbursts (yelling, temper tantrums), physical aggression toward self (i.e., cutting and/or burning self) or others (pushing and/or hitting others, destroying property), suicidal ideation (threat to self) and/or homicidal ideation (threat to others), and/or running away (AWOL). As a result of feelings of sadness and anger, children and parents often engage in power struggles.

You love your child, but raising them is a different story. They are falling behind in school, they are sneaking out, and they refuse to listen. There is chaos in the house and the arguments seem never ending. Respect is gone and the power struggle continues. Judgement and shame comes from friends and family members and you are at a loss of what to do because no matter what you've done, nothing seems to work. You must be overwhelmed and exhausted. Don't blame yourself for your child's out of control behavior!

If you are a teen or young adult who is struggling to find meaning and joy in your life, then I can help. Most clients I work with have been through some difficult experiences, and know in their heart that they can feel better than they do right now. Some experiment with alcohol and drugs to fix the problem, but it doesn't work. Whether you're feeling anxious, depressed, or stressed, I can help you sort through what the issues are, and how you can manage them in a way that lets you enjoy your life. I also have extensive experience helping adolescents work through traumatic experiences, so please reach out if that's you.

I believe that life ebbs and flows with the changes of life's demands. Many of these changes are positive ones, but at times hardships can follow, needing assistance and guidance in finding solutions. This is where the therapeutic process can help in alleviating your symptoms, bringing about new energy and happiness in enjoying life's many adventures. My enjoyment in the therapeutic process is one of discovery and collaboration in identifying difficulties and solutions to the patient's problems. Above all, I believe the relationship between the patient and therapist is the cornerstone to achieving the patient's goals.

Do you end up going from one doctor to another searching for an answer to your physical complaints? Has your doctor told you that there is no explanation for your symptoms? Has your doctor told you that there is “nothing wrong with you” or “it’s all in your head”? Life is filled with challenges. Stress can be inevitable as we encounter these challenges. Mental, emotional, and physical stress can lead to muscle tension and aliments.

The ideal client is someone who comes to therapy with a willingness to work on his/her issues. I am experienced in child, adolescent, family and individual. It is possible that you've been to therapists and counselors in the past, and you've been disappointed by the lack of concern and care. It is my firm belief that no one deserves to endure the pain of psychological affliction, especially when real help is available. I do everything within my means to ensure my clients' success, and if you happen to be struggling, I want to extend the same help to you.

Oppositional Defiance (ODD) Therapists
All children are oppositional from time to time. But their behavior can become incessantly and openly uncooperative such that it stands out relative to other children. Oppositional Defiant Disorder (or sometimes referred to as "ODD") tends to be evidenced by frequent temper tantrums, excessive arguing with adults, the questioning of rules, active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests. You may also see deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people, blaming of others, being touchy or easily annoyed by others, frequent anger and resentment, mean and hateful talking when upset, a spiteful attitude and revenge seeking.

These therapists can help with oppositional defiance in Newport Beach or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in Newport Beach, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in Newport Beach.
