With over four years of experience working in a rape crisis center, I've served alongside law enforcement and forensic medical teams as a crisis advocate. I’m very familiar with sexual assault, domestic violence and LGBTQ + issues. I’ve facilitated Ventura County’s longest-running Trans /Non-binary support groups for adults and teenagers. With couples and other non-traditional relationships, I collaborate to create a safe environment to discuss ruptures in trust and attachment wounds.

My approach to therapy is helping people explore thoughts, feelings and behavioral patterns between themselves, & our surroundings. Counseling will often be a guided process of how I can help clients utilize their coping skills & strength based tools that people may learn to employ immediately. Sessions are structured around evidence based techniques. I have extensive experience working with lgbtq + issues surrounding gender identity & sexual orientation. I also have a background working with individuals, couples & families of loved ones dealing with various life changes, including depression, grief, addiction, & mental illnesses.

I work with survivors of sexual assault, queer people of color, nonbinary, and transgender folx.
I am a licensed psychologist specializing in working with ethnic minorities, survivors of trauma (specifically survivors of interpersonal trauma), and LGBTQIA + individuals. I approach therapy from a multicultural, feminist, strength-based, and relational perspective. I will see you as a whole person with multiple (sometimes incompatible) identities. I aim to empower you to use your voice. Just like being in any other relationship, the therapist-client match is very important. Together, we will work together to address the issues you are coming in with by learning more about yourself and how you interact with others.

I vividly remember the first time I used this website to seek out a therapist. I was filled with despair, intense fear, shame and insecurity but had no consciousness into these emotions. I was so disconnected from my body and my spirit. My thoughts were racing and I was stuck in patterns of self-sabotage and harmful coping mechanisms. It took everything out of me to make eye contact with another person as I began to speak about this. I will never forget the compassion I experienced from my first therapist as she held sacred space for me to begin this process. I strive to embody the same deep compassion for each therapy client I see.

I also provide LGBTQ + affirmative therapy.
We all feel lost from time to time, but there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve been through my own therapy as a young adult when I was stuck in a bout of anxiety and panic attacks due to childhood trauma. Throughout my years of working with traumatized individuals, I learned first-hand about how childhood trauma can have a strong impact on adulthood. I can help you address unresolved trauma, in order for you to find passion, connection, and purpose in your life.

Hi there, I'm Richard! I have been an LCSW since 1985 and have extensive clinical experience treating adults and the elderly. I enjoy helping others with depression, anxiety, adjustment difficulties, anger, PTSD, stress, relationship conflicts, and aging issues. For me, cognitive-behavioral therapy is the gold standard, but I use other modalities depending on the client's needs.

When looking for a therapist, it's important that we find someone who we believe can help us. We need someone we feel comfortable with, and someone we can trust. When I work with my clients within this framework and with these foundations, they are able to set and reach goals to fulfill dreams and find their meaning and purpose in life. In my practice, I work with clients struggling with mood disorders, substance abuse, personality disorders, and relationship problems. I believe in aligning our thoughts, emotions, words, behavior, and spirit in order to see our path laid out before us with clarity.

When working with a client, I find it most important to create an "emotional safe space" where one feels comfortable to openly express and is able to feel truly heard and understood. My overall approach focuses on helping one strengthen one's own relationship with them self via self compassion and self kindness. It is my experience that this is the most effective way to find clarity and balance in one's relationships, work and overall ability to feel unconditionally comfortable with oneself. It means nourishing your mind, body and soul by having the kindest thoughts about yourself, caring for your body and finding your own unique spiritual connection between you and life. When we focus on our own "wholeness" we are able to find peace and able to give more to our relationships and to our dreams.

What type of Oxnard 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Oxnard?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
