Have you ever wondered if you have ADHD? Have you felt frustrated with therapy and wanted clarification on your diagnosis? Sometimes psychological/neuropsychological evaluation can help to elucidate the problem and provide illuminating recommendations toward recovery. An objective assessment looking at your whole being and context can be your next step. I do NOT provide therapy services, but only perform neuropsychological/psychological evaluations.

I specialize in providing psychological services to children and adolescents. These include neuropsychological assessment and psychotherapy. Assessments can be invaluable tools that provide diagnostic clarification, treatment recommendations, and the basis for academic accommodations. The therapeutic interventions I provide to young clients can be used to address a range of common challenges including, but not limited to emotional dysregulation and behavior problems. Based on the client, therapy may take various forms and could entail a talk or play-based approach. I regularly integrate parent or family sessions when appropriate.

Your friends and family see you as having it all together but on the inside you are feeling unsure/anxious about yourself, your relationships and your career. This self doubt and unhappiness are taking up a lot of space in your daily life and interfering with you being the best version of yourself. It's normal to feel this way sometimes but you don't have to navigate through this alone! Starting therapy is making a positive commitment to yourself.

I've been in practice over thirty years, dividing my time between my private office ( where i've mostly seen adults) and CHLA Mental Health Clinic where I specialized in adolescents and where I served as one of the training directors for many years. For the last five years, I've devoted my time exclusively to my private practice where I use a range of treatment models ( individual/conjoint/family) and enjoy working with a diverse clientele in terms of presenting problems, age, gender and sexual orientation.

My ideal client is motivated to work on their stuff, whatever that may be, and wants a therapist who is collaborative, supportive, and direct. They are open to facing the challenges of engaging fully in life, owning their choices, connecting with other people, and making their life meaningful. They are ready to learn about how their thoughts about themselves, others, and the future impact how they feel and what they do. They want help understanding the factors that influence their thinking, feelings, and choices, and guidance and encouragement to identify and implement changes that will improve their life.

Do past traumas trigger you? Are you suffering with a chronic disease (e.g., pain, fibromyalgia, diabetes, obesity)? And are any of these health issues making you feel chronically stressed and/or depressed? Do you think you have ADHD because you can’t focus and feel so overwhelmed? If so, therapy can help. When trauma occurs, our minds often create a defense like avoidance to protect us from danger. While avoiding trauma is adaptive at first, over time, suppressing our emotions leads to our bodies rebelling which manifests as physical illnesses such as migraines, panic attacks, obesity, diabetes, etc.

Feeling stuck in a job? A relationship? In your own life? Is something bothering you, but you have found that it is hard to put your thoughts into words or find someone to talk to? I help clients address issues related to relationships, depression, anxiety, anger, addiction, stressful or traumatic events and work toward their goals of becoming healthier, happier, and enjoying a more fulfilling life. My goal in therapy is to foster a collaborative and non-judgmental relationship that allows you to safely explore whatever is troubling you, and to build on the strengths and resources you already possess.

Are you feeling stuck? Maybe you feel stuck in the past or present. Maybe it's hard to feel hopeful about the future. It's easy to become trapped in painful memories and negative experiences. A negative experience could be one life changing event or many smaller events that accumulate over time. I specialize in treating people who have experienced trauma. Trauma takes many forms but always takes a toll. Trauma can make you feel overwhelmed, insecure, and hopeless. Trauma can make you forget who you used to be.

You are exhausted. You have tried medication, self-care, and socializing and you still don't feel right. No matter what you do you feel that you cannot reach a state of contentment. You soldier on day by day but feel like things are just get worse and worse. All you want to do is hide under the covers. Maybe you feel that society is collapsing around you and there is nothing you can do about it? Where can a person turn for help? You often wonder, is there a solution out there or will I have to try yet another medication that doesn't work? Stop blaming yourself, much of this is a normal reaction to abnormal circumstances.

(Note: I am NOT the therapist known as "the Angry therapist." We share the same name =) ). I understand how hard it can be to find a quality therapist, counselor, or life coach. It is no easy task to find someone who not only understands the issues you are working on, but who also "gets you" as a person. It is my hope to make this search easier. Whether you decide to call me for a free consultation, set up an appointment with me, or let me provide you referral, I hope that after talking with me, you are one step closer to finding the help you seek.

What type of Pasadena 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 Pasadena?
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.

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.
