I believe the main goal of therapy is to remove the obstacles and blockages that preclude us from being genuine. My approach is straightforward yet compassionate. As your therapist, I simply hold the mirror up and allow you to reveal the parts of yourself that have broken off over the years as a result of stress, trauma, depression, anxiety, and other unresolved issues. Together we mitigate the impact of maladaptive behaviors and search for answers that are more closely aligned with your goals. The answers to many of life’s problems are internal, but we have been conditioned otherwise.

People come to therapy because they hurt and they think they've exhausted all other means of feeling better. The decision to get professional help is not an easy one, but as I've learned over nearly 30 years of experience, people have remarkable, untapped abilities to change. I offer a direct, active and effective way of facilitating YOUR own healing. Insight is measured by behavior change! Whether dealing with work stress, marital conflict, depression, anxiety, panic or an addiction, therapy aims at putting an end to old habits and creating new, healthy behaviors and communication.

The great poet and philosopher Kahlil Gibran once wrote “out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.” Some of the scars Kahlil refers to are visible, while still others are under the surface. These scars teach us, build resiliency, and make us more compassionate to the struggles and scars of others. As a human who has suffered and as a therapist who has tirelessly fought to reclaim lives brought asunder by suffering, I want to take a journey with my clients to find what was lost, rebuild what has been ravaged, and find a path of strength and compassion to walk with my client.

Hello, I was raised in NYC where I learned appreciation of diversity. I am currently living in Northern California where I enjoy a sense of community. I originally focused my practice on mental health issues in the health care setting. I have since expanded my focus on the multiple issues related to trauma I.e. drug and alcohol use,depression and anxiety. I have studied brain trauma, motivation interviewing ,and treatment of panic disorder. I believe that therapy is about team work and that you set the agenda and goals. I teach coping skills and empowerment and look forward to meeting you.

Are you concerned about your teenager's excessive stress, argumentative behavior at home, or declining grades? Adolescence is a stressful period as the developmental changes that occur during this time affect almost every area of a teenager's functioning (e.g. relationships with others, risk-taking behavior, sense of identity). However, these changes often lead to great distress on the teenager and their families. Psychotherapy can be a great tool for your child to work through his or her conflicts as they make the difficult transition into adulthood.

I approach this field of psychotherapy as a sacred space. A space of human connectivity. A space safe and free of judgments and biases. I attempt to provide the utmost empathy and a safe space for my clients to be able to address the issues they need help with. I believe in being solution-focused while addressing the underlying causes of repetitive patterns in order to stop the self-destructive cycles that produce unfavorable results. My goal is to help you to change your behavior to promote positive outcomes towards your mental and emotional wellbeing.

Learn to sleep better from the comfort of home anywhere in California! Quality sleep is the bedrock of optimal health. It makes you happier, less depressed & anxious and better equipped to cope with stress. Sleep enhances memory and creativity, makes you look more attractive, keeps you slim and lowers food cravings. It also protects against cancers and dementia, wards off colds & flu and lowers risk of heart attacks, strokes and diabetes. I'm devoted to helping people get back to restorative sleep. I've worked for decades in accredited sleep disorders centers and now offer treatment via a secure tele-video conferencing platform.

I am passionate about helping children and adults who come from hard places to find hope and healing, including those with PTSD, anxiety, and attachment problems. My desire is for my clients to experience a genuine, compassionate, and well-equipped psychologist to guide them toward their goals. I strive to help my clients learn, grow, and heal so they can flourish. I tailor my approach to each individual's and family's strengths and needs, pulling from several evidence-based practices, teaching and coaching concrete skills, and focusing on reflection and relational patterns. I have clinical expertise in the treatment of trauma both in children and adults, including those with histories of abuse, neglect, and other forms of interpersonal trauma. I love working with parents who themselves have come from hard places or with histories of loss who are struggling to find their way in parenting, to move from surviving to thriving. I am passionate about helping family members connect and overcome what has divided them. I have specialized training in helping foster and adoptive families. Additionally, I treat young children who are struggling with behavioral problems at home and school.

What type of Santa Ana 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 Santa Ana?
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.
