On the outside, you make success look easy, though it comes at a cost. You hide parts of yourself leaving you wrestling with shame, guilt, self-esteem, or loneliness. In turn, relationships may feel constantly unsatisfactory. Through my supportive and calm nature, I work to offer a safe space that recognizes the tension within yourself and others, so you can move closer to your authentic self. I can help you improve communication, manage emotions, and create a healthy relationship with yourself and others. I am passionate about empowering you to live the life you love by deepening your insight and finding practical solutions.

Through my effective use of psychodynamic psychotherapy I can help my clients; gain self awareness, make well informed decisons, use effective communication and in crease their self esteem .
There are expereinces in our lives that leave us feeling disconnected and ill at ease. Feeling misunderstood in our realtionships can be painful and confusing. Psychotherapy provides the oppertunity for self discovery and understanding. A safe environment to explore our thougths and feelings and make sense of our emotions. Resulting in increased self understanding and compassion. This experience is the basis for developing positive relationships in other areas of your life. Each of us wants to connect with family members, friends and co-workers in a meaningful way, leaving us feeling understood and accepted.

I have worked with adult individuals and couples since 2005 both in short-term and long-term psychotherapy. My main orientation is psychodynamic and looking at personality development, but I also use cognitive-behavioral and neuroscience research. I am a preferred provider for many years with UCSB and sixty percent of my practice has been working with graduate students. We worked on anxiety, depression, self-esteem, sense of self, individuation, trauma, PTSD, OCD, personality disorders and phobias. While individuals makes up the main part of my practice working with couples is also a passion of mine.

I help people come home to themselves. Life's challenges can leave us questioning our intuition and values and impact our self-worth, relationships, and well-being. Perhaps this is due to a difficult upbringing, perhaps due to trauma and loss, or it may be due to external stressors such as marginalization and oppression. I help clients to find their voice, re-discover self-trust, uncover inner wisdom, and cultivate strength and balance. Together we will explore your experiences, nurture inner resources, and identify and resolve destructive patterns that impact your relationships.

I believe effective psychotherapy fosters one part of the path towards wholeness. Past hurts, the voice of the inner critic, emotional dysregulation, and traumatic experiences can fragment the self, and break away our inner strengths and resources. I aim to help relocate those strengths and inner resiliencies by facilitating exploration and implementing appropriate best-practice tools. Together, we can navigate the psychological barriers and free up the inner entanglement. "Wholeness is not so much perfection as completeness." -C.G. Jung.

I see you over there, checking me out. Hi! My name is Lisa. My passion for helping people kicked into high gear after experiencing Alzheimer’s of a grandparent and meeting families with ill children when volunteering at Children’s Hospital of L.A. We all need a little help now and then and nobody should feel ashamed to ask for it. I love meeting clients’ “furry children” since pets are a wonderful emotional support – I have two. I enjoy sweets (guilty pleasure – we all have one), I believe in self-care (yoga, meditation, walks outside and playing music) and love comedy since laughter helps!

My approach to psychotherapy/psychoanalysis is to provide a safe, non-judge mental and trusting environment where you can freely express your feelings. I believe each of us is striving to develop our own unique sense of self. We can do this together by identifying beliefs and behaviors that do not serve you and cultivating ones that do. This becomes a partnership. I am committed to helping you out of the darkness and into the light again. My training offers a wide variety of ways to achieve this task. Together we will follow closely your needs, desires and emotions.

Maybe you're not feeling like yourself or the person you want to be, you're confused, frustrated, and unsure what to do. Maybe you're struggling with understanding yourself, your relationships, or your path forward in life. You could be experiencing difficult emotions, overpowering thoughts, or you're doing things that don't align with what's important to you. I wonder if your past and your early experiences are beginning or continue to feel like a significant weight that you now need to lighten in order to live the life you want. We can work together to help you with these or other difficulties you're experiencing.

Do you find yourself completely exhausted at the end of each day from the effort it takes to go through the motions? Maybe you spend so much time focused on internal worries or past experiences that you feel disconnected from those around you or like life is passing you by. The clients I work with share these struggles. Despite being hard-working, successful, and invested in their relationships, they often feel as though their efforts are never enough. They just don't feel like themselves. Whether you've been feeling this way for a while or noticed a recent shift, you deserve to feel like yourself again.

-- I Provide Telephone Therapy & Videoconference Sessions -- I work best with motivated adults who are committed to working on clearly identified psychological and relationship problems. My clients have tried to solve issues on their own but eventually recognize a need for professional assistance. They realize that therapists have no magical quick cures and that treatment takes courage, persistence and risk-taking. My clients learn that seeking help is a strength, not a weakness. They develop trust in the therapeutic relationship and make lasting gains. I honor each one.

Hello and welcome! I'm glad you are here. Juggling the multiple roles and relationships that society calls us into can be quite the challenge, and part of my reason for being a therapist is the desire to walk alongside individuals as they navigate life’s trials. I feel that our greatest challenges have the potential to lead us to the most free expression of self and guide us toward our most authentic path. I aim to provide a safe and openhearted experience for my clients where all aspects of the self are welcomed with warmth and curiosity.

My goal as a therapist is to provide a comfortable setting that allows you to get the greatest benefit from our work together. In addition to traditional office sessions, I offer flexible solutions including phone, teletherapy, or home visits. Emotional issues can trigger or make a significant contribution to anxiety, skin conditions, skin picking issues and hair pulling (trichotillomania) issues. Relaxation, visualizations, and a mixture of cognitive behavioral therapy and body-focused psychotherapy can make the difference. You can take more control by discovering how to manage your emotional triggers and by developing strategies to alleviate anxiety, skin issues, skin picking, and hair pulling.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
