Personally, I am also an adult adoptee and a single Mother of a child with autism and another with ADHD .
"I believe that each person has unlimited potential within themself! It is my role to assist a person in finding the answers to the dilemnas' they may be facing. Often someone is experiencing a high level of stress through a current life circumstance that brings up feelings or grief from the past. When this happens, part of the therapy process is to deal with the "unfinished business" to access more energy to bring to the present. As a Marriage and Family therapist, I focus on relationship issues including patterns of communication that can improve to develop more satisfying relationships too.

I have experience with adolescent, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, autism, ADHD , drug and alcohol, relationship difficulties, learning disabilities, bipolar, schizophrenia, and body dysmorphia.
I believe in working together to build supports and a positive experience for the clients I work with. I believe in working on changing thoughts that then can hopefully change behaviors and eventually create a more positive experience/life for the client that I work with. Therapy is a team effort and not just one person is responsible for the outcome. If you have anxiety, depression or have overall negative thoughts that seem to impact you more and more, we can work together to over come that.

Deciding to pursue therapy for your child, teen, yourself, or your family is a difficult yet rewarding decision. It is not often that we give ourselves the time and attention to focus on our feelings, frustrations and desires, but doing so can change our perceptions of ourselves and the world around us. My theoretical orientation integrates Mindfulness and solution-focused therapy with cognitive behavioral interventions that will reduce stress immediately.

I enjoy helping people navigate life's trials. Everyone is unique and I respect their personal struggles. I have discovered in my 24 years of experience, that fine tuning healthy communication can be a reliable way to begin helping the healing process. Communication skills may seem simple, and they can be, but the adverse affect of miscommunication is profound. My skills can provide you the techniques for problem solving difficult or emotional situations.

Whether you've clicked on my profile because of a recent traumatic experience or because your life continues to seem stuck, it's possible for you to move through the situations inhibiting a felt sense of meaning for your life. Doing so requires vulnerability, curiosity, and self-trust—qualities you're demonstrating right now in your search for support. By showing up to yourself and the relationships in which you take part, the world may open to you a life deepened in its profundity and resolve. Our afflictions don't need to isolate us from understanding and joy as my work with adults, children, couples, and families has shown me.

Failing to get help, many divorced people regret that they gave up too soon. As a marriage specialist for over two decades, you can trust that you are in the care of a competent advocate for your marriage. Every marriage faces the power struggle -it's supposed to happen. Too many quit their marriage at this crucial time. Not giving yourselves the opportunity to work through this painful stage could be a tragedy because this very stage carries the seeds of true character growth and healing. An affair, dishonesty, conflict, or stress can rob you of the feelings of attunement.

ADHD Therapists
Some children and adults with ADHD find it difficult to concentrate on tasks at school or work and may daydream frequently. Children with ADHD may become disruptive, defiant, or have trouble getting along with parents, peers, or teachers. Children who struggle with hyperactivity and impulsivity, in particular, often have behavioral challenges that can be difficult for adults to manage. Adults, on the other hand, may be more likely to report feeling restless or fidgety; if they struggle with impulsivity, they may make rash decisions that adversely affect their life. For both children and adults, executive functioning (planning, emotional regulation, and decision-making) is often affected as well. Many children and adults display either hyperactive or inattentive symptoms of ADHD, but it’s also possible for both sets of symptoms to exist together, in what is typically called combined type ADHD.

If you're looking for a Santa Maria ADHD therapist, these professionals provide ADHD therapy and counseling in Santa Maria.
