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.

My specialty areas have varied over the years including codependency, sexual abuse, depression , anxiety, post-traumatic stress, grief, play therapy and sandtray.
"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.

In my work with individuals and couples, depression and anxiety are frequently cited; but so too are medical problems, chronic pain, addiction issues, and effects on the family.
If you are dealing with hidden difficulties or tremendous physical and emotional pain, confidential help is available. Whether pain is thrust upon us or chosen, I understand the complexities of this predicament. Being "stuck," relational and sexual frustrations, medical issues, anxiety about how to get through the day, are all are situations that can change with assistance. You start to change your predicament the moment that you are able to reach out and work with a trusted individual. These problems do not need to become worse and your path is not decided. The path ahead is unknown.

I offer therapy for teens and adults for depression , anxiety, grief, loss, parenting issues, and life transitions.
Do you feel life is restricting you from who you really want to be for yourself, your partner and/or your family? My primary goal in therapy is to help enhance your ability to make choices. I use personalized approaches to help empower your bravery to look inside yourself. The authenticity of these choices will lead to serving you and your relationships in the best ways possible. Assessing our sometimes, self-imposed, "roadblocks" in life can help us build accountability for our choices. This, in turn, allows these choices to become "building blocks" toward lasting joy for each relationship creation of your choice.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Santa Maria. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
