I engage multiple science-based models including EMDR, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), CBT , Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and tailor according to each client's individual needs.
*CASELOAD FULL* Many survivors of trauma feel isolated from their supportive relationships and community, feeling intense and persistent fear, anxiety, agitation, and at times disconnection. Trauma dramatically shifts our experiences of the world and how we relate to others, leaving many feeling alone and stuck simply surviving. Trauma is a psychological injury, and is reparable and treatable. With a multimodal approach, I help clients restore a sense of safety in their environment and within themselves, deeply heal traumatic injuries, and reconnect within relationships and engage in meaningful lives.

I believe that cognitive behavioral therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy implemented with a good dash of common sense can go a long way in effecting a sound treatment.
I believe anxiety and stress to be the foundation of many issues we all face. My first goal is to help my patients reduce stress thereby decreasing chronic pain, depression and even the ravages of disease and illness. By developing rapport and trust and then utilizing healthy coping skills, the goal of anxiety reduction can be achieved. Its important to remember that we are engaged in a collaborative process where we learn to accept, resolve, move on and let go. I find that mindfulness, meditation and breathing is highly effective in decreasing anxiety and depression.

Through use of a Cognitive -Behavioral framework, I guide clients through the process of building new skills to achieve their desired goals and make choices that are more in line with their personal values.
Successfully managing through college and early adulthood can be challenging. Many of my clients find themselves sacrificing mental health for academic and career success or have difficulties with motivation, confidence, and relationships. While stress is a normal and expected part of life, I help my clients manage anxiety without feeling hopeless, overwhelmed, or alone. I also support the building of communication skills and boundary-setting to better navigate and nurture important relationships with family, friends, and romantic partners.

Prolonged Exposure and Cognitive Processing Therapy can break the cycle of PTSD or C-PTSD by helping you develop a new way of thinking about and remembering what happened.
Are you hoping to make your relationship deeper and more satisfying? I practice Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy: helping couples understand their differences and build genuine empathy for each other. We would work together to move from "my side of the story" and "your side of the story" to "our story." Once you each are able to express compassion for your partner's experience and feel greater acceptance of one another, you both are likely to find you actually want to make additional changes. I believe that after going through couple therapy, your relationship can be even more wonderful than when you first met.

I also incorporate Cognitive Behavioral methods as needed and am quite interactive in session.
At various times in their lives people need help in recognizing what they want and are not getting. In an atmosphere of safety and support, we will look at patterns and beliefs that prevent each person from feeling cohesive and understood. We will also look at patterns that trigger feelings of depression, anger and anxiety, as well as longings that may be shameful and out of awareness. With support and understanding shame can be dealt with and reduced leading to a life that is less isolated and anxiety ridden.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in Santa Monica or for a Santa Monica CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy. They include CBT therapists, CBT psychologists, CBT psychotherapists and CBT counselors.
