I practice each intervention through distinctive situations my clients may experience when living with trauma and mental health which can develop symptoms of depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, and co-occurring addictive disorders.
Childhood trauma can cripple us, it creates overpowering ‘intense’ emotions such as anxiety, depression, and anger when left unattended which begins to create physical symptoms to defend our bodies from the internal wounds. Has there ever been a time in your life where you have experienced this reaction? Are you experiencing these feelings based on current or past trauma from childhood, early teens, adolescence, adulthood, or as a senior? I aim to utilize a variety of actionable techniques to help reduce trauma-related symptoms and make lasting changes in life.

Welcome to my practice. I have about 15 years of clinical experience and have been featured on NBC/KCAL/HLN as an expert psychologist. I work primarily with men who have hit “rock bottom” and would like help getting up. These men are often in crisis when we first meet. The issues I address are typically related to unhealthy sexual behaviors, infidelity, financial recklessness, gambling, drugs/alcohol, dishonesty/lying, and relational conflicts. My therapy approach is a combination of psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, and the 12-Step recovery model. I also share insight from my own painful but redemptive recovery journey.

Do you feel anxious, sad, worried, overwhelmed, or stressed? Do you have difficulty coping with life challenges? Do you find getting through the day to day activities of life more strenuous lately? It can be isolating to not only feel painful emotions, but difficult to relate to those in our lives when we’re not feeling like ourselves, leaving us feeling more alone. That’s where therapy can help. I’m a therapist who listens, seeks to understand your experience, and supports you with tools to help you feel better. I’m a CBT Certified Beck Clinician and EMDR trained; two well-researched modalities with proven results.

It can be heartbreaking to be the parent of a child who is struggling. It feels like other parents don’t have to work as hard as you do. There are tears, tantrums, and challenges at school. They seem to worry about things that other children don’t even notice. You’re feeling exhausted and like no one has the answers. Finding the right person to support you means trusting someone with your child’s wellbeing. It can be scary to reach out to a therapist. You want to make sure that you find someone who can connect to your child and work with you to help you understand what’s going on with them.

When I begin a session with a new client, I want to present myself as a real person. I want to create a situation where the client feels comfortable being him/herself and communicating whatever is going on. I will observe closely, being as present as possible. I will listen carefully and respond when appropriate. I may ask questions or make interpretations about what we talk about, but most importantly I want the client to feel free to say whatever is on his/her mind. I want to establish a trusting relationship so we can begin to work on this person’s issues.

Intervention Therapists
An intervention can motivate someone to seek help for alcoholism, drug abuse, eating disorders or other addictive behaviors.

An addiction intervention therapist in Santa Monica or a drug intervention Santa Monica typically offers a comprehensive course of treatment that is designed to provide individuals who are involved with drugs with the education and life skills they need to overcome their addiction.

Alcohol intervention therapists in Santa Monica focus primarily on how alcohol addiction affects the entire family. Interventionist counselors in Santa Monica provide tools for the family to adequately deal with the situation, and work to establish healthy boundaries that restore order during this chaotic time. Most importantly, highly trained and educated interventionists work diligently to urge the alcoholic to accept treatment or face the consequences of his or her continued use.

The earlier an Eating disorder intervention in Santa Monica takes place, the better the chance for recovery. The cooperation of a professional is an important part of this often complex assessment.

Everything that takes place within an intervention is facilitated and supervised by a professional interventionist. One of the ways the interventionist can assist is by preventing a breakdown of communication. The interventionist will often meet with family members and friends of the affected individual prior to the intervention. During this preliminary meeting, the entire group will work together to design an approach. This may include preparing individual letters that detail personal experiences or describe pain that has been caused by the addiction.
