EMDR and IFS (Internal Family Systems) offer effective and often rapid relief from depression , anxiety, panic attacks, distressing memories, nightmares, etc.
It is my passion and privilege to assist my clients in feeling alive, connected and at peace in their relationships and within themselves. Every day I hear clients say that our work has truly transformed their lives - that they are no longer triggered by old patterns, that their confidence and happiness is greater than they have ever experienced. Changes such as these are possible through a collaborative exploration of past and present issues in an atmosphere of safety, compassion and respect - respect for the individual and respect for the mind's ability to heal.

I have extensive experience working with people suffering from depression , anxiety, PTSD, and developmental delays.
You are struggling, but no one seems to understands what you're going through. Life threw you a curveball and trying your best just doesn't prove enough. Everyday tasks can feel impossible when you're suffering. Sometimes things are simply too hard because you are hurting or worried. You wonder if you're a good enough parent when your child argues with you. You are so frustrated with your partner not hearing your worries and sorrows. You long for healthy relationships and being understood since you know what you're capable of if only you had sufficient support and love. You are seeking help because you desire real change.

As an experienced anxiety/ depression therapist, I believe that unconditional support and practical strategies to cope w/ life's triggers will guide you to a place of feeling empowered & hopeful.
You want to appear successful and like you have it "all together" but deep down are struggling to feel confident in who you are or effectively cope with daily stressors. You may be fed up with feeling unimportant and overthinking everything. You might not even remember a time things didn't feel this way. One thing you do know is that you're ready for change. You're ready to live your life confidently without questioning every decision you make. You're ready to start putting yourself first without feeling guilty. Most of all, you're ready to love yourself and take control of your life again.

While building empowerment, and hope for increased life satisfaction, purpose and joy.

If you suffer from anxiety, depression , current or past trauma, I am here for you.
You no longer know who you are or what you want in life. You constantly feel as though something is missing, or you’re just going through the motions. You may be in a toxic relationship, romantic or otherwise. You may be stuck at a dead-end job, not know where to go career wise, or maybe you aren’t sure if school is right for you. You constantly are told what to do, who to be, and have difficulty speaking and choosing for yourself. Or perhaps you have to do everything. You have no support and feel as though you are juggling a million things with no help in sight. Don’t worry, you’re not alone.

The truth about change is that it will keep happening. Sometimes we are seeking it and sometimes it is thrust upon us. We have the choice of how we respond! Change can certainly cause us to feel scared, angry, sad, or worried. Often times these feelings leave us feeling stuck or indecisive. Over the last 18 years, I have enjoyed working with individuals, couples and families of diverse cultures and ages coping with issues related to depression , anxiety, chronic illness, grief and loss, women's issues, marital conflict, and challenges related to transitions that we face throughout our lives.

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 Simi Valley. 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.
