I'm a certified anger management counselor, trained in Brainspotting , "Seeking Safety," "Trauma Resiliency Model", The Gottman Institute's "Bridging the Couple Chasm," Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Grief, Loss, and Forgiveness.
Relationship issues? Trouble communicating? Anger? Depression? Anxiety? Low self-esteem? Sometimes we need help from a professional to cope with life's challenges. I don't use a "cookie-cutter" approach to psychotherapy. I tailor my approach to meet my client's needs. My goal is to help you develop life-changing habits to help you cope with life's obstacles. I will create a warm, supportive environment where we can work together to identify strengths and areas for growth/ development to reach your fullest potential, enhance relationships, build effective communication skills, or finding your way back to yourself and others.

I use evidence based practices such as Brainspotting , EMDR, CBT/DBT, and exploring your unconscious desires to help you make a change.
You have done therapy in the past but you feel ready to confront those deeper issues that are affecting your relationships and how you view yourself. You are drawn to avoidant partners and can't understand why. You struggle with self confidence, self-doubt, feeling anxious, and finding where you belong. Your friends don't seem to always understand and want you to desperately "move on". You often think the problem is you. But It isn't.

EMDR and Brainspotting are both known as brain-based therapies and are some of the fastest-growing areas in psychological health. Brainspotting and EMDR combine the strength of brain-based, somatic and talk therapies into a powerful healing process. The use of EMDR and Brainspotting can accelerate the ability for the brain to activate its own natural healing. If you are looking for a change, or talk therapy isn't working to help you to achieve your goals, please contact me. We can explore the possibility of Trauma Intensive treatments including EEG Brain Mapping, Neurofeedback, EMDR and Brainspotting psychotherapy.

I specialize in art therapy and brainspotting , and I offer these paths to help clients explore emotions as an alternative to traditional talking-therapy.
As a Mindfulness trauma-resolve therapist, I work with children, adolescents, adults, and families struggling to find relief from many of life’s challenges. Relational difficulties, family problems, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and life transitions can all be more difficult than we imagine. I encourage collaboration in a safe, nonjudgmental space to gently explore these difficulties, and build solutions that grow confidence. I believe in the healing potential of the brain, which is why I pull from a variety of practices to achieve real change.

You’ve struggled to find time to make a regular weekly therapy appointment to cope with the isolation, overwhelm, anxiety, and sad feelings. Taking a really good deep breath sounds so simple, yet you are so busy that you forget to even take that 10-seconds to take care of yourself. You’re tired of feeling overwhelmed, unorganized, your heart constantly racing, or have an unending headache. It is exhausting to try to function this way. This is where EMDR Intensive come into play. About a week of your time, compared to one time a week for who knows how long.

You and your partner sit silently on the sofa. The TV is on, & you're both looking at your phones. Though in the same room, you might as well be a world apart. You're feeling neglected, unappreciated, & lonely. There's little affection between you these days. You try to focus on all the positives in your life, but your unhappiness is becoming the elephant in the room - harder and harder to ignore. You long to feel desired, appreciated, & a priority in your partner's life. You're afraid to talk to your partner about your true feelings as conversations are often misunderstood or full of conflict. You don't know where to turn.

You think you're handling things, but then somewhere along the way, you've lost your grip. You can't sleep, you can't calm yourself down, and it seems like everyday stress deeply impacts you. You've tried but you can't reason with your thoughts. You know they're dark, or dramatic, or too anxious, but you can't seem to stop the cycle. Maybe it's impacting you internally only. Maybe it's affecting your work. Maybe you're losing friendships or relationships because of the emotions that take over so easily. It's exhausting. Whatever the case, you know it's time for help. Surely somebody knows the way out of this mess.

Are you struggling with worry, anxiety, stress or depression? Do these feelings rob you of energy, joy, the life you hoped for? Depression makes it hard to care for yourself and your loved ones. Anxiety can make you feel trapped and stressed by worry. Maybe your stress is coming from your job, or relationships with your partner or family members. Relationships can be complicated, misunderstandings or poor communication leading to hurt feelings, painful arguments or separations. I help individuals with these issues, and also those who are experiencing grief. Call me about how counseling with me can offer help and hope.

What type of Thousand Oaks mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Thousand Oaks?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
