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.

I utilize different therapeutic approaches to help you live your full potential including Dialectical Behavior Therapy ( DBT ), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness techniques, and others.
Welcome to my practice. My approach to therapy is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space where you can explore and identify the underlying beliefs driving your behaviors, shaping your habits, and impacting your relationships. We will work on a little going back, a lot on the present with a focus on the future. I ask questions and give feedback. I am not a head nodding type of therapist with long annoying blocks of silence. I put things out there for you to consider. If it resonates with you, we go with it. If it doesn't, we don't.

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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Thousand Oaks?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
