**I AM NOT CURRENTLY TAKING ON ANY NEW CLIENTS** One thing all have in common as human beings is a natural drive to discover and hold on to a strong sense of self as we navigate the world. When the challenges we face in life cause us to question our identity, this doesn't mean you are broken - it means that you are human.

Are you experiencing, stress, anxiety, feelings of uncertainty, difficulties coping, escalating relationship conflicts, does your performance in what is meaningful to you increasingly feels insufficient, whether at work, school or being a parent, these are all signs that you lost too much contact with your soul. It means you’re so good that you lost contact with yourself. Now let’s work on what will make you whole. Part of this is exploring that you were more than who you think you are, you were more than you know; both inside and outside of you there are more discoveries to be made, too often this process ends prematurely.

Our journey through life is complex and for every person, will come with successes, joys, and pleasures as well as challenges, concerns, and problems.

I have been honored to support this journey for individuals of all ages when faced with concerns related to learning differences, school/college/work struggles, social/relational challenges, and the process of developing an identity that one can be proud of.

Relationships between husbands, wives, lovers, boy/girl friends, children or parents can be tricky. Happy, satisfying and fulfilling relationships require attention, energy, fun, humor, communication, time and investment of yourself. Too often relationships are hampered by misunderstandings, hurtful actions, stress, differences of opinions, unmet needs, and different expectations. Personality changes over time, affairs of the heart, infidelity, unmet sexual intimacy, abuse, cruel words, neglect, self-centeredness, different communication styles, different goals, values and dissimilar interests or fun activities also create unhappiness in relationships.

There's really something to be said about the challenges of exploring, understanding and harnessing our very active internal lives in the attempt to make sense of it all, to feel safe in our day to day. I'm endeared to the process and feel that in order to heal we have to work with others, be it community, loved ones, or Psychologist, to gather the best parts of ourselves and turn the incredibly complicated, painful and fragile into things elegant, agile, and straight-forward. The therapeutic process as a living and breathing construction. To build and strengthen the scaffolding in order to find authenticity, uniqueness and courage

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.

Life can feel overwhelming. Therapy can be a collaborative space where we look into issues that you would like to address. We can find ways to make life feel more manageable and, ultimately, more enjoyable. The quality of the therapeutic relationship itself has been shown to significantly influence treatment outcomes. I lead with a humanistic approach, which emphasizes authenticity and the idea that growth can happen while in an environment that is nourishing. My goal is to help my clients feel understood and empowered. Through this process, you may step into greater self-discovery and self-acceptance.

When working with my clients I make sure to tailor therapy to meet their needs including: finding ways to make interacting with their world easier and more manageable, developing coping skills, and working on communication skills. I aim to empower my clients and help them realize that they are amazing and capable. When possible I also try to incorporate the family dynamic into treatment as family is an important factor.

FRUSTRATED with the SLOW PACE of others? Having difficulty COMMUNICATING with loved ones? Can't understand IRRATIONAL behavior by a partner or colleagues? Are you accused of being TOO INTENSE, COMPLEX or DRIVEN? These are all ways that intellectually gifted individuals may feel, without understanding what's causing it. Gifted individuals possess an intellectual complexity and emotional intensity that can lead them to experience life in ways qualitatively different from the norm. This can lead to challenges in COUPLES relationships or PROFESSIONAL settings. I have spent over 30 years working with gifted individuals, and am a CERTIFIED EFT COUPLES Therapist.

What type of Torrance 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 Torrance?
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.

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.
