I have a special interest in working with people undergo treatment for cancer , and their caregivers.
I offer psychotherapy, with a focus on managing difficulties and learning from life's struggles. Together we reach an understanding of what you're experiencing, and create solutions geared toward easing your discomfort. When we are receptive to the voice of the unconscious, through exploration of dreams and struggles, we can find inner wisdom to meet life's challenges.

I have always been attracted to both ends of life's spectrum, birth and death. My work centers around the grief we experience in life, whether over the death of someone we love, the loss of a relationship, or an ending in a chapter of our lives. Our work together is based on a mindful, cognitive behavioral approach, as we gently explore the connection between your emotions and the thoughts behind them. I help you process your grief the way you need to do it and guide you as you find your way back to yourself.

Therapy must be purposeful to improve the quality of life. To improve our relationships, our own psychological and emotional wellbeing. It takes place in an environment that is safe and supportive. It takes place with a therapist who is genuine, sensitive and skillful. When you enter therapy with me I bring all of my education and experience to share with you. I also bring a measure of humility and open mindedness that 38 years of private practice has taught me. I've learned as much from the people I see as, I hope, they have learned from me.

I vividly remember the first time I used this website to seek out a therapist. I was filled with despair, intense fear, shame and insecurity but had no consciousness into these emotions. I was so disconnected from my body and my spirit. My thoughts were racing and I was stuck in patterns of self-sabotage and harmful coping mechanisms. It took everything out of me to make eye contact with another person as I began to speak about this. I will never forget the compassion I experienced from my first therapist as she held sacred space for me to begin this process. I strive to embody the same deep compassion for each therapy client I see.

Struggling with addiction and feel rehab isn’t an option? Leaving your family, job, school and responsibilities for an extended period of time is not always needed to get yourself healthy and on track. If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction, I know the challenges of this lifestyle. Being caught in the cycle of addiction is hard--feelings of fear, failure, guilt, and shame. You may have tried stopping on your own, only to find yourself engaging in the same unhelpful behavior. Breaking this cycle alone is tough! Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab. I specialize in moderation & abstinence based approaches.

My approach is accepting, caring, confidential and non-judgmental, as well as practical and grounded. I help people to get clarity about their problems, and to connect with their own inner wisdom, creativity, self awareness, and healing. This allows for a natural emergence of positive choices, good solutions, and actions that are in alignment with their true selves and deepest desires. I work with individuals, couples, teens and families on improving communication, resolving conflicts, and developing more trust and acceptance, which helps to improve closeness and positive feelings in relationships.

I enjoy working with clients of all ages. My specialty is children, adolescents and young adults. I am relationship based, meaning it is important for my clients to feel comfortable with me. . I incorporate educational information and skill development into sessions and role model and practice new skills. Cognitive behavior therapy is the foundation for much of the work we do. Children often express their feelings best in play. I often utilize games, art , stories and imaginative play to help children communicate their feelings. Parents of children are integral to the success of therapy and become partners in the treatment of their son or daughter.

I enjoy working with individuals (18 or older) that are curious about themselves, reflective and who desire change. The therapeutic alliance or the relational 'good fit' stands out as the fundamental factor in effective treatment. I am interested in developmental issues in adults and addressing repetitive patterns that stand in the way of growth. My approach is psychoanalytic psychotherapy including attachment , mentalization and creativity based treatments.

Have you ever wondered which experiences in your life have the most influence over the way that you feel? I specialize in helping you find these answers through relationships. Your relationship with yourself, partner and family. Together we can tailor a treatment to focus on your strengths and areas of needed support. I utilize a specialized modality called EMDR that can help us gain insight about yourself, your past experiences that have shaped who you are today, and work through the healing process together.

The path to living the life you want begins where courage and fear meet. When we are low in courage and high in fear we feel unsettled, busied, strained and eventually-void of hope. The thought that life will get better or that we will feel better becomes hijacked by the void. Our day to day begins to feel meaningless. This absence of meaning can be experienced as emptiness, sadness, loneliness, despair and misery. It can also be experienced as restlessness, irritability, avoidance, stomachaches, headaches and illness. These experiences drive our thoughts, beliefs, decisions and behaviors and can lead to mental and physical decline.

The last year has been hard on almost all of us. Has trauma, loss or grief made it difficult to live the life you really want? How do you imagine your life changing or being more satisfying? My approach is respectful, encouraging and focused on growth. I'm trained in what are called "power therapies." EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and BSP (Brainspotting) have the potential to heal deeply, from within the brain and body, and create understanding and relief.

What type of Ventura 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 Ventura?
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.
