Are you interested in joining a small group of couples who are exploring the growing edge in their intimate relationships? My life partner and I teach couples the tools to deepen their communication, and increase intimacy and trust.
Do you wonder if you and your partner are growing apart? Do you keep having the same argument, without anything changing? Do you feel like giving up? Sometimes the feelings that bring couples together get lost in the struggles of everyday life. Learn how to resolve conflicts and share feelings without arguing. Use conflict to create deeper intimacy instead of distance. Relationship counseling helps couples learn to grow together instead of drifting apart. I work with couples and individuals to help them grow together and stay together. I would like to help you and your partner have a loving relationship.

I assist adults, couples , and adolescents who struggle with anxiety, past trauma, negative self-image, and relational conflicts.
Sometimes, to say "Life is challenging" doesn't even begin to describe the challenges we face. Perhaps you’ve tried to avoid them, or maybe you overthink them to exhaustion. Whatever you are experiencing, you are not alone. We all have unique styles, including how we face and deal with life’s conflicts and stressors. My therapeutic approach addresses your individual needs by helping you discover your strengths, build resiliency, and develop the coping skills you've been longing to find. My passion is to help you understand and overcome the issues that have kept you stuck and guide you toward living your life with purpose.

I work with trauma survivors, individuals and couples in high conflict relationships, and people who just feel that they need assistance getting their lives on they path they want to be on.
Are you or a family member feeling anxious or depressed? COVID has changed many people's lives and change can increase anxiety or depression. I offer "telecare" where you may attend video conference sessions via Zoom on your smart phone or computer from the comfort of your home. Therapy with someone you trust is a powerful tool for creating and maintaining emotional health. It is possible to gain insight and learn new ways of finding happiness and relief. I am not judgmental and understand that we generally do the best we can, which sometimes is not as great as other times. Change is possible with the help of a caring therapist.

As I enter tonight's journal entry I sit here thinking I'm not sure what happened to me. I don't feel the same anymore, not towards my spouse , not towards myself. I'm overwhelmed by the stressors of life, and they seemed to have taken over my spirit, energy and my relationships. I feel anxious, depressed, disconnected and most of all confused. I want to feel good again, I want the love of my life to see me again, I want to have confidence in myself, my marriage and most of all I want to live again. Many of us feel this way but don't express it to anyone. We begin to question is it even possible possible for any of this to change?

I also specialize in working with couples , with an emphasis on communication skills, understanding the role of temperaments and love languages, and foregiveness.
If you are struggling with life's challanges and are seeking tools to better cope with or overcome those challanges I want to help you. The foundation of my work is the collaborative and proven effective tools of Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Exploring and understanding our core beliefs and the relationship between thoughts and feelings gives us the tools to make effective change. Making a commitment to changing behaviors helps us sort out what we actually have control over and frees us from expecting others to change in order for us to be happy.

For over 30 years I have had the honor of working with individuals, couples , and families. My ideal client are ages 18 years of age through late-adulthood. They are seeking a safe place to talk about current issues in their lives. Many are going through a life transition such as attending college, starting a new job, going thru a separation or divorce, loss through death, etc. My goal is to join you as a guest "on your path" as you discover your inner resources, set personal goals, develop coping and communication skills. I enjoy supporting women as they navigate life's currents and flourishing as they grow older!

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.
