My training has allowed me to work in a variety of settings and with a diverse group of individuals, families, and couples ranging in ethnicity, socioeconomics and age.
Everyone has a past but we can't let it define us. Regardless of the reason(s) that bring you to therapy, I believe you are the expert on your own life so providing you with a healing environment where you feel safe, respected, supported and valued will always be the first goal. I focus on helping clients gain personal insight, identify problematic patterns, improve coping skills, develop feelings of self-acceptance and satisfaction and uncover strengths.

He works with Individuals, Couples and Families.
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 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 love working with couples as well as individuals interested in hike or nature-based therapy. From our very first session you will take home practical tools for both communication and relaxation. In moments of stress, you will have less blaming ways to express what you need to keep things from escalating. For those times when you do lose your cool, you will know more about calming yourself down before saying something you regret. I'll help you learn to be kinder to yourself, to be aware of how you talk to yourself. For starters, don't believe everything you think!

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 provide therapy for children, adolescents, adults, couples & families.
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.

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.

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.

Do you want to change the emotional climate of your relationship? I am passionate about working with couples to transform relationships from isolation to intimate connection, together building a safe haven. Relationships can get stuck in destructive patterns leaving couples feeling isolated in their marriage. As couples grow in self-awareness and share their more authentic and vulnerable feelings they can build a haven of safety, including increased compassion, ability to comfort each other and resolve arguments. Through the process couples discover they feel more secure with themselves and other relationships are enhanced as well. Let this be your story.

Healthy relationships are my goal and my mission. I'm especially passionate about working with couples , both premarital and marital. I achieve this best through a program called "Ultimate Integrity." Most of my couples say that a lack of integrity is a major problem in their relationships and this (UI) program can be very helpful to heal the wounds of lies and deceit and replace with truth and love. Many couples also struggle with stress, depression, anxiety, and addictions. I'm very proactive to identify effective strategies and coping skills to resolve these concerns.

I treat individuals and couples dealing with some of the more common issues people encounter in their sex lives: lack of desire, mismatched desire, sexual or pelvic pain; orgasm issues; erection and ejaculation issues; problems secondary to pregnancy and the postpartum period.
I believe that everybody has the right to a safe, satisfying and pleasurable sex life. I also believe that most people have the answers they need to resolve, or improve their issues, somewhere inside them. I am there to help you uncover those answers in a safe, caring and compassionate way. I believe deeply in treating the whole person.

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.
