I have been practicing in Ventura for over 25 years. I specialize in helping people work through difficult areas in their lives, which are often relationships; all sorts of relationships. While marriage can be the most challenging relationship anyone will ever experience, it can also be the most rewarding. I help people learn to communicate more effectively and overcome any barriers or traumas that may be interfering with their relationships. I will help you identify how to find more satisfaction in your life and your relationships and how to experience peace and happiness within yourself.

for 4 years; & I'm a licensed marriage and family therapist, I’ve worked with Psychoanalyst Kristi Walsh, Ph.
"I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become." ~ Carl Jung. Do you feel overwhelmed, have pain, grief, anxiety, depression, or unseen shadows that prevent you from healing or from choosing better decisions, relationships, and allowing yourself to matter in your own life? My experience and education can help people hungering for more purpose, fulfillment, and nurturing relationships instead of dissonance, exhaustion, and sacrifice, those who know what you were aiming for, but discovered you’re at the top of the wrong ladder. If you feel like you’re different or unseen, then I may be the psychotherapist you’ve sought.

I enjoy working with individuals and couples around life transitions; marriage , break ups, losses, parenting, empty nesting, or simply the recognition of one's unfulfilled relationships or passions.
The wounds and scars of our childhood often cause us to repeat dysfunctional patterns in our attempt to heal. We don't repeat painful relationships out of masochism or familiarity; we repeat because we want a different outcome, one we believe will shift how we feel about ourselves and our past. As a psychoanalyst, I explore (not dwell on) early care-giving relationships, traumas, and other life events that shaped who you have become. As your emotional story is realized we use our therapy relationship, your current life, and ongoing awareness of your inner world to work through the stuck places and create a different future.

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.

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a practice that focuses on young adults, adults, seniors, couples, veterans, and families. I am also a United States Army Combat Veteran, and a father who knows what it is like to put other people's needs before your own. It takes time, exploration, and effort to learn a new way of looking at yourself. It takes time to see what is on the other side of the coin.

The answer is YES it is possible! I can help you to re-discover life again whether it's a path to self individualization, life transitions in your marriage .
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 have experience in working with a variety of issues, including relationship issues, weight and eating issues, trauma (incest, abuse, rape, crime, accidents, ptsd, tbi), marriage , divorce, family conflict, career/work problems, spiritual issues, identity development, anxiety and depression.
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.

Hi, My name is Steve. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and addiction coach living in Los Angeles. I have always been curious about life and people. As I reflect on my lived experiences I have come to understand that connecting with others in a meaningful way has been the thing that has brought me the most fulfillment and joy. A very old friend recently told me that, having known me over the years, they felt that the thing that was most important to me was freedom. This resonated as true to me and I believe it informs my work as a therapist and coach.

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.
