I work with adults, adults transitioning into retirement, teens, couples, Insomnia-- using CBT-I, substance use , anxiety, grief, depression, and OCD.
The psyche strives to maintain a balance between opposing qualities while at the same time actively seeking its own development or as C.G. Jung called it, individuation. My goal is to help you reach a balance in life, to help identify symptoms. You may be struggling with Insomnia, depression, anxiety, loss, or negative patterns impacting daily life. My goal is to find purpose within yourself by seeing symptoms as symbols of deeper meaning. Within a safe therapeutic container of non-judgement, narrative therapy, dreams, creativity, and direction we can increase your awareness of desires, fears, patterns, and strengths together.

You can't change what happened, but you can choose what happens next. Maybe you've behaved in ways you aren't proud of. These behaviors ( substance use , anxiety, depression, social isolation) are ways you learned to protect yourself from pain. This is normal, and it’s okay. These unhelpful coping skills aren't protecting you anymore, they seem to be making your problems grow. You want to change your behavior to match your values, what's important to you. You want to live a life worth celebrating. I'm here to support you in moving from thinking to action.

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.

All of us are trying to get somewhere, to find meaning, love, and fulfillment, to make our hopes a reality. Yet sometimes no matter how hard we try, we can't change our lives in ways that we want. What we don't realize is that our very efforts to keep things together can actually keep us asleep to new horizons. Maybe this sounds familiar to you: You feel stuck in your drinking or drug use, your relationship, pornography, or other sexual behaviors that are causing problems you desperately want to wake up from.

When searching for a therapist it's vital that we find someone we can truly trust and believe can help us. Security and comfort with a therapist is very important. When a client finds these features in a therapist then they are better able to set and reach goals to fulfill their dreams and to find their meaning and purpose in life. I provide a warm, safe and supportive environment for clients so they may feel that they are seen and understood. The basis of my work begins with the birth of a secure attachment.

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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Ventura?
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.
