One thing we're guaranteed of in life is CHANGE. And quite often, change can be intensely emotional and very stressful. I am passionate about assisting people through transitions. Common transitions include marriage, divorce and other relationship endings, births and deaths, health issues, mid-life adjustments, career changes, parenting at different stages, even identity and self-esteem struggles. While transition has the ability to turn people's lives upside down, it needn't be that way. This is where therapy can be extremely helpful.

I often incorporate Mindfulness into my approach and emphasize the importance of living in the present.
Everyday tasks such as going to work and spending time with friends or loved ones can be difficult when we are struggling with our self-worth and cannot seem to find meaning in our life. We may feel lonely, and overwhelmed and perhaps the solutions we have used in the past are not helping. Are you ready to reach out to find someone who can assist you in making sense of your confusion? Whether you are overtaken by emotions, feelings of self-doubt or any other interpersonal struggle, I would be honored to work along side you while we explore your life and create self-awareness and change.

Is your teen acting differently? Are they feeling anxious, isolating, displaying low self esteem, having challenges at school or relationship issues with their friends or family? Being a teen today is not easy, especially in a society where social media and comparison consume their developing minds. Do you want to help your teen overcome the many complex issues that impact them daily? You don't have to go through this difficult period alone. Many teens benefit from having a safe place to process their thoughts and feelings while learning coping skills to manage their symptoms.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Family Systems and Mindfulness are also routinely integrated into the therapy process.
I enjoy helping clients better understand themselves so they can make a more informed choice about how they wish to move through the world. This is best achieved when a client feels safe, heard and not judged, so that is the essence of what I try to provide to all clients right away - a safe and relaxing space to be listened to with empathy and concern. Trauma and emotional pain can be difficult to deal with, and it’s a privilege to be able to support you as quickly as possible, with evening and weekend availability and your choice of in-office and remote sessions.

We use cognitive behavioral therapy, DBT, ACT & mindfulness practices to support you.
Are you finding it is hard to stay focused and take care of yourself while taking care of others? Perhaps you are navigating health challenges, chronic illness, chronic pain or are going through the process of pregnancy to postpartum. All of these experiences can really increase anxiety making daily tasks and responsibilities all that much harder to achieve. You put on a brave face so everyone thinks you have it all together & that you're fine, but that's not true. In fact, keeping up the façade that everything is great is leaving you feeling exhausted & you are ready for a change.

Through a combination of traditional talk therapy, mindfulness training, CBT and psychoeducation, clients manage and explore specific and broad psychological, emotional, and behavioral issues.
Trusting and developing our capacities to navigate and effect even the most painful, stressful and overwhelming experiences, is key to overall health, well-being and growth. Understanding our early development and how it touches our present, defining boundaries; internally with thoughts, feelings and expectations, and externally with others, feeling secure in relationships, and being mindful and effective in communicating and reacting, are valuable ways of managing emotional and mental health issues and enhancing peace, trust, healing and growth. I work successfully with clients to develop these traits and states of being.

I always value mindfulness , meditation, CBT, specific skills training, somatic work, and art/play therapy.
You've known that some issues have been always holding you back from reaching your full potential in life, career, and relationships. You realize that these unresolved and unattended issues do not serve your life, and keep sabotaging your happiness on different levels... Perhaps, you even tried working through some of them on your own, but deep down you know you need some external help and guidance to heal from them. You would like to reach some peace, let go of pain, learn how to accept and love yourself better, learn some real tools and skills to be more resilient, feel strong and confident, and be able to enjoy life.

Clients may learn to discover and work with their own methods to support growth and awareness, through talking, spirituality, energy systems, breath work, mindfulness , and/or intuitive skills, so they can upgrade their innate ability to heal and thrive.
I teach simple mind and body self-care practices that can be used daily. I help people move from surviving to thriving. Words are not enough. In order to embrace radical change, the entire being needs to work as one. Using comprehensive practices, aspects of living that were once blocked are able to be cleared; then a more integrated consciousness can emerge. You return to your natural state. I am best suited for people who are on a path of personal growth, transpersonal awareness, health and wellness.

Through mindfulness based practices, meditation, insight and providing a safe space to show up exactly as you are, I will assist you in your healing journey as you create the life you desire.
As we face uncertainty in our lives now more than ever, it is essential that we learn tools to help us capture internal peace, despite external circumstances. I recognize the true power that curiosity and a listening ear can have in honoring our life experiences while tapping into our inner strengths and resources. I assist children, adolescents, and young adults in navigating life transitions, stress, depression and anxiety from an atmosphere of compassion and acceptance. I guide parents in finding a deeper understanding of their child’s behavior - allowing them to truly “see” their child while helping them cope with big feelings.

I often incorporate CBT, DBT, and mindfulness into my practice.
When everything is in proper order and balanced, healing unfolds naturally. However, we do not exist in a vacuum. Life can impact us in profound ways. We may at times feel stuck, overwhelmed, or hopeless. Sometimes, we cannot see the “elephant in the room” because it all looks gray, something blocks our view, we thought it was “normal”, or believed we were the “problem”. When we pinpoint the source of distress/setback and enhance the tools under our belt, we have increased capacity for positive change. Through the therapeutic process, I strive to help others with self-discovery, personal growth, and increased quality of life.

My methodology is to assist in identifying client goals and then select from a variety of interventions specifically tailored to the individual which include: Emotion Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Attachment Theory, Theraplay, Mindfulness and Dialectic Behavioral Therapy.
The decision to engage a therapist is deeply personal and may seem challenging. It is a unique relationship, where ideally, you can be in a safe, empathic environment and talk to someone with in depth psychological training and significant life experience. I offer both to my clients, treating individuals, couples, children, adolescents and families. These relationships have led me to focus on the treatment of: anxiety, depression, relational communications, work place stressors, substance use/abuse, attachment disorders, emotional regulation issues, self image, family systems, ADHD, grief and loss, parenting, obsessive/compulsive behaviors, impulse control, mood disorders and relational conflicts.

For clients in Westlake Village with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based therapists in Westlake Village can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Westlake Village MBCT therapists.
