Adult children of alcoholics often carry wounds unhealed from childhood.
I often hear, "I wish I'd found you sooner!" because my clients experience measurable change so quickly and effortlessly. As a Hypnotherapist I help clients access the power of their subconscious mind where the roots of the problem are stored to quickly resolve the past, eliminate mental road blocks, build self esteem and create new, positive automatic behaviors. Hypnosis is fun and relaxing--like a spa day for your brain that brings real and lasting change to your life. Kids and teens love it! Call for a free 15-minute phone consultation to learn how I can help.

It's difficult to choose a therapist off of a list so I hope it will provide some confidence knowing that I have been in private practice in Orange County for over 30 years. I specialize in relationship issues with couples, with various women's issues and in treating children. I have had great success with a specific journaling technique that I have developed and am confident that I can help you with whatever challenges you are currently experiencing. I know it's scary to start therapy, but I'm confident I can help you navigate this new experience in a way that will make you feel safe and comfortable.

When deciding if your child or adolescent could benefit from therapy services, it can be a stressful experience fueled by uncertainty. Whether your child is struggling with issues such as anxiety, depression, managing emotions/behavior, social skills, or issues at school, the goal of therapy is to identify the underlying cause and help the child develop the skills and tools necessary to better manage life's challenges. While addressing an individual child's specific challenges, it is also important to engage parents and other family members to identify how to best support long term positive change within the family unit.

Well-being may seem like a fantasy. The reality is everyone experiences struggles and pain that feel insurmountable. Well-being and peace may feel far away. Therapy isn't a magic wand, but it offers a path towards well-being, a way we can unravel where we're stuck and identify blind spots hindering us. As an individual, within a relationship, or amidst a family, we can become very tangled in our thoughts and circumstances. Sometimes it becomes hard to see that we have options and new possibilities. My goal is to support each client to reach this well-being.

I love working with children and adolescents. Before I get a history from you, I like to meet with your teenager to let them feel like they have a choice in picking their therapist. This gives them a sense of control and they are then more committed to the therapy. I will integrate the family as necessary. I have extensive success with children of divorce, those experiencing anxiety, depression, low self esteem and difficulty managing anger. I also connect well with adults and young adults dealing with life transitions.
