During my 30+ years of clinical practice I find myself working particularly effective with important life transition stages, i.e. adolescents, young adult, mid-life, later-life. I view issues of loss, marriage, divorce, identity, vocation and aging as doorways to a deeper and more actualized life. Out of intensive study, practice, and my own life experiences, I meet the client at their own unique crossroad. Together we engage in a journey of symptom-relief, discovery and new possibilities. I am an active and engaging therapist...learning from hundreds of private practice clients & families & additional hundreds of agency participants.

I am currently offering teletherapy sessions until it is safe to return to in-person. I offer a free 20-minute phone consultation so we can chat and see if we feel like a good fit. Feeling unsupported along with lacking in confidence in your abilities can be heartbreaking. I believe it is essential to listen to the healthy part of you that knows there has to be something better than constant worry. There is!

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.

The last year has been hard on almost all of us. Has trauma, loss or grief made it difficult to live the life you really want? How do you imagine your life changing or being more satisfying? My approach is respectful, encouraging and focused on growth. I'm trained in what are called "power therapies." EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and BSP (Brainspotting) have the potential to heal deeply, from within the brain and body, and create understanding and relief.

At certain times, life overwhelms all of us. Problems pile up and we feel frustrated and defeated. We may have held things inside for months, years or even decades. We come to a place of anxiety, depression, drugs and alcohol dependence, relationship conflict, or isolation. The ease and vitality of life that we once experienced seems too far removed. At the worst, we lose all perspective and feel hopeless. We don't want to feel this way anymore. It can be so hard to take that first step and reach out for help.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in Ventura or for a Ventura CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy. They include CBT therapists, CBT psychologists, CBT psychotherapists and CBT counselors.
