My specialty is working with adolescents to adults. In my practice I integrate several therapeutic methods to achieve your goals... I am also a certified EMDR Therapist. EMDR is a highly effective treatment for people that need deep change, yet do not want to stay stuck with experiencing intense feelings of pain and shame. My client's have found that EMDR has also been a powerful aid in helping them breakthrough addictive feelings/behaviors ( depression, anxiety and behavioral addictions) that keep them in a negative and frustrated mental loop. We end the session with positive protocols that strengthen your objectives.

I have worked in the mental health field since 2012, and have always had a curiosity for human development and how our experiences shape us into who we are today. I received my Master's in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy From Pepperdine Graduate School of Education and Psychology. I currently work predominantly with families, teens and children wanting to figure out why they feel "stuck” or how to help themselves overcome their anxiety, depression, familial issues, and other interpersonal challenges.

Having issues with your teens? Don't worry it's not you. The adolescent years can be brutal, especially for teens today who feel pressured by their peers and social media. As Dr. Stephen Illardi points out, we simply weren't designed to live in such a fast-paced plugged in society. I help teens navigate thoughts and emotions that overwhelm them so that they can feel confident in their skin. The teens I work with go on to enjoy both emotional and academic success. I work with women as well. If you're going through a major life transition like divorce, career change, or postpartum challenges, I'd love to work with you!

But the transformation to your best self is profound, and typically life altering.

People tend to seek help when their lives feel out of balance. Sometimes this can be caused by a new or difficult situation, such as a shift in career plans, family life, or an intimate relationship that leads one to experience feelings of confusion and sadness. Other times we may not be sure where our depression or anxiety stem from at all. As humans, we possess a strong capacity for resilience and self-care, but it is when our regular coping strategies no longer work that we may turn to therapy for new perspectives and outcomes.

Maybe you have always dealt with underlying feelings of despair, depression, inner conflict and self-criticism. Maybe you have become an expert at balancing your life despite your dissatisfaction with parts of it. There is no need to continue to deal with past traumas, grief/loss, adversity or missed opportunities for healthy, successful relationships.

Coping Skills Therapists
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, therapists in Encino can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in Encino or for an Encino coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Encino coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.
