Treatment of depression, anxiety, disruptive behaviors, ADHD, anger, trauma/abuse and relationship problems.
Therapy is a journey of self discovery. There are challenges that you may experience in your life that test your resilience and your courage. I want to provide you with the tools you need to cope with life's challenges and build upon your personal strengths. My therapy is about giving people the opportunity to share their story. For more then 10 years I have worked with children/teens and adults who have experienced trauma/abuse. They often feel terrified and alone. I believe that when people feel safe and supported that's when healing process begins.

Mindfulness-based therapy can help! Mindfulness, when combined with other therapies, is highly effective in treating anxiety, stress-related illnesses, depression and other issues.
You are exhausted from the constant stress and anxiety. The anxious and negative thoughts seem to be on a constant loop in your head. It feels endless and out of your control. You are a strong, successful person but can't seem to find a way out of this. Work is no longer an escape and the stress and anxiety seem to be impacting your work performance. You are noticing physical symptoms as a result and are desperate for relief.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in 91401. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
