As a licensed psychologist with over 40 years of experience, I have had the privilege of working with people who struggle with a variety of emotional, relational and behavioral issues, including depression, anxiety, family conflict, loss and grief, trauma, elderly issues and more.
While life can bring good experiences and satisfactions, it also can be difficult, even overwhelming. Unexpected and unintended experiences can cause pain, discouragement, uncertainty, anxiety, and more. These struggles can be personal, in your relationships, or in circumstances beyond your control, causing you to feel frustrated, confused about what's happening and what to do....maybe even trapped and desperate. I love working with individuals, couples and families to discover what is going wrong, and how to deal with it so you can move into the better life you need and want. This is my goal and desire for you.

My areas of experience are in marital and relational distress, anxiety, and depression.
Life is filled with challenges and there are times when it can feel overwhelming. Perhaps you're finding yourself repeating the same hopeless pattern of arguing with your partner and you can't seem to resolve conflict and connect with each other. Or maybe you find yourself feeling keyed up and anxious, unable to stop the cycle of fearful thoughts that cloud your mind throughout the day. I work with teens, college students, individuals, and couples who feel stuck and out of control, and aid them in the process of empowerment and transformation.

Depression. Anxiety. Relationship and career problems. These very real difficulties of living represent potent opportunities for growth and transformation. In reality, this is not always easy to see. A key step is developing insight, combined with a willingness to accept increasing levels of personal responsibility. As a therapist and coach, my orientation is holistic. I incorporate a whole-person approach that emphasizes physical, mental, emotional, and interpersonal factors. I view human experience as an inherently creative process, and work to empower clients to harness their innate potential to create meaningful and fulfilling lives through committed action based on personal values.

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 Brea. 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.
