I believe a strong therapeutic relationship can change your life. I bring over twenty years of experience to my work with adults, adolescents and couples. I have extensive training in psychodynamic psychotherapy--a depth therapy that can bring about lasting change. Within this framework, my clients can safely explore the emotional injuries of the past and develop healthier and more loving ways of dealing with their relationships. We crave closeness, yet for many, our childhoods have left us poorly prepared. Instead of feeling joy and purpose, we feel misunderstood, lonely and depressed. I work successfully with my clients to transform their lives and their relationships.

All it takes is a little bit of adulting to realize that right about when we think we have it all together, life throws us a curveball. These instances can leave us feeling stuck – stuck in unhealthy patterns and behaviors, in feelings of anxiety or depression, and even in relational conflicts that seem impossible. For some, it’s balancing the demands of parenthood or a job situation that feels like it’s heading toward burnout. For others, it might be relationships that lack boundaries and expectations. However, here’s a glimmer of hope…you have the ability to move beyond “just surviving” and toward a place where you can thrive.

Therapy gives us an opportunity to find and give voice to our authentic selves, achieving healing in the process. And as we heal, our relationships heal. I am passionate about working with couples, adults, and teens who have become stuck in unsatisfying relationships, destructive patterns, or their own individual pain. This "stuck-ness" can leave us feeling alone, misunderstood, anxious, and depressed. I provide a safe, non-judgmental space that is caring, challenging, and encouraging as we work together to develop new insights and create the personal and relational growth you are seeking.

We all live in a world of stories... The meaning we attach to these stories become a template of how we feel about ourselves. The emotional outcome of this thinking can be depression, anxiety and at other times, happiness. What is the meaning of these stories? I believe facts bring us to knowledge, but stories lead us to wisdom. Therapy is a creative and supportive process of getting to know your true self, of re-authoring the old story and writing a new one. Discover who you are... apart from the problem, and find a unexpected path to build inner strength and resources. We all have within us access to a greater wisdom, but we may not know this until we speak out loud. In a place that feels safe enough for us to talk about what is really going on in our lives without fear of being judged, abandoned, or criticized. I bring to therapy a combination of insight, intuition, emotional support and guidance. Therapy can be done through visual storytelling (Art Therapy), writing, and talking with a therapist. Someone who attends to you with acceptance, support and genuine curiosity, exploring how you make sense of your world.

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 Burbank. 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.
