I offer therapeutic tools and support for people dealing with anxiety, panic, depression, loss of self-esteem, and other life challenges.
Many of us have stories running through our head that dictate how we live our lives. I work with people to identify their stories and teach them to challenge how they’ve always thought, and how they’ve always done things. Indeed, I frequently tell my clients that I’m not in the relief and comfort business. Rather, my purpose is to provide people with the tools to experience joy and happiness.

A personal crisis is a critical moment in people's lives. Helping people get through a difficult time or a big life transition is enormously satisfying for me. I have particular interest and experience in dealing with depression, stress, grief and loss, relationship problems, self-esteem issues, abuse survivors, and personal growth. It is a joy for me to see people breathe new life into old relationships, and bounce back after various setbacks in their lives. With degrees in theology, psychology, philosophy and holistic development, I love to work with people who are seeking health, wholeness and happiness.

“Let me support you to build a greater awareness of your wisdom, and strength” As a licensed psychotherapist I can provide that support, awareness, problem-solving skills, and greater coping strategies for issues as depression, anxiety, parenting, domestic violence, and relationship difficulties. I have clinical experience working with children (play therapy), individuals, families, couples and groups. We all have an 'inner critic'. A pattern of blaming ourselves for events that were out of our control. This negative inner talk is more powerful when we fall into anxiety or depression.

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.

If so, you probably know, as I do, that this is extremely unhelpful.

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 Encino. 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.
