My guess is you're strong, motivated & already succeeding in multiple areas of your life. In today's hustle, however, you're not alone in feeling overwhelmed by everyday stressors, sense of worthlessness & an unnerving anxiety. Perhaps on top of balancing a life of family obligations, career demands, & friendship circles you've also experienced a major life change that has left you rattled & isolated? Self-care and inner peace are possible in today's busy lifestyles. Together, we can pave your path to improved mental wellness.

For more than two decades, I have made a commitment in the professional realm to understand the human condition. What I have learned is that we are unique yet unifying and vast yet reachable. It is my passion to take a journey with you and learn about what makes you who you are and how this interplays with the world and relationships around you. Everyone has a story. If you don't know yours, then we'll write it together. Emotional success often means life success and is contingent on not just knowing your story but telling your story.

I work with individuals, couples, and families who want to address long-term problems and patterns. It is through this kind of personal exploration that a deeper understanding can be attained and the sense-of-self can be strengthened. A psychodynamic approach can go below the surface to address problems, improve personal relationships, and stop self-destructive behavior. So often, past experiences can interfere with our present lives and we find ourselves suffering through repeated ongoing pain.

I believe the area that I am best suited in treating is the addictive mind. Assisting in changing the way that you perceive problems and engaging you in the importance and meaning of what you are experiencing. Making meaning of our suffering and losses is most important. I view most issues presented by my clients as traumatic, accompanied with shock, struggling to make sense of what is happening. Whether it be a divorce, a death, or a change of circumstance we are required to 'change'. Developing flexabilty, humor and courage for life is my goal in our work.

Life is dynamic and full of challenges, and sometimes we are presented with difficulties that we do not feel equipped to handle. Major life concerns, relationship issues, or old patterns can leave us feeling stuck, overwhelmed or uncertain about how to move forward. I have come to the belief that much of our unhappiness comes from "not knowing." When we lack information about how to have healthy relationships, how to cope with adversity, or how to survive and thrive in the world, it can lead us down paths we never intended to journey.

All meaningful lives involve pain, there is no escaping this. Even if we cannot avoid pain, we can learn to rise above it and still create a life worth living. Life will never be unbearable due to circumstances, but only from a lack of purpose and meaning. My job is to help you look at your situation differently, and to develop a committed action plan to make the positive changes you have been wanting to. Like the Serenity Prayer says, we need to accept the things we cannot change, and have courage to change what we can, starting with ourselves.

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 Laguna Niguel. 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.
