Hello and welcome to my practice. I am a licensed psychologist with over 44 years of experience practicing psychotherapy with individuals and couples. When you are feeling troubled and don't know where to turn, therapy can be a safe place to work through your difficulties and concerns. Many of us would rather try to deal with problems on our own; but when you are feeling "stuck" or when problems keep repeating, an objective person who knows how to listen can help you through a difficult time.

Relationships and Life Transitions can be challenging. Successful partnerships don't happen by accident. DISCOVER individual blocks to become the partner you want to be. CREATE a relationship that brings out the best in you. CHANGE unproductive thoughts and behaviors that keep you stuck. I am skilled at helping you learn and practice skills which can lead to a more fulfilled personal and professional life. I also work with "mixed agenda", couples (couples on the verge of a break up), who need short term counseling to help them make their own decision about what their next steps will be.

Are you emotionally exhausted and mentally drained from constantly being more concerned with others’ wants and needs while yours get dismissed? Do you second guess decisions because it’s hard to trust your own opinion? I bet it would feel like such a relief to not worry about what others are thinking about you. I GET IT! My clients have either had a chaotic childhood or a single traumatic experience that has altered their self perception. They have so much compassion for others, yet struggle to turn it inward. They want to “love themselves”, but continue to engage in behaviors that make them feel less than.

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.

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.
