I'm qualified to help with a variety of challenges; however, I specialize in helping men and adolescents heal from addiction, anxiety, depression, and posttraumatic stress.
Are you feeling disconnected? Stressed, anxious, tired, or angry? Are you or your loved ones repeating behaviors, relationships, or situations, and wishing you could break the cycle? Maybe little things feel more frustrating or overwhelming than usual. Sometimes, we aren't sure what causes our distress, but we can sense we're not reaching our potential for health, happiness, or success. And even when we know the cause, change can still feel impossible. That's where I come in. My job is not to judge you--it's to listen, help you understand the root causes of your difficulties, and teach you practical tools to help change your life.

Change in life often cause anxiety and depression when adjustment and life challenges come our way.
Change - "Why do I need to change, how can I manage change, but I have always done it this way." Novelist and critic Marcel Proust talks about discovery and "learning to see with new eyes". I am an MFT and CADC II using cognitive behavior techniques to manage thoughts, feelings and behavior in my client centered practice. I believe change is not something to fear but something to embrace. I work with life transitions and the changes it brings to relationships, employment, religious beliefs, life stages and I am certified in Addiction Counseling.

My years of experience have prepared me to work with individuals with trauma, PTSD, depression, stress and anxiety; facilitate anger management; teach problem solving skills; acting out behaviors; deal with issues of gender identity; couples issues; parenting issues; and learn from the past, focus on the present, and plan for the future.
Life challenges can motivate us to overcome obstacles and solve problems; but sometimes these challenges can slow us down and make us feel hopeless and helpless, worried, and unfulfilled. If you feel isolated and unable to function effectively in your daily life, allow me to work with you in finding the YOU within that can better manage emotional, behavioral and communication challenges. If you are experiencing depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, or low self-esteem, contact me for a consultation session. I look forward to being of service to you and join YOU in your journey.

Parenting your teen has nearly destroyed you. Their anger, depression, and self-destruction has devastated your entire family. Most days, you're barely hanging on by a thread. Your instinct is to protect, yet nothing you do seems to help. You feel alone and helpless. You're obsessing, hovering, and constantly questioning their state of mind. "What does she have to be depressed about?" "I don't understand; he has everything he needs." "Why would they do that?" You're expected to remain strong and contain your worst fears as you watch them unravel in self-defeat.

I enjoy working with anxiety, depression, stress, ADHD, trauma & loss, anger, and spiritual matters. We have an innate desire to be "happy" and our "capacity to heal". Each of us has internal "healer" that observes life, experiences living and cures our wound. When the "healer" is inspired and focused, we shift our attention to simple, organic living. We can believe and live in the endless possibilities of our dreams.

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 Valencia. 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.
