I believe we are born with an inherent bodily wisdom, our "bones of knowing" which helps us to distinguish which experiences allow us to expand or cause us to shrink. We are born with basic primal emotional needs for love, safety and acceptance. For many of us these needs were not met. We often come out of childhood with unmourned losses and a false self or persona. Together we can explore those deeper needs which often underlie symptoms of anxiety, depression and stress and learn to fulfill these needs as they occur in the present, taking responsibility for our own happiness.

I also specialize in trauma, depression, anxiety, and life transitions.
In your journey to empowerment and better mental health I work to provide a safe environment, unconditional positive regard, and help cultivate the change you wish to achieve. We are all struggling to find balance and a new way of living with the current global pandemic. Many have experienced strong emotions, loneliness, and being burnt out. Therapy can be an outlet in which you talk about what you want to, express true feelings about something no one saw happening, and the impact it has had on not only your everyday life but also your mental health. I am here to be part of a support system for you during this time.

Life can be a challenge at times. If you feel discouraged, hopeless, anxious, sad and distressed you are not the only one. Sometimes it is hard to just wake up in the morning, trapped in a negative frame of mind. Past traumatic experiences hold us hostage with memories that interfere with our daily functioning. We want to feel good about ourselves, but we do not know how and what to do about it. We want better relationships. Our children and teenagers are facing difficulties with bullying, depression, anger, anxiety, and ability to focus.​ These issues affect their mental, physical and academic development. Therapy can help.

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 Van Nuys. 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.
