The psyche strives to maintain a balance between opposing qualities while at the same time actively seeking its own development or as C.G. Jung called it, individuation. My goal is to help you reach a balance in life, to help identify symptoms. You may be struggling with Insomnia, depression, anxiety, loss, or negative patterns impacting daily life. My goal is to find purpose within yourself by seeing symptoms as symbols of deeper meaning. Within a safe therapeutic container of non-judgement, narrative therapy, dreams, creativity, and direction we can increase your awareness of desires, fears, patterns, and strengths together.

Whether you are looking for support in personal development, intimate relationships, attachment repair, trauma healing, or symptom reduction (anxiety and/or depression), it is my privilege to accompany you on your journey of self-discovery.
In my practice, I use a holistic approach when working with individual adults and couples. I can help you learn new ways to navigate your relationships and emotions so that you may live a more balanced and fulfilling life. Somatic therapy is especially powerful because it encourages tuning in to body sensations in addition to cognitive processes. This practice allows for the integration of the hidden parts of ourselves in order to become more whole.

Having someone on our side who can offer compassion and understanding supporting us to express, laugh, cry, and cheer us on can help to further uncover and build on the innate strengths and ability within each of us to ride the wave.

I believe that every individual is unique, therefore, no single type of therapy will be effective for everyone. That is why I evaluate each person's specific needs and personality before selecting the most appropriate form of treatment. This approach is called Prescriptive Eclectic Therapy and it draws on theories and techniques from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Self Psychology, Gestalt Therapy, Hypnotherapy and many others. This therapy can be brief or long-term, depending on your specific needs and goals. However, in many cases, therapy can be effective in just a few months.

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 Ventura. 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.
