"Psychotherapy is essentially a collaborative process where the feedback between the therapist and the person is without any sense of judgement or agenda.Therapy is about what works from the perspective of each person's unique personal experience. It allows for a fluid perspective to be understood and worked through. I am an active participant, providing descriptions along with mutually agreed upon insights and interpretations. I believe that the essential process within oneself and in a therapeutic setting should always contain compassion, understanding, respect and empathy. The goal is to develop a positive relationship with oneself and with others."

"I am extremely passionate about empowering individuals, couples and families to heal and live their best, most authentic lives. I strongly believe that each and every individual, regardless of background, ability, or beliefs, should have a safe space where they can feel comfortable being their true self. I know that sitting across from someone with similar experiences can help to build trust and promote connection, and am therefore deeply committed to holding space for women and people of color."

"If you are dealing with the effects of trauma, anxiety, or depression, sometimes having someone that understands you can get you through the toughest times. We've all found ourselves standing on a road we didn't plan, wondering how we got to where we are. I'm here to support, see, and know you. You can heal emotional wounds by creatively exploring and understanding your thoughts and experiences as well as generations of dynamics and trauma. Together we can fortify your strengths, cultivate a centered approach to life, and find acceptance and wholeness."

"While compassion is the cornerstone of my practice, I will also challenge you in more direct ways. Through the process of psychotherapy we come to know ourselves in a meaningful way. This self-insight can lead to purpose, aliveness, and more settled, enriching relationships. I provide both individual psychotherapy and couples counseling / marital therapy. In addition to working in private practice, I am also the founder/director of Silver Lake Psychotherapy, a therapy practice which offers high quality psychotherapy and psychiatry/medication management services on the eastside of Los Angeles."

"Life hits all of us with the unexpected – sometimes delightful, sometimes the polar opposite. Depression, anxiety, relationship problems, grief and loss are all part of being human. I'm fortunate to have excellent training and experience supporting people through change, crisis and opportunity. Some of my clients have suffered tsunami size losses - a cancer diagnosis, the loss of a loved one through death, betrayal, a divorce/breakup, a big move or just “life.” A desired gain, like a new baby, means the loss of a childfree lifestyle. Change and uncertainty are givens, but we can change how we interpret and relate to what is."

"Therapy is about exploring, experimenting, discovering, and being vulnerable. In our therapy together you will learn to increase self-compassion and mindfulness, and your ability to sit with uncertainty and bear witness to uncomfortable feelings and body sensations. You will gain awareness of the role negative core beliefs and thoughts have upon mood, and learn how to challenge those negative thought patterns. You will learn to set appropriate boundaries by asserting feelings, recognizing wants and needs, and identifying the role shame and guilt might play in causing unhealthy, harmful, stale and inauthentic behaviors."

"Part of our work together will center around separating who you think you "should" be from who you actually are. We will collaborate to cultivate an integrated acceptance of self, promoting a rich landscape for change to occur. Our society prioritizes individualism and fleeting connection over deeply intimate relationships. Together we will consider ways to cultivate more meaningful connections that inspire vulnerability and intimacy, and build greater awareness around fears and conflicts hindering your ability to do so. We will clearly identify your needs and further develop the skills needed to communicate them to others."

"I believe that each of our lives is an ecosystem, comprised of the interconnecting forces that influence our well-being. This includes our relationships with other people, with cultural and economic forces and even our own bodies. When we are out of balance or suffer trauma, we are often left feeling anxious, depressed or lost. Could you use an ally in making the "ecosystem" of your life more healthy and vibrant?

We want to feel a sense purpose and feel good enough as we are, and yet so many of us struggle to feel these ways. Sometimes our lives look very different than we imagined and we need help making sense out of things. We might be feeling disconnected or numb, uncertain or alone. We might be questioning the direction we are heading and need to find some clarity or hope. Self compassion and radical self-acceptance are cornerstones of my work.

Developmental Disorders Therapists
'Developmental disorder' is the collective term used to describe the disorders, first diagnosed in a child's infancy or early childhood, which then become more apparent as the kids develop during their childhood and into their teens and adolescence. Like all labels, it means little and is open to interpretation.

The developmental disorders are categorized in to two areas: specific developmental disorders, which affect discrete parts of a kid's development, and the pervasive disorders (e.g. PDD 90026), which affect multiple developmental basics. The specific developmental disorders include communication disorders, speech and language issues, such as stuttering or lisps in 90026; learning disorders; and motor function or motor skills disorders, which may include tics or Tourette's in 90026.

The pervasive developmental disorders (PDDs) include autism, asperger's, attention-deficit and disruptive behavior disorders.

There are other issues that can affect childhood development, which are included in the developmental disorders--such as feeding and eating disorders, elimination disorders, separation anxiety disorder, and reactive attachment disorder.

Look here for help with children, kids or teens with developmental disorders in 90026 or 90026 developmental issues. Try an 90026 child therapist, 90026 facility or 90026 treatment program.
