"I combine a unique and specialized form of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) based on Choice Theory with a Family Systems approach to treatment. I view maladaptive behavioral patterns as a result of inadequate or dysfunctional life choices. I assist my clients in recognizing these patterns of behavior and encourage them to draw realistic and practical solutions to the things that are hindering growth and happiness through the choices they make in life. I work collaboratively with my clients using a "here and now" problem-solving technique and develop a treatment plan that uses psychotherapy, exercise, nutrition, and social support networks."

"Life demands so much from us on a daily basis. Our bosses want more of our time, our partners are slow to show love but quick to start an argument, and our families always seem to ask for more. Therapy is your space to escape from these demands, to take a breath and realign with who you truly are. I am passionate about helping clients illuminate ways they may enhance their relationships, embrace their true self, and gain the self-confidence needed to thrive in life. "

"Are you struggling to understand your withdrawn teenager? Is your child's rollercoaster mood affecting her academics and relationships? Is he engaging in risky behaviors? Have you tried to reach out only to be pushed away? Being an adolescent is difficult, and so is parenting one. Many times these difficult behaviors are hiding fear, hopelessness and confusion. Your teen may feel like no one understands her struggles as she develops a unique identity in an ever-changing society."

"Nothing feels right. Your body, your relationships, your job--they all feel so heavy, so frustrating, and out of your control . You wake up stressed before you even get out of bed. Sometimes you respond with anger, sometimes panic, sometimes you simply withdraw. Maybe you've imagined the way things are supposed to be, and wonder what you're doing wrong, or maybe you feel like circumstances, or other people are blocking you from your ideal life. Or perhaps you are so stressed that you can't even imagine a better life because it seems so unrealistic. What's the point?"

"Making the choice to come to therapy requires an incredible amount of courage. From the first interaction I hope to convey my deep respect for choosing to look at the parts of ourselves that are not working. Exploring what has you stuck can seem daunting and frustrating. My viewpoint of clients, is that they are strong, capable and willing to engage with themselves from a perspective of learning and growth. Therapy allows for us to heal in the context of a relationship, allowing for the creation of new narratives about our ability to trust, connect, and give and receive care."

Courageous stories that involve break ups, addiction, coming out, trauma, discrimination, HIV/AIDS, loss, and betrayal. People who come to me are brave storytellers. It is a privilege to hear a personal mythology that has never been shared before. Often people report feeling more alive when they share their personal narratives in our safe therapeutic space.

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 90029), which affect multiple developmental basics. The specific developmental disorders include communication disorders, speech and language issues, such as stuttering or lisps in 90029; learning disorders; and motor function or motor skills disorders, which may include tics or Tourette's in 90029.

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 90029 or 90029 developmental issues. Try an 90029 child therapist, 90029 facility or 90029 treatment program. These therapists provide help with kids' developmental issues in 90029, child development, teen development and adolescent development. They include developmental therapists in 90029, developmental psychologists, developmental counseling and treatment for developmental disorders. They'll also help with problem teens development in 90029, teenagers development problems in 90029, 90029 teenage development and teenager developmental issues.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 90029 are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 90029 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 90029 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 90029 or family therapy in 90029.
