"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."

"You hide it well. You dress the part. You focus on other people so they won't focus on you. You do well professionally and it distracts you from how deeply alone you feel. Often if seems easier to pretend that you're OK, but deep down... you hope for something more. I specialize in psychoanalytic psychotherapy with adults who struggle with shame, depression, suicidality, divorce, anger, anxiety, isolation, or estrangment from family members. I also specialize in working with friends and family members of narcissistic personalities."

"You may be experiencing an aching sense of sadness or fear because deep down inside, you feel that you aren’t good enough. You want to connect with others and engage fully in life but you second guess yourself at every turn. Maybe you learned to be critical of yourself from your parents; or, perhaps you never had space to be yourself because you had to take care of others, which left you feeling lost and unsure of yourself."

It is no wonder that changing long-standing patterns, even if we know how beneficial this change can be, presents a challenge. As a therapist, I help explore the origin and function of the rigid internal mechanisms that inhibit personal growth.

"I want to help people discover, think about, give meaning to, and find compassion for, alienated parts of themselves that are repressed and forbidden, containing unmet needs, historic conflicts, and unfulfilled dreams. Reunion with these parts can help people better understand their current behaviors, thoughts, and feelings and develop options for changing old patterns in their relationships with themselves, partners, and work that were once effective defenses against psychological pain. Therapy helps us become more fully alive, creative, connected to others, and free to be ourselves with less, and perhaps more realistic, fear-- individually, in our families, cultures, and society."

'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 90062), which affect multiple developmental basics. The specific developmental disorders include communication disorders, speech and language issues, such as stuttering or lisps in 90062; learning disorders; and motor function or motor skills disorders, which may include tics or Tourette's in 90062.

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 90062 or 90062 developmental issues. Try an 90062 child therapist, 90062 facility or 90062 treatment program. These therapists provide help with kids' developmental issues in 90062, child development, teen development and adolescent development. They include developmental therapists in 90062, developmental psychologists, developmental counseling and treatment for developmental disorders. They'll also help with problem teens development in 90062, teenagers development problems in 90062, 90062 teenage development and teenager developmental issues.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 90062 are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 90062 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 90062 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 90062 or family therapy in 90062.
