"I help individuals and couples improve the quality of their lives. I have been in private practice for over 30 years developing my craft. Sadly many people live far below their potential to experience love and happiness. The understanding that conditioning and unconscious training determine your perceptions and emotional reactions is the first step in the creation of new skills and emotional balance. My approach is a unique combination of cognitive restructuring and emotional integration leading to an improved awareness of possibilities both individually and in relationship. The ability to love and be loved is fundamental to a good life."

People often believe that they are more independent than they truly are on others, less connected and affected by the people in their lives. However, research shows the opposite. It also helps to learn about our emotions. Emotions often are automatic especially when anxiety and stress is high. My work looks at affective neuroscience which integrates the scientific research of brain function and emotions that drive behavior, focus and our relationships with others.""

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

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.
