"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."

"Heal and Change Now. My unique methodology is based on traditional theory/psychotherapeutic interventions that get results. This kind of therapy isn't for everyone and I only work with those truly committed to this process because it requires the ability to learn, understand, and eventually take responsibility for how one got to their current state of struggling and feeling stuck by learning to recognize and get out of codependent relationships, how to set & follow-through with healthy boundaries, and other skills. Stop wasting time reading therapist profiles showcasing educational accomplishments & degrees and get the help you want and need."

Challenges with siblings, bedtimes, strong emotions, school, fill in the blank... Parenting can be the most stressful time, when it is touted as the most joyful. It is a fast track to getting your PhD in personal growth & development. I have been there. And, I can help. We can talk about those dirty, little secrets.

"A psychologist’s office ought to be–and I believe mine is–a safe place to express oneself, explore oneself, digest one’s experience and consider new and different modes of action. Digest experience? To me that means learning useful lessons that advance one’s life. Learning, however, in areas of emotion is different than learning arithmetic tables. Painful feelings often must be discharged before one can face how one contributed to the disaster, if one did, or who and what contributed to it. This can be a painful process at times, but a liberating and exciting one as well."

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

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