"In our contemporary society it is easy to be content and even glad for medications that soothe symptoms, but healing comes from working through our underlying inner conflicts in a textured human relationship in which we can feel what we truly feel and become who we truly are. I believe distressful symptoms, whether depression, anxiety, anger, hurt, a sense of meaninglessness, a sense of emptiness, addictions, or behavior problems are signs. They are signs that it is time to grow our mindfulness of our underlying needs, feelings, and thereby gain choices for living more contently within our communities and families."

"Most of my work as a therapist has been with children, adults and couples. I am trained in different modalities, but work mainly within a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy model. Not only has empirical research proven the efficacy of this model, but I also have personally seen clients thriving because of it. For those who are interested in revealing their unconscious content and perhaps understanding how repressed earlier emotions and experiences affect current decision-making, behavior, and relationships, I also have a passion for psychodynamic/analytic work.

"Are you from a family of divorce or conflict and now find yourself struggling in relationships? Perhaps you are overly picky, push others away, or stay in unhappy relationships for too long. Maybe you are in a good relationship but taking the next step feels anxiety provoking and overwhelming. You may find yourself constantly wondering how anyone can be sure they've found the "right" person. You may also find that you second guess yourself and worry about making the "wrong" choices in other areas of your life, too."

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.
