"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."

"Individuals contact me because they are feeling joyless, depressed, hopeless or have unexplainable mood swings. Some are constantly worried, anxious, or panicked and may not know why, or how to calm themselves. Others struggle with chronic feelings of being inadequate or deficient and not feeling worthy of receiving positive recognition. Some are troubled by how over-reactive they can be to people, events or circumstances in their life. Others feel little control over their behavior whether it is outbursts of anger, compulsive sex, gambling, or substance abuse. And some have difficulty achieving and sustaining friendships or intimate relationships."

"Therapy can change your life. If you just take a little time and can find the strength to give it a shot, you will likely feel much better. Research shows, however, that progress depends specifically upon which therapist you choose. Perhaps you've heard complaints about LA therapists before--about the quality of psychotherapy received for the money spent. Well, the truth is: there are many mediocre, poorly-trained therapists in LA that can't really help you, who don't care enough, who charge very high fees. I promise to give you more: authentic, effective psychotherapy for less cost."

I work with families from pregnancy through early childhood onward, helping parents provide the secure base that children need on their developmental journey.

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

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 Santa Monica or Santa Monica developmental issues.
