It takes real courage to stop pretending you have it all together and shake hands with deep sadness or childhood trauma. I believe many emotions serve as flags indicating an opportunity for us to learn and gain more understanding about ourselves. Whether you are dealing with disappointment, sorrow, conflict, resentment, depression or anxiety, exploration of these tender spots can be a path to growth and change. Therapy can provide a meaningful relational setting where your unique experience and feelings can be expressed and understood, thereby increasing your ability to face life's inevitable challenges.

The decision to seek therapy can be one of the most important steps we take on the path to emotional wellness. It's also a decision that often comes about after a great deal of contemplation and reflection. I believe this path can ultimately lead to a more enriched and authentic life, as well as a new found inner truth and self-awareness. By addressing core issues that we often overlook, we can open the door for improvement not only within ourselves but also in our relationships with others.

When we seek therapy it is usually because we reach a point when our problems and challenges outweigh our ability to cope with them. Sometimes we feel stuck in old patterns of behavior or relationships that no longer work for us and we wish to make changes. I serve as a collaborator with you on your journey of self discovery as you find new ways of being and making more appropriate life choices. I provide safety and support as you experience psychological understanding and growth and remain with you as you develop ways to handle life's burdens in more empowering ways.

Are you having a tough time with someone you love or are close with? Are you a parent struggling with your child? Do you ever feel uncontrollably anxious or depressed? Do you want to quell your OCD rituals or tame your anger? You're not alone, nor do you have to solve your problem on your own. In fact, neuroscience has shown you really can't. Our brains are hardwired to connect -- within themselves and between individuals. By developing new self-regulation and self-improvement strategies, we literally rewire our brains, intentionally creating new neural pathways.

You and your partner sit silently on the sofa. The TV is on, & you're both looking at your phones. Though in the same room, you might as well be a world apart. You're feeling neglected, unappreciated, & lonely. There's little affection between you these days. You try to focus on all the positives in your life, but your unhappiness is becoming the elephant in the room - harder and harder to ignore. You long to feel desired, appreciated, & a priority in your partner's life. You're afraid to talk to your partner about your true feelings as conversations are often misunderstood or full of conflict. You don't know where to turn.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Westlake Village using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
