During a time of instability, some sort of consistency helps create a small sense of normal. Establishing a routine is essential, especially during a time of a Pandemic, when our ground has shifted, habits altered or broken. During a time that we are required for social distancing and isolation, we are also forced to slow down. We are provided the choice to find ways to connect and look within, to learn, to adapt and grow. I am providing Zoom confidential conferencing. If you are interested in doing Art Therapy (optional), then gather your art supplies!

Are you looking to overcome a substance use disorder or any kind of addictive behavior (e.g. food addiction). Do you feel like you have tried so many times to be sober but just can't understand why you keep relapsing? My approach to treating these disorders is holistic but also can work with the 12 step model. I look at what may be driving this behavior the "underlying core issues" rather than focusing on symptoms alone. I do not see clients who are actively using drugs or alcohol. I am able to counsel family members of addicts.

Being a human being is complicated. As humans, we require a witness to our life experience and emotions. It is my honor to be that witness for each of my clients. For an adolescence, it can provide a rare space where they can work through feeling, conflicts and develop more adaptive ways of being. Our lives are full of change, and it can be the source of stress. For adults too who are stuck or are struggling with feelings, life, and trauma a safe place offers comfort. Therapy can provide a space for curiosity, discovery, and creation. A place where meaning and authenticity can be found.

My ideal client is you. My goal of therapy is to meet the client exactly where they are at and collaborate on the clients’ needs and goals. I work with clients to look at their patterns and behaviors by making the unconscious conscious. So much of what a person is struggling with has to do with blind spots and unconsciously learning to live out of habitual maladaptive patterns. Addiction has been a huge part of my career in the addiction field. I look at addiction as an unhealthy and a lot of time detrimental coping mechanisms. I work with clients, no matter what their addiction or lack of addiction, to live a full and happy life.

I believe that we all have the resources within us to heal, and yet sometimes we need a little help. The right connection between a therapist/client can help start that healing. Maybe your teenager is sullen and isolated. Maybe you are in love and scared to be truly seen by another. Maybe there’s an angry side of you that your family doesn’t understand and a vulnerable side that is too scary to feel. Together we can work on acceptance, healthy coping skills, and letting go of bad habits. Without judgment, we will build an understanding of who you are as a person so as to realize your strengths and fortify them.

Family Systems therapists in Encino view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.
