I come from the world of Narrative Post Modern Psychotherapy and have a practical, down to earth style with direct, candid conversation to keep the therapeutic relationship responsive to your needs. I work together with clients when designing short and long treatment plans, according to the diverse needs of individuals, couples and families. Since I am also a certified yoga therapist I am able to combine elements of advanced breath work with tools from Cognitive Behavioral therapy. Using this evidence based combination is often highly effective.

Life is quite challenging right now. Children and adolescents have been out of school for almost a year and that has been really difficult on families. My practice focuses on helping children find a sense of balance and purpose. Making a transition from home to school might also be a challenge. Through talk therapy, expressive arts, and mindfulness, I work with children and teens to build an emotional language. Learning to express oneself is a gift for life. I work closely with the family and often have a family session to work on routines and discipline.

Let’s get one thing straight, therapy is not going to fix you. It’s not going to fix you because you aren't broken. You are in pain, confused, hurt, uncertain, and struggling. The problem is not WHO you are, it is the ways in which you experience and interpret the world around you. The goal in therapy is to reframe the pain points by identifying the problematic thought patterns that perpetuate pain. It is about taking the narrative and identifying the behaviors and thoughts that are working for you and the ones that aren’t.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Malibu 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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Malibu are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Malibu. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Malibu

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Malibu you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Malibu and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Malibu or family therapy in Malibu.
