My primary focus is rooted in the belief that identifying strengths and resiliencies are key components to working effectively in the therapeutic format. We will stay focused on using these abilities to inform decision making while also exploring the impact of personal challenges. I like to use curiosity, intuition and empathic insight to continually deepen our therapeutic connection, and to offer homework to keep the work alive during the week. Working in this dynamic style ideally creates an increased sense of Self, motivation for change, and a reduction of current problematic symptoms.

Although I work with a variety of clients, my primary speciality is children who struggle with behavioral and/or emotional problems, using playful and positive means to help them with anger management, expression of feelings, and relationships with friends and family. I always welcome the opportunity to work with parents, families and couples under stress. Let's face it: aren't we all? No situation is beyond hope; my clients leave our sessions with real insight and tools with which to move beyond their troubling issues.

Dr. Embrey has practiced psychotherapy in Europe for 15 years and in California since 1990, emphasizing the possibilities of making life better. He has been educated in England and Sweden as well as his doctorate in California. Many choices in life are difficult. Trying to understand our choices, what motivates them and seeing clearly the patterns of our life is the start of choosing a new direction for ourselves or our relationships. I understand how to produce change. I work with individuals and couples mostly, with the utmost care, respect and consideration of situations we find ourselves in.

There are times in our lives when we all struggle with fear and pain of one kind or another. Contacting a therapist can be fear-provoking in and of itself. Whether we are struggling with acute trauma or simply feeling challenged by facets of everyday life, we all occasionally long for empathy and guidance. Loss, depression/anxiety, addiction, even normal life transitional issues can leave us feeling powerless, frightened and lonely. Often we hesitate to share these feelings with friends or loved ones for fear of being a burden or worse, being judged.

I believe that we all consist of “parts” - facets of ourselves that formed in response to life experiences, beliefs, and felt emotions. Here is the twist: the parts we resist and outlaw in ourselves seep through the cracks of our fragmented soul and manifest as undesirable behavior with unwanted outcomes. For this reason, we stay stuck and parts of us remain unfulfilled and unattended. These are your warrior parts that helped you survive throughout your life. They don’t want to be rejected or blamed. They don't need fixing. They want to be understood, accepted, and to ultimately belong.

What creates change? The evidence suggests that it’s primarily what happens in the rest of your life, outside of therapy, that creates change. Therapy, then, is an incubator to digest those changes or workshop strategies to initiate them. What works in therapy? Within our sessions, the primary driver of change is the fit between you and I. The rapport we build fosters your investment in, anticipation of, and tools for change. My theoretical background provides structure to our explorations — but it isn’t theory that will ‘fix’ you! The interventions which we create together will be the spark for transformation to happen.

People seek therapy for different reasons. Some are hoping for relief from a specific problem such as depression, anxiety or relationship difficulties. Others may have a general sense of not feeling as alive as they imagine they could. They would like help understanding this feeling and are seeking a richer, deeper, more fulfilling life. In psychotherapy we engage in a process of self discovery in which people learn about themselves and about the ways they have been blocked from feeling fully in touch with themselves and others in their lives.

Respect for individuals inner self-knowing and my desire to be with whatever problems or pain being faced, is what moves my clients forward. Not being alone in one's experience's is key to healing. If we are a good match, our connection invites my clients to appreciate that their anxiety, depression and relationship issues are merely the body and minds way of attempting to restore health. Nurturing the healthy parts creates greater acceptance and self trust for all aspects of oneself. The resultant comfort allows one to approach, what may have felt like ominous misguided symptoms, with compassion.
