I specialize in working with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. I use an unique approach that is both psychodynamic (Jungian) and/or solution focused. My goal is increased satisfaction with your life, your relationships, and yourself. I am interested in your inner and outer life. I consider your situation, your thoughts and personal perspecitives, your family experiences, and psychological dynamics in finding ways to relieve your symptoms and address the causes. I am insight, awareness, and cognitive-behaviorally oriented whether the issues are emotional, relational or situational.
Therapy is a collaborative process and includes feedback and coaching for increasing self awareness and insight. I am an active, participatory therapist focused on your growth and healing. You will be developing a new relationship with yourself, others, and your relationship with life. This can be very meaningful and deeply satisfying.
I am committed to my own growth and development, and continue to upgrade my skills and knowledge. I engage in continuing Jungian education and depth psychology including dreamwork, which I love. I have over 25 years experience and will always be learning. My website is www.malibu-therapy.com. to learn more. I also work remotely via FaceTime and Zoom.
