Clients may learn to discover and work with their own methods to support growth and awareness, through talking, spirituality, energy systems, breath work, mindfulness, and/or intuitive skills, so they can upgrade their innate ability to heal and thrive.
I teach simple mind and body self-care practices that can be used daily. I help people move from surviving to thriving. Words are not enough. In order to embrace radical change, the entire being needs to work as one. Using comprehensive practices, aspects of living that were once blocked are able to be cleared; then a more integrated consciousness can emerge. You return to your natural state. I am best suited for people who are on a path of personal growth, transpersonal awareness, health and wellness.

One thing we're guaranteed of in life is CHANGE. And quite often, change can be intensely emotional and very stressful. I am passionate about assisting people through transitions. Common transitions include marriage, divorce and other relationship endings, births and deaths, health issues, mid-life adjustments, career changes, parenting at different stages, even identity and self-esteem struggles. While transition has the ability to turn people's lives upside down, it needn't be that way. This is where therapy can be extremely helpful.

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.

My training/experience in attachment theory, family systems, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness practices support successful trauma-informed treatment to address family disruption/conflict, couples issues, young adults struggling to launch, dual-diagnosis complexities, adoption-related issues, addiction, divorce, grief/loss, and impact of Covid-19.
My clinical approach to healing is humanistic, client-centered, and attachment-focused. I facilitate connection through emotional attunement, curiosity, and empathy that is predicated on non-judgement through a strengths-based lens. The therapeutic alliance is co-constructed collaboratively with individuals/couples/families who wish to do meaningful reparative work around deep unresolved material that can keep a system "stuck" in a feedback loop of historical pattern replication that is no longer effective or has become unmanageable. Clinical focus excavates these maladaptive mechanisms to install and achieve growth-mindset goals.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in Westlake Village with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based therapists in Westlake Village can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Westlake Village MBCT therapists.
