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.

The clients I see in my practice range in age from 11-80. While each individual has their own story, there are common threads that seem to run through all of us. These threads include loneliness/isolation, anxiety about the future, addiction, the aftermath of heartbreak/loss, work/money stress, longing to understand one’s past, even worry over the ever-changing state of the world. These and other issues, while painful and often confusing, are actually the materials that create change and growth. This is the therapeutic process.

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.

Caring for someone with Alzheimer's or dementia can be overwhelming. It is estimated that 40-70% of caregivers suffer from depression and burnout. Emotional and physical challenges can overwhelm even the most capable, leaving them with the inability to care for themselves, their careers, relationships and other things that matter to them. Caregiving is a chronic stress, and I can help. Many people come in looking for help when they feel that their resources and resilience have been obscured by the magnitude of their problems, I will work collaboratively with you to help to re discover a story of possibility and hope.

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. Malibu Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in Malibu.

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
