Are you looking to overcome a substance use disorder or any kind of addictive behavior (e.g. food addiction). Do you feel like you have tried so many times to be sober but just can't understand why you keep relapsing? My approach to treating these disorders is holistic but also can work with the 12 step model. I look at what may be driving this behavior the "underlying core issues" rather than focusing on symptoms alone. I do not see clients who are actively using drugs or alcohol. I am able to counsel family members of addicts.

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.

Is your reality Instagram worthy? Do you find yourself falling victim to comparing your “real life” moments to others on social media? So many of us fall prisoner to the inner dialogue of our minds, that nagging voice that tells us repetitively, “I’m not good enough” or “I don’t belong here”. We have self-defeating conversations with ourselves so often that we hardly realize they’re happening. The things we say to ourselves have more power than we realize. Our inner voice can manifest incredible possibilities or sabotage us with negativity. The more you hear something, the more you’ll believe it.

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. Westlake Village 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 Westlake Village.
