My practice focuses on psychological evaluations for children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. Some reasons folks seek my help is to assess for autism, intellectual deficits, learning disorders, ADHD, as well as to address possible depression/anxiety that often accompany these conditions. In some cases, I am asked to perform testing to inform the efficacy of ADHD/ADD medication through the use of continuous performance testing. My approach is to learn about the whole person rather than rely on tests alone to produce an evaluation best suited to your needs.

I believe many painful disorders such as depression and anxiety are rooted in unresolved relationship stress and disconnect. While this pain may have originated in a client's early childhood it is most definitely resurfacing in the client's present relationships. With my expertise, clients will recognize distorted perceptions and unhealthy relationship patterns that are keeping them stuck. They will begin to own their part in the relationship dynamic which can be highly empowering. Also, learning more effective relationship skills with the important people in their lives will enable clients to begin to experience relief from their painful clinical conditions.

Through play and music therapy, we can devise plans, which help one find their calm, and recognize worn patterns, allowing one to initiate positive change. Play and music therapy works whether you are young, transitional age, or a mature adult finding your way through changes in life. Music therapy has positive impacts reconnecting our mind, and emotions to our body through the discovery of underlying patterns and deeper psychology. These patterns sometimes cause negativity or depressive behaviors. Individuals who become aware of these patterns are better able to free their self from well-worn paths no longer serving positive ways.

Are you less than satisfied with who you've become and the life you're living? Many of us struggle with acceptance and love for our bodies and are unsure how to make peace with ourselves and plot a positive path forward. I believe therapy is a collaboration where I meet you wherever you are and we become partners on the path toward your best self. Because mental and emotional distress happens in relationship, we begin with the most important relationship you will ever have – the one with yourself. The way in which we treat ourselves directly correlates with how we show up in the world and connect with others.

Healthy relationships are my goal and my mission. I'm especially passionate about working with couples, both premarital and marital. I achieve this best through a program called "Ultimate Integrity." Most of my couples say that a lack of integrity is a major problem in their relationships and this (UI) program can be very helpful to heal the wounds of lies and deceit and replace with truth and love. Many couples also struggle with stress, depression, anxiety, and addictions. I'm very proactive to identify effective strategies and coping skills to resolve these concerns.

Life is a continuing journey of growth and change. How we handle that growth and change will determine how successful we are in navigating relationships, careers, personal development, and obstacles that we come across in our daily lives. Oftentimes it is difficult to process everything going on in life when you're at the center of it, even when things are going well! Therapy is a resource to help process everything that make us who we are, the good and bad: depression, anxiety, self-confidence, trauma, identity discovery, toxic relationships, aimlessness, conflict with peers/family, career development, loss/grief, and much more.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in 93003, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in 93003 listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
