Trauma, grief and loss issues compromise the bulk of my client caseload. I find that adults can hold the impact of childhood trauma for years before seeking psychotherapy and often mask their pain with anxiety, depression or compulsive behaviors. My experience is that getting to the hidden pain and strengths that each client carries through his or her daily lives and relationships are the core of healing. There are no quick fixes, but exploring ways to accent life skills, improve self-respect and relationships are keys to building more wholeness in each person's heart, mind, body and spirit. Especially now.

Do you continue to feel stuck no matter where you turn? Are you craving for a sense of relief in your life? Sometimes we don't recognize the underlying reasons for our experiences. Each individual has their own way of coping through their day to day life. I understand the first step towards the healing process is support. We heal better when we know we don’t have to walk through hardships alone.

Does the distance between you feel unbearable at times? Perhaps you can't find the will or the courage to draw near your partner. Resentment and distrust may have widened the gap. Though reactive fights stand in the way of the tenderness you need, your heartfelt friendship could be just below the surface. Hoping it will get better, we wait to get help, while patterns reinforce distance and a negative view of each other. We become less willing to reveal ourselves or seek comfort and friendship from our most important person. You both really deserve your measure of happiness.

Creating a safe, caring, non-judgmental environment in which to engage in a deep, authentic healing process is my intention. Anxiety, depression, and other painful issues, often have their roots in developmental wounding and/or trauma. I help you get to the causes of your pain and patterns that no longer serve you. Mindfulness and somatic resourcing allow you to experience relief (and rewire your brain) while safely navigating and processing the past. I specialize in anxiety, trauma, PTSD, relationships, career, self-esteem, and auto-immune, pain and other somatic challenges. I offer individual, couples therapy, groups, workshops, and retreats.

In my experience, one style of therapy does not fit every person or every challenge.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
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 Encino, 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 Encino 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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Encino are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Encino

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Encino you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Encino and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Encino or family therapy in Encino.
