As I enter tonight's journal entry I sit here thinking I'm not sure what happened to me. I don't feel the same anymore, not towards my spouse, not towards myself. I'm overwhelmed by the stressors of life, and they seemed to have taken over my spirit, energy and my relationships. I feel anxious, depressed, disconnected and most of all confused. I want to feel good again, I want the love of my life to see me again, I want to have confidence in myself, my marriage and most of all I want to live again. Many of us feel this way but don't express it to anyone. We begin to question is it even possible possible for any of this to change?

At certain times, life overwhelms all of us. Problems pile up and we feel frustrated and defeated. We may have held things inside for months, years or even decades. We come to a place of anxiety, depression, drugs and alcohol dependence, relationship conflict, or isolation. The ease and vitality of life that we once experienced seems too far removed. At the worst, we lose all perspective and feel hopeless. We don't want to feel this way anymore. It can be so hard to take that first step and reach out for help.

"I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become." ~ Carl Jung. Do you feel overwhelmed, have pain, grief, anxiety, depression, or unseen shadows that prevent you from healing or from choosing better decisions, relationships, and allowing yourself to matter in your own life? My experience and education can help people hungering for more purpose, fulfillment, and nurturing relationships instead of dissonance, exhaustion, and sacrifice, those who know what you were aiming for, but discovered you’re at the top of the wrong ladder. If you feel like you’re different or unseen, then I may be the psychotherapist you’ve sought.

**Accepting New Clients** Oftentimes people come to therapy after a difficult, painful or confusing experience to reduce symptoms of anxiety or depression or because they are lacking a sense of belonging, self-esteem, meaning, or purpose in life. In addition, distorted thinking patterns and beliefs can negatively influence mood and behavior. I believe all people have a natural tendency and potential for growth and wish to reach their full potential to become more fully themselves and alive. People wish to be heard, seen, and understood in a non judgmental way, improve their relationships and live authentic, meaningful lives.

It is common to feel overwhelmed when experiencing unwanted, difficult thoughts and feelings. This can happen when adjusting to life changes and when issues go unresolved. These aspects of being human are actually ways we are all connected. Building trust and open communication are essential for those looking for new ways to approach and transform suffering. Even when caught in destructive behavior and patterns, a person can safely, and at their own pace, find a way through and out of what is causing them pain. This is the hope I strive to create with my clients as they develop skills to problem solve, express, process, and cope.

I can help you navigate the process of exploring your identity and your place in a difficult world. You may be struggling with the many transitions that occur during your particular phase of life, especially if you are making sense of bad experiences or broken relationships from childhood. You might feel anxious, depressed, or angry, isolate yourself from others, or argue with family. Sometimes you might experience voices, visions, or beliefs that others think are strange. You are not alone in these experiences.

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 Ventura, 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 Ventura 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.
