If you feel stuck in old patterns, it may seem impossible to free yourself. Today is the day. All you need to start the therapy process is the willingness to make that first contact. Each client's therapeutic journey is unique, and I very much enjoy acting as an empowering, knowledgeable guide along the way. I believe in the innate ability of my clients to transform themselves, their relationships, and their lives. Everyone encounters challenges whether it's depression, anxiety, loss, failed relationships, compulsions, or past traumas.

My therapeutic approach focuses very much on the here-and-now. While events in your past certainly played some role in your present distress, the past can not be changed. I believe the primary goal of psychotherapy is to teach you the tools you need to change the current patterns that are causing you problems. I also have special training and experience working with children and adolescents. While the techniques used with youths are obviously different from those used with adults, the goal remains the same: to provide the tools that will bring about positive change.

You knew parenting wasn’t going to be easy but you weren’t expecting consistent meltdowns over picking up toys or watching your child struggle with completing homework. You are tired of calls from the school and feeling like you don’t you have the tools to help your child. As a mother myself, I understand how this can impact your family day in and day out.

This is where the therapeutic process can help in alleviating your symptoms, bringing about new energy and happiness in enjoying life's many adventures. My enjoyment in the therapeutic process is one of discovery and collaboration in identifying difficulties and solutions to the patient's problems.

Oppositional Defiance Therapists
All children are oppositional from time to time. But their behavior can become incessantly and openly uncooperative such that it stands out relative to other children. Oppositional Defiant Disorder (or sometimes referred to as "ODD") tends to be evidenced by frequent temper tantrums, excessive arguing with adults, the questioning of rules, active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests. You may also see deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people, blaming of others, being touchy or easily annoyed by others, frequent anger and resentment, mean and hateful talking when upset, a spiteful attitude and revenge seeking.

These therapists can help with oppositional defiance in Irvine or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in Irvine, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in Irvine.
