I typically work with clients who feel like they don't fit in. With not fitting in comes anxiety and depression that can become overwhelming and exhausting. It can be difficult to show your true, authentic self if you do not feel safe in your own skin. I work to create a safe, judgement free environment for you to grow and feel comfortable to be who you are in a healthy way. The purpose of therapy isn't to change you, but to help build on your strengths and break through the negative self-talk and harmful self-judgment. I provide telehealth and walk and talk therapy in addition to my office setting (1 day per week due to COVID).

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 Newport Beach or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in Newport Beach, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in Newport Beach.
