Looking for more joy and meaning in life? Using an eclectic approach, I work with adults and young adults to discover their natural strengths. Part of being human includes being confronted with obstacles that hinder our wellbeing and meaning in life. I enjoy assisting people in creating ways to remove those obstacles. Even in the midst of little hope, I think we all need to be reminded of the joy and wonder in life.

I've found EMDR therapy to be effective and efficient in helping people who are wanting to let go of heaviness and fatigue related to intrusive or self limiting thoughts, often brought on by disturbing childhood events. For couples, I've found the John Gottman, Phd Marriage Institute material in giving couples the insight and tools the need to to get them "unstuck". With children age 2-7 years of age, I've found that they can "play out" their inner conflicts through Non-directive Play Therapy and find new levels of self-awareness, self acceptance and self control.

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 San Luis Obispo or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in San Luis Obispo, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in San Luis Obispo.
