Using family systems and psychodynamic therapy, we can work together to create positive change in how you connect to others, and how they relate to you.
I love working with teens, young adults, and anyone going through difficult transitions in their life. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, self-image or relationship issues, I am here to help. These are difficulties faced by most people at some point in their life, but no one has to do it alone. Together, we will identify and work toward your personal goals for a healthier, happier you.

I believe in providing a strength based approach to therapy, conceptualizing cases with a psychodynamic perspective and offering interventions from client centered and solution focused approaches.
***I am not able to accept new clients at this time as my caseload is full, but you can contact my group practice at info@theracarewellness.com to inquire about therapists*** I am most passionate about working with individuals who have survived traumatic experiences such as physical, emotional, and sexual trauma. This includes those needing to process intergenerational family trauma, survivors of trauma, and individuals struggling with eating disorders. I am an ardent ally of the LGBTQIA community and BIPOC communities, and enjoy working with women, non-binary, and gender fluid clients, or those questioning their gender identity.

My orientation combines both psychodynamic and cognitive based approaches.
My clients come from many walks of life but have one thing in common - they would like to improve their overall quality of life. Perhaps the wounds from their past or stressors from their present are adversely impacting their lives. My goal is to work collaboratively with my clients to improve their current level of functioning. My practice includes working with adults, college students, adolescents, couples, and families. I also co-lead groups with my husband who is also a psychotherapist, and I work with master's level and doctorate interns who are completing their therapy/supervison hours for licensing.

While I generally work from an in-depth, psychodynamic perspective, I also do CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) as needed.
While life can bring good experiences and satisfactions, it also can be difficult, even overwhelming. Unexpected and unintended experiences can cause pain, discouragement, uncertainty, anxiety, and more. These struggles can be personal, in your relationships, or in circumstances beyond your control, causing you to feel frustrated, confused about what's happening and what to do....maybe even trapped and desperate. I love working with individuals, couples and families to discover what is going wrong, and how to deal with it so you can move into the better life you need and want. This is my goal and desire for you.

Combining existential and psychodynamic approaches is controversial.
I mainly work with clients who are "psychologically minded" and interested in examining long-standing personality traits that may get in the way of having fulfilling personal and professional lives. Often my clients are therapists or aspiring therapists. I am an Emeritus Professor and a "Research Psychoanalyst." That means I have a PhD in Philosophy and have also trained in counseling and acquired a PsyD in Psychoanalysis. What I offer draws from this mix of backgrounds. I most like working with individuals (and couples and groups) who want to be challenged on both an intellectual and an emotional level.

I focus on providing a safe environment in order to help you speak freely, share your story, ask any questions, and face all issues that arise. I am open-minded, nonjudgemental, and eclectic in my approach. In beginning this inquiry, today you are one step closer to finding answers and solutions.

I work from a psychodynamic/depth perspective in dealing with both couples and individuals, and tailor treatment to individual needs.
I am a Marriage and Family Therapist and am also certified as a Psychoanalyst. I am thus trained on two fronts: both with difficulties inherent in couples relationships--including communication, anger, betrayal, and pre- and post-marital problems--and also with individual personal difficulties including depression, anxiety, fears, and addictions. Most emotional problems have their basis in current or past personal relationships. Good therapy involves a clear understanding and honoring of the many complex issues involved. I deeply respect the emotional struggles and the difficult decisions which bring many people to therapy.

I use the following therapeutic approaches: Internal Family Systems, Relational Cultural and Psychodynamic Theories, along with CBT and Mindfulness to help you identify problematic patterns and make meaningful change.
Change can be difficult, even with something you looked forward to such as going to college, having a baby, or starting a new job. Unanticipated or unwanted change can be especially difficult, like the loss of a loved one, a relationship ending, or watching your child or young adult struggle. My approach to therapy combines warmth and compassion with practical problem solving and coping strategies.

Are you finding that you and your significant other seem to fail at communication yet succeed in conflict with each other? Do arguments not get resolved and instead it's one issue after another? Do you feel tired and lost in your relationship? Trust and commitment alone are difficult things to cultivate, let alone building insight and effective communication. Whether you're wanting help early or this is the last ditch effort, bravo for your willingness and bravery for exploring your options. Also, if your past still affects your present, do you want to continue allowing those traumas to weigh heavy in your life?

Throughout our lives, we carry within us the voices, the gaze, acceptance or disapproval, the expectations, and the praise or criticism of those who have raised us and occupied our lives. Therapy can help us discover and clarify these powerful experiences and grow in our understanding of how they motivate us, giving us freedom to make more authentic decisions in our daily lives. I view therapy as an opportunity to heal, receive support, solve problems, improve relationships, and escape problems and patterns that seem to reappear over time.

We might try to hide our emotions from the people around us for fear that they won't understand. We might experience greater conflict in relationships and isolate ourselves as a result.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Brea, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
