Does your life from the outside look amazing, yet you feel lonely, directionless, anxious, depressed, or lost? You live in a beautiful place, have a gorgeous home, great trips, lots of friends, and many social and charitable activities to keep you busy, yet your relationships and your life seem distant and disconnected. Does your partner work too much? Are your children too busy? If you don't have children are you struggling with infertility? Or maybe you are struggling with your health? Don't worry - there is hope! I have seen this condition before and can help.

If you're suffering from depression, traumatic memories, anxiety, or OCD, Image Transformation Therapy (ImTT) can restore your effectiveness in the world and the balance in your life. I developed ImTT while working at Camp Pendleton Marine Base because I needed a treatment that could release the most intense pain, terror, and memories without the person having to experience the feelings or relive the memories. The result is that ImTT treatment enables a person to live without self-consciousness and fear -- spending more of their life in the "creative zone."

We all have suffering in our lives-- it's part of human experience. Too often, however, there is a layer of unnecessary psychological pain caused by unconscious defenses. We often resist painful feelings and the realities they point to. When we get stuck in our resistance we get emotionally sick and our suffering increases. I work together with patients to honestly and compassionately untangle, face, and accept the truths they've tended avoid on their own.

Greetings! In searching for a therapist you seek someone who is capable of listening to you and truly hearing. It is essential that your therapist is able to understand your 'starting point' in order to help you pursue your personal and relationship objectives. It is my honor to assist you. In my profession it is rare to find a therapist who has remained in face-to-face counseling for the duration of his/her career. With gratitude I can say God has blessed me as a counselor bringing help to many hurting and dismayed individuals, couples and families.

My clients are individuals who often carry with them unresolved feelings from either their past or present challenges. Viewing those issues from an objective and trusted practitioner is vital to the change process. Always viewing my clients with unconditional positive regard is essential to us being successful. Therapy can often be the first time someone gets to step out of the day to day of their lives. My hope is during this introspection, I can coach you in the direction you need to go, not where my training thinks you should go. While I may illuminate potential paths, you're taking the steps with me right behind you!

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Encinitas, 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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Encinitas are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Encinitas

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Encinitas you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Encinitas and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Encinitas or family therapy in Encinitas.
