My specialty is working with adolescents to adults. In my practice I integrate several therapeutic methods to achieve your goals... I am also a certified EMDR Therapist. EMDR is a highly effective treatment for people that need deep change, yet do not want to stay stuck with experiencing intense feelings of pain and shame. My client's have found that EMDR has also been a powerful aid in helping them breakthrough addictive feelings/behaviors ( depression, anxiety and behavioral addictions) that keep them in a negative and frustrated mental loop. We end the session with positive protocols that strengthen your objectives.

Do you need a little more support and structure in your life? I run a variety of high energy groups to help keep you on track, including "I Hate Weekends" (a Sunday support group for people who tend to isolate on the weekends), "You Can't Stop The Waves, But You Can Learn To Surf" (a cognitive therapy group for depression and anxiety), and "Back to Life, Back to Reality" (a life transition group).

I have worked in the mental health field since 2012, and have always had a curiosity for human development and how our experiences shape us into who we are today. I received my Master's in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy From Pepperdine Graduate School of Education and Psychology. I currently work predominantly with families, teens and children wanting to figure out why they feel "stuck” or how to help themselves overcome their anxiety, depression, familial issues, and other interpersonal challenges.

Does the distance between you feel unbearable at times? Perhaps you can't find the will or the courage to draw near your partner. Resentment and distrust may have widened the gap. Though reactive fights stand in the way of the tenderness you need, your heartfelt friendship could be just below the surface. Hoping it will get better, we wait to get help, while patterns reinforce distance and a negative view of each other. We become less willing to reveal ourselves or seek comfort and friendship from our most important person. You both really deserve your measure of happiness.

An act of transformation begins with the acknowledgement that you have begun to "outgrow" your current self and present circumstances. Change and transition can be daunting. But the transformation to your best self is profound, and typically life altering.

People tend to seek help when their lives feel out of balance. Sometimes this can be caused by a new or difficult situation, such as a shift in career plans, family life, or an intimate relationship that leads one to experience feelings of confusion and sadness. Other times we may not be sure where our depression or anxiety stem from at all. As humans, we possess a strong capacity for resilience and self-care, but it is when our regular coping strategies no longer work that we may turn to therapy for new perspectives and outcomes.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Encino, 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 Encino are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Encino. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Encino

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