(Psychodynamic, CBT) I find the clients contextual experience is a valuable component to their recovery, and I invite family therapy.
Sometimes we find ourselves seeking help and support when life hands us a path we aren't prepared to deal with. I believe that understanding and exploring the authentic self is essential in overcoming many complex struggles. I work to help uncover what my clients basic truth is, and in doing so work with anxiety, depression, adjustment issues, parenting, pregnancy, and family dynamics.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Malibu, 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.
