I come from the world of Narrative Post Modern Psychotherapy and have a practical, down to earth style with direct, candid conversation to keep the therapeutic relationship responsive to your needs. I work together with clients when designing short and long treatment plans, according to the diverse needs of individuals, couples and families. Since I am also a certified yoga therapist I am able to combine elements of advanced breath work with tools from Cognitive Behavioral therapy. Using this evidence based combination is often highly effective.

The clients I see in my practice range in age from 11-80. While each individual has their own story, there are common threads that seem to run through all of us. These threads include loneliness/isolation, anxiety about the future, addiction, the aftermath of heartbreak/loss, work/money stress, longing to understand one’s past, even worry over the ever-changing state of the world. These and other issues, while painful and often confusing, are actually the materials that create change and growth. This is the therapeutic process.

Every couple is different, every couple is complicated, and every couple has trouble talking about one or more key issues. In your first session I will quickly assess what isn't working in your relationship and build a plan to eliminate the problem. I will help facilitate effective communication, make sure the sessions are emotionally safe, and teach practical methods for getting your thoughts and feelings across. My job is not to figure out who is right and who is wrong, my job is to help. ​I tend to work with couples each week for 8-12 weeks.

Let’s get one thing straight, therapy is not going to fix you. It’s not going to fix you because you aren't broken. You are in pain, confused, hurt, uncertain, and struggling. The problem is not WHO you are, it is the ways in which you experience and interpret the world around you. The goal in therapy is to reframe the pain points by identifying the problematic thought patterns that perpetuate pain. It is about taking the narrative and identifying the behaviors and thoughts that are working for you and the ones that aren’t.

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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Malibu are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Malibu. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Malibu

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