I know that choosing to enter therapy is a difficult decision. Sometimes it's the result of painful life events. Other times it arises out of a growing sense of unhappiness individually or in a relationship. Whatever the cause, I am committed to making your first steps as comfortable as possible because your ability to be yourself is essential to the process. So that you know to expect, the process begins by setting up an initial appointment. There we'll discuss what brings you to therapy. Together we'll discern if we have the possibility of a good therapeutic relationship.

When life feels harder than it should, there's always a reason. Difficult events, whether past or present, can make daily life difficult. If you feel like you're doing more surviving than thriving, I'm here to help. I work from a trauma model, which looks at the impact of events on the way we think, feel, and act in the present. Abuse, lack of nurture, or catastrophic events can significantly impact normal functioning. Life gets better, and I work hard everyday to move people toward hope and healing.

My passion is to help those who feel weary and lost. It is difficult to be present and live a fulfilling life when the chains of past events hold us back. As hard as we run and distract ourselves, we also run away from our sense of self. Avoiding pain can grow into unhealthy behaviors and addiction. My intention is to help build a foundation for a meaningful life. Core pieces of the foundation include insight, communication, emotions, and connection. These pieces are vital to maintaining healthy relationships and attaining the love we want. Other important areas to consider are cultural identity, spirituality, and our past.

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

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