"You smile and say, “I’m fine.” You’re seen as the one who has it together but inside, you're constantly over-thinking, over-analyzing, what-if-ing, and should-having. You exceed expectations while at the same time wondering if you are good enough. Impostor syndrome is like a shadow following you around. You’re a pro at turning any situation into a worst-case scenario. Guilt? Yep. You're no stranger to self-blame. Deep breaths take effort. In your relationships, you burst out in anger at those close to you. The aftermath leaves feelings of guilt and shame for not living up to the high expectations you have for yourself."

"As an EMDR therapist, I have experienced successful outcomes for those who suffer from trauma, anxiety, panic attacks, disturbing memories, post traumatic stress, obsessive thinking, and many other emotional conditions. In the past, with more traditional therapy, these conditions were time-consuming to treat. EMDR is considered a breakthrough therapy because of its simplicity and the fact that it can bring lasting relief for most types of emotional distress. Traumatic experiences can have an unsettling effect on our mental and emotional health for years to come."

"Psychotherapy is a journey of discovery. It is a walk toward the self. The purpose of psychotherapy is to assist the patient with knowing the Self: their intrinsic goodness, wisdom and strength found within. For women and couples, this requires a setting aside of assumptions about the self and others in order for curiosity to emerge. In psychotherapy, we explore what brings meaning to life and what creates value. We ask, “Do my actions bring me closer to the person I want to be?” As I assist the patient with shoring up coping skills we also explore the wondrous road back to the Self. "

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Pacific Palisades, 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 Pacific Palisades are able to work with a wide range of issues.

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