I use Psychodynamic Therapy & Emotion Focused Therapy to get at the habituated ways of relating to and thinking about one's problems and relationship difficulties.
I do individual and couples therapy dealing with: addictions; defensive communication; sexuality; aggression; parenting, and money. *I find that most couples during arguments or stressful times, communicate poorly--are reactive and quick to blame. I really value helping the individuals develop themselves and their skills as a way out of this cycle, and towards a loving relationship. *In individual therapy we may deal with loneliness, anxiety, addictive patterns/substances or depression. We work together to set personal goals and on staying accountable. I focus on their maladaptive thoughts/feelings that can interfere with them retaking charge of their life.

It’s already hard enough to sit in feelings of uncertainty, hurt, or frustration. It’s even more difficult to accept vulnerability and reach out for support when we tend to fear judgement. Therapy has been portrayed as a stigma towards mental illness, but there’s more to the therapeutic process than just “treating an illness”. I am here to process emotions and thoughts with you while giving you alternative perspectives to reflect on. Processing released emotions allow relief which then provides me the opportunity to guide my clients in adopting and utilizing new tools and skills towards recovery.

Your family deserves support. Challenges that arise in childhood can impact one’s mood, how one copes with stress, and identity formation. Similar issues can arise for parents who may be experiencing this role for the first time, impacting one’s ability to bond with their children. Early intervention can support children as young as infancy to promote healthy functioning into adulthood as well as support parents who may be experiencing difficult feelings related to their own history.

I believe we are born with an inherent bodily wisdom, our "bones of knowing" which helps us to distinguish which experiences allow us to expand or cause us to shrink. We are born with basic primal emotional needs for love, safety and acceptance. For many of us these needs were not met. We often come out of childhood with unmourned losses and a false self or persona. Together we can explore those deeper needs which often underlie symptoms of anxiety, depression and stress and learn to fulfill these needs as they occur in the present, taking responsibility for our own happiness.

I believe childhood experiences create the template for adult life. Early losses, separations and trauma define the choices of strategies or defenses we use as adults. Pain and suffering can be caused by these early experiences. It is my job as a therapist to join my clients in their journey of discovery of these templates and help them to gain a more fulfilled life. I provide individual, couples and family counseling services in both English and Spanish in a safe, comfortable environment. My approach is tailored to each client, to meet them on their journey of discovery to finding a more fulfilled life.

Perhaps the essence of all your mental and emotional pain resides in the inability to love yourself. Thus, it's essential to identify and uncover all the barriers that stand in your way. At any given moment, you have the option of stepping forward into something new and unfamiliar or backward into the reassurance of familiarity. My role is to foster in you the risk to grow while honoring the courage to forfeit safety.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Van Nuys, 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.
