There is no way to have predicted or to predict the impacts of COVID19 and the impacts of the social distance and social turmoil that has suddenly disrupted our futures, our relationships, our faith in our safety and, for many, the faith in our institutions to protect us. It would be incredibly naive or harmful to pretend like the disruptions to daily life and our entire planet have not caused us to re-evaluate and consider if we would like to make changes or if our children need support with social development as playgrounds were closed for more screens and video games as their only way to interact and develop socially.

I enjoy working with those of you who suffer (often silently) from emotional pain by guiding you through that pain whether it be from the past or present.  In order to untangle, express and feel a lifetime of traumas, specific life events, or every day sadnesses and anger, my specialty is providing a safe atmosphere in which you can explore those corners of your life you have had to keep hidden or have been unsuccessful in healing.

Being multicultural can feel as though you are playing a constant game of tug-of-war, being thrown every direction, all the while never landing in a safe space where you fully “belong.” Feeling chronically unseen and unheard has consequences. We endlessly strive for acceptance through people-pleasing and questioning our worth, leaving us disconnected – blind to our deepest selves. My approach is built upon the idea that we are always “enough," and that we can cultivate belonging by giving our unacknowledged struggles a voice. By daring to embody what that coveted landing space looks like, we can own the self we present to the world.

My ideal client is one who is willing to self-examine. I appreciate flexibility, creativity and intelligence. I am best suited to depth work: addressing unresolved underlying issues that continue to impact daily living. I also appreciate differences and I have a deep regard for diversity and the challenges therein. I focus on helping a person identify their inherent strengths and build upon those. I work well with adolescents and young adults probably due to my "down to earth" approach. I am trained in EMDR and EFT as treatment modalities. I am well versed in 12 step support and use the Medicine Wheel paradigm in my work.

Change is inevitable, but what it “does to us” is another story. We are in the midst of so much change right now as a collective. There are so many uncertainties, losses, and experiences that are hard to understand. And yet this is life. Here we are. What is to be done? I don’t think change can be avoided. Change is one of those crucibles in life that can either make us shrink and be afraid, or expand us into newer versions of ourselves— ones that are strong in our resilience, clear in who we are and what matters, and built to surf a world that is uncertain and in flux.

Life is truly uncertain, yet the current pandemic has highlighted and intensified this experience for many of us. COVID-19 is changing how we look at and experience life, work and relationships, thus creating new thoughts and feelings about our lives. Whether you are encountering anxiety, depression, addiction, relationship issues and/or other possibly debilitating physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual obstacles they can be worked with during this time of uncertainty. Additionally, with over 15 years of experience in various healthcare settings I work with burnout, compassion fatigue, moral distress and other stressors.

You wonder what was wrong with you, why did things end this way, and if the universe working against you because people in your life seem unreliable, manipulative, and inconsistent.

I believe therapy is a collaborative effort and each individual is an expert on their personal experiences and goals. I seek to explore and build from each client's personal strengths to find viable solutions, enhance coping skills, and nurture the path to positive change. I believe no one is truly alone, and that feelings of loneliness can be very real and overwhelming. There is strength in reaching out for help. I seek to provide an empathetic environment of self-discovery and change.

My clinical approach to healing is humanistic, client-centered, and attachment-focused. I facilitate connection through emotional attunement, curiosity, and empathy that is predicated on non-judgement through a strengths-based lens. The therapeutic alliance is co-constructed collaboratively with individuals/couples/families who wish to do meaningful reparative work around deep unresolved material that can keep a system "stuck" in a feedback loop of historical pattern replication that is no longer effective or has become unmanageable. Clinical focus excavates these maladaptive mechanisms to install and achieve growth-mindset goals.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Ventura, 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.
