I vividly remember the first time I used this website to seek out a therapist. I was filled with despair, intense fear, shame and insecurity but had no consciousness into these emotions. I was so disconnected from my body and my spirit. My thoughts were racing and I was stuck in patterns of self-sabotage and harmful coping mechanisms. It took everything out of me to make eye contact with another person as I began to speak about this. I will never forget the compassion I experienced from my first therapist as she held sacred space for me to begin this process. I strive to embody the same deep compassion for each therapy client I see.

Life is a continuing journey of growth and change. How we handle that growth and change will determine how successful we are in navigating relationships, careers, personal development, and obstacles that we come across in our daily lives. Oftentimes it is difficult to process everything going on in life when you're at the center of it, even when things are going well! Therapy is a resource to help process everything that make us who we are, the good and bad: depression, anxiety, self-confidence, trauma, identity discovery, toxic relationships, aimlessness, conflict with peers/family, career development, loss/grief, and much more.

My practice focuses on psychological evaluations for children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. Some reasons folks seek my help is to assess for autism, intellectual deficits, learning disorders, ADHD, as well as to address possible depression/anxiety that often accompany these conditions. In some cases, I am asked to perform testing to inform the efficacy of ADHD/ADD medication through the use of continuous performance testing. My approach is to learn about the whole person rather than rely on tests alone to produce an evaluation best suited to your needs.

AVAILABLE TO DO REMOTE SESSIONS DURING COVID-19 HEALTH CRISIS. With life and relationships comes vulnerability, and too often, pain and feelings of betrayal. These experiences can become defining factors in our relationships with ourselves and others moving forward, when not processed in a caring, self-compassionate way. Experiences of hurt, or even trauma, can leave us feeling small, lonely, and often with feelings of secrecy or shame. I work collaboratively with each client to help them unlock old patterns or experiences of pain to find more awareness about what is holding them back in their lives, and to move forward fully.

Self-Harming Therapists
Self-harm (SH) or deliberate self-harm (DSH) is the deliberate infliction of damage to your own body. It includes cutting, burning, scratching, banging or hitting yourself, interfering with wound healing, and the ingestion of toxic substances or objects. While self injury (SI) can look like suicide, it's not; most people who mutilate themselves do it as a way to regulate mood. People who hurt themselves in this way may be motivated by a need to distract themselves from inner turmoil, or to quickly release anxiety that builds due to an inability to express intense emotions.

If you're looking for help with self-harming in Ventura or for someone who self harms, or cuts themselves, or bangs or hits themselves, these Ventura therapists provide counseling for self harming in Ventura. They include therapists, who understand self harming in Ventura, psychologists and counselors. They can provide self harming counseling in Ventura or treatment for self harming.
