I am also influenced by somatic theory, as well as psychodynamic theory of how our emotional patterns develop and can foster or hinder healthy life choices, good relationships, and expressing sexuality.
I love working with people who are sensitive, imaginative, and ready for deep work. If you are feeling stuck, unable to reach your potential, or are dealing with a difficult life change I would love to work with you. You might be looking for help to recover from a personal or romantic relationship with a borderline or narcissistic personality, struggling with unhealthy relationship patterns, or just looking for relief from the pain of your past. I'll be a kind listener who can gently nudge you to get to the root of what is keeping you stuck. And with more self-awareness and support you'll find the courage to make new choices.

Anxiety and depression affect the whole person: psycho-spiritually, physically, mentally, and physiologically. The signs and symptoms of anxiety and depression will manifest at every level.

Do you feel overwhelmed, have pain, grief, anxiety, depression, or unseen shadows that prevent you from healing or from choosing better decisions, relationships, and allowing yourself to matter in your own life? My experience and education can help people hungering for more purpose, fulfillment, and nurturing relationships instead of dissonance, exhaustion, and sacrifice, those who know what you were aiming for, but discovered you’re at the top of the wrong ladder. If you feel like you’re different or unseen, then I may be the psychotherapist you’ve sought.

Healthy relationships are my goal and my mission. I'm especially passionate about working with couples, both premarital and marital. I achieve this best through a program called "Ultimate Integrity." Most of my couples say that a lack of integrity is a major problem in their relationships and this (UI) program can be very helpful to heal the wounds of lies and deceit and replace with truth and love. Many couples also struggle with stress, depression, anxiety, and addictions. I'm very proactive to identify effective strategies and coping skills to resolve these concerns.

The wounds and scars of our childhood often cause us to repeat dysfunctional patterns in our attempt to heal. We don't repeat painful relationships out of masochism or familiarity; we repeat because we want a different outcome, one we believe will shift how we feel about ourselves and our past. As a psychoanalyst, I explore (not dwell on) early care-giving relationships, traumas, and other life events that shaped who you have become. As your emotional story is realized we use our therapy relationship, your current life, and ongoing awareness of your inner world to work through the stuck places and create a different future.

Sex Therapy
Sex therapists in Ventura offer help with sexual concerns by educating, using talk therapy, offering homework exercises and resources for further exploration to either individuals or couples. Sex therapy helps couples talk about sex with each other. A sex therapist feels comfortable talking about sex and is aware of how anxious you might feel talking about this intimate subject with each other and with a near-stranger. They will help set you at ease and guide you into talking about sex. While sex therapists can help with many problems, low sexual desire and frequency disagreements between partners are two of the most frequent concerns they address.
