In my 37 years as a psychologist, I have specialized in helping clients with chronic pain and stress-related disorders, and those facing a life-threatening diagnosis and their families. I offer an approach designed to help each individual quiet their mind and body so they may discover the sources of imbalance that lie beneath the painful physical and emotional symptoms that they are experiencing. Clients are encouraged throughout the therapy process to use their time of distress as a spiritually auspicious time to increase their self-understanding by opening to the deeper dimensions of themselves.

Happiness in life is dependent upon relationships - the relationship with yourself, your partner, your children - and the other significant, albeit difficult, people in your life. The bulk of my practice has focused on this very specialized area of interacting with other people. Whether doing discernment counseling with a couple contemplating divorce, working with couples to discuss and workout seemingly intractable issues----as well as mediation services for divorcing couples, relationships are the foundation of contentment and I have experienced a great deal of success with clients in this area.

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.

We as people are are all broken on some level, but we don't need to stay that way. Depending upon the cards we've been dealt in life (what's been done to us, and what we've done to ourselves) fractures in our world view, relationships, and self concept arise. I work best with a client who comes willingly to counseling, is motivated for change, and is open minded to new perspectives of responding to their problems. I currently have limited weekday openings for the Summer 2020 schedule. Many clients comment on the speed with which we are able to resolve their individual concerns.

Some people are unable to sleep, have distressing thoughts, or cannot control troublesome habits and behaviors. Others have have struggled with chronic pain due to injuries or illnesses. Many have endured the stigma of having a major mental illness which created difficulties in daily functioning, mood swings, or poor judgement and distorted thinking. And others have functioned well with significant achievements in their careers, family, and relationships but still feel empty inside, and cannot experience pleasure, meaning, or fulfillment from their lives.

While at Antioch, I studied Tibetan Buddhism in France, exploring its applications to the therapeutic process, and also in San Paulo, Brazil studying the connection between spirituality and medicine. I have since continued in both of these areas of study. I bring what I learned and incorporate elements as needed into the therapeutic process, with the goal of creating a unique approach based on what the client needs.

What is a Sleep Disorder or Insomnia?

Almost everyone goes through bouts of sleeplessness in Brentwood from time to time. Chronic insomnia, however, is marked by difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, or waking up too early. If it takes you thirty minutes or more to fall asleep, or you're awake for thirty minutes or more during the night at least three times a week-for a month or more-you're likely suffering from insomnia.

Insomnia has major effects on mood as well as alertness. It is also a classic symptom of depression.

The most effective treatments for chronic insomnia are behavioral techniques that eliminate sleep anxiety and allow the body's own sleep cycle to kick in. It may require as little as doing nothing. But Sleep specialists in Brentwood or therapists who specialize in sleep in Brentwood, or simply a Brentwood sleep therapist, can help.
