My focus of therapy is strengths based, problem-solution focused and psychodynamic.
Are you tired of "being sick and tired"? Do you need to break unhealthy habits? It is time to take control. Deal with the issues that cause you to feel depressed, anxious, angry and stuck in unhealthy relationships. Stop blaming others, beating yourself up and sabotaging yourself. Stop feeling guilty and recalling mistakes you have made. Love yourself and be the best person you can be. Improve your self-confidence, your self -esteem and your relationships. It is time for you to decide " What do you want to do with your life"? You can be transformed and re-newed.

I provide a safe and non-judgmental environment for my clients. I believe that my job as a therapist is to work in a partnership with clients in learning more about themselves, resolving past pain and then achieving personal happiness. Personal growth and happiness is a goal that is unique to each individual. There is not just one way to achieve personal happiness and I will help each client find their own way to obtain their goals. I offer a solution-focused approach to therapy and I utilize cognitive-behavioral techniques to help my clients reach their goals.

I infuse psychoanalysis, Family Systems, CBT, and Solution Focused therapy.
Is your relationship suffering due to addiction, infidelity or lack of communication? I work with individuals and couples who have tried to 'make things work' but find that the trust, the pain, and the sadness is too overwhelming to do it on their own. My role is helping you navigate a way out of the emotional maze that can feel lonely and hopeless. Feeling stuck leads to depression and anxiety that affects the quality of your life and your active participation in your happiness. This is the point when you socialize less, watch Netflix more, and find life and relationships mundane.

Anxiety can be scary, even when it shows up when you are leaving the house, meeting a friend, or ordering food. Everyday tasks don’t seem that easy with anxiety around. I want to help turn the volume down on your anxiety so that even the simplest asks will become easier. I like to use a combination of CBT, ERP, and Mindfulness to help reduce anxiety. I am now currently accepting new clients via tele-health.

Do you want more tranquility in your life? Just breath it in. Being aware of your breath can calm your body and mind as it is the polar opposite of anxiety and stress. All humans seek, desire, and have the need to feel comforted, however, issues arise when we end up depending on things we can't control to meet these needs for us. One of the main focus points to remedy this can be to learn how to sooth and comfort one's self by connecting with your own inner being's self autonomy. As a client you are not responsible for memorizing any concepts or interventions, but only to be open to the resolutions that guides your healing journey.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Laguna Niguel, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.
