Saturdays and evenings appointments available. Am I the right therapist for you? Helping client's is the primary goal of every therapist. What can you do for me that the others can't? That is a valid question. Many healthcare providers provide symptom management rather than treating the main problem. I mainly use Solution Focused Therapy to focus on client's present and future and to find solutions for their problems. The therapy is not about me; its about you. However, in addition to my years of education, I bring a life-time of personal life experience and an extensive personal knowledge to the sessions.

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.

Other modalities I utilize include DBT, Narrative, Solution Focused and Art therapy.
My approach is centered around the belief that each individual is unique and therefore has a unique set of underlying needs and values that deserve to be nurtured. In a society that drives in the fast lane, I believe that it is fundamental to get in touch with that which brings meaning, fulfillment and balance to your life. I support my clients to externalize their struggle so that problem areas can be explored objectively rather than attributed to dysfunction. You are not your anxiety or depression; it’s time that you understand these symptoms and begin to empower yourself with the strengths you already possess.

I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Strengths based, Mindfulness and Solution Focused interventions.
Asking for help can be one of the most difficult and even scariest thing for you to do. But therapy doesn't have to be so daunting nor does it have to take years for you to feel better. The therapy space should feel safe and empowering in order for you to be able to share, to learn, to consider a different perspective, to gain insight, to process your experiences, to start healing your emotional wounds, and to grow. You are not alone in feeling lost, helpless, angry, or confused. WE ALL feel this way at some point in, or about some areas of, our lives. A burden shared is a burden less heavy.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Mission Viejo, 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.
