Therapy can be brief, solution focused and designed with an end result in mind.
Change is possible. With over 20+ years of experience I have successfully worked with individuals, adolescents, couples and families to reduce anxiety, depression and overall conflict, whether it be at home or work. As little as 3-5 sessions my clients have reported that they have higher self esteem and greater confidence in all areas of their life. High stress can hit you during times of change; birth, separation, divorce or death of a loved one. I will help guide you through this difficult time. Each client's therapy is individualized, collaborative and strength based. I offer 2 hour dive deep intensive couples therapy.

I utilize not only CBT but biofeedback, hypnotherapy, heart rate variability as well as psychodynamic therapy and solution focused therapy.
I believe anxiety and stress to be the foundation of many issues we all face. My first goal is to help my patients reduce stress thereby decreasing chronic pain, depression and even the ravages of disease and illness. By developing rapport and trust and then utilizing healthy coping skills, the goal of anxiety reduction can be achieved. Its important to remember that we are engaged in a collaborative process where we learn to accept, resolve, move on and let go. I find that mindfulness, meditation and breathing is highly effective in decreasing anxiety and depression.

Trauma, anxiety, and addiction can make you feel stuck. The most important step towards healing is to address the unresolved emotion inside you. Healing requires feelings. Acceptance slowly dissolves pain. When we function from the fear and scarring of our trauma, the cycles continue until we learn how to transmute that energy into love. I apply a Holistic approach that integrates physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual forms of well-being, addressing the “whole” self.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Santa Monica, 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.
