"During my first psychology class in high school I learned that there are actually words to describe my experience-the sometimes conflicting experiences of living between two different worlds. I became passionate about finding a way to address the experience of people whose hurts and wounds are often invisible-fractured hearts and minds vs physical challenges. I was saddened by my observation that too many people feel stigmatized and alone with their inner turmoil and wanted to find a way to make the heart, mind and body whole. My dream is that therapy becomes accessible to everyone and viewed merely as another source of support."

"Fact is, the past often gets in the way of living life to its fullest. Do you feel emotionally drained, empty inside with thoughts of self-loathing? Maybe you are consumed with shame over memories, behaviors or thoughts you cannot seem to control. Loss of sleep and an overall sense of irritability can overwhelm any sense of normalcy. This is not the real you-but how to get out from under it? Breakthroughs happen... when digging deep one needs an experienced hand to shine a light to help."

"Life can be complicated, full of change and challenges. Although we have all come up with ways get through these times or cope, sometimes challenges persist, resurface or feel overwhelming. Significant change requires deep personal examination, something difficult to do on our own. Psychotherapy is an effective way to help us understand our behavior and its connection to our inner emotional experience. It helps to resolve common problems that often impact our daily functioning including depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, bereavement, and difficult life phases. Psychotherapy is a supportive process promoting exploration, growth and change."

"Fear and anxiety touch us all. No matter what role they play in your life, you or your loved one don't have to suffer. Using cognitive behavioral therapy, exposure and response prevention, and mindfulness approaches, you can learn to tame those fears versus letting them control you and those around you. Parents and loved ones will learn to best support the sufferer without enabling the fear and anxiety. Whether the sufferer is a child, adolescent, or adult, the goal of treatment is to guide and empower you to be able to overcome anxiety, OCD, and related stress with confidence."

Just as the words we hear become the words we speak, the way we're treated becomes the basis for how we treat others, and how we expect to be treated by the people in our lives.

Online Therapy


Video Counseling (Online Therapy, Skype, Teletherapy) Therapists
Video therapy is a good solution for people who do not have access to well-qualified clinical professionals in their area or who live remotely or abroad. We also refer to it as teletherapy, online therapy or skype therapy: in short, it's simply conducting a clinical therapy session using a video phone as the means of communicating.

It's an excellent solution for those who are immobile or find it more convenient to conduct therapy in the privacy of their own home. Or are agoraphobic (fearful of leaving their home), but still want therapy.

If you're looking for video therapy in Los Angeles or for a Los Angeles video therapist these professionals provide online therapy, video conferencing, skype therapy and video treatment. They include skype therapists, skype psychologists and skype counselors. In the US, there are state laws that govern to whom therapy may be given by professionals licensed in a particular state. And the inter/intra state laws vary from state to state (and from profession to profession). To be safe, before commencing therapy via video, you should clarify with the professional that they are able to conduct sessions with you.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Los Angeles are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Los Angeles you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Los Angeles and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Los Angeles or family therapy in Los Angeles.
