It takes a lot of courage to be vulnerable and reach out for help when you need it. Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that most of us experience at some point in our lives. Though we often times go through these painful experiences alone, you do not have to! Through counseling and treatment, I can help you recover the motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
Being a teen is hard, especially nowadays when you mix in social media and school pressures. This transitional stage of life brings up many complicated things including anxiety, low self-esteem, loneliness, peer pressure and anger. Many teens need a safe confidential space to open up and talk about the various challenges they face without it being their parent or family member. If you have a teen struggling that could use support please give me a call. I love working with teens and would love to help your child out!
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. I utilize several evidence based techniques that can help you but I have seen the greatest results with a form of therapy called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). This technique is a standardized, integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma.
Becoming a parent is a complex emotional process that can be challenging to navigate on our own. Though it is an exciting time many women have histories of trauma or difficult backgrounds that can impact the process of pregnancy and postpartum. Mothers have to adapt to many changes emotionally and physically but also changes within family dynamics and interpersonal relationships. As a therapist, and a fellow mother, I do not have all the right answers... you do! It is my goal to offer a safe space of support, healing and growth through your transition into motherhood to help find your answers from within. I work with women in pre pregnancy, during, to postpartum issues.
I reserve a few slots in my private practice for online / teletherapy sessions. These live video therapy sessions are offered to anyone in the State of California, whether if its because you feel more at ease engaging in therapy from the comfort of your home or if you have a busy work schedule requiring you to travel making it difficult to come in office. I use a secure HIPAA platform (Simple Practice) to conduct these video sessions. If you are interested I would love to chat more about this option with you.
