My Approach to Helping

Guided Exploration of Self: Therapy for Personal Discovery & Healing

If you're feeling overwhelmed by the past or find yourself stuck in patterns that you don't fully understand, I want you to know that you're not alone. I'm here to help you navigate through these complex emotions and experiences. I specialize in helping individuals like you find relief and understanding, As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a focus on both EMDR and psychoanalytic therapy, as a therapist with a focus on both EMDR, DBT, and psychodynamic therapy.
In our sessions together, we'll embark on an approach that combines a personalized technique to explore insights in your life and presenting issues. This combination is particularly effective if you're dealing with the impacts of trauma or if you're curious about the deeper motivations that drive your behaviors and affect your emotional health.
From my early career days to my current practice, I've grown profoundly and cherish every interaction with my patients. Their stories and resilience inspire me. I take pride in walking along side them on their therapeutic journey. My style is compassionate, non-judgmental, down-to-earth, flexible and organized. I hope to meet you where you are at in the present moment and time. This approach helps me understand where you want to start and constructing goals in therapy.

More Info About My Practice

I am the owner of Orange County Therapy. My group practice is dedicated to providing compassionate, evidence-based mental health services to individuals in our community. Our team consists of highly trained and experienced therapists who specialize in a variety of therapeutic approaches, ensuring that we can meet the diverse needs of our clients.

One of our specialized offerings at Orange County Therapy is our Women's Anxiety Therapy Group. This group is designed specifically for women who are dealing with anxiety, whether it manifests as generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety, panic attacks, or other forms of anxiety. The group provides a safe and nurturing space for women to explore their experiences with anxiety, learn coping strategies, and gain support from peers who understand their challenges.

The group sessions are structured to foster an environment of trust and openness, allowing participants to share their thoughts and feelings without judgment. Our trained therapists guide each session with a focus on helping members understand the roots of their anxiety, develop resilience, and implement practical tools for managing anxiety in their daily lives. Group therapy not only helps in reducing the symptoms of anxiety but also enhances the participants' sense of empowerment and community.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

Where the heck do you start?!
Rest assured, many people are confused when it comes to therapy. It is really ambiguous and can be difficult to get the motivation to interview several therapists to find the best fit. When you finally decide you're ready for therapy and somehow find me, the next step would be completing a free consultation then making an appointment. Once the initial appointment is scheduled, you will be sent all intake documents by client portal and complete all paperwork electronically (we can do paper copies too if that works better). You do not need to do anything to prepare for your first session but you can expect just to share why you came, your expectations for your treatment and collaborating on a game plan for therapy. Your next few sessions may look like this. Typically I can't determine a length of treatment in a few sessions but I am happy to discuss this more with you. Treatment length really depends on what issues arise and why you come to therapy.

Groups I Work With

    As a dedicated therapist, I specialize in providing compassionate and effective counseling services to a diverse range of clients. My practice is inclusive and supportive of individuals experiencing anxiety and depression, catering to adults who struggle with these common yet deeply disruptive mental health issues. I work extensively with survivors of trauma, employing trauma-informed care that recognizes and emphasizes understanding the pervasive impact of trauma and the complex paths toward healing. My services are also tailored to adolescents navigating the stresses of growth and transition, providing them with strategies to manage school stress, family dynamics, and peer relationships.

    For professionals and corporate clients, I offer workplace mental health support, helping individuals deal with job-related stress, career transitions, and work-life balance issues.
