Therapy is a collaborative process, fostering Growth and Change from unwanted personal habits, undesired patterns of thinking, and unhealthy Relational or FAMILY interactions. Working together includes uncovering Thought and Behavioral patterns, and negative beliefs, identifying and working through the Challenges you are experiencing. Committed to helping you discover and reach your unique POTENTIAL and GOALS, while feeling HAPPIER and experiencing more EFFECTIVE RELATIONSHIPS. I incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Family Systems approaches to Therapy, focusing on SOLUTION-BASED outcomes, and tailoring Therapy to the you or your family's needs.

More Info About My Practice

Licensed by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences. Master of Arts in Marriage, Family, and Child Counseling. Credentialed in Pupil Personnel Services and School Counseling. More than 29 years of counseling experience with ADULTS, ADOLESCENTS, and CHILDREN. Specializing in working with PARENTS of strong-willed CHILDREN and TEENS. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. Parent Project Facilitator: Parenting classes in school districts and community agencies. Fostering change from undesired patterns of thinking, and unhealthy FAMILY or relational interactions, to help you identify and work through the Challenges you are experiencing.

My Therapy Focus

In THERAPY, I focus on all aspects of the Individual and Family's life. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Family Systems as approaches to Treatment, including other THERSPY techniques and guidelines tailored to the INDIVIDUAL, COUPLE, and FAMILY.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

The length of time you spend in THERAPY, and the frequency of your visits depend on your situation. Are you in Crisis? Then, perhaps initially, you might want to meet with a Therspist twice a week, or at least weekly, until you feel the Crisis is subsiding. If you have a history of Trauma, and you are wanting to address the trauma in THERAPY, you might want to take things step by step, addressing smaller amounts of memories and information, which might take a little longer in THERAPY to work through. My overall philosophy for THERAPY is that most therapeutic strategies can be completed relatively Short-Term, focusing more on what is not working for you right now in your life, and how I can HELP you meet your TREATMENT GOALS to COPE better with Emotions, and Communicate more effectively in your current RELATIONSHIPS. Then, if you need to return for Treatment in the future to further address new issues, you can return to THERAPY to work through the current challenges.
