My Approach to Helping

In addition to treating depression and anxiety, I specialize in a few other areas: trauma, griefloss and LGBTQ issues.

I use a variety of therapeutic approaches, including cognitive behavioral therapy, EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), sensorimotor psychotherapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy (insight-oriented therapy) and mindfulness. As always, I tailor my approach to the specific needs of each client.

I’ve found EMDR to be particularly effective for my clients who have experienced a variety of traumas, including childhood abuse or neglect, sexual or physical assault or the death of a loved one.

My style is warm and empathetic but also challenging. The feedback I most often hear is “you’re different from other therapists”, meaning that I ask the hard questions and provide the tough love that gets people to make real changes in their lives, rather than just talk about wanting change. I roll up my sleeves and dig in; I expect my clients to do the same.

I view therapy as a collaborative process, so I value your feedback throughout our work together. As your therapist, I will act more as your guide rather than an all-knowing expert. After all, you are the expert on your life.

I believe the therapeutic relationship is critical to a successful outcome, so I work hard to establish a strong connection between us by creating a safe and non-judgmental space where you can freely express your thoughts and feelings.

Once that connection is established, I’ll help you remove obstacles that have been hindering your growth or healing. These obstacles may be related to your thoughts or behaviors; they may be conscious or unconscious. Lastly, my goal is to arm you with an arsenal of coping skills and strategies so you eventually become your own therapist. It’s been incredibly rewarding to see so many of my clients go from surviving to thriving.

More Info About My Practice

I'm accepting new clients and doing all of my sessions via teletherapy, also known as online therapy. While I’m based in Ventura, Calif., I’m licensed in both California and Oregon, so I can provide online therapy to clients in both states. I use TheraNest as my video platform. It’s safe, secure and easy to use.

I know people lead busy lives, so I offer daytime and evening appointments. Also, I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to see if we’re a good fit, so call or email me to get started. New clients can usually be seen within 1-2 weeks.
