A person seeks professional help when they feel unfulfilled and stuck, during a time of great loss/crisis or when they are experiencing relationship difficulties.
My client is the relationship not each individual, which allows me to offer non-judgmental and warm help to couples who are in different stages of their relationship.
From the first session you will have a short term plan in place and I will help facilitate healing
using the Gottman Method.
Mediation is a way to amicably deal with conflict relating to family disputes, marriage dissolution, co-parenting issues and many more.
Is the missing link between therapy sessions. Using this tool will enhance the effectiveness of your therapy by assisting you in gathering information necessary for treatment as well as providing feedback to your therapist regarding the effectiveness of sessions.
THERAPY FOR INDIVIDUALS, COUPLES, & FAMILIES
IN THOUSAND OAKS/WESTLAKE VILLAGE
A person seeks professional help when they feel unfulfilled and stuck, during a time of great loss/crisis or when they are experiencing relationship difficulties. Despite all efforts to handle this alone, they continue to experience a painful awareness that something significant is missing. I provide a emphatic, non-judgmental and confidential environment in which we work together, at a comfortable pace, to identify/explore thoughts, feelings and behaviors which interfere with your reaching your maximum potential for happiness in your career and relationships. Through our work together, you will move toward healing and improving the quality of your life.
My sincere caring, sharp intellect, extensive training and many years of experience has enabled me to help individuals, couples and families suffering from problems of anxiety, depression, marital difficulties, career challenges, loss, relationship issues and trauma. In consideration of your problems, treatment will be tailored to your individual needs. I practice Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) which is the only psychotherapy that is scientifically supported by more than 30 years of research demonstrating its effectiveness. It is a time-limited, empirically supported treatment for a wide range of problems including depression, anxiety, stress, worry, and relationship conflicts.
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice serving the following communities:Malibu, Calabasas, Agoura, Oak Park, Westlake Village, Thousand Oaks, Moorpark, Newbury Park, Simi Valley
