THERAPY AND COUNSELING SERVICES IN WESTLAKE VILLAGE AND THOUSAND OAKS,CA FOR TREATMENT OF DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, AND COUPLES IN CONFLICT
I am a registered Marriage and Family Therapist Associate (IMF# 105030) currently completing my hours for licensure. Sometimes with personal & private situations such as addiction, anxiety, depression, grief or loss, it does not feel right to turn to friends and family. If you are reading this website, it is possible this has already crossed your mind.
We’ve all gone through periods where we felt a little “off,” or as if our purpose is missing. This is not a sign of weakness; we may be carrying an unconscious lifelong issue, or enduring a recent crisis. Life’s problems present themselves in addictions, eating disorders, insomnia, lack of motivation, worry. We become tempted to hide our painful emotions.
Anxiety, depression, and stress disorders may appear at any point in our lives. In the long run this causes havoc…what may be considered a “disorder” is really just our body, mind and soul saying it is time for an overhaul. You may experience a wide range of physical or emotional symptoms that affect your quality of life.
We all carry buried elements of the past and day-to-day struggles that make our lives imperfect. When problems occur, nobody around you may realize just how much pain you are in. I have seen first hand and been on both sides of emotional struggles.
I was inspired to work in this field after a calling to support family and friends with addiction issues. I have worked in a variety of recovery environments including outpatient, detox, high school counseling, and provided full time concierge support to executives. Alongside my experiences in real estate, journalism, marketing and sales, I have worked with non-profit organizations in San Francisco, London, and New York. I support the City of Malibu’s homeless initiatives.
I was educated at: KU – BGS Psychology; NYU – MS Finance; Antioch University – MA in Clinical Psychology.
