. . . to a relational, experiential based clinical psychology practice.
Hello and thanks for visiting this website.
Every day, if one directs energy to task, a person can follow a path encompassing personal growth and well-being. Each new day is a new beginning. Maladaptive attitudes and habits are malleable and can be made adaptive.
What if we could make use of troubling or painful body sensations, feelings, thoughts, behaviors and personality traits to transform experience and as a result, suffer less? Having daily distress and impairment is indication the approach in how we conduct life may need revision. The acquisition of knowledge and skills to adaptively interpret and integrate current distress and impairment is more relevant to balanced holistic health than controlling, ignoring, blocking, resisting or avoiding maladaptive functioning. In fact, trying to control, ignore, block, resist or avoid what bothers or impedes us may often amplify suffering. An alternate, dynamic path may be for us to engage in satisfying and enjoyable activities that promote relational acceptance of self, reshaping ourselves and regaining homeostasis.
As a California Board licensed clinician, my goal is to facilitate cultivation of insight, awareness, empathy, compassion and self-acceptance, which in turn allows for a vibrant and purposeful life. In an authentic, safe, caring, comfortable, supportive atmosphere I offer mental healthcare services to children, adolescents and adults of every ethnicity, cultural background, gender and sexual orientation, tailored for specific need, to attain personal growth and transformative-healing oriented wellness.
Through the application of complementary Psychodynamic Interpersonal Therapy (PIT), Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (MBCBT), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) - theory - approaches - interventions, we can achieve transformation in personality, body, emotion, thought and behavior. This is done by in depth processing of difficult emotional and relational experience. In this experiential way we can realize our potential as insightful, empathic, compassionate, aware, vital human beings. Together we can explore and examine personal values while learning committed action to achieve an objective of leading a meaningful life. If you are looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or are ready to move in a new direction, I look forward to working with you to realize those goals.
