Individual Psychotherapy for Adults

With adults, I utilize a cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness approach for immediate change and coping with life-stressors, along with a deeper psychodynamic approach to enhance awareness, change past patterns, increase strengths and self-esteem, and engage in healthier/positive relationships and choices.

  • I provide you with effective tools to begin immediate changes and coping in your life.
  • I begin where you are emotionally and psychologically, and in a safe and respectful manner we explore and identify varying patterns in your life that have led to your current pain.
  • I facilitate your gaining a deeper understanding and insight of your challenges
  • I provide support, guidance, and psychological tools to enhance your strengths and self esteem.

I specialize in:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Trauma
  • Loss (including pregnancy loss)
  • Family Conflict
  • Divorce
  • Parenting
  • Adoption
  • Relationships
  • Psychological and Psycho-educational Assessments

What to Expect from Individual Therapy

As I help you develop immediate coping skills, you will learn to successfully navigate through emotional challenges related to relationships, stress, conflict, anxiety, trauma, loss, and depression.

My task is also to provide you with life-long understanding, tools, and internal change that will enhance your abilities to make better choices, empower you, and achieve recovery, healing, success, and fulfillment in permanent and profound ways.

You will also learn to make better choices as you empower yourself and move towards healthier ways of being that will stay with you for a lifetime.

If you are in the San Diego, California area and are considering seeing a psychologist, I would be happy to discuss your particular issues and the support you need over the phone via an initial free consultation.  Call me at (858) 531-1122.  I look forward to speaking with you.
