Every person I work with has strengths that help them recover from anxiety, depression, or relationship problems. Discovering these assets, combined with new strategies, guidance, and effort provides a path towards recovery. I am here to offer you hope that there is no need to stay stuck in pain associated with anxiety, depression and relationship issues.
Anxiety and Depression
An equally understandable, but counter-productive reaction to depression can also occur. Dark moods, fatigue and painful negative thoughts can lead to retreating from life. The retreat then makes the depression worse.
Please know that there are many things that we can do to help you reclaim your life. One powerful strategy is to clarify how distorted thinking patterns are fueling anxiety and depression. When these patterns are replaced with more reasonable thoughts, you will feel better.
Some relationship issues, such as domestic violence, require specialized treatment. For 12 years I was co-coordinator and therapist in a San Diego County certified domestic violence treatment program. To maximize safety and minimize potential violence, it is important to get help from a trained therapist in this field.
The Advantages of Teletherapy
Convenience, safety and security are good reasons to choose teletherapy. Seeing me in the privacy of your own home without having to drive to an appointment can be appealing factors. Limiting exposure to the virus during the pandemic is another. I have utilized every technical strategy available to ensure that your sessions are secure and private. Also consider your easy access to treatment – if you reside in the state of California, I can see you.
You Too Can Use This Technology
