A Warm Welcome to You
Each new journey begins with one step. One step at a time, and one foot in front of the other will allow you to get to where you need to be. I am a therapist and counselor in Porter Ranch, the San Fernando Valley - Northridge area. I specialize in working and treating adults, adolescents/teens and families that are having trouble moving beyond anxiety, depression, low self-esteem or disturbing memories relating to recent or long-ago trauma(s).Together we will identify emotional and behavioral patterns that you are struggling with to overcome.
Are you feeling...
The need to avoid people or places?
Like you are struggling maintaining positive relationships?
Difficulty stopping your thoughts or quieting your mind?
Like you are falling behind at work or school?
If you are having one or more of these symptoms, feel free to call me to start you on a journey of rediscovering yourself. I believe that the source for all healing and lasting change is rooted in seeking out for help... Just put one foot in front of the other, and take it one step at a time. I look forward to talking to you soon.
Is this your First Time in Therapy?
I can understand how daunting it may be to be here, on this website looking for help. I have been in your shoes before, too. I want to let you know that therapy, counseling or psychotherapy is not something that is for "crazy" people. Think of it as healthy meetings you will be having to assist you in achieving your personal and professional goals. My style is not to push people beyond what they are emotionally capable of. In the first few sessions, we will be focused on providing you with the education you need about your symptoms and finding or strengthening healthier coping skills.
If you call me and find that I am not a good fit for you, I will not be offended. I will help you with referrals so that you can find what you need, because the most important thing in this is you. You took the initiative to look for help, and you deserve to attain it. Call or text me for a free consultation at 818-835-5330.
Are you a survivor of the Las Vegas or borderline bar shooting?
Were you at the venues during the shooting? You might be struggling with more than one post traumatic stress symptom, such as flashbacks, nightmares, hyper-vigilence, trouble sleeping or eating.
Call or text me today at (818) 835-5330 to set up an appointment using Victims of Crime compensation, a government funded program for survivors. EMDR can be provided.
Compensation Program: (12/30/18- one slot available for CA Victims of Crime)
Please contact an advocate at the Victims of Crime compensation program if you were at the concert, or a relative of someone at the concert. Relatives can file as derivatives and will most likely be granted mental health sessions. This compensation can help extend your mental health services and can provide compensation for other expenses. It can take up to 30-90 days to be approved. The sooner you call, the better.
