Unfortunately, life isn't always fair, and, at times, we get difficult experiences that tend to affect and even shape us, and our outlook on life. However, I believe EVERYONE is capable of healing, and creating a beautiful life they want to live!
The wounds don't have to be forever painful, but can be turned into wisdom and strength. Your journey does not have to be predetermined, - you can begin to feel in charge, visualize what you want, and live the life you design.
It sounds too simple and almost non-realistic, but it is very achievable. When working with my clients, I try to help them get as close as they want to to this goal.
I'm a psychotherapist, practicing in Westlake Village, CA. In my practice, I work with individuals, couples, children, and families. In my own life, very early on, I was curious about the way to redirect my course of life from "automatic", to more conscious way. I wondered about how much power we do have in creating the life we would want to live. That is, probably, why I started to be interested in the field of psychology. With lots of education, experience, self-exploration, overcoming certain hardships, learning more adaptive skills, etc., I feel I was able to design and live my life exactly how I like it right now.
That is why I love taking my clients on their journey towards owning their life, towards making it more meaningful and fulfilling. In working with my clients, I customize every treatment by assessing and utilizing the techniques, treatment models, skills, etc. with which the client would be the most successful.
When it comes to emotional well-being, I believe in the value of Mind-Body connection, and often incorporate cognitive (mind), as well as somatic (body) techniques for more effective results.
I think it is important for clients to feel own strength in the work that they do in therapy, that is why I try to provide them with necessary techniques, tools, and skills to be able to have a sense of mastery in their life.
I am passionate about my work, and enjoy leading people through their healing process, into the light. Contact me 805-206-9155, if you would like to discuss how psychotherapy can help you!
