“It took many years of vomiting up all the filth I’d been taught about myself, and half-believed, before I was able to walk on the earth as though I had a right to be here.”  James Baldwin

The Redefining of Personality Development

I am a California State Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT, MFC101500) and Psychodynamic Psychotherapist. I hold a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology, and am in pursuit of my Doctorate (PhD) in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Depth Psychology.

In my private practice, I successfully treat Adults, Couples, Youth & Families by helping them unearth, develop and implement the more accurate perception of themSelves. The adult Self demanded in order to find, experience and tolerate personal and professional success.

Psychotherapy is a leap of faith in your Self and toward your true self. By looking at your self in a way that is empathic & honest, and allowing me to reflect back to you what it's like to be in relationship with you, you can leave the experience with an authentic perspective of you. You - from Your Point of YOU.

. . .

 

I have a deep interest in the successful treatment symptoms of trauma such as Infidelity, substance abuse and other ways in which we cope with life stressors or feelings of inadequacy  which as a Psychoanalytic/Psychodynamic Psychotherapist I see as coming from our childhood selves.

. . .

Lies we tell ourSelves like accepting a false Self narrative or a clinical diagnosis as an identify perpetuates a Self- loathing narrative in need of up rooting!

Psychodynamic therapy has its roots in psychoanalysis, the long-term "talking cure." Like psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapy recognizes that the relationships and circumstances of early life continue to affect people as adults, that human behavior results from unconscious as well as conscious or rational motives, and that the act of talking about problems can help people find ways to solve them or at least to bear them.

. . .

Both psychoanalysis and psychodynamic therapy rely on the therapeutic alliance in order to work. The therapeutic alliance is the personal connection between therapist and patient that enables them to work in tandem so that the patient can gain insight into aspects of experience that may be difficult to talk and think about. 

...

As the therapeutic alliance deepens, a therapist helps patients to understand themselves in new ways, and to become more mindful of a greater range of their thoughts, feelings, perceptions, and experiences. Dr. Glen Gabbard, professor of psychiatry and psychoanalysis at Baylor College of Medicine, has called the therapeutic alliance the "envelope" within which psychodynamic therapy takes place.

. . .


Although modern therapists frequently question the distinction, it is useful to note that psychodynamic therapy and psychoanalysis differ in some ways. During psychoan​alysis, patients generally attend meetings three to five days a week, whereas in psychodynamic therapy, a patient typically sees a therapist once or twice a week. 

...

Thus the intensity of the therapeutic relationship is greater in psychoanalysis. Both psychoanalysis and the long-term form of psychodynamic therapy may be conducted in an open-ended manner, over many years, with the patient and therapist/analyst taking as much time as they need to decide about the duration of treatment. 

...

Short-term treatment with psychodynamic therapy, in contrast, is time-limited and usually lasts less than six months.
