During one of my first experiences at Boston University's Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, I observed how individuals with debilitating phobias could conquer them and move on to live liberated and fulfilled lives.
I learned that no matter what the obstacle, if given enough support and empowerment, enlightenment can be achieved.
Over the last fifteen years, I have worked with a wide variety of clients with mild to severe psychiatric illnesses (anxiety, depression, PTSD and other mood disorders), chronic pain, and dual diagnosis in both inpatient hospital and day treatment/outpatient settings. I also have particular interest in relationship issues, adjustment to life transitions (to college, divorce, aging), and grief and loss.
In addition to my current position as a Clinical Supervisor at a local psychiatric facility, I started my private practice to fulfill my dream of guiding others towards finding themselves and being successful within their world.
Regardless of your reason for attending therapy, Mission Valley Psychology strives to create a secure and comforting environment for individuals, or couples, to explore the matters they find most challenging in their lives.
Collaboratively, we work to find a healthy balance between focusing on current concerns, as well as the potential contributing factors from the past. The foundation of this balance is to allow one to move in the direction of empowerment to confront the current problems they are facing. It's also hoped that the individual, couple, or family gain understanding into the past relationship patterns that may be reoccurring and acting as an obstacle to their happiness.
Thought patterns, feelings and one's behaviors may be examined to assist in providing you with the perspective you have always hoped for yourself.
