Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Tarzana, CA
I have worked with many clients struggling with self confidence and self esteem issues. Depression and Anxiety can present itself when the client is unsure of his/her strengths and value. Our work together is uncovering and discovering you!
I have had many years of experience with ASD. I have found CBT and Behavioral Therapy to be be beneficial in discovering tools to help support those with this diagnosis. Social skills are key and modeling and role-playing is an excellent way to teach new ways of communicating. I have been successful and seen great progress working with client's diagnosed and their families. I have found sometimes families need more support than the client.
This is quite prevalent in today's world. I am a believer that Anxiety is a part of the human condition and is welcome in our lives until it takes over. Then we must find new ways to manage. Mindfulness and ACT and CBT are all useful in managing Anxiety. The Guest House, a poem by Rumi says it all about our emotions...."This being human is a guest house.Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor." Welcome them in!
