I am a bi-lingual therapist providing counseling and therapy services in English and German. My approach as a therapist and counselor is to promote a secure and calm atmosphere where children, individuals, and families can discover new means in dealing with various life stressors and issues. I incorporate an eclectic therapy approach (various theoretical counseling orientations including trauma specific therapy like EMDR and TF-CBT) which is individually suited to benefit my clients.
My specialties are trauma related concerns, depression, anxiety and sports mental health issues. Additionally, I have experience working with the following issues:
Domestic Violence, Relationship concerns, Self-esteem, Grief work and other Emotional disturbances, Sexual abuse, Self-harming behaviors and Suicidal Ideation, Divorce, Parenting, Family conflict, Perfectionism and Coping Skills, etc.
Call me today to schedule an appointment and allow me to be part of your journey to a better self. My office is located in Costa Mesa, CA.
What to expect:
When you call to schedule your appointment I will ask you a couple of questions to get a better understanding if and how my counseling and therapy can be helpful to you. If we decide to schedule an appointment, I will ask for your email address in order to provide you access to a secure online portal. This portal will have links to my therapy office policies and procedures plus a questionnaire. This questionnaire allows me to get a better understanding of your personal plus family mental health history and reasons that caused you to seek the help of a counselor and therapist. Our first meeting will include a free 15 minute initial face to face counseling consultation to see if my approach and personality feel comfortable to you. After the first 15 minutes you can decide if you want to continue with the normal 50 minute counseling session or prefer to receive referrals for other therapists in your area.
