Therapists Specializing in Physical Wellness in San Diego

Generally speaking, physical wellness is about taking good care of our bodies so that they are healthy and operate at their best. There are numerous factors that you can control to improve your physical wellness, such as nutrition, sleep, and exercise. Additionally, good physical health is associated with good mental health.

Most mental health professions have insight into the relationship between physical and mental health, yet the therapeutic approach used by each may vary. Some therapists might use motivational interviewing (MI) techniques to help those who are struggling with commitment or behavior change. Others might provide solution-focused therapy to help clients overcome barriers to improving physical health, and still others might use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help individuals progress with their physical wellness through the development of more helpful thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors.

My approach is supportive yet directive and I encourage my clients to gradually step out of their comfort zone. I believe the best way to ensure progress is to get comfortable being uncomfortable so that you can be comfortable again! Whether it’s stress, anxiety, racing thoughts, pain, or all of the above, my goal with every client is to help them better understand how to use their brain to their advantage so that they can achieve their goals.

Please don't hesitate to reach out and schedule a complimentary phone consultation to see if my services are right for you. I look forward to hearing from you!

Has your stress and anxiety become intolerable in a way that’s preventing you from enjoying the present and moving towards your desired future? Do you know what your goals are, but you can’t figure out how to reach them? Are you having trouble liking yourself and offering yourself care and compassion?  Many of us hit points where we confront injuries from our past or roadblocks in the present that feel too difficult to confront. These roadblocks interfere with being able to experience joy or move towards our definition of a life worth living. Sometimes our thoughts and emotions can become so unmanageable that we forget where we are trying to go, or they cause us to lose confidence in our ability to reach certain goals.

If you are struggling with managing anxiety and pain, calming your mind, regaining control of your emotions, finding joy in the present, building self-esteem and better relationships, or removing barriers towards the life that you want then you are not alone. In my practice I utilize Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Based Therapy and holistic modalities such as breath and bodywork to help get clients to where they are trying to go. Growing up as a surfer, yogi and high achiever I understand the importance of have tools to calm the mind as well as the body. I believe that we can work together to help you learn the tools you need to remove barriers, learn to manage your emotions and create the life that you want.

I see adolescent and adult clients at my offices located in West Los Angeles and Studio City. I also work with clients remotely providing teletherapy sessions. I specialize in helping those who struggle with anxiety disorders, self-esteem issues and depression learn to better understand themselves and what they need to live in alignment with their values and the life they want. It is so important to learn how to calm the mind, live more fully in the present and have a space to feel supported and this is what I strive to provide for those I work with.

It's so important to connect with your therapist. I take so much joy in connecting with others and allow you a safe, comfortable space to be vulnerable in. I'm human too, so I like to laugh with you and cry with you. I want therapy to be a positive experience and work hard to collaborate with you on your treatment goals and keep the lines of communication open about what you are liking or disliking about our time together.

It is my job but also my privilege to connect with you and form a therapeutic relationship that you feel like you can be yourself in. I have a no judgment zone policy, as I am not here to do that, but only to listen, empathize, and educate in the hopes that you leave therapy with more self awareness, confidence, and coping skills. Can't wait to meet you!

Therapy isn't magic.

As much as I wish I could wave a magic wand and magically relieve all the pain in your life, I don't have that power.

Therapy also isn't (or shouldn't) be a place where you simply share what's wrong, get validation, and leave feeling happy only to realize nothing is changing.

Therapy is a safe space to be heard, to gain insight into what isn't working anymore, and to find a new way forward towards the life you've always wanted. Regardless of what's going on in your world. You don't have to wait until those 'what if' thoughts, overwhelming feelings, or panicky sensations go away in order to take steps towards taking back control over your life.

I can help you break stuck patterns, learn a new approach to engaging with your busy mind, and feel connected with the person you want to be while taking steps towards the life you want to lead.

I'm a present-focused, action-oriented, non-cookie cutter therapist. That means I don't spend sessions digging through your past, doing the same exact treatment for everyone, or only talking about your current situation without any means for coping with or changing it. Sometimes therapy may involve talking about uncomfortable topics or facing painful thoughts or feelings, but I'll be there guiding you through the entire time. And since this is a collaborative process, I'm always open to feedback, but strive to never make you do the emotional labor of educating me about your background.

Beginning therapy with a new therapist can be very intimidating. My goal is to help you to feel as comfortable in this process as possible. My hope for you is that you can come to each session and use the time to talk about exactly what YOU want. It is your time and my pleasure to guide you through areas of your life that you may feel stuck. I do not have all the answers but I am good at asking questions to help you come to the correct answer for you. My hope for you is that you leave each session with some tools to practice and when you return we can talk about what worked and what didn't.
