Be kind, because everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. Plato
Therapy & psychology in Newbury Park, Thousand Oaks.
Some are burdened with a sense of disconnection from others. Many come to believe that they are isolated without hope. Joining the tapestry of humanity, learning about the beloved, and understanding the language of relationships are some of the benefits of insight oriented psychotherapy. Often depression, anxiety and fears, loneliness and even psychosis begin with isolation.This isolation is made intolerable by disappointments and trauma. Self-knowledge is the beginning of healing. From self knowledge comes self-control, humility, and a sense of purpose. The staff at New Dawn Psychology Center strives to help you overcome life's trials and tribulations.
Communication is essential in human relations. However, many do not understand what the other person is actually saying. Helping individuals learn proper communication techniques is one of our specialties. The risk of divorce or separation is too great without these skills.

Dreams are to the mind what blood is to the body. A drop of blood analyzed can tell much about the body. A dream analyzed and interpreted can tell much about the situation.

Music is the universal language of Love. Love is the only thing you get by giving it away.
...and remember, happiness is an invitation not an obligation. To find love you have to give it. This is the mystery to solve!
I love, therefore I live.
How can we help?
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through psychotherapy and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with both couples and is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.
What would you rather have, a Lover or a Friend?
The Lover spends his passion on you,
illuminates you with his candor
and may fade away.
A Friend will be the defender of your life.
He will fight your enemies side-by-side,
and be an unfailing companion.
If you marry your Lover, he becomes your husband:
How long before you are both dissatisfied with the life you live?
If you marry your Friend, he becomes your Lover;
and may share the same fate.
What is the solution then, for women and for men?
Ah! if your Lover and Friend eats daily his bread,
from the Great Love in the Sky;
then, he will bring fresh fruits of love and wisdom to you.
He will visit the garden of your soul to your great delight!
Who can visit your secret vineyard?
Who can taste and see the goodness within,
rest among your lilies and pomegranate trees?

Psychotherapy is a learning process in which you come to better understand yourself and your relationships so you could more successfully handle challenging situations. As a therapist, my role is to help you explore destructive patterns and develop more positive skills to address life issues and transform daily experiences. Life is a journey, I meet people where they are at and work collaboratively to create a road map to make life more rewarding.
Working with children that struggle with their social-emotional development has become my passion and I take pride on assisting them and their parents to maximize their potential and enhance the opportunities of the family life. I offer parenting and co-parenting sessions to improve communication and promote the use of problem solving skills.
Healing from trauma could be a long and windy road; regaining a sense of self and re-discovering the meaning of life could be challenging after significant events in our lives. In therapy you will find a safe place to explore your feelings and learn how to bring closure to the situation so it won't continue bringing you down. I work collaboratively with clients so they could become the best of who they are.
We love our clients, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.
