Working With Me

Congratulations on taking the initial steps to address the painful or troubling issue in your life. I find it very important that you take the time to explore the right match for you when choosing a psychotherapist. Indeed, ask yourself: Will I be comfortable in sharing painful or intimate issues with this therapist over time? Do the area(s) of expertise match with my needs? Will my values and world views be respected during the course treatment? I offer a free, no-obligation, initial consultation to discuss issues at hand, and to determine if we are a good fit for each other.

I offer straight-forward, goal oriented, solution-based therapy to address your concern or painful situation. I work with adults and adolescents, and usually refer out children younger than 10 years of age. I never keep anyone in treatment longer than necessary, and I’m available 24 hours for any crisis.

I have an office space in Valencia, but offer the flexibility of home visits if deemed clinically necessary.

To schedule an appointment, please contact me directly (661) 733-4434.

What My Clients Are Saying

Jeff basically saved our marriage. When we first came to him, I was on verge of walking out the door on my husband. Not only did he teach us how to communicate in a healthier way, but he also provided with ‘tools’ on how to problem-solve issues in our marriage…

You’ll know what I’m saying once you meet Jeff – he’s rock solid, compassionate, and knows his stuff…that’s the kind of therapist that worked for me.

My teenage daughter started cutting on herself after a long, painful divorce which had a lot of domestic violence along the way. We saw a few therapists that focused on the cutting, but didn’t see the big picture. Jeff understood exactly what my family was going through, our culture and values, and most importantly the pain and anxiety my daughter was dealing with that lead to her cutting…
