I feel like I’m standing in a forest clearing; sun is rising after the war I’ve had to fight my whole life. My past behind me and my future ahead while I stand in the middle. Im nearly 24 which I never thought I’d be. Every year past 15 I’m surprised that I’ve made it this far. When I was 15, I was diagnosed with depression and blamed myself for having something I had no understanding of. I was in a constant state of crisis while feuding with two different sides of my family with estranged relatives that were cut out for good reason. The books I was meant to write were born which saved my life. I wanted those books published that had been my goal since I was 17 then I did that. I wrote 2 books back to back for 8 years then published 3 books within the last two years. After first publication, I was burned by what little family I had left when they’re unsupportive opinions turned into an act with a malicious result. It triggered my abandonment and trust issues sending me into a depressive relapse. I’ve recovered since then but spend 99% of my time alone. I don’t have friends, I have a faint interest in dating partially due to my insecurities with my past issues. I also can’t fathom the idea of being able to trust someone the amount of times I’ve been burned. I really don’t know what a healthy relationship is. All that’s in the future and I really don’t know what’s going to happen. I’ve never had such a relaxed attitude towards uncertainty even my therapist was surprised. During my relapse I went crazy attempting to micromanage everything to control everything around me. I don’t know what’s going to happen and that’s okay. Maybe I’m just a little more fearless after all the situations I’ve endured. A new year can open up to anything happening

As a licensed clinical psychologist for 20+ years, I understand that the relationship and "fit" between client and therapist is paramount. I work hard to establish and maintain a relationship based on mutual trust and honesty. We can work together to help you feel less stuck, and more in control.

"Everyday is about becoming" I believe that going through a process of self-reflection and change is powerful and brave. It helps us identify how we are getting in our own way in having a better quality of life. In responsibility their is power. Everyone wants to feel content and satisfied with themselves and the world they build around them but we struggle to achieve this goal because we have been hurt, disappointed, betrayed, or doubt ourselves. Find your personal power and change your world. I am with you.

Are you stressed? Worried about your relationship? I can help you. My clients often comment on how comfortable they feel with me.

My style is non-judgemental and accepting. I will work collaboratively with you and can offer guidance or let you guide the flow of our sessions. I do that in a way that is supportive and easy to hear. I have been in practice for over 20 years, and am very versatile in my therapeutic style.

As a retired licensed psychotherapist (California) I’m also a trained, professional personal consultant, coach and counselor. Over these years I have helped people deal with depression, anxiety, loneliness and all sorts of other emotional and psychological issues that are to personal to share with friends and family members and yet, the issues are not severe enough to warrant the need for a psychotherapist or psychologist. I offer a viable alternative to short or long term psychotherapy. You need an outsider’s perspective. Someone with a patient ear. You need to talk to someone who is not going to judge you. You need someone around who knows what works and what does not. To schedule an appointment please visit https://kvanb.com/house-calls/
As a psychotherapist, my goal is to join with each client I support in ways that feel genuine, accepting and positive while emphasizing each individual’s capacity to be the expert of his or her own life and therapeutic journey. I hope to share how living in the moment can strengthen our awareness of our personal feelings and experiences, as well as those of others – and how when we intentionally think and act from this place – we begin evolving into our ideal selves in our day to day life and in our relationships with others.
