Support for your Healing Journey

In the midst of difficulty lies opportunity and hope


new debPresumably you are trying to find a therapist suited to your particular needs. I want to help you make that important decision by being as open as I can be about myself and how I work.

People come to me for many reasons having to do with their work, personal growth and relationships. Some need powerful techniques such as EMDR or Hypnosis to help quickly eliminate a specific problem.  For some, the need is for long-term Psychoanalysis or Psychodynamic therapy for deep inner healing and change. For others, it is support during a time of deepening spirituality. Each person’s needs are unique, and I try to find what works for the individual.

About Dr. Farnsworth

red baloonAs a psychotherapist serving Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, Laguna Beach and Newport Coast I work with couples and individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety and marital issues.   I know that change is not easy and yet I am inspired each day by the courage and motivation of my clients to challenge negative patterns, the trauma of the past, and the problematic issues of daily living.

No matter what the issue is, marital difficulties, past trauma, grief and loss the most important aspect of therapy is having a comfortable and trusting relationship with your therapist.  I strive to provide that for each of my patients. Because I view each person as unique I am pragmatic in my approach and use a variety of therapeutic methods in my work to assist couples and individuals grow in ways that enhance their lives and their relationships.

My Newport Beach office is a five-minute drive from John Wayne Airport and close to the 73 Toll Road. I chose my office location because of its peaceful and safe atmosphere. My clients find it a calm and comfortable sanctuary. I see a variety of individuals and couples and groups. Some of my clients work with me by phone.
