About

Be seen during flexible hours within a week of your request! I specialize in personalized mental healthcare and put you in the driver's seat. You will always be speaking directly to me about your care, no need to communicate through support staff or encounter long delays. I welcome your opinions and preferences while making your treatment plan, rather than taking an authoritative stance. I will gladly answer questions and concerns about your symptoms and potential treatments, using language free of medical jargon.
I work with adults primarily with mood disorders (depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder) and have special interests in mental health of minority populations and social anxiety. I am highly experienced in psychodynamic psychotherapy, and have a certification in psychoanalytic psychotherapy training from the Los Angeles New Center for Psychoanalysis.
If you're ready to make a change, I'm happy to help you explore ways to move forward. Call or email me today for a free 15-minute phone consultation. I look forward to meeting you!
