"Especially when it comes to giving or receiving love, our chronic, unmet needs can lead to damaged relationships, depression, anxiety and obsessive thinking. We also might withdraw, abuse substances or act-out compulsively to find relief. These and many other forms of suffering often stem from denying one's true needs with a "false self". Psychotherapy, an immediate antidote to many of these symptoms, provides the conditions necessary to help revive one's "true self" and end the suffering. To have a chance at living a satisfying life, we must acknowledge and live in accordance with our true needs."

I spent well over a decade climbing the corporate ladder and I ultimately became a managing director and equity partner of a successful capital management firm in the Los Angeles area. Although I had reached goals and achieved significant professional success, I also experienced a lack of personal fulfillment from my career. I enjoyed my job, my clients, and my colleagues, but at the same time I felt that something was missing. At that time, it was my own experience in therapy that helped me grow to redefine what success truly means."

"I enjoyed very much my post licensure work at a family institute. Whether working with a child, an adolescent, an adult, a dyad or the whole family, I will initially focus on the person suffering the most. Based on the presenting symptom, I may do brief crisis intervention to stabilize a situation until an individual's underlying issue has been crystallized. The life issue causing depression, anxiety, and fears will then be addressed in more depth. My approach is to assist people in their own healing, maximizing on their own strengths and resources."

I work with adolescent girls and young women to help them build coping strategies to alleviate stress, problem solve, resolve conflicts, and improve communication. We work in individual sessions to identify and process emotions, beliefs, and ways these have been reflected in their behaviors and experience. Through identifying and addressing challenges, worries, and sources of anger and frustration, we set goals together to make changes and work toward positive outcomes. These may be improved mood, problem solving a worrisome situation, or better understanding of themselves and parents."

"You might be looking for support to manage a challenge that has come your way. This is a wise and life affirming choice. I find that obstacles arise as a way of offering an invitation to develop as human beings. It definitely doesn’t look and feel that way at first, but, as we look back on experiences, we know this is so. Meeting that invitation head on by having the neutral and clear guidance of a trained third party can make all the difference. "
