Everything is temporary: anxiety, heartbreak, loneliness, feelings, boredom, sadness, frustration, anger, emotions. Through the process of psychotherapy you will learn that your experiences, feelings, and behaviors can be understood instead of avoided or judged, allowing for the eventual acceptance of whatever may emerge. Together we will collaborate on building from your existing strengths in order to help you forge a clearer, manageable, productive, fuller and compassion-based life experience.

I work in a way that is based on compassionate acceptance, and I teach how to treat yourself in this same way.
Have you reached a place in your life where you are ready to explore your behaviors, relationship patterns, beliefs, and even your innermost desires? Do you feel like you are ready to take control of what may be blocking you from moving forward - at work, home, in relationships? The clients that come to see me have determined that they are ready for change and that they want to improve their lives. I believe that doing "inner work" is an entirely courageous act. And that this "inner work" can only be achieved and sustained through a holistic approach with a focus on the mind, body, and spirit.

The treatment approach that is most effective for OCD is Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), ACT, and Cognitive Restructuring.
Are you feeling overwhelmed by obsessive, unwanted thoughts and anxiety? Maybe you're experiencing concerns about harm, a past event, contamination, or being with the wrong partner. Do you feel trapped in a cycle of repetitive mental rehearsing, checking, cleaning, reassurance-seeking, or avoidance behaviors in an attempt to get relief? OCD is a frequently misunderstood disorder that can present itself with a myriad of themes, leaving the sufferer feeling trapped and hopeless. Luckily, effective treatment is available. I offer a safe, supportive space for clients to learn the tools to break free from the exhaustive grip of OCD.

Do you "have it all" but feel unsatisfied? We live in an era where we grew up being told we could have everything we wanted, however, we are quickly realizing that having everything does not bring us lasting joy and instead burns us out. I am here to help individuals minimize their life to invest their time and energy into what truly matters. When working with me, you’ll find that my style is exploratory and extremely action-oriented while being genuine, honest, and humorous. My passion lies in working with individuals who are exploring who they are, where they come from, what they are passionate about, and where they want to go.

Trauma, anxiety, and addiction can make you feel stuck. The most important step towards healing is to address the unresolved emotion inside you. Healing requires feelings. Acceptance slowly dissolves pain. When we function from the fear and scarring of our trauma, the cycles continue until we learn how to transmute that energy into love. I apply a Holistic approach that integrates physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual forms of well-being, addressing the “whole” self. Through a holistic framework tailored to your unique needs, the goal is to support you develop a deeper understanding of the self on all these levels.

I’ve spent most of my 30+ years in private practice working with clients on issues related to gender identity. Until recently, transitioning was strictly thought of in binary terms: Male-to-Female (MtF), Female-to-Male (FtM). Today, thankfully, we have evolved to include gender non-binary models. Maybe, you identify as “trans,” “non-binary,” or some other term denoting gender variance. Or, perhaps, you’re the parent of a child that identifies this way. Putting labels aside, for the moment, the journey can be challenging and self-acceptance is key. We all long to be loved, but the love must come from within, too.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviors to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Santa Monica or for a Santa Monica ACT therapist these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counselors.
