"My practice orientation with clients integrates the power of our mind-body-spirit connection toward healing wounded areas within ourselves. I specifically help individuals that have been victims of narcissistic abuse in their early childhood relationships or current adult relationships heal this very real trauma to their minds and bodies. Focus is toward strengthening adaptive, rational and positive thoughts and behaviors instead of living from fear and trauma. Narcissism undermines growth, strength, health and productive ways of living. Meditation, creative visualization/affirmation skills, breathing exercises, role-playing, voice-dialogue and gestalt methods are employed for moving stagnant energy in our bodies. ."

I can help you identify and reach the goals that are important to you. Moving forward in the midst of feeling depressed, anxious, or sad can seem difficult, even overwhelming.

"In Westwood near UCLA, I specialize in anxiety, depression, trauma, addictions, eating disorders, breast cancer and relationships. I provide psychotherapy for adults and children in a safe, supportive environment where we will explore behaviors and emotions that hamper healthy self-expression and relationships. By identifying personal goals we can gain a better understanding of the repetitive patterns that block these goals. Often coping strategies from childhood are no longer useful. By becoming mindful of these patterns, we can begin to let these patterns go and begin to form new patterns that will move us in the direction we want."
