About

These are challenging times and much that we’ve taken for granted - health, finances, career, life dreams - may suddenly feel elusive and precarious. I dedicate my work to helping you to identify and challenge your obstacles, whether from current turmoil (e.g. trauma, grief, covid) relationship, or ongoing existential themes such as finding or redefining your life purpose. Trained in Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) and Interpersonal Therapies (IPT) therapies, I also draw from traditional psychodynamic theory (i.e. attachment and early family dynamics) and mindfulness, as appropriate, to guide you toward your desired change.
The therapeutic relationship is all about collaborating on your identified areas of change. You and I will clarify your goals and develop awareness of resources. I will support your progress through setbacks towards transformation. To be listened to without judgement can liberate you from shame and reconnect you to your own core values, strengths and dreams.
Wondering where to begin? Call or email for a free consult. Please note that I temporarily conduct all sessions via telehealth (video or phone). I hope to resume shortly with face-to-face sessions from my sunny and sea-breezy office, just a short stroll from Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade.) Stay healthy and hang in there!
