Many of my clients come in with anxiety, depression, learning, relationship, identity and self-esteem issues, as well as issues around addiction.
Are you concerned about a child or adolescent that is struggling? Are they shutting down and sad? Worried or mad? Are they having trouble functioning at school or with friends? How about at home and with their family? Has something in their life changed? Maybe they need a little more support at this particular time... Therapy can help. I work with individuals of all ages, couples, and families.

I offer client-centered therapy in Eagle Rock and in Old Town Pasadena. Guiding principles are: that one always remains the expert on one's own life, that people have the internal resources to overcome their "stuck-ness," and that a collaborative therapeutic relationship is the key to encouraging positive change and more meaningful living. While I deal with a wide range of client issues, most of my clients are high-functioning or gifted intellectually and/or artistically. I use Rogerian, Experiential Focusing, Gestault, Attachment Theory, and Existential concepts and methods, working with clients to help them maximize their personal freedom and growth.

I believe that nobody should be resigned to a lifetime of suffering from anxiety, unresolved trauma, feeling lost, stuck, disconnected from your partner, or like your emotions are out of control. This strife can keep you from living a fulfilling life. I have seen so many clients become tremendously empowered, less emotionally reactive, and confident in their decision-making once they have a greater understanding of themselves, their histories, and their strengths. I'm passionate about helping you gain clarity, as once these changes are taking place, my clients begin enjoying more satisfying relationships with loved ones.

Something isn't quite right lately! Things feel off and it's time for a change. Whether it's creatively rebooting, overcoming imposter syndrome, feeling more resilient, or navigating a new transition there's a way to change the patterns that aren't working anymore. When stress hits or we feel stuck we tend to revisit coping that doesn't serve us well. We may feel motivated to change, but lost as to the next steps. I work collaboratively with clients who are curious about their struggles and eager to collaboratively problem solve. We work together to uncover the patterns that aren't working anymore and explore solutions.

Being resilient was easy when you were younger . Now the older you get the less “high functioning” you feel. The life you've lived thus far has been ok, but your coping styles can only do so much. Never were you given the chance to talk through traumatic events as a kid. Sure you had a loving family, but emotions and feelings wasn’t a topic of conversation. Being raised to be strong was the message. No one showed weakness, no one had the time for a breakdown. Now when you're down its like you've been conditioned to suck it up. When you cry easily, and become emotional, you bottle it up until overwhelmness breaks you down.

While our higher mind may "know" a lot , our lower mind can attack us with anxiety, keeping us from internal peace and fulfillment in life, work, and love. Emotional suffering is perpetuated when anxiety and shame prevent us from getting the help we need. My approach is dynamic and involves somatic work around identifying and regulating anxiety, along with identifying what defense mechanisms are keeping you disempowered and stuck in self-defeating patterns. I work in an intensive way, meaning that you may begin to feel relief within a few sessions. Deeper work can continue on a basis that makes sense for you.
