My experience in DBT, CBT, ACT , and Motivational Interviewing informs my evidence-based approach.
My job is to provide a non-judgmental, supportive environment to help you find balance so you can start feeling like yourself again. Whether you're going through a tough life transition, struggling in relationships or wanting to let go of unhealthy habits, we can take steps forward together. Our sessions may involve diary cards or other homework to help you reach your goals faster. I also like to encourage mindfulness practices and creative expression when indicated.

By examining our triggers, emotions and beliefs, we become aware of why we act the way we do and how we can substitute our unwanted behaviours for those that are more positive and beneficial for us and the people we interact with.
I believe you have the power and ability to change what you don't want; the question is, "are you willing?" your life is a result of choices and circumstances. Make a different choice, and you'll get a different result. You have the right to say "no" to what you don't want, and you have the right to say "yes" to what you do want. It's okay to tell yourself you're enough as is, it's okay to tell yourself that you are worthy of someone else's time, it's okay to tell yourself that you deserve happiness. And it's okay to be unapologetically yourself.

I am also intensively trained in Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and Motivational Interviewing.
In my mind, the ideal psychologist is validating, transparent, practical, and experienced. As both a board certified CBT and DBT therapist, I teach tangible tools to get "unstuck" based on scientific research within a nonjudgmental, warm, environment. My hope is to help you move toward the life you want and create some distance from the thoughts and behaviors that might get in your way. My goal isn't only to help you feel better, but to holistically live better. I really enjoy working with college and graduate students, people pursuing life changes (such as career, relationship), and individuals facing medical problems.

The act of revealing oneself fully to another and still being accepted may be the major vehicle of therapeutic help.
The benefit of Psychodynamic Therapy is the versatility in its application to the many things one can struggle with in life. This may be the right approach for you if you are looking for relief from a struggle with isolation, loss, meaninglessness, painful choices, emotion dysregulation, anxiety, depression, disordered eating behaviors, relationship issues, life-transition difficulties, trauma, grief. I believe here-and -now is the major source of therapeutic alliance; what is happening here and now during the therapeutic hour, and I appreciate the uniqueness of each client’s inner world.

To be 'human' is such a simple and yet such a deep and miraculous concept. Suffering is a natural part of human experience and emotional avoidance is one of the main causes of psychological problems. Avoiding negative emotions may bring you short term relief but in the long term it will end up with pain. When we accept a negative emotion, it tends to lose its destructive power. Therapy is a healing journey where the alliance between client and therapist plays an extremely important role in the process of acceptance .

Through mindfulness practices, I initially help clients accept and meet themselves where they are right now. Becoming aware and finding acceptance of what is happening now is the first step to making realistic changes aligned with each individual's truth and values. I assist clients in finding their own wisdom and making different choices to loosen the grip of past conditioning. Clients will move at a slow steady pace for long term sustainable solutions that meet individual needs. These tools work specifically well with anyone struggling with anxiety, perfectionism, relationship issues, and depression.

The treatment approach that is most effective for OCD is Exposure and Response Prevention, ACT and Cognitive Restructuring.
Do you suffer from unwanted OCD thoughts and anxiety? Do you worry about bad things happening to you or those you love? Maybe you are having thoughts that you have harmed someone or may harm someone in the future. Perhaps you fear that you will become contaminated or that you will be responsible for a tragedy. Do you wash your hands excessively or check things like door locks or the stove? Or do you avoid things like knives, public restrooms, or anything that might trigger your fearful thoughts? OCD thoughts can take any form, and there is successful treatment available.

Our work together will be based on evidence-based treatments (meaning, there's research to show they work) such as: mindfulness, DBT, ACT , Compassion Focused Therapy, and Trauma Informed Yoga.
You're putting one foot in front of the other and you still feel lost, stuck, or overwhelmed by events and emotions in your life. Or, perhaps it's become hard to tackle the day-to-day and you're longing to reconnect with the person you used to be. Maybe you feel caught in the past or tangled up in the future, disconnected from all that your life has to offer in this moment. Whether you know exactly how you want your life to shift as a result of being in therapy, or, you know only that you want to feel better than you do now, there is the possibility of living the life that feels best for you.

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 Beverly Hills or for a Beverly Hills 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.
