A life transition experience can be positive or negative, planned or unexpected. Some transitions happen without warning, and they may be quite dramatic, as in cases of accidents, death, divorce, job loss, or serious illness. Other life transitions come from positive experiences such as getting married, going away to college, starting a new job, moving to a new city. Even though events like these are usually planned and anticipated, they can be just as life-altering as the unexpected events. Whether positive or negative, life transitions cause us to leave behind the familiar and force us to adjust to new ways of living.

You may be seeking therapy for many reasons, and it can be overwhelming to begin the process of therapy. As your therapist, I will engage you in becoming comfortable with exploring your inner self. My work with you is aimed at increasing your awareness of processes that lead to suffering and ultimately increasing your enjoyment and satisfaction in life. We will explore what is working for you and where you get stuck, how you relate to others and yourself, and your coping mechanisms, which all affect how you're feeling on a daily basis. Learning to understand and flow with your emotions will probably be a focus in our work together.

Do you feel like you are struggling to manage the pace of life around you? Do you feel overwhelmed, can’t make decisions and often shut down or freeze? You’ve been described by others as ‘too sensitive’ and you worry that they are right - internally there is a battle with self-confidence and perfectionism. These feelings cause you to miss opportunities at work or school and wreak havoc in your relationships. At the end of the day, you feel tired, self-critical and blame yourself for not being able to keep up.

We all go through times that are stressful and overwhelming. Certain behaviors and aspects of our personalities can cause us trouble as well. Whether it be work problems, relationship issues, illness or just a vague feeling of unhappiness or irritability, seeing a therapist can help. As a clinical social worker I have been trained to assess the complex picture of your life and determine where changes can be made. As partners in the process of therapy we can address emotional, mental, physical and practical areas of your life that can be modified or healed to bring about relief and fulfillment.

Self-care! Ha! Sounds lovely in theory but it’s not happening in the real world. I work with teens, young professionals, and parents who are high achieving perfectionists - folks who are expected to get it done...and done well. On the outside, you are driven, motivated, and happy but on the inside your loud inner critic has you never feeling “good enough.” You know this inner critic - the one that compares yourself to others, is stressed all the time, terrified of failing, and afraid to disappoint others. Yet, you want to stop overthinking, overworking, and most importantly you want to stop being so mean to yourself.

We’re entering an interesting phase of the reopening of our city and our lives. There are so many facets of our lives that will permanently bear the imprint of 2020, which in some ways will be sobering, perhaps, but will also be potentially exciting. Some things will change for the better. Working from home will now be a known quantity for employers, which will open up many people’s lives to a better balance. Improvisation and flexibility are the new norm. How’s that for an expanded repertoire that we have all had to embrace? Extraordinary, really.

Are you entering a new stage of life, or thinking of making a major change in your life? Are you unclear about the choices available to you? Are you feeling anxious and stressed out about the changes? Marriage, relationship challenges, divorce, graduation, career change, children leaving home, being a caregiver to parents, retirement, death of a spouse, as well as your own aging are all changes that increase stress and can be anxiety producing. It's much easier going through changes when you have an objective professional who can be your ally, trusted advisor, and guide through the process.

Do you struggle with not feeling good enough? Does it seem like everyone else has it together when it comes to "life stuff" like work and relationships but you? Are you utterly exhausted dealing with these emotions that you can't even pinpoint, let alone understand? What you may need is time set aside SOLELY for you in a safe and judgment-free space to process these experiences and problem-solve next steps. My belief is that mental health is about tapping into your resiliency as an empowered human being and believing in your ability to create the change you want to see in your life.

Psychologically speaking, why do we do what we do? Where are we coming from . . . what are we moving toward . . . and how are we proceeding? Do our impulses, our actions or reactions, our habits, our thoughts, judgments, interpretations, or even our intentions support or lead to what we imagine to be our "happiness?" I work with individuals, couples, and families in short- and long-term psychotherapy. Some clients prefer brief "solution-focused" therapy to help them with specific short-term issues, while others want to work more deeply toward longer-lasting growth and transformation.

Setbacks, roadblocks, and defeats can all be interpreted as obstacles standing between where you are now and where you want to be. I like to think that each one represents an invitation for you to challenge yourself to have a fuller, more satisfying life. And here's the truth: you are, and always have been, whole and complete.

I provide my clients with a safe and professional environment in which to explore areas of concern, difficulty, and strength. It is my belief that there are times in life when we feel stuck, or are experiencing suffering, and need support in order to move through and/or change patterns that are no longer of use. Sometimes it is necessary to access guidance from a professional outside of the current situation in order to assist in gaining perspective. Through this collaboration, it is possible to gain insight and awareness that allows one to move forward with awareness and options.

I think therapeutic relationships work best when there is a foundation of emotional safety and a balance of active engagement and moments to rest and take in. As a therapist I find that so often our earliest relationships teach us what we can or cannot seek help for, what is okay or not okay to feel, and how we can or cannot depend on others. These experiences leave an invisible imprint on our lives that can play out indirectly, leaving their origins obscured. One of the ways insight is helpful is that it makes us aware of this imprint, allowing us to have agency in moments where we might otherwise behave in old, unhelpful ways.

What type of Culver City mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Culver City?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
