I work collaboratively with adults, couples and teens to help increase insight and, most importantly, to create the changes you are looking for in your life.
Sometimes life feels overwhelming, or we feel stuck, or maybe we just wish we had more enjoyment in our lives. Perhaps it seems like everything "should" be okay but there's a nagging feeling that something is wrong. Therapy can help address these issues. I believe we all have the desire and capacity for positive change and growth. My approach builds upon this belief and incorporates creative and practical tools tailored to your unique circumstances.

We partner with top specialists to be able to provide what we call a Living MRI, a 360 degree view of each person we help.
With over 20 years of professional experience and after years of private practice, I left the therapy world when I discovered the opportunity to advocate for individual and families. As a Therapeutic Consultant, my primary goal was to help individuals find the best fit for interventions for mental and physical health care. I soon discovered that the best fit can't happen without good diagnostics first. A team approach is the heart of our program, uncovering what is truly wrong, or right, about your body, mind, spirit, and lifestyle. Our concierge evaluation program provides one-on-one diagnostics and world-class care and support.

I work with individual adults, couples , and families using an integrative, strength-based, culturally aware approach.
As a therapist, I am committed to empowering clients to live their best life, have meaningful and loving relationships, and most importantly, in the words of Virginia Satir, "help them have stars in their eyes and truly feel their own value." At times, as we move through the different stages of our life, we find ourselves stuck due to our unproductive internal dialogue of shame and guilt, the need to be perfect, and the daily attempts to be who the rest of the world wants us to be. This leads us to feeling broken and unable to love ourselves or truly connect with others.

What type of El Segundo 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in El Segundo?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
