Hi, I am a licensed clinical psychologist. I offer a 20 minute free telephone or zoom consultation for you to decide if we are a comfortable therapeutic fit. The relationship between a client and therapist is essential because safety and collaboration facilitates insight and trust and a feeling of non-judgement. My hope is to help guide you with insight and coping strategies to learn new ways to handle situations to the best of your abilities. Therapy can help individuals, couples & families strengthen their connections, improve communication, and develop more secure and fulfilling relationships.

I specialize in anxiety, trauma, PTSD, relationships, career, self-esteem, and auto-immune, pain and other somatic challenges. I offer individual, couples therapy, groups, workshops, and retreats.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Encino, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
