People who choose traditional methods are often not able to make significant progress even after years of therapy because they focus on symptoms and coping/suppressing/denying their emotions. My clients tried EMDR, talk therapy, CBT, and others but continued to struggle to resolve their anger, sadness, fear, numbness, negative self talk, broken relationships and isolation. I use legal psychedelic medicines (cannabis and ketamine) with a patent pending somatic processing technique (SLIP) to facilitate the healing of deep emotional, attachment, and core belief wounds. Most, within 3 months are living the best lives they ever have.

I provide psychotherapy to couples, individuals and families, of diverse ethnicities and backgrounds, who are motivated to self awareness, authenticity and curiosity. I work with clients who desire new coping strategies, in reaching their short and long term goals. Every relationship has a negative cycle, that inhibits a secure bond. I will help you learn to recognize and navigate the conflict within yourself, and in your relationships.

You know yourself better than anyone. You know your challenges, your situation, your relationships...of course you do, you're the one living it. You're just trying to find someone that can help you out of this rough patch. And now with these pandemic changes and social challenges, you may be feeling stuck, anxious, stressed out more than usual, and it is really starting to take its toll on you. That makes sense. I know it might be hard to see this right now, but there is hope. This fear and discomfort you are feeling could become the push you need to make those new changes you've been thinking about...

I believe that our problems don't define us - how we handle them does. You may feel lost because life may not have unfolded as planned, which triggers anxiety, depression, or overwhelming grief. However, with a bit of time and self-reflection, it's entirely possible to build or rebuild a life that is different from what you envisioned. I believe we possess innate strengths derived from early life experiences that shaped us, and I see therapy as a collaborative space to build on those qualities so that you can live the life you dream of living.

Sometimes it is hard to know which way to go. You can get caught up in the same routine daily as you balance school, work, friends, family, and relationships. You may often attempt to escape your emotions that build up while managing heavy caseloads and expectations. You may scroll through social media platforms, watch people get engaged or married, have children, and travel world-leading "dream" jobs. You may think to yourself – when will it be my turn? Here’s the truth: you aren’t some other person. You are you, and you deserve to live the best life possible.

I treat children, teens, and young adults struggling with depression, anxiety, ADHD, trauma, emotional regulation, grief, and more. Some clients, especially teen boys, favor confiding in a male therapist. My integrative approach draws from a combination of practices including mindfulness-based interventions, psychodynamic therapy, CBT, and somatic practice which focuses on the mind body connection to help my clients cope with their issues, increase self-esteem, and develop emotional regulation and resiliency. In younger children, I use play therapy to facilitate communication and gain a deeper understanding of their needs.

As a kid, you color with reckless abandon. You show up as you are & at some point, vulnerability & authenticity becomes more difficult to attain as life unfolds. Sometimes, we’re dealt terrible cards with no guidance on how to play our hand. Our identities become enmeshed in the tragedies that we have experienced & those who have harmed us. I want to help you &/or your loved ones reconnect in a world that makes it hard to reach out & thrive by being a bridge, connecting you to the pieces of yourself that may have wandered while you were trying to survive.

Having had a prolific 25-year career in the entertainment industry, I can personally understand what contributes to depression, anxiety, and a compromised self-esteem. Through talk therapy, a perception shift and changing the narrative we tell ourselves, I believe we are all capable of having the life we deserve. We don't have to be defined by our past, our fears or that negative self talk. My approach to therapy is one of complete honesty, directness and a little sarcasm/humor when appropriate. I believe we are all capable of having the life we want, getting out of our own way, and getting closer to our goals.

Are you a multicultural couple wanting to set boundaries, discuss power and privilege, and improve communication; a Black woman professional overwhelmed by stress and trauma; a young adult desiring to develop your racial identity? I look forward to joining you on the path towards greater understanding and acceptance. My mental health and wellness approach centers on compassionate collaboration and direct truth-telling, and much of our work will challenge traditional ways of existing and relating. I value empathy, justice, and racial equity and believe in owning the impact of our words and actions rather than our intentions.

“We grow through what we have gone through” Let’s be honest, life is tough, especially when trying to maintain a work/life balance and forget all the pain we have experienced in the past. Black men and women have their own unique set of challenges, but one commonality is the societal pressures, the weight of expectations, and the layers of individual and generational traumas that leave us confused, hurt, scared, and seeking answers. Despite these feelings you are experiencing, always remember, you still have the ability to control your own path even when things appear out of control.

Mental health struggles are real! Black women, men, and elite athletes especially have their own set of unique pressures that add to the emotional distress we often battle in silence. You need empathy and support when you become emotionally fragile, but because you’re expected to be strong, your emotional needs go overlooked and unattended. You try to deal with depression, anxiety, & being overwhelmed, alone, while still showing up as stable. Life is not easy, but remember, it’s okay to pause and seek the emotional support you need, so that you can heal from within, and achieve the mental wellness, wholeness, & balance you deserve.

My commitment as a therapist is to assist individuals in experiencing better relationships not only with significant others, family and friends but with themselves in order to have a satisfying and fulfilling lived experience.

What type of Hermosa Beach 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 Hermosa Beach?
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.
