My focus is to empower individuals, couples , and families experiencing depression, anxiety, communication difficulties, infidelity, addictions and co-dependency, or facing vulnerable life transitions.
Are you tired of hiding your pain while trying to fulfil your daily responsibilities? Is anxiety or depression keeping you from living the life that you once envisioned? Are you going through a difficult life transitions or experiencing conflict in your relationships? If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you are not alone. Life has many turns and detours, and we often feel hopeless, lost, and confused. Because we tend to isolate when feeling helpless or depressed, our lack of support aggravates the way we feel. I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your story. I’m here to listen!

I have developed a giftedness in supporting people through their relationship questions, whether it's in the dating process or contemplating divorce. I support people through the hard questions about their relationships and provide the right questions and feedback to help people determine what is "theirs" (read, change-able), and what is not "theirs", and ways to effectively cope with what they can't change.

Navigating life and relationships can be challenging! Nothing is perfect. Life is messy. Relationships are complex. Outcomes are uncertain. Each one of us is craving authentic love & we are seeking to have others care for us the way we most deeply desire. The couples I work with learn where their relational wounds originated and how to truly show up for one another in the most loving + healing ways. They do this by identifying what does and does not work in their relationship. They work together to create loving experiences where they are finally able to feel seen, heard, and understood by one another.

Couples communication and relationship concerns are my passion.
Previously employed at SpaceX as their in-house psychotherapist, I provide step-by-step guidance on how to stop wasting valuable time and energy on things you cannot control. Through the latest neuroscience research, I extend knowledge and concrete exercises that build healthy and resilient neuropathways. I tailor each session to practice how to be present to each new experience, instead of holding onto the past and focusing too much on the future. I create a comforting space for deep introspection and self awareness for you to reinvent yourself for ultimate success in all areas of life.

My 30+ years of experience as a psychologist and psychoanalyst, working with adults, adolescents, children and couples , has given me an appreciation for the complexities of human experience.
It seems that whenever, and in whatever ways we are suffering, we have become stuck in a pattern that reflects a limited sense of ourselves, having lost track of who we are meant to be. Through use of a safe and supportive therapeutic environment, together we find ways to create a greater sense of wholeness and inner freedom.

I welcome individuals, couples , and families who want someone with a warm, non-judgmental, empathetic, and collaborative style.
You just want to feel better. Trauma has turned you into someone you don’t even recognize. You’re constantly on edge and can’t sleep. If sleep does come, it’s often restless and filled with nightmares. You lash out at the people you love most and then feel tremendous guilt and shame; no one understands what’s going on with you. Or maybe you stuff the hurt, pain, and disappointment deep inside where no one knows or sees it. You know how to put on a good face for everyone else. The emptiness and loneliness seem unbearable. Or maybe this describes your loved one who you can’t seem to reach no matter how hard you try.

What type of Laguna 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 Laguna 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.
