I believe the pathways to healing are through our intimate relationships with each other. But because few of us have experienced what it feels like to reach toward the soft embrace of another, and also be held, loved, and received just as we are, how we see and what we tell ourselves in response to life's struggles can become distorted. We develop false senses of self and of others; we wrestle with depression, anxiety, and obsessional thinking. We fall prey to addictions, and we struggle in our relationships, finding ourselves in patterns that bring conflict and disconnection.

I am interested in your unique life journey, your struggles and your deepest longings. Therapy helps transform limiting patterns that keep us stuck and unable to experience life in a more fulfilling and nourishing way. With a compassionate and collaborative presence, I support others in reconnecting with themselves, deepening relationships, and feeling aligned with their true nature. Uncovering obstacles and connecting with inner guidance helps alleviate suffering and makes room for new possibilities and enlivening choices to emerge.

Whether we're struggling with crushing anxiety, disordered eating, self-destructive patterns, or are looking to get into (or out of) a relationship, this work is about liberation from the noise in our heads by transforming our relationship to it. Through a therapeutic lens, I work with clients to alchemize original wounds into assets, challenge cognitive distortions, identify core confusions and intervene unconscious, fear-based belief systems. No mind hacks, no mantras, just compassionate straight-talk that will demand your grit, your courage, and most likely a sense of humor.

As a third-culture kid, I grew up speaking Russian, Mandarin Chinese, and English. Rooted in the Humanistic philosophy, I approach my clients with unconditional positive regard. My clients are youths of all ages, adults desiring adaptability and help with boundary setting, multicultural couples desiring to identify and communicate core values, and blended families. My career in classical music and my ongoing work in the film soundtrack recording industry gives me first-hand knowledge about the struggle of individual artists. I am fulfilled by helping others navigate interpersonal and the power dynamics of the entertainment industry.

We all deserve to feel seen, included, and understood, no matter who we are. As an LGBTQ+ affirmative therapist, my aim is to help you better see yourself in all aspects of who you are, feel more included in relation to those around you, and experience a greater understanding of how you fit into a wider world. Maybe you’re exploring your non-binary gender for the first time. Maybe you’re supporting a transgender family member or partner. Maybe you’re working through relationship challenges as an LGBTQ+ person. Together, we can explore what “seen,” “included,” and “understood” mean for you and how you can achieve them.

I view therapy as a safe space where clients can feel empowered to share their stories as they experience them. My primary goal as a clinician is not to “fix” you, my goal is to support you on your internal journey as you cultivate the skills necessary to grow and heal in a conducive manner. My function as a clinician is to help clients navigate and dissect their stories as a way to help them understand the meaning behind their experiences. I always encourage my clients to come to therapy as they are and we will begin the therapeutic process from there. I DO NOT work with MINORS and FAMILIES.

I am an LMFT specializing in the treatment of children, adolescents, and adults with Autism and other Special Needs diagnoses. I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT is a 3rd wave behavioral treatment that uses mindfulness practice) to treat both the individuals with special needs, their parents, families, partners, and siblings who are having difficulty coping with the stress brought on by these diagnoses. (Also, in lieu of the heightened levels of Anxiety and Depression due to Covid-19, I am seeing clients that feel affected mentally by the pandemic.)

As a creative woman, you struggle with feeling confident. You know you want to make a change but you’re not sure how. Maybe you’re struggling with deeply rooted issues that make it hard to move forward in life, or how other people perceive you. Perhaps low self-worth makes it difficult to express yourself creatively. You worry that the way you feel about yourself keeps you from living the life you really want. And you don’t feel like the kind of woman you want to be. As a creative, you feel like you're failing and the confidence you have in your relationships is eroding.

Life can be overwhelming at times because so much is happening to us and around us everyday. Navigating your way through all of it, in the healthiest way possible, can sometimes seem harder than the challenges themselves. Maintaining your peace, living unapologetically, setting boundaries, processing your emotions, owning your truths and overcoming one obstacle after another can all sound like easy tasks, but we’ve all struggled with them. I’m here to invite you into a safe and brave space of recognizing and resolving the challenges you face, while we discover your strengths. The time for radical change and healing is always now.

What type of Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles?
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.
