Therapy seeks to address the patterns and unresolved material unique to each of us which hampers our ability to connect meaningfully with others and limits our capacity for joy. I work with couples and individuals looking to deepen their understanding of themselves and work collaboratively to cultivate curiosity, authenticity, honesty, self-compassion, and the ability to tolerate difficult feelings. I use a combination of gestalt therapy, psychodynamic therapy, relational therapy, EMDR, and somatic interventions when working with individuals. My couple’s work is mainly inspired by family systems theory and imago therapy.

Hi, My name is Steve. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and addiction coach living in Los Angeles. I have always been curious about life and people. As I reflect on my lived experiences I have come to understand that connecting with others in a meaningful way has been the thing that has brought me the most fulfillment and joy. A very old friend recently told me that, having known me over the years, they felt that the thing that was most important to me was freedom. This resonated as true to me and I believe it informs my work as a therapist and coach.

If you have relationship conflict, feel depressed, anxious, or have trauma, you need a therapist who is both knowledgeable and experienced. In my many years practicing I've had the pleasure of teaching at USC, writing, and helping individuals, couples, and families who've had vastly different problems. Because everyone is different, I adapt to your particular needs. I listen and I partner with you to accomplish what works best for you as I know a wide array of treatment approaches. In fact, I have taught them. I think you will find me warm, open and friendly, and that I have a very broad knowledge base to draw upon.

While we are given instruction on how to drive, how to work, etc., we are rarely given an education on how to cope with the stressors of our daily lives. Through understanding, validation, and support, I help my clients achieve their full potential. By nurturing insight and providing consistent support, my clients have the opportunity to work at their own pace and deal with issues that they feel are preventing them from moving forward. In my practice, I try to provide both emotional support and tools that can be used beyond the therapy session.

Choosing a therapist is an important decision. In my experience, the best therapeutic work happens when there is a strong relationship between you and your therapist. I believe that healing happens when you are able to share your inner world with another person and feel safe and supported doing so. My goal is to create an environment where you feel seen, heard, cared for, and understood. The therapeutic process can be both challenging and rewarding. Processing your experiences in therapy helps to deepen self-awareness, and can positively impact your mood, functioning, and interpersonal relationships.

It's okay to ask for help. In fact, it's brave! We live in a busy and uncertain world with many expectations. Often times people feel like they aren't enough. We spend our days working our hardest to be enough for those around us. You may feel you are not thin enough, a good enough mom, student, partner, employee; the list goes on! But you are enough! Whether you are struggling to navigate adolescence, young adulthood, parenthood, or eating disorder recovery, my goal is to create a space for you to feel safe enough to show up as you are and to know that it's okay to not be okay. You can achieve self-acceptance and self-love.

I consider my style to be a delicate balance of easy-going and down-to-business. One of my goals is to create an atmosphere where you can show up as your authentic self. Only then, will we know what path to take in our therapeutic journey. Once we know what path to explore, we will put in the work! Sessions with me are interactive and collaborative. We will approach our session topics with curiosity and explore what you need from the session. I will use interventions and skills from evidence-based practices like CBT and DBT based on your specific needs. These treatment modalities are proven to work!

In a culture that equates your productivity to your self-worth, it can be a challenge to feel comfortable and guilt-free when you choose to take care of yourself. I reject the cultural beliefs that shame us and try to force us to endure, rather than enjoy. Seeking help is a show of strength, there is no shame in it, and you shouldn’t have to “tough it out” on your own or “just get by”. Whatever it is about your relationships, connections, or experiences with intimacy that brought you here deserves attention. I’m interested in helping you feel more like yourself, more alive, and more at ease in the world.

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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Los Angeles?
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.
