I believe it takes a great deal of courage to contact a therapist for help with a personal or relational problem. I'd like to encourage you along this path of self discovery and relational health. As a Marriage and Family Therapist with over 33 years of experience I have seen the transforming power of a quality therapeutic relationship. If you are facing new and/or difficult life transitions, confusion or painful issues in your meaningful personal or professional relationships or needs for release from troubling moods or limiting personal beliefs, psychotherapy can be of tremendous help to you.

My approach to therapy encompasses warmth, humor, empathy and effective strategies to help you work through barriers that cause you to feel stuck, unfulfilled and disconnected. Our work together will help you generate more insight into your thoughts, feelings and behaviors in order to understand and work through the unconscious processes that are getting in your way. Cultivating a healthy relationship with yourself is the most rewarding investment you can make and I am committed to creating an environment where you feel inspired to make meaningful change.

Feeling stuck? Whether you’ve worked with a few therapists, or have never been to therapy before… if things don’t seem to be improving in your life, it may be time to try something new. Are you looking for someone to help you gain practical, actionable skills, to become more self-aligned, grounded, empowered, and consistently supported with sessions tailored to you and your unique journey rather than getting lost in an often re-traumatizing, pathologizing merry-go-round of disconnected, distracted, rushed, or generic sessions? Then definitely take THIS opportunity for change! This is your season of new beginnings…

You’ve been stuck in “autopilot mode” for a while, but the dissatisfaction has become almost impossible to ignore. It can feel like there’s a voice deep down in your body, screaming at the top of its lungs to be heard, but the idea of acknowledging and confronting your anxieties alone seems impossible to bear. On the outside, it looks like you “have it all together,” but in reality, you spend the entire day in your head, and walk on eggshells to avoid conflict or making others uncomfortable. It may sound surprising, but these could be signs that you are in “survival mode." You may feel stuck or disconnected, but there is hope.

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.

We all feel lost from time to time, but there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve been through my own therapy as a young adult when I was stuck in a bout of anxiety and panic attacks due to childhood trauma. Throughout my years of working with traumatized individuals, I learned first-hand about how childhood trauma can have a strong impact on adulthood. I can help you address unresolved trauma, in order for you to find passion, connection, and purpose in your life.

In my opinion, any successful therapy relationship must first begin with an atmosphere of safety, trust, and mutual understanding of the challenges that lay ahead. Using this as a starting point, I view therapy as an opportunity for my clients to safely explore the self, which involves taking a closer, more intimate look at how one's experience of self impacts and is impacted by the world in which one lives. Ideally, this process involves the development of insight into how one experiences blocks or challenges in the world outside our selves – in relationships, work, academics, or creative pursuits.

Recently, someone asked about my specialty. I paused...I considered rambling off a list of my education, certifications, theoretical orientations, and multiple licenses...all the things that qualified me to be a therapist. But really, my specialty comes down to one thing...the ability to build relationships. I am a firm believer that it is the relationship that you and I build that brings about change, growth, and healing. Just like in life, no two relationships are the same. YOU have the owner's manual of you...I merely help you figure it out...and I do that by building a relationship with authentic you.

Fact is, the past often gets in the way of living life to its fullest. Do you feel emotionally drained, empty inside with thoughts of self-loathing? Maybe you are consumed with shame over memories, behaviors or thoughts you cannot seem to control. Loss of sleep and an overall sense of irritability can overwhelm any sense of normalcy. This is not the real you-but how to get out from under it? Breakthroughs happen... when digging deep one needs an experienced hand to shine a light to help.

How can I find a therapist in Los Angeles?

Search for nearby therapists or counselors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or zip code; or a provider’s name into the search bar. From there, you can filter providers by the issues they treat, cost, insurance, gender, and other factors to find providers who are well-suited to your needs. To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
