Do you feel like you don’t belong anywhere? Maybe you feel like you’re not good enough. Or not queer enough. Maybe you feel like you don’t fit into queer spaces. Are you a teen or young adult wanting to accept your identity but are filled with shame? Are you a queer couple navigating this hetero-centric world? Perhaps you just don’t fit into the box assigned to you by society and family. Maybe you've been trapped by trauma(s) you experienced, anxiety, and/or depression. Maybe you’re a person that just wants to explore who you are. I‘m here to help support you as you begin to explore who you are as your true, authentic self.

It can be hard growing up in Los Angeles and dealing with the intense pressure of school, family and friends. It's also hard trying to be an adult, working to establish one's self and feel comfortable in saying, "This is who I am, this is who I want to be." We all come through this process with different stories, experiences and perspective. I love to work with families and individuals on this journey. I have had over five years of experience working with families during their deepest moments of pain and confusion, joy and growth.

I help stressed-out, overwhelmed, and 'just plain exhausted' professionals, entrepreneurs and athletes, bounce back from anxiety, self-doubt, imposter syndrome, depression and burnout, using mind-body approaches. My mission is to combine the powerful tools of traditional psychotherapy with somatic, movement and mindfulness practices and make them accessible to the peak performers, the over-achievers, the cynics, and the ‘I dont have time for that stuff, I’ve got shit to do’ crew. No stuffy therapy office to visit, no long wait times, just plenty of real talk, tons of fresh perspective, and tangible results.

What's wrong with me, I should have this figured out by now! But no matter what you tell yourself, you can't break free from the stress that's draining you. It pulls your energy in every direction, never caring that there’s only one of you. Meanwhile, your mind is radio-fixed on what could go wrong if you make a mistake, your anxiety growing. You need a break. Time to spend with those you love, where you can catch your breath. Peace to make confident decisions, finally getting ahead at work. The ability to turn down the background noise of your mind, embracing both rest and accomplishment. But how do you get from here to there?

I will be able to help any family who experiences the unwanted visitor of brain disorders. I have worked for years as President of the National Alliance on Mental Illness LA. When a brain disorder kidnaps the brain of a loved one, it kidnaps the entire family in a sea of confusion, chaos, despair, heartache and loss. There are tools to help family members create a healing environment for the loved one. There is emotional help so family members will not be so reactive. There are many resources that may be helpful. Let me help you create space for the illness and move you toward understanding and acceptance. Sharon Dunas, LMFT

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.
