Do you struggle with trauma, relationships, and anxiety, or worry that you might be beyond help? Give me a call--I've been there and, through my own healing, as well as extensive training and experience, I'm uniquely fit to help others. I specialize in healing complex trauma, compulsive disorders, and borderline personality disorder, using EMDR, DBT, and Brainspotting to achieve tangible results quickly. My clients often tell me that no other therapist has helped them in the way that I have, and that they finally have the tools they need to let go of trauma and thrive.

The foundation of my therapeutic practice includes meeting clients with empathy, warmth, and authenticity. I strive to help clients gain insight around the ways that the past impacts the present, develop tools to navigate life mindfully, and build towards their vision of a life worth living. I focus on developing a collaborative relationship with clients in which they feel validated, respected, and honored in their own unique journey in life. My goal is to provide a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to begin the process of personal exploration and growth.

My approach to therapy involves moving towards collaborative change and using scientifically supported treatments to help clients achieve the change they want to see in their lives, whether it be emotional, behavioral, in their thinking, or in their relationships. Because our past informs our present, treatment may involve clients both exploring past experiences along with working towards in-the-moment changes to help accomplish their desired goals.

I can imagine the strain that sheltering in place must be putting on your relationship. Working on your communication skills and intimate connection is challenging enough when you can go to your favorite yoga class when you need a break - but when you can’t leave the house - it can feel unbearable.

The sun goes down and you're desperate for sleep. Unfortunately, this is when your thoughts speed up. You're constantly thinking. You think about how much you think. Your mind replays the day's interactions with others, blaming yourself, and reflecting on how people have hurt you. You're desperate for a break from the constant anxiety, but don't know how to find the peace you so badly want.

Regardless of the circumstances, my ideal participant is one who has any amount of motivation and hope that things can be different in their life. I struggled for many years with a substance abuse disorder (specifically opiates among many other substances) that caused wreckage in my life on so many levels. I can empathize with the human that is using and does not know how to stop. I believe in your power, your resilience, and your spirit. I have helped people with complex mental health issues that include bipolar with psychotic features, depression, anxiety, and a range of substance use disorders & addiction.

The process of finding that right fit of a therapeutic relationship in which you feel comfortable can be overwhelming. Whether you have a specific issue, or you are experiencing discontentment and are unsure about what needs to change, the experience of psychotherapy can be rich and valuable - something most could benefit from at some point in their lives. I create a welcoming and accepting environment in which you are able to identify what needs to change and work toward solutions using practical strategies to provide coping, understanding of your thought processes and support for whatever you are going through.

I earned my Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology and specialized in Depth Psychology. I am passionate about helping my clients on their journey of self-discovery, who are experiencing life hardships or feeling stuck. I believe the therapeutic process is a collaboration and teamwork between the psychotherapist and the client, and self-awareness and growth are the natural results of effective psychotherapy. In my opinion, there are many reasons why we become who we are. Our genetics, biology, neurology, upbringing, relationships, life experiences, and the society we were raised in are all important in shaping who we have become.

Often, we seek therapy when we feel overwhelmed—by anxiety, depression, a life transition or a difficult relationship. Having studied and treated maladaptive thoughts and behaviors, I work to create a confidential space where you can regain your balance, gain insight, and ultimately become more confident and secure. I utilize a thoughtful mix of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness practices, solution-focused techniques, and EMDR Therapy (specialized trauma therapy) to pave way for your healing.

When someone is diagnosed with a serious illness, they have no idea what it means for their life, their future, their family, or their career. They have endless questions and nowhere to get answers. Just navigating the medical world feels like learning a whole new language in a foreign city. There are so many life changes, it can feel extremely overwhelming.

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.
