Are you struggling with a traumatic experience, unsure how to resolve its effect on your life? Looking to improve a relationship? Maybe, like most parents, you want the best for your child and seek a way to give them a little help. Or perhaps you want to make a change, so you're exploring why you think and behave as you do. People seek therapy for many reasons, but almost everyone does so to relieve some kind of pain. I believe relief and healing can be found through the therapeutic relationship.

Many people get to a point in their lives when they feel stuck. Friends and family who used to be able to help are no longer able to, or don’t know how. During these times, it can be beneficial to have a relationship that is different, one in which you can share honestly without feeling judged or misunderstood and, in turn, be asked questions that can enhance insight and spur positive change. Welcome to therapy! As a therapist, I am welcoming, compassionate and curious. Therapy can be hard, so my goal is to help you to feel safe and accepted while engaged in a journey that will naturally involve some discomfort.

Anxiety, depressive feelings, afraid of where the future may lead, or trying to figure out how to get over initial humps are common, but may also feel emotionally and physically draining. Therapy should be thoughtful, supportive, and provide a sense of safety for you to be yourself. This is the environment I look to create so that you can gain a deeper sense of self, and explore old thinking patterns and behaviors that may be preventing you from moving forward. I can offer a fresh perspective to help you re-frame those negative thoughts in a more productive direction.

**Currently accepting new clients** Are you struggling in your life and feel alone? Are you suffering from isolation and stress? Are you ready for change? In my practice, I believe a successful therapeutic relationship is created in partnership with each client to foster safety, compassion, and growth. An effective therapy process provides space for transforming your pain and distress into a capacity for stronger coping skills, more satisfying relationships, and a more authentic sense of self. When a person actively engages the world in a new way it can lead to greater awareness, self-confidence, joy, and a more centered self.

"Words," to quote Albus Dumbledore, "are our most inexhaustible source of magic." Beyond the constraints of ordinary language, speech reveals. A therapist is someone trained to listen in a special way. Not only do I listen in an empathic, safe, and non-judgmental fashion, I also look at challenges in objective ways to help you address that which prevents you from living fully.

My approach to therapy is rooted in a belief that change is possible. Most of my clients come to me because something in their lives isn't working. Whether the problem is familial, romantic, professional, emotional, or even existential, I find it usually comes down to a matter of relationship. How are we relating to the things that cause us to suffer? When we understand these relationships and the parts we play in them, we are free to make different choices, and to experience our lives, ourselves, and our loves in richer, more fulfilling ways.

As a clinical psychologist I spend time studying, in an attempt to understand the problem(s) that an individual client would like to address. I focus on a client's strengths, capabilities and goals in order to find understanding, meaning and/or a solution to the problem(s) that blocks or interferes with their happiness. Working collaboratively, I help clients increase their awareness of certain triggers and psychosomatic reactions to the stress that causes unsafe and harmful coping mechanisms.

Welcome to my practice. I have about 15 years of clinical experience and have been featured on NBC/KCAL/HLN as an expert psychologist. I work primarily with men who have hit “rock bottom” and would like help getting up. These men are often in crisis when we first meet. The issues I address are typically related to unhealthy sexual behaviors, infidelity, financial recklessness, gambling, drugs/alcohol, dishonesty/lying, and relational conflicts. My therapy approach is a combination of psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, and the 12-Step recovery model. I also share insight from my own painful but redemptive recovery journey.

We all have parts of our lives that we struggle with or wish were different - a complicated relationship, work-related stress or a difficult transition. You may be feeling stuck, uncertain or overwhelmed. In challenging moments, it's important to remember we don't have to go through it alone. I create a warm and empathic environment while encouraging open exploration of your experiences and emotions. My hope is that in this process you'll come to understand yourself in a more meaningful way and feel empowered to make positive changes in your life.

Marriage and Family Therapy is a second career for me and one that I was drawn to by a deeply held conviction that people are capable of change. My passion for therapy is founded on the belief that we do not have to be bound by our wounds or fears. While these are important parts of our journey, they do not have to define who we are nor who we can become.

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.
