I am a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) who values the individuality of each patient and their needs within the context of universal human fears, existential and terrestrial. In other words, if you're tired of the old tapes in your head, we will be able to address this in session. I specialize in addressing anxiety, depression, eating disorders & relationship challenges in individual & couples therapy. I use EMDR as a modality for trauma work combined with humanistic existential psychology, DBT and mindfulness . I trust in the therapeutic process and I'm passionate about facilitating change with my clients.

My approach is gentle yet direct; emphasizing authenticity, empathy and humor (when appropriate) within a safe and relaxed environment . I incorporate the principles of mindfulness and self-compassion in confronting issues such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and patterns of negative thinking. I believe that you enter therapy already equipped for personal transformation. My role is to nurture the emergence of your highest self, and provide support as you begin to trust your innate ability to heal old wounds and discover deep fulfillment. We will work towards embracing imperfection as part of the human experience, and acceptance as the antidote to suffering.

I value Mindfulness and acknowledge that every person is unique.
My goal as a therapist is to create a safe space for you to freely express your thoughts and feelings about life's complexities. Together we will work on making changes to benefit your life. I believe everyone is capable of change, but does not know how or want to put in the work. I want to motivate you to succeed at creating the life that you want. I often tell people that looking for a therapist is like finding the right pair of shoes, sometimes you get lucky on that first try and other times you need to keep looking. Please don't hesitate to call me.

Approaches I use include CBT (linking thoughts, emotions, and behaviors), EMDR (a mind-body approach to healing), and Mindfulness (staying grounded in the present).
I use EMDR to help creative people manage anxiety and heal from trauma. We can begin by addressing the worry, the over-thinking, and the tension. You can learn tools to calm the body and quiet the mind. Then we can address the hurtful memories and internal messages that weigh you down. That’s where we’ll use EMDR - a powerful approach to healing old wounds. If you’re ready to go deep in order to heal, let’s talk. My experience includes working with difficult childhoods/difficult pasts, multicultural, LGBTQ+, and spiritual issues.

I can also help you discover new coping skills which include mindfulness , interpersonal skills, and emotional regulation techniques.
Life can feel impossible to avoid struggling and we often don't feel we have the skills to cope successfully through. Unfortunately, sometimes we don't have all the resources we need for a given situation. Parts of us take on desperate roles trying to help us to survive. This might look like anxiety, depression, PTSD, addiction, and relationship/family issues. I aim to help you process unresolved issues and feelings and find solutions.

You sat down at your computer to find help, but you’ve been sitting there, immobile. Your body and emotions feel numb, almost paralyzed. Even though you’re stuck, you know it’s time to do something different. You’ve tried finding resilience in the things that used to help…but food, music, even relationships leave you feeling unfulfilled. At work, your inner critic shouts, “You’re a fraud!” Living in Los Angeles takes every ounce of energy you’ve got. And what’s the point if you can’t connect to your own inner strength? Is it even possible to have a genuine and joyful relationship with yourself?

You're not crazy. You're not a burden. You're not weak. You're just human. And as such, we're constantly changing and evolving. Life is full of endless transitions, whether that be a departure from a relationship, coping with the death of a loved one, changing career paths, or just learning how to better communicate with those around us. No matter what you might want to work on, therapy gives you the space to not only focus on yourself, but to feel supported in whatever stage of life you find yourself navigating.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.
