I work with clients dealing with diverse issues: depression, anxiety , self-esteem, relational conflict, identity, parenting, divorce, adoption, and loss due to life transitions.
Therapy is a gift of time and of a safe, supportive space for self-examination. Therapy provides awareness of the choice to shape our lives in meaningful ways. It's a collaborative process between client and therapist facilitating personal growth through exploration of the client's unique beliefs, feelings and behaviors. Pasts influence present realities in ways that are often outside of our awareness, and thus have a profound impact on how we view ourselves, connections to others, and place in the world. Losses and changes create disillusionment and helplessness if not processed to allow forward movement and renewed meaning.

I specialize in OCD and anxiety (including other anxiety disorders) and believe in using the gold standard treatment for them, a specific form of cognitive behavioral therapy called Exposure and Response Prevention.
If you’ve found your way to my profile, I imagine there is some part of your life that feels less-than-ideal. Change is possible and you’ve just taken the first step. Do you experience anxiety or unwanted thoughts or have OCD? Do you find yourself worrying excessively about your safety or that of your loved ones? Is anxiety or self-doubt keeping you from getting what you want out of life, interfering with your relationships, or keeping you stuck? Are you struggling with your self-esteem, body image, or perfectionism?

Do you struggle with depression, anxiety , and trauma? Do you experience difficulties managing family and relationship issues? I believe that healing happens when we pay attention to all the parts that make us whole—our mind, body, and soul. The subconscious mind controls most of our reality and choices, so building awareness and active presence can improve the quality of daily living and assist in not only surviving, but thriving through life. As an intuitive & holistic therapist, I will assist you in strengthening your inner psyche and developing new tools to manage negative feelings and thoughts.

The OCD Center Los Angeles is a private, outpatient clinic specializing in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and related anxiety -based conditions. Among the disorders we treat are: OCD, Social Anxiety , Panic Disorder, Phobias, Body Dysmorphic Disorder (body image anxiety ), Hypochondria (health anxiety ), Trichotillomania (hair pulling), and Dermatillomania (skin picking). Unfortunately, traditional talk therapy has little impact on these conditions. Conversely, research has consistently found CBT to be the most effective treatment for these disorders. While treatment may last years with traditional therapy, most clients make dramatic improvement with CBT in just 4-6 months.

My therapeutic approach mainly focuses on helping my clients identify their strengths to help alleviate anxiety , depression, and trauma. I am a firm believer that our childhood experiences contribute to our beliefs, behavioral patterns, and selecting a romantic partner. Therapy is a process! To allow ourselves to be intimate and vulnerable with someone about our experiences and trauma can be daunting. As a therapist, it is my goal to help validate, create a safe environment and help understand aspects of lived experiences.

I work with individuals and couples and specialize in relationships, anxiety , maternal mental health, cultural identity/generation gaps, boundary setting, and grief.
Welcome! Therapy should be practical and approachable. As a relationship specialist, my collaborative focus is on the "why" of where you are. When we understand why, we can navigate the hurdles getting in your way with insight and healthy coping skills that are effective. You will not be alone in this; we will be working together on expanding awareness of your thoughts, feelings and ways that you engage with the world. This process opens up space for healthier, more intentional relationships that you can actually enjoy (including the one with yourself)! At the core of my practice is an authentic, warm and compassionate presence.

My specialties are in the care and treatment of individuals struggling with eating disorders, anxiety , and mood disorders.
George Eliot said "the strongest principle of growth lies in the human choice." This could not be more true. We make choices every day: get up or snooze, jeans or dress pants, say "hello" or "good morning," one more episode or go to bed, and the list goes on. However, certain choices have a greater impact on our lives than others. At the top of the list is self-care. This can be extremely difficult at times. Sometimes it feels like life has thrown everything (and the kitchen sink at us), and it's too much to sort through on our own. My goal is to help you and your loved ones get back on your feet...and stay there.

Throughout our lives, we all have experienced feelings of depression, anxiety , and anger. These emotions leave you feeling insecure, shameful, lonely, unworthy and stuck in unhealthy patterns of behavior. Trauma can have negative emotional and physical effects and can lead to family/relationship issues. I specialize in solution-focused brief therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness and CBT. These approaches allow me to work with the client to decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression and other health/behavioral issues.

I work with adolescents and adults 18+ with depression, anxiety , trauma, mild addiction, relationship/communication issues, grief and loss, and life transitions.
Psychotherapy relies heavily on the rapport between therapist and client, without it growth and trust cease to exist. I work towards understanding your needs and wants in a nonjudgmental safe, supportive, and empathetic environment. I believe mental health issues are a symptom of deeper, unresolved emotional issues and childhood wounds. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy to help identify irrational thoughts and faulty thinking that are the main culprits behind anxiety and stress.

I have experience working with a wide range of issues including loss, childhood trauma, fear/ anxiety , sexuality, relationships, inner-critic and life-path struggles.
I am interested in your unique life journey, your struggles and your deepest longings. Therapy helps transform limiting patterns that keep us stuck and unable to experience life in a more fulfilling and nourishing way. With a compassionate and collaborative presence, I support others in reconnecting with themselves, deepening relationships, and feeling aligned with their true nature. Uncovering obstacles and connecting with inner guidance helps alleviate suffering and makes room for new possibilities and enlivening choices to emerge.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.
