I have extensive training in anxiety, pain management, work burnout, ADHD, and relational grief/loss.
Do you find yourself completely avoiding or “numbing out” because things seem so overwhelming? Do you find yourself so “revved up” to do things, to only later find yourself completely burned out? Do you feel like you can’t enjoy life because there is a constant pressure to do things and “do them right?” I help YOU manage these heavy feelings, learn coping strategies, and begin discovering “what’s right with you.” I have empowered many clients at UCLA Medicine, The Pain Psychology Center, and The Relational Center feel in order to truly heal.

Your challenge may be aging, illness or chronic disease. Your job or your job satisfaction may be insufficient. Relationships and support from family and loved ones seem inadequate. Advice from friends and quick fix treatments are ineffective. You are not just a body, you are not just a mind. You are a complex individual who faces unique challenges. I can help you gain the strength and flexibility needed to surmount the challenges you face. My goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a more joyful life.

"Not until we are lost, do we begin to understand ourselves." -- Henry David Thoreau. I believe this statement is an essential truth about the human condition. Paradoxically, as other great intellects have attested to, it is precisely through self-understanding that one achieves emotional healing, wisdom and maturity. Through insight and self-awareness, one also gains an increased capacity for deep and meaningful relationships, a potent tonic for whatever ails, be it depression or anxiety, grief or trauma, aging or illness .... Resolving inner conflicts leads to healthier choices and the vanquishing of self-defeating patterns.

I am extensively trained in DBT, Internal Family Systems (IFS), EMDR, Pain Reprocessing Therapy (PRT), and Gottman Couples.
Since you often find solutions to hard problems it's surprising that you're still stuck. Despite appearing to lead a very successful life, you may face a lot of stress, anxiety and depression in your personal life. Perhaps a painful experience from the past is impacting your present. Or, maybe you find yourself stuck in the same arguments with your partner, friend or family member and you're growing apart instead of growing together. Does any of the above sound like you?

Research shows ISTDP can be an effective treatment for a broad spectrum of Emotional and Relational difficulties & self-defeating behaviors, including: Depression, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Trauma; Medically Unexplained Symptoms (eg back or neck pain , headaches, tension, neurologic and digestive symptoms); TMS/MBS; and Stress-exacerbated symptoms/disorders.
The foundation of my work is primarily informed by experiential dynamic therapies, most prominently by evidence-based "Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy" (ISTDP), a structured, efficient, cost-effective, goal-results-oriented structured treatment approach, providing in-vivo experiences and in-session affective processing, uniquely designed to achieving deep and profound change. I integrate other modalities and approaches as needed and efficacious.

My ideal client is aware that some primary positive feeling has changed. The positive feeling has suddenly, or over time, become negative and painful. Because of this change, he or she may have reluctantly given up on a long term goal, or may be in the midsts of a divorce where there was once loving contentment that has disappeared. Sometimes the pain is so severe that the Client considers ending his or her life. No matter what the circumstance, this Client is longing for relief from the pain . The Client needs a Therapist who can, incrementally over time, help to alleviate the pain and begin a more positive approach to living life.

I believe childhood experiences create the template for adult life. Early losses, separations and trauma define the choices of strategies or defenses we use as adults. Pain and suffering can be caused by these early experiences. It is my job as a therapist to join my clients in their journey of discovery of these templates and help them to gain a more fulfilled life. I provide individual, couples and family counseling services in both English and Spanish in a safe, comfortable environment. My approach is tailored to each client, to meet them on their journey of discovery to finding a more fulfilled life.

Creating a safe, caring, non-judgmental environment in which to engage in a deep, authentic healing process is my intention. Anxiety, depression, and other painful issues, often have their roots in developmental wounding and/or trauma. I help you get to the causes of your pain and patterns that no longer serve you. Mindfulness and somatic resourcing allow you to experience relief (and rewire your brain) while safely navigating and processing the past. I specialize in anxiety, trauma, PTSD, relationships, career, self-esteem, and auto-immune, pain and other somatic challenges. I offer individual, couples therapy, groups, workshops, and retreats.

Are you tired of starting each day depressed, stressed, or scared? The simple, but difficult act of calling for help, is certain to begin to decrease those negative feelings. In therapy I don't just sit and listen. It is an interactive process of listening, talking and questioning. The purpose is to decrease pain and suffering, increase understanding and promote growth and change. First is a careful examination of your current situation as well as some review of your life and family history. This assessment allows us to see your strengths and vulnerabilities so we can outline a successful strategy.

I specialize in issues related to grief and loss, living with chronic or life-limiting illness , caregiving, depression, anxiety, and the daily stress or challenges encountered as people progress through key life transitions.
In times of personal crisis, it is natural to feel overwhelmed, alone, and disconnected from friends, family, and even yourself. When your usual strategies for "snapping out of it" are no longer working, you may feel stuck, irritable, fatigued, or generally disinterested in activities that would normally bring pleasure or meaning to your life. Ironically, it is often during your most vulnerable times that you also have the greatest capacity for healing and renewal. I believe in the resilience of the human spirit and the capacity for positive change - even in the darkest of times.
