I help clients understand their behaviors, habits, addictions, and attitudes. I utilize evidenced-based therapies and motivational enhancement techniques to assist clients in shedding the behaviors and habits that have been holding while facilitating work towards positive life change and goal achievement. In addition to my focus on addiction, I work with a variety of other mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship issues. I also serve as leader and facilitator of addiction groups, support groups, mindfulness groups and moderation management groups at Coast Psychological Services.

My approach blends a mix of internal family systems/parts work, acceptance and commitment therapy, and attachment theory.
Are you experiencing grief and loss? Are you navigating health challenges, chronic illness, and/or chronic pain? Do you have parts of yourself that are difficult to share with others? Have you experienced medical or relational/attachment trauma? You've come to the right place. As a queer therapist with chronic illness, I draw from both my professional and lived experiences. I believe that therapy can be a reparative experience and that the relationship between a therapist and client has the ability to foster immense change and growth. Everyone deserves to have a life worth living, and I am here to help you get there.

Evidence-based treatment approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness.
I work with women struggling with relationships, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, major life transitions, and finding balance. I’m interested in getting to know the whole you — which is someone far greater than any single role in life or any single struggle or experience. Your therapy will be tailored to your individual needs, and we will work together to define what you truly want out of life. Through building a compassionate and healing space, we can take an honest look inward to help you develop an enriching life that feels more meaningful and satisfying.

It is imperative for clinicians to encourage self- acceptance , support patient's rights to self-determination, assist with embracing change, and recognizing each patient's personal strengths to aid in recovery.
Are you experiencing Hopelessness, Sadness, Worthlessness, Panic Attacks, Racing Thoughts, or Fear? Do you lay awake at night WORRYING about EVERYTHING? Are your worries or fears a constant cycle? Do you avoid interaction with loved ones, or maybe you don't want to be a burden to family or friends, so you begin isolating from everyone? Do you ever say, “I can’t take this anymore?” Do you feel alone in your problems? You are not alone, whether you're dealing with Anxiety, Depression, Relationship Issues, Health Crisis, Midlife Crisis, or just unsure how to move forward in life, assisting adults redefine life is my passion & purpose.

I draw from theories including CBT, ACT , psychodynamic, EFT and Gottman (for couples) to heal issues stemming from depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, relational conflicts, stress, and existential unease.
Are you feeling lost, stuck, or like life just isn’t as enjoyable as it used to be? Noticing that your relationships have become strained or unfulfilling? Stretched so thin that you're close to "snapping?" I can help. As your therapist, I will create a safe space that is non-judgmental, supportive, and sometimes even a little bit fun (seriously!) I want you to look FORWARD to therapy sessions and to leave them feeling like a weight has been lifted and clarity has been gained. You deserve to live a purposeful, peaceful, and abundant life. It would be my honor to help you get there.

For anxiety, depression, OCD and related issues like perfectionism, I use both CBT and ACT along with Exposure and Response Prevention techniques and self-compassion skills.
Note: I'm conducting hiking sessions in Los Feliz and elsewhere! Having experienced various challenges related to chronic pain, OCD, anxiety and depression, I enjoy working with clients who have also experienced these issues and are looking for some guidance and support from someone who better understands what they are going through. Coping with the daily suffering that mental illness can produce can feel extremely isolating and hopeless. I like to create a safe space where clients can share their feelings and hardships without fear of judgment, and to help them develop the skills needed to overcome the obstacles they are facing.

Do you yearn for a better, happier life, but feel weighed down by stress, anxiety, or sadness? Do difficult thoughts and feelings prevent you from doing the things you need to do? You aren’t alone - it is so easy to become caught in a cycle of worry, depression, and negative self-talk, especially in these uncertain times. Along with the stressors that come up in our daily lives, other things can affect how we feel and function, including how we were raised, a relentless inner critic, a feeling of disconnectedness from ourselves and others, and painful past experiences.

Whether you’ve worked with a few therapists, or have never been to therapy before… if it feels like nothing seems to really improve in your life, it may be time to try something different. Are you looking for someone to help you define and reach your goals? Someone to help you become more stable, aligned, empowered, and consistently supported with sessions tailored to you and your unique journey, rather than stuck or simply lost in an often re-traumatizing pathology-focused merry-go-round of disconnected, rushed, generic sessions, and no continuity of care? Then definitely take THIS opportunity to change all that…

My practice is rooted in the strengths-based perspective, and informed by the interconnectedness of all things. I recognize the relationship between mind, body, and spirit (or soul), and the complexity of being an individual influenced by multiple, dynamic systems. Therapy is a collaboration between client and therapist, as we are all practitioners and students in our own rights. We all have within us an innate wisdom and knowing to share and to affect positive change.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists

Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy evidence-based?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of many approaches within the field of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence-based treatment framework that has been shown to be effective in treating many mental health conditions including depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and OCD.

What is the difference between Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Despite being part of the CBT family of therapies, ACT differs from other approaches within this field in several important ways: First, it emphasizes acceptance over change; second, it focuses on present moment experiences rather than past experiences or future events; third it focuses on what clients can do rather than what they cannot do; and fourth it emphasizes values rather than symptoms as targets for change.

What credentials will a certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist have?

A certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist in Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles will have completed specialized training in this approach at a university accredited by The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT).

How long does ACT typically take?

ACT is a relatively short-term therapy that focuses on helping you accept the things you can't change and commit to the things you can. It typically takes about eight weeks of weekly sessions with a therapist to complete the entire process. You may need to see your therapist weekly or biweekly, depending on the circumstances surrounding your situation.
