Integrating an eclectic, strength-based approach incorporating mindfulness, narrative, psychodynamic , and CBT techniques, I believe that being direct (without being confrontational) is essential to a successful therapeutic relationship.
Change can be hard but all you need to do is take the first step. I'd be honored to walk along with you on that journey & make it a little easier. I've worked with individuals who are seeking to live more authentically, slow down, be less reactive, and be more in tune with their emotions. While some clients are looking for immediate solutions, others want to explore the “why” behind it all. I believe we can focus on both. We'll move at your pace to understand what isn't working and why. I'm also passionate about helping couples seeking to improve their communication and reduce conflict leading to increased intimacy and connection.

My training is in psychodynamic therapy which focuses on understanding your past in order to transform your present behavior, beliefs, and responses to others.
During my 20 years as a psychotherapist I have helped many people learn to cope with lives that have become overwhelming. I help people develop success in work, family, and love. I have a broad range of experience working with adults and couples. Their symptoms range from depression, panic/anxiety, life changes, traumatic events, grief, relationship problems, and unresolved childhood issues.

Psychotherapy is an opportunity to feel better, to learn what makes you happy, and to become your most genuine and creative self. As a safe and empathetic environment, therapy can help reduce symptoms like anxiety and depression. By jointly exploring unconscious forces in decision making and the function of our nervous system on behavior, my goal is to help improve your relationships and encourage growth towards your specific goals. I strive to incorporate a blend of body and psyche using somatic experiencing and depth/ psychodynamic psychology. My areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, and addiction.

I use brief solution focused therapy and psychodynamic work dealing with the past.
We all go through times that are stressful and overwhelming. Certain behaviors and aspects of our personalities can cause us trouble as well. Whether it be work problems, relationship issues, illness or just a vague feeling of unhappiness or irritability, seeing a therapist can help. As a clinical social worker I have been trained to assess the complex picture of your life and determine where changes can be made. As partners in the process of therapy we can address emotional, mental, physical and practical areas of your life that can be modified or healed to bring about relief and fulfillment.

I utilize a multi model approach which include CBT for early stages of treatment and symptom reduction, Schema therapy, to identify patterns of behaviors and psychodynamic therapy to identify underlying defenses.
The therapeutic process is unique to the client. For some it involves deep reflection and questioning old idea's, and for others a problem solving collaboration. For me it is the excitement of the journey you will embark on, and the endless possibilities for growth. Transparency is paramount, and key to the process for both client and therapist. Work is progressive and tailored to the individual. As issues emerge, treatment plans are re-assessed and revised to meet client needs. For trauma I am trained in EMDR and Functional Family Systems for addiction CBT and 12-step and for couples family systems.

I have advanced training in EMDR, Mindfulness, Psychodynamic and Solution Focused Psychotherapy.
As a clinician with over fifteen years of experience in diverse cities, there is no "one approach" to therapy; the process is individual and directed by your needs. My philosophical belief is that therapy is a place where you can reflect on how best to navigate your life. With you guiding, we work together to better relationships, improve communication, and move through transitions. I treat anxiety, depression, mood disorders, relationship issues, work/life management, major life transitions, and trauma.

My therapeutic style is warm, playful, and direct when needed, influenced by intensive post graduate trainings in psychodynamic psychotherapy.
The fabric of our lives is interwoven to create a tapestry that is unique to our experiences. At times, some of those experiences can feel overwhelming and confusing to make sense of. Therapy is a highly creative process that allows for weaving in and expanding upon parts of the tapestry, to provide a more robust and multidimensional landscape. So often, we hide parts of ourselves that feel unacceptable and intolerable to others. Together, we can be curious and inviting, creating a space for all of these parts of yourself to be present so that you can foster better relations with yourself and others.

Do you feel disconnected from living a vibrant and engaged life? Do the simplest tasks stand before you like an ocean? Are relationships a source of emotional pain in your life? Our ability to make sense of our emotional experiences can be the key to releasing emotional pain and suffering. Often times, our own cultural perceptions of mental health can prevent us from seeking the help that we need. My personal and professional experiences have influenced my understanding of the value of promoting mental health and how simple changes can have a profound effect on our lives.

When boundaries have been violated through infidelity, lies and secrets it can be hard to know if a relationship is salvageable. Whether you have been cheated on or done the cheating: is there hope? Is change possible? Problems with intimacy can take many faces; ultimately, we want to be congruent with ourselves and those we love. I specialize in sexuality and have successfully worked with clients to help them heal from betrayal trauma, erectile struggles, acting out with porn, love addiction, exploration of sexual identity, and compulsive sexual behavior. I provide support and interventions that create healthy coping skills.

I'm deeply empathetic with an ability to be with clients through their most difficult emotions. I believe processing feelings can facilitate rapid growth. However, my approach is eclectic because change can be initiated in different ways. For example, emotional processing can shift feelings as well as thoughts and behaviors. Alternatively, reevaluating dysfunctional thoughts can improve our outlook and actions. Exploring different behaviors can permanently change one's attitude or release repressed feelings. So, I'm a client centered, empathetic therapist, comfortable working on deep feelings as well as assisting clients in finding concrete solutions and effective new behaviors.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Mar Vista, Los Angeles, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
