Are you struggling with life changes or relationship issues ? Trying to understand and work with a recent ADHD diagnosis? Want to take control of your anxiety? Making that first call to start therapy can be hard; you're taking a risk that you'll connect with that voice on the phone, or that video image online. We all need a safe space where we can talk through our fears and struggles. You want to find that right person who you know is not just listening to you; but really hearing you.

Personal growth. Changes in thought and behavior. Emotional reactions and responses. Healing. Mindfulness. Resilience. These are some areas to focus on in psychotherapy. And choosing to go into therapy is the first, courageous action you will take. As your therapist, we will build a safe, trusting relationship so that together --through conversation, attentive listening, respectful and interactive responses-- we can discover what you want different in your life. My practice is client-centered and custom fit for each person and situation. Let's explore together.

My goal is to listen well and provide the treatment that best meets your specific needs, to help you to identify your strengths and manage your vulnerabilities. In my work with families I encourage each person to express his/her individuality, and to cope with differences -striving for mutuality, fairness and harmony. My chief concern is with maximizing your capacities and potential, and helping you improve your relationship to yourself and to others. Together we may engage with imagery, sensory experiencing, movement, art, poetry and music to deepen self awareness and understanding (and relief from discomfort)

Scanning through this website trying to discern which therapist will be a good fit from a photograph and a blurb is tricky and also a sign of the times. Ideally less time is spent searching the web for answers and more can be spent with a person whose sole intention is to understand the complexities of your point of view, your experiences and facilitate you getting to where you want to go, while walking right along side you. Depression, anxiety, trauma, distorted relationship with food, difficulty being productive; these are all areas I feel confident I can help you with.

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.

Thank you for taking a moment to read about me and my work. My approach uses insight and depth psychotherapy combined with Mindfulness within a framework of awareness of the body. When our living process becomes stuck, therapy can move it forward. If you feel stuck in repetitive behaviors, painful feelings, and recurring anxious thoughts, I want to help you to identify how you are bogged down, so you can feel better. I can help to re-focus a sense of purpose...a way to step into your life more completely. This may include taking action if feeling adrift, or bringing clarity to a relationship .

I have had many years of gratifying experience in deeply engaging with the people I work with, and training and supervising doctoral students and therapists (many on this site have been my students!). Discovering what has been causing personal distress, worry, loneliness, or disappointment is what transforms life. These underlying stresses can cause problems with relationship , career, mood, or just general feelings of dissatisfaction. The personal growth that blooms in the therapy opens doors inside and out, and creates the rich opportunities and experiences we all want in life.

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.

Every experience has physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects that manifest internally within the body, and externally in relationship to others.
My compassionate and active approach to therapy is one that can rapidly improve a willing client's life. Clients have the opportunity to experience healing and transformation as they integrate a sustainable sense of well-being. I teach techniques that provide for ongoing self-care and self-sufficiency. I offer my clients concrete tools and therapeutic experiences for shifting their patterns and healing their pain; they become empowered and live more authentic and satisfying lives. Couples build attunement, improve communication and overcome individual and relational patterns that prevent intimacy.

Sometimes we don't even consider asking for help when we're feeling stuck, so I'm glad you've begun that process. I have experience helping people through relationship struggles, mood disorders, substance abuse, patterns of procrastination and compulsive behaviors - essentially the things we do to manage this sometimes painful human existence. I believe that our pain often originates from our relationships, and so relationships become an important part of change. I like to be curious, to teach you to be curious, to learn how the past impacts the present, and to introduce choice where destructive default once reigned.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Mar Vista, Los Angeles relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Mar Vista, Los Angeles.
