My practice focuses on helping individuals, couples, and families who are suffering from emotional or physical pain or the aftereffects of trauma. We help them resolve the traumatic experience, as well as its consequences (e.g. physical pain, stress, disability, depression, anxiety, insomnia, medication dependence, isolation, etc.) Although most of our patients have not responded to prior therapies, we've had outstanding success in helping them move from feeling a severe loss to finding a new and positive beginning. We love to work with people who are ready to change and eager to learn how to do it.

*******PLEASE NOTE MY PRACTICE IS CURRENTLY FULL. I AM NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME. I view psychotherapy as a collaborative, co-creative process between client and therapist. It is important for the client to feel a connection with his/her therapist and to sense that the therapist has the client's best interests and well-being at heart. I believe that through the process of expanding upon one's inherent strengths and developing insight and awareness, one is able to move into a more empowered state leading to a more enjoyable and gratifying life, a life in which one is able to fully participate.

I strive to create a safe and welcoming environment for each client by practicing openness and non-judgmental acceptance of every person with whom I work. We are all so different, which is to be celebrated. I bring my own sense of authenticity and genuine care for each person. I hope to serve as a guide in the healing process; to work hard alongside you in order to discover the areas of discomfort and assist you in creating a plan to overcome these challenges. I identify most with therapeutic approaches that have a foundation in compassion and the mindfulness philosophies of openness and approaching one’s self without judgment.

Individuals often struggle with managing the stress in their lives that can lead to feelings of depression, anxiety, and unhealthy behaviors, for example. Distress can arise from work, life transitions, relationships, and difficult emotions. We can find ourselves reacting in the same ways, experiencing the same agonizing feelings, and being in the same difficult circumstances. The goal is to understand your own thoughts, behaviors, and emotions, and use that information to minimize suffering, have healthier relationships with others and with yourself, achieve your life goals, and feel a sense of agency to live the life you deserve.

I’ve had the privilege of working with diverse populations for over 15 years. In working with a culturally competent therapist like me, you can focus on what brought you to therapy in the first place and not on explaining or “teaching” the nuances of your culture and sexuality. My expertise is in helping those who are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship difficulties. I’m trained in EMDR, an evidence-based therapy that treats trauma and other difficulties.

Many of us use ways we coped in the past and we find ourselves blocked in the present. Maybe old strategies which once worked for you no longer function well in the present. And you'd like to explore possible changes. Perhaps I can help. In my work, I seek, with you, to identify and connect past feelings and previous ways to adapt with your present. As you begin to know more about yourself and your feelings, increased understanding can lead to change.

It can be hard to talk to your partner about your relationship when you’re overwhelmed with feelings of hurt and anger. Instead of conversations that bring you closer together, it can turn into fights that feel like they’re pushing you further apart. It can feel like you’re having the same fights over and over but never resolving anything. And it can leave you feeling distant from each other, misunderstood, and frustrated.

Life can present many challenges. Most of the time, we can successfully handle the trials and tribulations of daily living; but occasionally we get overwhelmed. To help cope and feel much better, we consult a professional who sorts and sheds light on the elements that caused these challenges. In the process, we talk about how we feel and why we feel the way we do. Most importantly, we learn to successfully handle the initiating emotional triggers in a way such that the resultant problems no longer arise. My Los Angeles therapy practice is dediated to being that caring professional.

“Committed to you winning I designed a modern holistic psychotherapy approach to get you to your goals faster. I felt unsatisfied with the results from psychotherapy alone so I embarked on a global search for more answers. Learning from brilliant minds and teachers I combined discoveries I made from the world of life coaching, neuroscience and wellness practices with powerful psychotherapeutic techniques. The results have been dramatically more efficient and effective mental health and relationship improvement for my clients. And the process of creating that in that mindful way is simply more satisfying.”

Some of the questions my clients often grapple with in therapy include: What has served me in the past that no longer serves me? Which choices help me open to experience rather than withdraw? How can I rely on my strengths to overcome obstacles? How do I grow from connections and disconnections in my relationships? I am primarily guided by the unique qualities and needs of each person or couple, and work collaboratively towards their desired outcomes. When appropriate, I provide suggestions for behavioral practices between sessions, in order to bridge what we do in therapy to your everyday life.

It's tough to use words to describe the work of psychotherapy. As such, I like to analogize it to art and poetry, where its interpretations are varied, nuanced and deeply personal. It may be hard to accept that like life, psychotherapy and art may not have linear progressions toward results. Sometimes life may appear confusing, overwhelming, or just hard for no apparent reason. With the belief that all struggle is for our eventual benefit, the real work is in uncovering your diamond in the rough. This brings to mind a poem I love by Wendell Berry:

I am invested in facilitating lasting and generative growth and self-realization in my clients. Change is hard and inevitable, and sometimes it is something we choose (divorce, career change, major move), and sometimes it happens to us (loss of a loved one, diagnosis with illness, loss of a job), but no matter the circumstance, together I believe we can work to move through it and emerge feeling healed, whole, and ready to live each day to its fullest.

During my first psychology class in high school I learned that there are actually words to describe my experience-the sometimes conflicting experiences of living between two different worlds. I became passionate about finding a way to address the experience of people whose hurts and wounds are often invisible-fractured hearts and minds vs physical challenges. I was saddened by my observation that too many people feel stigmatized and alone with their inner turmoil and wanted to find a way to make the heart, mind and body whole. My dream is that therapy becomes accessible to everyone and viewed merely as another source of support.
