Are you feeling lost or stuck in a rut? Have you noticed that you often feel angry, guilty, or bitter and it's affecting your relationship with others? Or perhaps you feel ill equipped at managing your emotions and/or conflicts that arise with others. There are so many messages and beliefs being thrown at us on a constant basis, whether it's from others or ourselves, that can make us feel overwhelmed, stressed, depressed, or disingenuous. These feelings can often be debilitating and can sabotage our life and our relationships with others. Perhaps you're ready to feel more confident and want to start taking charge of your life.

I focus on a range of issues such as anxiety, depression, obsessive thinking, compulsive behavior, addiction, co-dependency, parental challenges, boundary making, and relationship issues.
The key to emotional and psychological wellness lies in the balance of action and acceptance. The role of the therapist is to provide the client with enough unconditional support and practical strategies to attain this balance and achieve their goals. Because each client is different, I employ an integrated approach. I draw from person centered therapy, attachment/psychodynamic theory, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness.

Through conversation and collaboration, I aim to help clients explore new possibilities on how they might understand and contend with the issues they bring to therapy. My approach is non-pathologizing, in other words, I see my clients as more than and separate from the problems they encounter—I see them as worthy, knowledgeable, and dignified people desiring a better way. I work with individuals, couples, and families who are seeking consultation on a variety of issues, including anxiety, grief, loss, relational concerns, work-related stress, and life transitions.

Waitlist for new clients
As a licensed marriage and family therapist I work with both couples and individuals to create a safe and caring space, so together we can begin to explore your pain, building a bedrock of compassion and empathy for your struggles.
I believe the pathways to healing are through our intimate relationships with each other. But because few of us have experienced what it feels like to reach toward the soft embrace of another, and also be held, loved, and received just as we are, how we see and what we tell ourselves in response to life's struggles can become distorted. We develop false senses of self and of others; we wrestle with depression, anxiety, and obsessional thinking. We fall prey to addictions, and we struggle in our relationships, finding ourselves in patterns that bring conflict and disconnection.

I offer client-centered therapy in Eagle Rock and in Old Town Pasadena. Guiding principles are: that one always remains the expert on one's own life, that people have the internal resources to overcome their "stuck-ness," and that a collaborative therapeutic relationship is the key to encouraging positive change and more meaningful living. While I deal with a wide range of client issues, most of my clients are high-functioning or gifted intellectually and/or artistically. I use Rogerian, Experiential Focusing, Gestault, Attachment Theory, and Existential concepts and methods, working with clients to help them maximize their personal freedom and growth.

I work with the following problems: anxiety, depression, low self-confidence, fears, traumas, relationship issues, self-doubt, social anxiety, dependency on people's opinions and judgments, lack of identity and purpose, anger, guilt, codependency, lack of future goals and motivation, negative thoughts and attitudes, stress, procrastination, and many more.
I practice a unique combination of counseling and hypnotherapy. My therapy is based on the notion that every person has the potential to be complete, happy and fulfilled. My goal is to help my clients realize this potential. In our therapy work we explore emotional, mental and personal levels: Emotional (reprocessing fears, traumas; old patterns); Mental (learning new behaviors, emotional skills); Personal (setting goals/purpose; building confidence, trust). My clients have an active role in their healing process. During the sessions I introduce new tools and strategies. In between the sessions clients apply and practice them.

Through a supportive and collaborative relationship, we will work together to reestablish a sense of security, connection and accomplishment within your life.
I have extensive experience working with patients with dual diagnoses that include substance abuse, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, adjustment disorders, and personality disorders. Over the last 8 years I have worked with clients struggling with comorbid substance use and mood disorders. I believe that people are resilient and I cherish that, and work to enhance that resiliency. I believe every client is an individual, with various experiences and needs, and thus, it is critical to have their treatment be personalized to their needs, areas of strength, readiness for change and personality style.

Sharing and understanding parts of ourselves or our internal struggles can be scary, vulnerable and transformative. As humans our lives shift frequently, and having support through some of those life adjustments can be invaluable to finding one's purpose or meaning. In the sacredness of the therapeutic relationship, I hope to offer a safe environment to explore your personal values, culture and discover how to be your most authentic self.

I offer a collaborative space for teens and adults seeking individual or couples therapy.
The teenage years are filled with anxieties of self discovery and identity. As a young adult you may have parts of yourself you feel like you must hide. You may feel like there are conflicts with who you are, and how you currently present in the world. You may be coming to a deeper understanding of your gender or sexual identity. It can be hard to know how to talk to your parents. This can be a scary time filled with a lot of fear, curiosity, uncertainty, and grief; all of which can complicate your relationship with your family and friends. Together we can explore ways to find a little more ease in the journey.

I also work well with people who might have been in therapy before and are looking to get to a deeper level of self-understanding, and with other therapists and helping professionals. My practice accommodates people who find themselves wanting or needing more than once a week sessions. I enjoy working with couples looking to better understand themselves, each other, and their dynamics.
