People often seek out therapy because they feel stuck. In their careers, in their relationships, in their lives. I know what that’s like and how overwhelming it can feel. I became a therapist to help people overcome this struggle and get unstuck. I see therapy as a collaborative partnership; one that’s nurtured in a non-judgmental and safe environment. Believing that our relationship facilitates growth, I utilize psychodynamic and mindfulness perspectives to guide you toward understanding your behavior and a deeper sense of yourself.

I use mindfulness to best support you in getting back to you and have a lot of training in mindfulness -based therapies (MBSR and DBT), as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), all of which are incredibly helpful in reducing stress.
During this uncertain and unique time in life, you may be feeling anxious, sad, angry, and confused. You might be isolated or fighting with who you're living with. Important plans have been put on hold. You can't use your usual coping tools (going to the gym, going to the office, taking classes, getting together with friends and family). And we don’t know how long it'll last! I know how difficult it is, but taking care of your mental health, so that you can be physically healthy too, is really important. You might also have long-standing issues in your life that you haven't had the time to deal with until now.

I use individual psychotherapy, EMDR,* mindfulness meditation, and somatic therapy in the self-healing mind approach.
I am interested in treating people whose potential is hindered by negative concepts of themselves imprinted in childhood (through traumatic experiences or neglect of basic emotional needs) and who frequently suffer from symptoms like chronic depression, anxiety and low self-esteem. I am committed to helping these individuals attain a sense of self that brings them happiness and fulfillment. My basic perspective is that the human mind possesses the capacity to heal itself, if guided in the right way. I have explored various methods and approaches to helping the mind restore its basic wholeness.

Therapy is about exploring, experimenting, discovering, and being vulnerable. In our therapy together you will learn to increase self-compassion and mindfulness , and your ability to sit with uncertainty and bear witness to uncomfortable feelings and body sensations. You will gain awareness of the role negative core beliefs and thoughts have upon mood and learn how to challenge those negative thought patterns. You will learn to set appropriate boundaries by asserting feelings, recognizing wants and needs, and identifying the role shame and guilt might play in causing unhealthy, harmful, stale, and inauthentic behaviors.

My primary therapeutic approach is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which centers mindfulness ; ACT allows us to foster compassion and commitment to self in the service of living an enriched life, in spite of the discomfort and challenges which arise while trying to live it.
My primary goal in working in mental health is to put myself out of a job. Given that each of us intrinsically know what we need to heal and grow, my approach to psychotherapy is to couple your expertise of being you – your reality and lived experiences – with my skillset, in order to collaboratively work towards achieving your goals. Through a culturally-affirming and healing-centered stance, I utilize evidence-based treatments to facilitate our work.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in Los Angeles with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based therapists in Los Angeles can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Los Angeles MBCT therapists.
