If you've become lost amongst obstacles on your journey, I'd like to help guide you to more happiness by offering suggestions, uncovering unwanted patterns, and leading you from the past to the present in order to heal and evolve, enhancing your happiness. Through changes in perceptions/attitudes and being willing to see situations with a new pair of glasses, you can reach your goals and evolve. My clients report that they enjoy my down-to-earth attitude and humor and my use of Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, TRM, meditation and yoga to treat mind-body symptoms. I work best with clients who are motivated to gain self-awareness and see patterns that are no longer serving them. I give homework between sessions in order to keep the continuity of healing working consistently. I feel very blessed to be working in a field that serves people who are finding their best selves and evolving into the people they want to be.

“Shame dies when stories are told in safe places.” - Ann Voskamp. It can be hard to find places where we are seen, and can see ourselves, with accuracy and empathy. It can be even harder to ask for help. I would be honored to provide you with that space and to walk alongside you as we explore your most important concerns. If you are a young adult finding your identity in the world, a couple seeking deeper connection, or if you are facing grief and/or life transition, I can help. I am trained in Gestalt, somatic and narrative practices, and I facilitate groups for adults experiencing domestic violence.

I approach this work through a lens of mindfulness, somatic embodiment, and attention to the multiplicity of the psyche.
If we are lucky in this life we will experience many inner deaths, each an opportunity to shed parts of self, to embrace our own expansion, and enter the next dimension of life. If we fail to die, we fail to grow. We have lost the ritual container that holds our rites of passage and without the containment and guidance that goes with it many of us feel lost, hopeless, deficient in some way and without a sense of belonging. Therapy in the depth tradition has become a space to compassionately witness and accompany individuals in the alchemical process of healing and growth.

The mind and body are always working in tandem, therefore I incorporate the body therapeutically through embodied awareness and somatic practices including, yoga, meditation, mindfulness, and breathwork.
My aim as a clinician is to treat the soul, not the symptoms. As a depth-focused psychotherapist I strive to focus on the individual, not their diagnosis or symptomology. My ideal clients are people who not only wish to address their mental health, but develop a deeper understanding of oneself. I have worked alongside clients to address Anxiety Disorders, including Social Anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Mood Disorders, Attachment Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and Addiction. My goal is to help clients achieve relief from their mental health by working to heal the wounded aspects of themselves.

My work is integrative meaning I specialize in using different approaches through out treatment and is highly informed by: somatic therapy, attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology, humanistic psychology, and mind-body practices.
I believe that a profound desire lies within each of us to thrive and live to our highest potential. I view therapy as a collaborative journey which encourages self-awareness and self-acceptance through the process of being present. In my work I seek to help my clients bring compassionate attention to the various dimensions of their emotional experience, may it be boundless joy or deep sadness. As we become more aware of our thoughts, feelings, and actions, we are better able to navigate through struggle and uncertainty.

I am certified in both Somatic and LGBTQ+ Affirmative Psychotherapy.
Seeking out therapy is a very heroic action in and of itself, perhaps your first proactive step into redefining your sense of self, creating a new life story, and taking a leap into the direction of self-care. If you are reading this, you may be in a state of uncertainty, or perhaps connected more deeply than you would like to be to the effects of depression, anxiety, or your daily life situations. Maybe, you are wrestling in a relationship with someone you love; perhaps, finding the words to communicate who you are and how you feel may seem unattainable and challenging at best.

I have specialized training in Somatic Experiencing ( Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute), Internal Family Systems (IFS Institute), MDMA & Psilocybin Assisted Therapy (MAPS/COMPASS), EMDR (EMDR Institute), & Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (Academy of Cognitive Therapy).
Healing is a delicate and powerful process of transformation that involves the emergence of an authentic autonomous self in the presence of an empathic other. Our work together will focus on the areas of your life that are inhibiting the power of your full potential. We all need our pain witnessed in an effort to move beyond where we feel stuck. Through compassion, active listening, challenging explorations and a space where vulnerability can be safe, I support my clients growth in an encouraging and straightforward approach.

I have a strong orientation in narrative therapy and am trained in somatic experiencing.
Hi, My name is Steve. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and addiction coach living in Los Angeles. I have always been curious about life and people. As I reflect on my lived experiences I have come to understand that connecting with others in a meaningful way has been the thing that has brought me the most fulfillment and joy. A very old friend recently told me that, having known me over the years, they felt that the thing that was most important to me was freedom. This resonated as true to me and I believe it informs my work as a therapist and coach.

I utilize approaches based in Attachment Theory, Mindfulness, CBT, IFS, Somatic Experiencing, TRM & EMDR.
You can and will thrive in your relationships, creativity and career. I believe in looking at the whole person, body and mind, to actualize real growth and to discover realistic solutions. For couples, you will develop more effective communication and conflict resolution skills, rekindle intimacy, trust and care as a team, or learn to navigate co-parenting and divorce well. For individuals you will overcome blocks and unhelpful patterns, resolve trauma, shame and fears, develop greater self-awareness, confidence and create real coping skills in the midst of stress and anxiety to regain empowerment and peace in your own life.

I draw on a range of approaches including somatic (or body-awareness based) therapies and mindfulness.
You want to overcome self-judgment with ADHD (and other forms of neuro-divergent mind/body processing) to find tools that really work for you. When you accept and integrate your specific way of being to figure out what works for you, you feel empowered. I provide a nonjudgmental space to support you to find internal calm and self-confidence by practicing tools that work. Some other areas of expertise include: shame and compulsive behavior (like w/sexuality, relationships, body issues, and substances), overcoming anxiety or a harsh inner voice to develop self-compassion, and processing big emotions from trauma, grief, and loss.

I incorporate traditional talk therapy methods with mindfulness techniques ( self-awareness, body scanning, and Guided Imagery) and somatic /body techniques (breath work and yoga poses) to facilitate the therapeutic process and help you find real and lasting change.
If you are feeling frustrated, stuck or unfulfilled you are not alone. Therapy can help you gain insight into your emotional triggers; make healthier choices in the moment and feel seen, understood and accepted. Therapy can also improve your relationships and help you experience relief from symptoms including overwhelm, anxiety, anger and depression. Effective therapy works on levels. My holistic sensory approach can help you start healing now with an integrated exploration of your emotions, sensory feelings and the mental perceptions surrounding your challenging issue. Your self discovery and emotional healing process begins by calling me.

Are you tired of being told..."Get over it. Move on. Look on the bright side?" I know how upsetting it can be when those around you cannot understand your pain as you struggle through your day. As your therapist, I do understand and I want to help. We can work together to identify and overcome the emotional hurdles that have been holding you back from living the life you have always wanted.

As a certified yoga instructor for 15+, certified meditation teacher, + somatic -based practitioner, I approach mental health from a holistic viewpoint, recognizing the strong link between body, mind, and spirit.
You have the right and potential to be happy and living the life you want to be. Growth comes when we are able to let go of the need to be certain and embrace self-exploration. We may find ourselves suffering silently or blatantly out loud to the stressors that co-exist with us in our day-to-day lives. Holistic therapy allows for that unique experience to gain and practice the ability to look at self, develop skills to be vulnerable, love + let love in. I offer online 1-on-1, as well as, online courses, workshops, and retreats to fit your needs + preferences.

Are you interested in exploring personal relationships, identities, or sexual issues from an open-minded and culturally sensitive perspective? Do you have past sexual traumas, toxic relationships, or codependency patterns that you would like to discuss in an objective and nonjudgemental space? When you allocate time to speak freely about these issues, you empower yourself to navigate any negative patterns or relationship dynamics from a place of clarity, compassion, and curiosity - instead of criticism. We will collaborate on the best way to unpack and understand your story from a growth mindset that is sustainable + strength-based!

In addition to talking, many people find somatic experiencing, brainspotting, the havening technique and principles from Buddhism useful in transforming themselves.
There are all times when we need a new perspective, someone to hear us and help us sort out life’s issues. Perhaps you are grappling with blocks in the way to accomplishing what you know you can or just need less anxiety as you do it. Some of us know what to do but not how to get there, others know how to get there but lack motivation, structure, or wisdom for a particular aspect of our lives. You may have tried to figure it out on your own, read books, gone to workshops and even been in therapy. I help people with a practical yet gentle collaborative approach.
