I provide individual and couples therapy for a range of issues including relationship problems, anxiety and depression, and substance use issues.
Please note that in this time of crisis and social distancing, I am offering therapy via a HIPAA-compliant video-conferencing application. I have maintained a private practice providing individual, couple, and group psychotherapy in the Los Angeles area for the last 21 years. Life is not easy, and sometimes it gets really hard. But the measure of success is how we cope with life's challenges.

I specialize in helping adults struggling with trauma, depression, anxiety, substance use issues, balancing life, career, and/or relationships get through those struggles.
You’re successful, accomplished, and maybe even an overachiever, yet you’re constantly in your head all the time, overthinking almost everything, second-guessing decisions, obsessing about small details, and possibly even “people-pleasing”. You might be living with a general, constant sense of unease or stress (“but what am I stressing about?”). You might even feel frequently overwhelmed, and the little things just add up emotionally. Even though you’re performing at work and/or school, these feelings are likely still getting in the way of you living your best life.

I believe that every person who seeks therapy already possesses the necessary skills within themselves to make significant changes in their behavior and overall functioning. Offering guidance and direction, I will join you on your journey of gaining insight and replacing unhealthy coping mechanisms with more adaptive ways of coping that enhance wellness and mental clarity. I have worked extensively with individuals who have turned to substance use as a means of coping with difficult emotions, oftentimes stemming from a history of trauma.

One of the biggest things I have learned about being both a therapist and a client is the immense courage it can take to become vulnerable with another human being. I have a passion for working from a cultural awareness perspective and I have spent the majority of my training working with adults from various walks of life struggling with substance-use disorders.

I am EMDR trained and have extensive harm reduction experience to assist with alcohol and substance use or misuse.
Pandemic life is complex, but there is hope. You might find yourself struggling and aren’t sure how to move forward. It could be that you are going through a life change such as ending a relationship or exploring your gender expression. Maybe you’re questioning if you are drinking too much and not sure if you want to stop. Sometimes positive change can bring up feelings of anxiety. Holding on to all of these feelings and experiences can be overwhelming and talking with a Licensed Clinical Psychologist like myself is a step to releasing and exploring these feelings.

My approach is to meet each person where they are emotionally, to assess their vulnerabilities, and their assets, and to engage those assets in the pursuit of the solutions they seek. I am a licensed MFT and also hold a PhD in Clinical Psychology. I have supported the growth of many people over the last 20 years, including those challenged by substance use and related diagnoses, as well as supporting their families, and others faced by anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationship challenges, and struggles to find meaning in life.

Do you need a little more support and structure in your life? I run a variety of high energy groups to help keep you on track, including "I Hate Weekends" (a Sunday support group for people who tend to isolate on the weekends), "You Can't Stop The Waves, But You Can Learn To Surf" (a cognitive therapy group for depression and anxiety), and "Back to Life, Back to Reality" (a life transition group). It's amazing what can happen when people stop being polite and start getting real...

Are you facing an alcohol or other substance abuse challenge? Is problematic substance use threatening your professional success or putting you in problematic situations? Isolation and feeling unmoored increase your risk for substance abuse and make your emotional challenges more difficult to manage.
Do you feel overwhelmed, anxious, or lonely? Is it difficult to balance work with your personal/family needs? Are you finding it difficult to build friendships or understand the culture at work? Distraction on the job, insomnia, or withdrawing from family are signs that you may need help managing anxiety and stress. Many of us find it difficult to develop nurturing relationships and stop feeling isolated. In therapy, you can build coping skills and insights that can help you feel calmer and more in control. We will work to building the tools that you need to succeed professionally and personally. I am looking forward to helping!

I work with individuals with anxiety, substance use problems, and LGBTQ+ related concerns utilizing a personalized, integrative approach to therapy.
You can be yourself and live the fulfilling life you desire. Life doesn’t have to feel like a struggle. You don’t need to live with anxiety, self-doubt, or self-sabotaging behaviors. You can learn to overcome your specific emotional and situational challenges so you can thrive now and in the future. You don’t have to work through your problems on your own. As a licensed psychologist, I understand the importance of listening and working collaboratively, so you can overcome the challenges you face.

I work with adolescents and adults (ages 12-40) struggling with depression, anxiety, substance use disorders, trauma-related symptoms, family conflict, school/work-related challenges, & life-transitions.
I recognize the decision to begin or return to therapy can be rather challenging. For many of us, we avoid processing pain or confronting issues until a crisis arises, feelings become too unbearable, or life seems unmanageable. Therapy requires courage, strength, and trust in yourself & in your therapist. As such, regardless of where you are in your process, I will meet you there. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is paramount, symptoms are adaptations, and while change can be difficult, it is more than possible.

I have success working with clients who have difficulty with substance use , collecting/hoarding, co-/parenting, significant life changes, and struggle with identity.
Clients that have worked with me realize how they can be in the driver’s seat of their life and challenge the guilt, anger, and pain that keeps them stuck. Many of my clients overlook their well-being due to overextending themselves at home and work, or have difficulties with confidence, acceptance, and managing hard emotions. I help clients develop skills to deal with challenging situations, establish a healthy relationship with self, and challenge negative beliefs that are keeping you “stuck." I strive to create a safe and encouraging space where you are able to freely share, express unfiltered thoughts and explore personal pains.

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 6 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.

I have a warm and caring approach with my clients, and I value personal preferences in the therapy experience.
