Are you willing to be honest with yourself and try to trust me? If so, I'm ready to see if we are the right fit and to get to work to help you meet your goals. If you're experiencing anxiety, be it in social situations, about existential fears like the climate, or generally in various facets of your life, let's manage it together. I am also familiar with the heaviness and seeming intractability of depression and have successfully worked with clients to find a path through it. I have personal experiences with grief, and I feel honored to accompany anyone who finds themselves in the trenches of loss.

Seeking therapy can feel daunting. Even when we know something has to change, it can feel more comfortable to stick with old habits. Clients are often surprised to hear me say - we keep "bad" habits for good reasons. We develop predictable patterns to feel safe when we lack outside supports to help us feel grounded, connected, accomplished, or hopeful. I support clients to increase their awareness of their own patterns, perceptions, reactions, learned behaviors, and true desires, so they have more choice in how they respond to people and situations and can take steps to build better relationships and more fulfilling lives.

Life can get complicated and there is no handbook on how to handle things like depression, anxiety, addiction and relationship problems. It is important to know two things: 1. you are not alone, 2. challenges are always opportunities to grow and change your life. You are probably here because it's time to "do something different." Let us help guide you through this journey!

Therapy is a dynamic process where old wounds can begin to heal and new experiences can become more meaningful and fulfilling. Yes, it can be difficult and painful, but it can also be extremely rewarding and life-changing. Through insight, empathy, support, and understanding, as well as through the relationship you and I will share, I approach the therapeutic process as an avenue to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe and trusting environment. As a result of this process, you can gain more self-awareness, which can help foster deeper connections in relationships with yourself and others.

Sometimes life can be like a roller coaster riding. One minute it seems like you are going up to the top of the world. Another minute you feel like you are plunging down not knowing if there will be an end to it. This can be scary and overwhelming. It is my passion to help people move from an anxious, depressed or troubled state to one that has hope and acceptance. I believe in emotional, physical, and spiritual recovery. I work with individuals, groups, couples, and adolescents.

I approach psychotherapy from a whole-person perspective and I believe therapy, along with other practices, can help us awaken to a life of meaning. In therapy I will help you identify the source of your longing to be whole, and together, we will move closer to that source, so you become re-sourced. Together we will explore your innate natural cycles and help you align to your own rhythm, so that you might meet depletion with rest and energy with creativity.

Most of us were taught that gender is binary, but thankfully we know that is not true! Gender is fluid, a spectrum that encompasses identities such as gender non-conforming, genderqueer, & agender. Individuals within the trans & non-binary community grapple with the fear of embracing their authentic selves, contending with societal & familial pressures. However, we now find ourselves in a time where concealing our trans and non-binary identities is unsustainable. Everyone exploring their gender identity deserves a safe, empathetic space to navigate the impacts of gender-phobia & the aftermath it leaves behind. Trans is beautiful!

The world can be a tough place to navigate, and you don't need to feel alone while doing so! I enjoy working with persons from adolescence through adulthood who are interested in exploring and confronting various barriers and emotions that may be negatively impacting their lives. I pride myself in being able to help my clients explore their problematic behaviors and work towards achieving their own individual goals for therapy. Once gaining further insight and self-understanding, my hope for my clients is for them have self-compassion and empowerment to manage stressors while achieving their self-identified goals.

I am profoundly aware of the tremendous courage it takes to seek help. Particularly, when you are coming from a life you have often been forced to endure heavily weighed upon by anxiety, trauma, depression, and addiction. This deeply rooted awareness of this pain is why I first entered the field of psychology and has successfully guided my work in assisting my clients to overcome their many barriers and difficulties. My approach offers the skills and self-awareness needed to establish the capacity towards supporting you to reach the kind of life you imagined possible.

I am a West-Los Angeles LCSW, offering both in-person and tele-therapy sessions, working with both individuals and couples. My style as a therapist is warm and challenging, direct and engaging. I know that no two clients are the same, and treat each client with a specific approach tailored to their wants and needs. The primary topics I work with are addiction, depression/anxiety, physical pain and couple's issues (I am a LEVEL 3 Gottman Method therapist). If you're ready to take that leap and give therapy a try, or return to therapy, give me a call or shoot me an email. You can learn more about me on my webstie.

If you can resonate with any of these feelings I want to work with you, and create a new sense of fulfillment and passion back into your life, relationships, and career. My approach is direct, clear, and practical with no judgments or shame.
