"Often individuals or couples will feel depressed or anxious and they are not able to pinpoint what is making them feel that way. Things might be status quo or there may be a turn in a relationship but feelings don't feel the same. This is when you want to figure out what is going on the inside and work on the unresolved issues."

"Seeing your child struggle with anxiety, OCD, trichotillomania, or depression can feel so helpless. You wish you could find the right words that would fix it all, but nothing that you say, and no amount of logic that you use seems to help. Perhaps you have even tried therapy before, with little progress or success, and you're not sure if this is even a fixable problem. Your child's struggles have become the focus of the entire family. You just want your happy little boy or girl back and to have normalcy restored at home."

I spent well over a decade climbing the corporate ladder and I ultimately became a managing director and equity partner of a successful capital management firm in the Los Angeles area. Although I had reached goals and achieved significant professional success, I also experienced a lack of personal fulfillment from my career. I enjoyed my job, my clients, and my colleagues, but at the same time I felt that something was missing. At that time, it was my own experience in therapy that helped me grow to redefine what success truly means."

"One of the most important aspects in therapy is for patients to feel heard, respected, and understood. Given that each individual is unique, and no one issue is ever the same among different people, my approach is integrative and tailored to meet the needs of the person, not the "problem". I strive to create a compassionate, non-judgemental environment for patients to learn, grow, explore, challenge, and to live the life they want to be living. I specialize in working with adults - individual, couples, and family - with anxiety, depression, PTSD/trauma, relationship problems, substance abuse, ADD/ADHD, and LGBTQ issues."

"Especially when it comes to giving or receiving love, our chronic, unmet needs can lead to damaged relationships, depression, anxiety and obsessive thinking. We also might withdraw, abuse substances or act-out compulsively to find relief. These and many other forms of suffering often stem from denying one's true needs with a "false self". Psychotherapy, an immediate antidote to many of these symptoms, provides the conditions necessary to help revive one's "true self" and end the suffering. To have a chance at living a satisfying life, we must acknowledge and live in accordance with our true needs."

"I enjoyed very much my post licensure work at a family institute. Whether working with a child, an adolescent, an adult, a dyad or the whole family, I will initially focus on the person suffering the most. Based on the presenting symptom, I may do brief crisis intervention to stabilize a situation until an individual's underlying issue has been crystallized. The life issue causing depression, anxiety, and fears will then be addressed in more depth. My approach is to assist people in their own healing, maximizing on their own strengths and resources."
