The heart of my practice centers around helping you increase self-acceptance, access inner strength, enhance emotion regulation skills, alter unhelpful behavior patterns, clarify what matters most in your life and act toward that end. Even if the events in your life don't change, your perspective on them and reaction to them can. Common areas of focus include relationship issues, depression, anxiety, career/life transitions, child/ adolescent issues, divorce, parenting, assertiveness training/setting boundaries, intimacy/changing unhealthy relationship patterns.

If you are a parent looking for support in managing a challenge with your child, tween or teenager or if you are parents looking to align on parenting strategies, I am here to offer you support. Inevitably, difficult moments arise as they are indicators of learning or growth that wants to happen for your child, your relationship or for your family as a whole. Every child or teen and every family is unique in their dynamics and difficulties so, I believe this work needs to be collaborative to find the solutions that will be effective specifically for you and your family.

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.

As parents are aware, the pandemic has had a huge detrimental impact on the kids and teens in our community. My group practice provides services for families of children and teens to help mitigate the negative impact of social isolation, anxiety, and disconnectedness. We provide tools for parents to immediately implement at home while also working one on one with the child/ teen to teach emotional regulation, coping mechanisms, social connectedness, and an overall safe space to process feelings.

I specialize in adult counseling, couple counseling, teen counseling, and women's issues. I became a therapist because I am passionate about helping people lead the life they want and deserve. I believe we all need to be seen, heard, and accepted. When these needs are not met we may experience loneliness, anxiety, and depression, which stops us from having a meaningful life. My diverse life experiences as a top security screener, a wife and a mother, a world traveler and a philosopher, enable me with a unique perspective to nurture, support, and promote a life worth living.

When you experience a significant trauma or many cumulative smaller traumas it can feel like you may never heal. Big life changes and stressors can feel overwhelming and bring on high levels of Anxiety and/or Depression. Being a teen or a young adult finding your identity and your voice can make life feel impossible and you feel worthless. My expertise is trauma, particularly sexual assault and abuse and with teens and young adults struggling with transitions, self-esteem, and family dynamics.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Manhattan Beach and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
