Life is truly uncertain, yet the current pandemic has highlighted and intensified this experience for many of us. COVID-19 is changing how we look at and experience life, work and relationships, thus creating new thoughts and feelings about our lives. Whether you are encountering anxiety, depression, addiction, relationship issues and/or other possibly debilitating physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual obstacles they can be worked with during this time of uncertainty. Additionally, with over 15 years of experience in various healthcare settings I work with burnout, compassion fatigue, moral distress and other stressors.

Ideally, I hope for clients who want change, or who are in a huge shift in their lives. The most secret, vulnerable parts of ourselves require a trusted, open sanctuary for healing to begin. Life can be difficult, cruel at times, but the luminous is real, and contains genuine relief. We always have options. We cannot always see them. A good fit for me is someone who wants a therapist who will really listen, but who brings a lot of lived experience. I have desire to see people thrive and grow, set a new course. My clients usually find their courage, as we work, slower or faster. Resilience is always there.

I have a curiosity in learning about people's stories, the healing power of hope, and bring compassion to the experience of a life out of balance. Therapy can help us develop wise responses to reach our goals and find solutions to life's problems. There are many reasons to seek therapy. Therapy creates a container to explore and attend to the difficulties in our lives. Therapy supports lasting change through awareness. Everyone has the potential for change: to heal, listen and feel understood-- I want to work on building that community by supporting the exploration of fulfillment, courage and wisdom.

I work with clients in distress to provide confidential and trustworthy counsel. I meet with clients outside where distancing is possible (e.g the beach) and by phone / video. My professional experience includes managing the mental health needs of inmates at a county jail, individual counsel for those suffering from addiction at a methadone clinic, and providing family therapy for at-risk children in Los Angeles County. When I was a pre-licensed therapist I volunteered at a non-profit to offer low-cost counseling services, assisted with intake at a Jewish Family Center in Long Beach, and counseled autistic young adults.

This becomes a partnership. I am committed to helping you out of the darkness and into the light again. My training offers a wide variety of ways to achieve this task.

Hello and thanks for looking up my profile. I am a licensed psychologist, a professor of psychology, and a frequent speaker....I am both a clinician and an academic. I am strongly psychodynamically oriented, influenced by both psychoanalytic (in the intersubjective tradition) and Jungian styles. I work well with articulate, curious, and thoughtful people who take their internal lives seriously...or who want to learn to do so. Good therapy with high functioning people is often more about surrendering and unlearning than "trying to change." I encourage moral courage, self-expression and meaning-making.

All of these can contribute to the accumulation of stress in our lives and in our bodies. The bad news is that research shows stress is harmful to the body and the brain. The good news is that stress can be successfully managed in a healthy way through the process of health & wellness coaching.
