I treat depression, generalized anxiety , social anxiety , obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic attacks, phobias, PTSD, relationship anxiety , and anxiety related to medical problems.
My goal as a therapist is to provide a comfortable setting that allows you to get the greatest benefit from our work together. In addition to traditional office sessions, I offer flexible solutions including phone, teletherapy, or home visits. Emotional issues can trigger or make a significant contribution to anxiety , skin conditions, skin picking issues and hair pulling (trichotillomania) issues. Relaxation, visualizations, and a mixture of cognitive behavioral therapy and body-focused psychotherapy can make the difference. You can take more control by discovering how to manage your emotional triggers and by developing strategies to alleviate anxiety , skin issues, skin picking, and hair pulling.

I help those who feel that life has become a struggle, when transitions in relationships, academic life, or career may bring inhibiting anxiety or an overwhelming depression. I share observations and insights with the intention of helping clients as quickly as possible. My work as a therapist is informed by my own life passages as a wife, mother, widow, single parent, empty nester, and older graduate student. As someone who has embarked on a new career in later life, I understand both the fear and the rewards in managing life-enhancing changes.

I support individuals struggling with aspects of identity, family-of-origin issues, relationship challenges, overwhelming life transitions, marginalization, low self-esteem, anxiety , depression, trauma, and grief.
I help people come home to themselves. Life's challenges can leave us questioning our intuition and values and impact our self-worth, relationships, and well-being. Perhaps this is due to a difficult upbringing, perhaps due to trauma and loss, or it may be due to external stressors such as marginalization and oppression. I help clients to find their voice, re-discover self-trust, uncover inner wisdom, and cultivate strength and balance. Together we will explore your experiences, nurture inner resources, and identify and resolve destructive patterns that impact your relationships.

I specialize in anxiety and depression, OCD, trauma, grief and loss, self-esteem, self-actualization, and interpersonal relationships.
I believe effective psychotherapy fosters one part of the path towards wholeness. Past hurts, the voice of the inner critic, emotional dysregulation, and traumatic experiences can fragment the self, and break away our inner strengths and resources. I aim to help relocate those strengths and inner resiliencies by facilitating exploration and implementing appropriate best-practice tools. Together, we can navigate the psychological barriers and free up the inner entanglement. "Wholeness is not so much perfection as completeness." -C.G. Jung.

I feel most effective with clients experiencing complex trauma or PTSD, as well as self-esteem challenges and anxiety /depression.
I see you over there, checking me out. Hi! My name is Lisa. My passion for helping people kicked into high gear after experiencing Alzheimer’s of a grandparent and meeting families with ill children when volunteering at Children’s Hospital of L.A. We all need a little help now and then and nobody should feel ashamed to ask for it. I love meeting clients’ “furry children” since pets are a wonderful emotional support – I have two. I enjoy sweets (guilty pleasure – we all have one), I believe in self-care (yoga, meditation, walks outside and playing music) and love comedy since laughter helps!

I work with adults who experience depression, anxiety disorders (agoraphobia, panic disorder, social anxiety , specific phobias), OCD, relationship challenges or loss, phase-of-life stressors, procrastination, & LGBTQ or Race related trauma.
Compared to many other psychologists, my therapy style may be more goal oriented, assertive, and with a stronger focus on observing and measuring therapeutic progress over longer term emotional processing. My therapeutic style is based on my belief that we do have the power to create healthy emotions & dismantle unwanted emotions. When meeting with you, I'll want to understand how your ongoing circumstances, emotions, behaviors, or thoughts impact the short term as well as the overall outcomes in your life. I base my treatment on evidenced-based inventions, eastern & wellness perspectives, and a conscious awareness approach.

I specialize in anxiety , depression, PTSD, teens, young adults, adults, and families (including foster care).
As an openly transgender therapist, I know it can be difficult to find the right person to confide in. Wanting to be loved and accepted doesn’t make you needy, or extra, or selfish, or weak. It makes you human. To me, you are not just some random psychology textbook or theory. In our work together, my focus is to build goals and a relationship where you feel comfortable exploring what you think, feel, want, and need. My style as a therapist is warm, relaxed, and conversational. I use playfulness, imagery, art, metaphors, curiosity, creativity, self-compassion, and humor when appropriate to support the therapeutic process.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.
