Death and divorce catch most of us totally unprepared because we are not taught how to handle loss. We can feel so ill-equipped. Whether your loss is from death of a loved one, divorce or breakup, loss of trust, loss of safety or other meaningful emotional losses, healing is finding new reasons for living. Learn skills and tools to end the pain, isolation and loneliness. Discover healing and joy again.

With a background working with all ages and dynamics through issues of depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, childhood issues, relational issues, divorce , remarriage, blended families, faith-based issues, addictions/escaping behaviors, and codependence, I work from a psychodynamic, intersubjective lens believing healing happens in the context of relationship.
No matter what you are facing, you are worthy and there is hope. You are here because you believe change is possible, or may even know change is necessary, for your life to be more whole and authentic. But change can seem daunting, even scary. Whether you're experiencing emotions like anxiety or depression, relational chaos, or traumatic circumstances that seem to overwhelm your thoughts and life, therapy is a safe space to process these issues. I approach our time together with compassion and care, with the goal of seeing life through your eyes, so that the change is solely yours. You are not alone and all things are possible.

As a Relationship Specialist, Author, Podcaster and Speaker the first relationship I want my clients to look at is the relationship with themselves. Depression, Self Esteem Issues, Marital Conflict and even grief, are often a sign that you are truly on the search for who you are in this world. Whether you are a newly divorced adult, a couple striving to understand each other or a teen searching for self esteem, if you don't look within, you can never find your way to happiness.

Congratulations on taking the initial steps to address the painful or troubling issue in your life. I find it very important that you take the time to explore the right match for you when choosing a psychotherapist. Ask yourself: Will I be comfortable in sharing painful or personal issues with this therapist over time? Do the area(s) of expertise match with my needs? Will my values and worldviews be respected during the course treatment? I offer a free, no-obligation, initial consultation to discuss issues at hand, and to determine if we are a good fit for each other.

I'm a licensed psychologist and a marriage therapist. I have a specialty practice in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. I hold a diplomate from the American Board of Medical Psychotherapists and I'm registered with the National Register of Health Service Psychologists. All this fades into the background when I am with my patients. What matters is understanding and connecting with the person in front of me. I treat adults and adolescents who are mature enough to participate in talk therapy. My work is primarily with individuals and marital couples, but I also work with whole family systems when it is appropriate.

I am a licensed doctor of clinical psychology (Ph.D. from USC), working in SCV for over 30 years. I love people and it has always been my dream to help them achieve the ability to handle their lives in the most satisfying way. We are all human. We all have our own struggles. We experience depression, anxiety, relationship issues, addictions, or simply difficult transitions in life. It is important to know that no one is forever "sick," no relationship ever "broken," or anyone for that matter who is beyond repair. Together, I will work with you (or your loved one) through the issues that have brought you into therapy.

Divorce Therapists

How does therapy for people affected by a divorce work?

Individuals may feel a number of emotions following a divorce, such as shock, guilt, grief, anger, and fear. Therapists offer a non-judgmental space for individuals to talk about what they’ve experienced and process their emotions. Therapists will help clients develop coping strategies. They can also help a client rebuild their sense of self and self-worth and talk about what a happier future might look like.

What’s the most common type of therapy following a divorce?

There are several types of therapy that may be useful for divorce, including cognitive behavioral, acceptance and commitment, solution-focused brief, and mindfulness-based therapies. Many therapy types are talk-therapy based, which is typically the most popular option for individuals dealing with divorce. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a widely-used talk therapy, however, there’s no specific therapy type that’s designed to help people with divorce, and different types will work depending on the person.

When should an individual seek help due to a divorce?

When the feelings of a divorced individual, or an individual going through the process of divorce, begin to disrupt healthy daily functioning, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If a person finds that they are not performing at work due to problems with anxiety or motivation, if they’re no longer seeing friends due to feelings of shame, or if they’re not properly taking care of themselves as a result of depression, speaking to a professional could help.

How do you encourage someone to go to therapy due to a divorce?

It’s helpful to express concern and love for the individual while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Sharing how the individual appears to be suffering, and what effects it has on them or on their children, should be done with compassion and empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.
