I have experience working with adults , adolescents, and families in Santa Monica and West Hollywood.
I’m here to help you creatively navigate your challenges and feel more at home in your life. Your experience of therapy will be uniquely your own. Our work together can focus on specific goals or it can be exploratory and non-linear. While talking will usually be a large part of therapy, we may also include writing, reflective exercises, meditation practices, story telling, role playing, therapeutic touch, and art making. As we work together, we'll continue to discover what approaches work best for you. I offer therapy over the phone, also known as remote therapy, to accommodate challenges you may have with coming to my office.

I am a licensed MFT with offices in Santa Monica and Ojai. For the past fifteen + years I have been working as a therapist with adolescents, adults and families. I am also a clinical supervisor to interns in my private practice, and I provide psychotherapy for therapists in training. My work as a therapist focuses on relationships of all kinds. For my clients, I hope to be an agent of positive change by working them towards an understanding of the dynamics that keep them from moving forward and then by mentoring them to co-create bigger lives for themselves.

I am a Brown and USC educated marriage counselor with 13 years of experience providing effective psychotherapy and counseling to individual adults and couples in Los Angeles.
Every couple is different, every couple is complicated, and every couple has trouble talking about one or more key issues. In your first session I will quickly assess what isn't working in your relationship and build a plan to eliminate the problem. I will help facilitate effective communication, make sure the sessions are emotionally safe, and teach practical methods for getting your thoughts and feelings across. My job is not to figure out who is right and who is wrong, my job is to help. ​I tend to work with couples each week for 8-12 weeks.

I specialize in working with late teens and adults .
I enjoy helping my clients become their authentic selves in a world that tries its best to control who you are and how you identify. I am here to help my clients live their truth and become comfortable with who they are. I will bring my authentic self to sessions as well, which I would describe as warm, thoughtful, friendly, and casual. I utilize an eclectic approach which includes psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, trauma-focused, and strength-based. Our past can shape us, but it doesn’t have to define who we are. I help my clients process past experiences that make them feel “stuck” in order to start moving forward.

Do you feel, think, and sense things at a deeper, sometimes overwhelming level? You may be a highly sensitive person (HSP). My passion is working with HSPs to soothe indecision, insecurity, and boundary issues, so they can tap into their creativity, flexibility, and perceptiveness. Other areas of expertise include social and performance anxiety, high achievers/gifted adults , adult children of emotionally immature parents, and parents of highly sensitive children. If you have suffered a loss (breakup, loved one or pet, job, dream), I can help you make sense of things and move forward with confidence and hope.

Along with seeing adults in private practice, I have provided individual and group therapy to college students in a university for over twenty-five years.
Life will sometimes nudge and then shout at us when we need to pause and look within ourselves. It often comes at times when we feel sad, hurt, anxious, or depressed. It may be at times when relationship struggles, self-doubt, or loss arise. Whether you are returning to therapy or preparing to enter it for the first time, with this step change is already underway. As I see it, the therapy process is a journey to resolve painful experiences, gain insight, and develop strengths and new abilities, all which help to navigate life’s challenges. Healing is possible as well as clarity on how to move forward.

Clients that enjoy working with me vary; adolescents/teens, young adults , launching adults , established adults , and aging adults as individuals, families, and in couples.
My passion is in body psychotherapy. Clients enjoy our work connecting their body/inner strengths and their mind/rational strengths to achieve growth. My clients value the kindness, compassion, and safety I create, so they feel comfortable and heard. I have success working with clients that experience cancer, adoption, grief, stress, excessive worry, depression, conflict with others, life transitions, parenting issues, chronic illness and pain. Caregivers and family members of cancer patients find working with me helpful, healing, and nurturing. Clients that are not comfortable just talking really appreciate the tools I give them.

In my many years of experience, I have been fortunate to witness the curative benefits of the therapeutic relationship. My interest lies in working with individuals, from young children to adults , who are suffering from anxiety, depression, relationship issues, grief, loss, and trauma. The children and adolescents I have had in my practice have struggled with issues of divorce, adoption, peer pressures, anxiety, depression, sibling rivalry, and social difficulties. Utilizing a somatic understanding and focus has deepened the work with many clients, especially those who have experienced trauma.

I work with adolescents & adults addressing anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationship issues, grief, behavioral/academic problems & trauma.
Embrace life. Laugh again. Restore joy. Often we struggle in silence believing change is not possible. Those around you tell to get over it, move on or even stop talking about it. However, talking to the right person can be transformational. Through therapy, you will be able to regain those parts of your self that have been lost or neglected, creating change that will make a difference in your life.

Besides working with individual adults , I am also passionate about working with children and adolescents using trauma-informed sandtray therapy, play therapy, and narrative work.
Do you find yourself feeling overwhelmed, stuck, or defeated? Has worry taken over your life? Or maybe past trauma is resurfacing and is now also impacting your relationships while leaving you confused and frightened. While we often rationally believe in our strengths and potential for growth, our gut tends to reliably remind us that we are to blame, not good enough, unsafe, or powerless - because it feels so true. My deepest hope for our work together is for you to not only know that you are worthy of love and a fulfilled life but that you can also feel it in your body and live accordingly.
