I take pride as a psychologist in the area of personal growth when dealing with life's challenges. This involves meeting your needs and starting where you are now and going from there. I work collaboratively in order for you to get to a 'better' place. I have accumulated a wealth of experience helping others combat challenges of not being able to have children by traditional means. I worked with patients exploring 'good' solutions to this heart-rending process. My goal involves helping individuals deal with the normal and not so normal life challenges of depression, self-esteem, anxiety , relationships, children, parents, and more.

I always tell people who are looking for a therapist that you should like your therapist, and you should feel that you’re making progress rather than just spinning your wheels. A clinician’s knowledge, approach, and personality are key to achieving that, so I offer free 20 minute phone consultations in order to determine whether we may be a good fit. I have 20 years experience treating adults, teens, and couples in the areas of anxiety , depression, relationships, and general self-growth. Other specialties include: mindfulness, introversion, highly sensitive people, and integrative health.

Anyone who experiences depression, anxiety , relationship problems, life transitions, issues of identity, or cultural conflicts can benefit from collaborative work with a skilled psychotherapist.
We try to make sense of our lives through telling our stories, but when we are unable to find the words, we express ourselves in other ways, such as in symptoms, dreams, and behaviors that we don't understand. My previous training in fine arts and filmmaking (MFA, USC School of Cinema) make an excellent fit with the type of in-depth therapy I provide. I have a wide range of professional experiences from my private practice, in residential and outpatient clinics, as an adjunct professor of psychology at Antioch University, and as a supervisor training other therapists.

Through the process of psychotherapy you will learn that your experiences, feelings, and behaviors can be understood instead of avoided or judged, allowing for the eventual acceptance of whatever may emerge.

I've walked hundreds of anxious perfectionists through the tools, strategies, and healing it takes to tame their anxiety , stand up to their inner critic, and balance work with genuine rest.
For anxious perfectionists, the treadmill of to-do lists and self-improvement seems to never end. Maybe you experience chronic guilt, shame, spiraling thoughts, imposter syndrome, and low confidence. Anxious perfectionism may also show up as difficulty with sleeping, boundary-setting, procrastination, and indecision. Downtime and self-care are tainted by guilt and the sense that you're never doing enough. It's exhausting & overwhelming. Anxious perfectionists are not people who already do things perfectly—they just feel like they have to. It's hard to imagine feeling unburdened, deeply rested, and unapologetically joyful.

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.

If you're looking for a Santa Monica anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Santa Monica.
