Welcome to my practice. I have about 15 years of clinical experience and have been featured on NBC/KCAL/HLN as an expert psychologist. I work primarily with men who have hit “rock bottom” and would like help getting up. These men are often in crisis when we first meet. The issues I address are typically related to unhealthy sexual behaviors, infidelity, financial recklessness, gambling, drugs/alcohol, dishonesty/lying, and relational conflicts. My therapy approach is a combination of psychoanalytic, cognitive -behavioral, and the 12-Step recovery model. I also share insight from my own painful but redemptive recovery journey.

CBT , meditation, and psychodynamic therapy are some of the approaches I take to help you realize your full potential in your relationship with yourself and ultimately with others.
Many clients, colleagues and friends have told me that with my innate intuitiveness, authenticity and openness it is very easy to talk with me about difficult and painful issues. The most important aspect of feeling comfortable and safe with a therapist is having a rapport as well as feeling understood. I have an eclectic approach to each unique person with whom I work. I think it is important to determine what your personal goals are, how can we best achieve them, while keeping in mind that the ultimate goal is for you to become your own best therapist.

Do you struggle with anxiety, perfectionism, and not feeling "good enough"? Are you unhappy with your weight, food, and your body image, or compulsively overeat? Are your relationships unfulfilling? Have you lost touch (or feel you've never found) your inner wisdom? Has this "soul sickness" perhaps even led to physical symptoms? If so, there is hope. Together we can bolster your resilience, courage, and the ability to make desired changes in your life.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in Santa Monica or for a Santa Monica CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy. They include CBT therapists, CBT psychologists, CBT psychotherapists and CBT counselors.
