I also have a special interest in supporting parents with struggling teens and young adults.

Whether you are seeking individual, couple, adolescent, or family therapy, you can expect to find a safe, non-judgmental environment where we can work together to understand your difficulties and help you achieve emotional well being.
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.

I am particularly experienced in individual work, developing a therapeutic relationship, and targeting interpersonal issues by exploring current relationships and emphasizing the impact of one's family of origin.
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.

We address communication, intimacy,money, family , and the future I work with children, adults, adolescents, and seniors.
You've already tried it on your own. Maybe you've found partial solutions,but it does get discouraging finding yourself, or your relationship, repeating the same patterns over and over. Seeing a very experienced, sharp, interactive therapist means finding much quicker relief for problems related to relationships , depression, anxiety and panic, parenting, childhood, and life directions. Working with me means forming a solution-oriented partnership for real change. I have successfully done this work for many years, and help people on both long or short term issues. To meet your needs, I have evening & W/E appointments.

I utilize a blend of therapeutic approaches, meeting client’s “where they are," integrating psychodynamic, mindfulness, EMDR, family systems, positive psychology, + mind-body awareness.
It takes courage to discover personal insight, to address current challenges, and/or to heal past wounds. And, we arrive to therapy for various reasons. Sometimes, we come as individuals, sometimes as a couple or a family . Together, we address your goals so that you can gain a better understanding of what may need to transform in order to live your best life-- whether it's a life transition, such as divorce or career change, the desire for different coping skills, addressing compulsions or addictions, experiencing loss and moving through the grief process, identifying a sense of purpose, or making sense of a traumatic experience.
