My practice specializes in the treatment of depression, grief and issues of abuse, with diagnosis for mood and anxiety disorders.
I have designed a private psychotherapy office especially for the creative client. This type of personality is more visually sensitive to their environment. The unique eclectic furniture styles, colors, fabrics, lighting, varied types of art work, and musical instruments, help create an uplifting and soothing atmosphere for therapy.

It is the goal of us all to have the chance to live in the wonder of our real selves. But we often find ourselves in an outside life that doesn't match the inside one. We can spend years struggling with making decisions, dealing with sadness and anger, anxiety and grief , as well as distrust, fear and longing, all overwhelming feelings and the behavior that goes with them, not knowing how to change but knowing we must. My job is to help you get back to and live the wonder that is the real you.

I've had specialized post-masters and post-doctoral training in the following areas: child and adolescent psychotherapy and accompanying parent work; loss and grief support; and pre and post-divorce counseling.
In my 30+ years of experience, I have tried to create a non-judgmental environment of openness and collaboration with my clients. I have found that most people are looking for understanding, clarification and a path to hope and healing.

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.

I provide integrative and adaptive psychotherapy for clients struggling with adjustment and acculturation issues, generational conflict, relational difficulties, trauma, grief , and anxiety and mood disorders.
**** NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS **** Making space to sit with yourself, for yourself, is a courageous step down the road less traveled. I believe in the power of authenticity, and of cultivating trust and a mutually-built atmosphere in the therapy room to support your growth. In our sessions, I will work to provide you in turn with a secure base, a mirror, a teammate, a confidante, a witness.

I am comfortable working with issues of grief and loss .
I work with individuals and couples on a variety of relationship and interpersonal issues. I believe that each of has the innate desire and ability to lead satisfying and fulfilling lives. We are often stuck in old patterns of behavior and relating. Working together we can explore those patterns and how to move beyond them. There are times in our lives when feelings of isolation, depression, loneliness pervade. It is helpful to have a trained professional to discuss these feelings with.

I specialize in palliative care/ bereavement , anxiety, depression, life transitions, and self-esteem around multicultural issues such as acculturation, identity and development.
Like water, every individual is unique, whole, and complete. Sometimes we have a hard time acknowledging this and embracing who we are. It is in this place we are asked to go inward and begin to understand the patterns that inhibit our growth. I utilize a blend of therapeutic approaches, meeting clients where they are, by integrating psychodynamic, mindfulness, and experiential therapy to recognize problems relating to grief , bereavement , anxiety, and multiculturalism.

It also allowed me to strengthen my clinical skills in assisting my patients with life challenges, aging, trauma, deep emotional problems, grief and loss .
I combine an integrative model with a holistic view of the person to aid in healing and transformation. Integrative Psychotherapy uses insight-oriented modalities in conjunction with Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Hypnosis, Mindfulness, Biofeedback, Guided Imagery, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), and dream analysis using Jungian approach. All of these techniques facilitate unique experiences and allow me to tailor therapy sessions for each individual patient. You will be reminded in my therapy room that : "You are as unique as your fingerprint." (M. Erickson)

I help facilitate the development of a conscious balance in your life. Loss , trauma, dysfunctional relationships, addiction, creative blocks and much more can keep you stuck and stall development. I work with clients to help them mine the unconscious and reveal the connection between this material and behaviors and patterns that obstruct vitality. This starts with the establishment of a sound trusting therapeutic relationship. From this foundation, I support and guide you in uncovering and recovering your own resources and strengths.

Late life is often a dynamic time and one of transition. For many older adults, it is fraught with illness, loss and emotional and physical challenge. But it can also be a time of enormous potential. With fewer obligations, long time personal goals can finally be realized and difficult family relationships repaired and healed. Evidence suggests that it's possible to make change at any stage of life. Together through the collaborative process of psychotherapy, we will work towards your goals using an integrated approach that includes psychodynamic, cognitive, behavioral, and solution focused strategies.

Grief Therapists
Grief is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.

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