Do you feel burned out or stuck in a life that no longer works for you? Does your body feel pained, exhausted, or overly anxious. Do you feel like a phony or that the real you hasn't yet emerged. Well, you've only been this age once. Maybe it's time to give your life an overhaul. Somatic psychology is a cutting-edge approach that works to restore the nervous system to a state of healthy regulation, energy, flow and feeling at home in your body. This provides a foundation of authentic self-esteem that becomes the basis for a meaningful career and a network of healthy relationships—a life that feels great on the inside.

You may already have answers to your struggles, though these answers are unconscious. I specialize in working with your unconscious, the side of you that is neglected, ignored or rejected. This is a powerful mode of therapy that can help you with your anxiety, depression or relationships. I work with adults, and have specialized training to work with children, adolescents and their parents. My work with children focuses on play therapy, the child's best form of communication. With adults I use my Jungian training in dreamwork and symbolism to access the unheard side of yourself, which can enrich your life and relieve your suffering.

When I begin a session with a new client, I want to present myself as a real person. I want to create a situation where the client feels comfortable being him/herself and communicating whatever is going on. I will observe closely, being as present as possible. I will listen carefully and respond when appropriate. I may ask questions or make interpretations about what we talk about, but most importantly I want the client to feel free to say whatever is on his/her mind. I want to establish a trusting relationship so we can begin to work on this person’s issues.

I enjoy helping youth, college students, adults, and older adults learn to manage emotional stress, anxiety, depression, ADHD, PTSD, Trauma, and LGBTQ+ issues. Collaborating with clients on goals helps them tap into their authentic selves, helping them identify personalized self-care skills to restructure negative thinking patterns. I think it is important to meet people where they are focusing on their strengths to inspire and motivate them to meet their particular needs or goals. I help my clients find inner happiness through a positive mindset.

I work with people from all walks of life. Everyone is unique and so each client has a treatment plan that is tailored to their individual needs. People who see me for psychological treatment are often experiencing low mood, anxiety, difficulty relaxing, excessive criticism and low self esteem. Many have experienced a significant loss or a traumatic life event.​ I will help you to better understand how your present responses (emotional, behavioral, emotional and physical) are influenced by your past experiences. Working collaboratively with you, I will facilitate a safe space for you to reflect, process and grow.

Get relief from pain and find meaning! I grew up in Los Angeles participating in teams sports and musical groups, which made me curious about relationships. This curiosity about relationships continues to inform my approach to psychotherapy. I believe that much emotional pain stems from difficulties in developing or maintaining fulfilling relationships. Therefore, I examine one's relational dynamics, ways of relating, and impact on others. I openly explore clients' feelings toward me, encouraging individuals to experience authenticity with others, and ultimately, with themselves.

I teach couples tools and I give homework. My background is in Positive Psychology. People describe me as warm, down-to-earth and they say I have a good sense of humor. I think couples therapy should be uplifting -- and show results. I help all kinds of couples: married and unmarried, straight, gay, and couples soon to marry. I'm dedicated to helping couples overcome their problems. I'm even-handed and I find solutions. (And on a personal note, I've been happily married for 30 years). I combine Positive Psychology, CBT, mindfulness, Gottman, and the best of contemporary psychology. I taught in the medical school at UCLA.

I believe anxiety and stress to be the foundation of many issues we all face. My first goal is to help my patients reduce stress thereby decreasing chronic pain, depression and even the ravages of disease and illness. By developing rapport and trust and then utilizing healthy coping skills, the goal of anxiety reduction can be achieved. Its important to remember that we are engaged in a collaborative process where we learn to accept, resolve, move on and let go. I find that mindfulness, meditation and breathing is highly effective in decreasing anxiety and depression.

Congratulations on taking action! We both know that if things are going to change for you in a positive direction, you will need to be brave, open-minded and willing to do things you have resisted doing for one reason or another. I can be most helpful in that regard. Now is the perfect time. Your life is about to change dramatically. Together, in a collaborative and supportive relationship, we will identify your critical needs, uncover and resolve resistances, and map out the incremental steps to getting your needs met. Make the call that will change your life.

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 believe people want to express who they are and pursue satisfying work and relationships, but have emotional and cognitive patterns that keep them stuck. These patterns often consolidate into a persona that leaves people feeling not quite themselves, with needs unrealized, feelings ignored, and potential unused. Symptoms of anxiety and depression, addictions, or low self-esteem, are often the only messengers trying to let us know that we are needing change. In a supportive and safe environment, therapy can help to bring these patterns into awareness and liberate needs to connect, create, and expand with fuller emotional support.

I am a practical clinician who draws from an array of psychological approaches to assist my clients in achieving their goals. In addition to being practical, my therapeutic approach is aimed at understanding and integrating the dissonant thoughts and feelings at the core of most problems. I employ a focused and systematic method to identify the barriers to an individual's development and bring about change through an understanding and relinquishing of old models of coping. I am also able to utilize psychological measures of personality and aptitude to assist my clients in making decisions about their treatment and goals.

It's not easy to digest raw and painful feelings alone. In therapy, we'll work together to make sense of your fears, dreams, experiences, and relational patterns. I'll help you nurture the compassionate parts of yourself and be curious about how your past lives on in the present. Bit by bit, therapy can help you access and accept more of yourself, courageously face the realities of your life, and experience greater fulfillment in your work and relationships.

What we seek in our partner is connection. Deep, relaxed, secure connection is the springboard to passion. I help couples re-connect and stay connected by enhancing the positive, eliminating the negative and becoming each other's advocate. I help singles identify patterns that have haunted past relationships and help find and forge a new kind of loving partnership. Anxiety, depression and addictions all stem from, or are fueled by, deficient early connections. Learning the skill and discipline to navigate a conscious romantic relationship can heal much of the past and free us from many restricting thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

Individuals contact me because they are feeling joyless, depressed, hopeless or have unexplainable mood swings. Some are constantly worried, anxious, or panicked and may not know why, or how to calm themselves. Others struggle with chronic feelings of being inadequate or deficient and not feeling worthy of receiving positive recognition. Some are troubled by how over-reactive they can be to people, events or circumstances in their life. Others feel little control over their behavior whether it is outbursts of anger, compulsive sex, gambling, or substance abuse. And some have difficulty achieving and sustaining friendships or intimate relationships.
