Are you having the dawning realization that you aren’t living life as fully as you could be? Are you experiencing troubled relationships, a narrowing sense of possibility, or wounded self-esteem? Or maybe you simply have the gnawing sense that it’s time for a change, but no idea how to make it happen... This is a great time to step into therapy. I use a collaborative, depth-oriented approach to help individuals and couples overcome obstacles, build on their strengths, and move through a variety of challenges.

Please visit my personal website to get a better feel for me. Psychotherapy begins with noticing what goes on inside your mind and body. I will help you to recognize and make sense of different aspects of yourself, including your unique patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting. Together, we will examine how the events of your life continue to shape you. With a clearer understanding of who you are, you will have more freedom to deliberately guide your life and increase its meaning and joy.

I use Positive Psychology to inspire and improve lives. I'm told I'm warm, down to earth, and that I have a good sense of humor. . I believe therapy needs to show results. Not years later — but soon. I see both individuals and couples. My approach combines Positive Psychology and CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), with mindfulness and a powerful mix of the best approaches known to modern psychology. I take an uplifting holistic approach.

Are you looking for a more straightforward approach to your struggles? I receive feedback from many of my clients about how I'm different than other therapists. I take this to mean that I have been able to establish real, honest relationships with my clients. I treat my clients with respect, fairness, and an opportunity to be their true selves.

Our capacity to connect, both with ourselves (i.e. our passions, feelings, and body) and with others, is crucial to our feelings of well-being. When we connect, we generally feel a sense of aliveness in ourselves and the world. When we can't connect, we feel anxious, isolated, empty, or depressed. I feel my job is to help clients to more fully connect to the range of their experiences. I help adults, adolescents, and couples explore why they lose connection. I help them identify, understand, and overcome the deep root of their disconnection. I help them find well-being, which gives me great joy.

I am always curious about what brings clients into psychotherapy at a particular juncture of their lives and what they are hoping to be different as a result of conversations with someone like me. Once the responses to this curiosity are articulated and there is a clear purpose and direction for therapy, I listen for what a client already knows and what the client strengths and personal resources currently are and what they have been in the past. This becomes the context for conversations which have the possibility of leading toward preferred changes in the client's life and in its direction.

I believe that change can happen when you least expect it, and therapy is a wonderful way to look at what is holding you back and understand yourself. I bring an empathic, caring persona to the therapeutic process and believe that the relationship developed in therapy is a powerful tool for insight and growth. I have worked with many patients to develop an increased capacity for self-reflection and to apply skills learned in therapy to creating a more fulfilled life. I see children, teens and adults in my practice.

Life is too complicated not to need some help and support from time to time. I believe it takes a certain amount of bravery to recognize when we need help, and even more to seek it out. In order to provide the best possible support specific to you and your situation, I am most interested in getting to know you, your goals, and your expectations for therapy. I have a relaxed approach and have created a warm environment in which you can feel comfortable right away.

I strive to be a therapist who is empathic and non-judgmental while utilizing insight to help patients to increase self-awareness. I have witnessed clients become more empathic towards themselves as well seeing their suffering decrease. Therapy can markedly improve the quality of clients' relationships, work, and play. An important aspect of therapy is looking at your feelings in the present moment or "here and now" with me. The therapeutic relationship itself helps heal and we will analyze it at times. I aim to create an environment where the client feels safe and free to express themselves to increase self awareness.

Sometimes we don't even consider asking for help when we're feeling stuck, so I'm glad you've begun that process. I have experience helping people through relationship struggles, mood instability, substance abuse, patterns of procrastination and compulsive behaviors - essentially the things we do to manage this sometimes painful human existence. I believe that our pain often originates from our relationships, and so relationships become an important part of change. I like to be curious, to teach you to be curious, to learn how the past impacts the present, and to once again introduce choice rather than our default behaviors.

It takes time to choose the best therapist for you. When you're ready, let's talk and see if we might be a good fit. I appreciate the importance of this process, which is why I offer a free phone consultation to address any questions or concerns you may have prior to scheduling an appointment. Consider me a resource- even if we don't end up working together. Remember, life can be much more than survival. Change is closer than you may think. Keep reaching out.

What do you want? Do you know? If you know, are you able to attain it? Do you struggle with relationships or the ability to make your life as way you want it? Successful living means functioning well in love and work. Irritability, rigidity, anxiety, addiction, lethargy, depression, self-doubt, self-attack: these are all symptoms that sap us of our right to act with the freedom we wish and the ability to engage emotionally with others, our work and ourselves.

Balance CBT is the name of my private practice. I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist (PSY27841) and an expert in the assessment and treatment of anxiety disorders and related conditions. My primary focus is providing evidence-based or "known to work" treatments for anxiety-related problems. While I place very high value on research-driven treatments, I strongly believe that compassion, validation, and a powerful relationship are cornerstones to effective therapy. I am a member of the clinical faculty at UCLA and hold positions in the departments of psychiatry and psychology.
