I am a CSAT specializing in trauma and addiction as well as sexuality and intimacy issues. My unique style treats emotional discomfort and pain as avenues for self-discovery and personal growth. As a somatic therapist, I believe true healing comes from creating alignment between body, mind, and soul. As you more skilled at navigating your inner obstacles, you will rediscover your capacity to find balance and live a life that is healthy, joyful, and free. I emphasize insight, self-awareness, and empowerment to help you grow, learn about the meaning behind your symptoms, and lead a more gratifying life.

My clinical approach draws from my extensive training in mind/body interventions such as EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, psychodynamic psychotherapy and mindfulness meditation.
I have a gentle, innovative, creative approach to therapy, where my goal is to connect clients to their own sense of resilience and their unique internal healing resources. I believe that each individual has an innate blueprint for health, which can be accessed through trusting the process, slowing down, and deepening the connection to oneself and the present moment.

I use a creative approach that integrates EMDR, relational Gestalt therapy, with somatic , mindfulness and creative techniques to generate healing in both the mind and body.
Whatever you were feeling before this pandemic is now amplified. You are working hard to be fulfilled at work and in your relationships. You are wondering why it doesn't feel like enough and try harder. You worry that the difficult things that have happened to you might always hold you back. Uncomfortable emotions crop up--anxiety, sadness, hurt, shame and anger. There is self-criticism and blame. Your relationships suffer. Unhealthy choices are made. You wonder if talking about it is going to make a difference. You are ready to do the work, but you want to get past the surface because, in your heart, you know you deserve more.

I rely on over 20 years of clinical experience in private practice with hundreds of individuals, couples and groups along with EMDR, EFT and somatic experiencing to help clients gently heal painful memories, experiences and negative patterns.
I specialize in cutting edge techniques that work at the level of the unconscious mind to help gently and efficiently shift unwanted patterns of behavior. We often don't realize that the way we respond and perceive things in the present is due to past programming. This programming not only creates a blueprint for who we choose and how we behave in our intimate relationships but also determines our ability to cope with stress and deal with painful emotions throughout our lifetime. The techniques I use and teach my clients work especially well with anxiety, phobias, depression and trauma.

Create joy and inner calm in your life. My role is to guide you in coming back to your wholeness. I am passionate about helping you heal your wounded parts. This wounding may show up as depression, anxiety, or PTSD in adulthood. My approach is heart-based; it is a fusion of experiential (felt and experienced), somatic /body-oriented (releasing emotional pain which is stored in our bodies), gestalt, cognitive behavioral and internal family systems approaches. I don't focus on analyzing nor intellectualizing your past. We visit the past to let go of any pain or heal trauma.

As a certified yoga instructor for 15+, certified meditation teacher, + somatic -based practitioner, I approach mental health from a holistic viewpoint, recognizing the strong link between body, mind, and spirit.
You have the right and potential to be happy and living the life you want to be. Growth comes when we are able to let go of the need to be certain and embrace self-exploration. We may find ourselves suffering silently or blatantly out loud to the stressors that co-exist with us in our day-to-day lives. Holistic therapy allows for that unique experience to gain and practice the ability to look at self, develop skills to be vulnerable, love + let love in. I offer online 1-on-1, as well as, online courses, workshops, and retreats to fit your needs + preferences.

My training includes psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness, CBT, somatic approaches & EMDR.
Healing takes courage. It asks us to confront the most painful and tender parts of our hearts and to get uncomfortable in service to our growth. It doesn't always feel good, but it will always lead to our growth and liberation. Challenging emotions and difficult experiences are sacred messengers. If we are wiling to give them space and tend to them with compassionate curiosity, they can lead us to tremendous transformation, healing, power, and change. We are all innately whole but can become disconnected from our wholeness through trauma, pain, and challenges. Let's go on a journey to reconnect to this innate wholeness together.

I am trained in Internal Family Systems, Holographic Memory Resolution, Eriksonian Hypnotherapy, Somatic Experience, Reiki, Ayurveda and Yoga, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Buddhist Psychology, Meditation and traditional psychotherapeutic approaches.
Because I've been blessed with life-changing mentors in my life, I can pass the sum of their wisdom on to you, along with my own. Therapy is a healing process that happens through our shared connection and your expanding awareness. It requires a safe place, where truth is expressed and pain is transformed. Typically we meet suffering with distractions, intoxication or denial. When we find a way to experience emotional sobriety, our relationships with ourselves and others can heal. Loss, trauma, emotional intoxication and shame are common issues that breed secondary problems. We’ll approach them with skill, compassion and courage.

I have a strong orientation in narrative therapy and am trained in somatic experiencing.
Hi, My name is Steve. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and addiction coach living in Los Angeles. I have always been curious about life and people. As I reflect on my lived experiences I have come to understand that connecting with others in a meaningful way has been the thing that has brought me the most fulfillment and joy. A very old friend recently told me that, having known me over the years, they felt that the thing that was most important to me was freedom. This resonated as true to me and I believe it informs my work as a therapist and coach.

I work collaboratively and compassionately, using gentle, accelerated tools such as EMDR, Somatic Therapy and mindfulness, proven therapies which tap into these natural abilities, regulate the nervous system&treat trauma and accumulated life stress.
Do you notice yourself bumping up against the same old patterns? You may have disturbing memories that plague you, or feel stuck and afraid that you will never feel comfortable in your own skin. Maybe you struggle with feeling that you aren't good enough or deserving enough. Maybe you feel weighed down by emotional pain or shame that you can't seem to shake. So often our painful past experiences color our present perceptions, keeping us in a rut, circling through the same negative thoughts and feelings.
