Sometimes it helps just to talk to someone. Someone who can listen with empathy and without judgment. Someone who can see patterns you may not have been aware of, who can help you talk back to that negative voice in your head, and who can help you renew your hopes for yourself and the future. Someone like me. To all of you I say, Come, let's talk about it, and together we'll find a way through this messy business of life. You are not alone.

You’ve finally made it in your career but the hurdles to get there have felt endless. You’ve tried to disconnect from the pain of being othered on a consistent basis, but the hurt and anger still remains. How long have you had to work twice as hard to be on equal footing with other colleagues? As a BIPOC therapist I know what it’s like to navigate this experience and how effective it feels when you can dive right in with a mental health professional who just gets it.

The most important part of our therapeutic relationship is a strong alignment between therapist and client. I am here to provide a supportive environment where you can develop confidence in your own abilities and move forward courageously. My ideal client is curious about themself, and about the systems and stories that have shaped their current experience. They might be struggling with shame or anxiety, and finding it difficult to separate their understanding of self from that experience.

I have been working in the field of autism spectrum disorders since the late 1980’s, I have worked with the full expression of the spectrum and hold as a core belief that my job is not to make you “not autistic”, but to help you gain the insight/skills/coping techniques you seek. I see my clients as part of a system, and thus will work with parents, schools, other therapists, psychiatrists and others to ensure continuity of care. In addition to psychotherapy, I conduct diagnostic evaluations and school observations. I have provided trainings all over the world to clinicians and educators alike.

Why therapy? Why now? Many of the talents and qualities that make someone successful in one area of life can pose difficulties in others. Unique life circumstances are common in my practice, and I am familiar with the challenges entailed by unconventional lifestyles. Especially creative, musical, expressive, and artistic ones. Perhaps you are already aware of your need for a safe, non-judgmental environment in which to explore, repair, and heal from life’s challenges. However, you may not be certain, and that's not a problem.

What type of Sherman Oaks mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Sherman Oaks?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
