I also have additional training and specialization in suicide bereavement.
I provide psychotherapy to clients who want lasting change in their primary relationships as well as overall personal growth. This includes parents trying to navigate the sometimes difficult task of parenting. Each individual, couple or family that I work with is unique and I value the process of getting to know my clients as the people they truly are. Some issues I treat are interpersonal conflict, trauma, depression, anxiety, attachment issues, addictions (including those in recovery), and difficulties with boundaries and trust.

The majority of my clients are people over 40, many of them gay men, who want to make sense of their life and its transitions: where they come from, where they are and where they are going. They might have specific issues: work, relationships, health challenges (sometimes HIV), aging parents, substance abuse and other addictive behaviors. Sometimes there is no specific issue, just a desire to sort out things. Their history might include trauma in childhood or later in life, and multiple losses, including loss to suicide . Depression and anxiety often show up as part of the work.

As humans, we are hard-wired with a need for deeply felt connections. Feeling valued and finding a sense of belonging are both essential human needs. Even with the best of intentions, authentic feelings of love and attachment can be elusive, sometimes leaving us feeling disconnected and quite possibly anxious or depressed. That deficit can be profound. I provide a warm, empathic and collaborative space to explore, feel, and put words to these powerful emotions that have often been neglected. Together, we begin healing when we attend to these feelings allowing us to move forward to a more connected and joyful life.

I work primarily with clients who struggle due to early experiences that left a mark. Trauma. Trauma often deprives us of resources and skills needed to survive and flourish. So as adults, we end up "stuck" due to persistent depression and anxiety, emotional dysregulation (extreme mood swings), constant triggering of the fear system, and relationship concerns. I work with many clients struggling with- or recovering from- various forms of self-destruction or self-harm. As a Partner Trauma Specialist, I also work with clients who are Partners of Sex Addicts from a relational trauma perspective.

My ideal client is a person who is longing to find purpose and meaning in their life and who look beyond mere symptom removal to a sense of who they are, what information the symptom may offer them, and how to live a more fulfilling life, be it as an individual, couple or member of a family. In short, a person who is interested in exploring the depths of their psyche and soul and is not just looking for advice or a quick fix; someone who understands that there is profound meaning in their suffering.

Please note I am only paneled with Cigna for insurance- My name may be coming up on other insurance panels but this is not accurate and should be changed soon! I do provide out of network superbills for reimbursement for all others though! My clients want to learn how to understand their brains, the brains of the people they love, and how what's going on inside them can affect the way they feel and behave. I use creative, engaging approaches to help clients learn and grow! While a lot of my work is with parents and kids, I also work with non-parent adults too so feel free to reach out for a consultation to see if I'm the right fit!

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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Sherman Oaks?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
