Most people need help at various times in their lives navigating difficult experiences. My approach is collaborative, action-oriented and positive with individuals and couples . When relevant, I incorporate somatic (body) approaches, including EMDR and brainspotting modalities to working with anxiety and trauma. My practice also includes the option of "walking and talking" outdoors. I am influenced by IFS / IFIO ("parts work"), self compassion, feminist, and polyvagal approaches. I look forward to hearing from you so we can connect more deeply with the past and address your barriers to well being and a more coherent integrated self.

I work with adults and couples from a relational and insight orientation. Because every person is unique, I tailor an approach to each client’s immediate and long-term life goals. I work with clients to help them develop autonomy and self-worth, to improve relationships, and to love, work, and play more freely. I practiced as a litigator for 13 years at a large global law firm and bring an informed perspective to treatment.

I work with individual clients, couples and families.
I am trained in a range of therapies but do not use a one-size-fits-all approach to treatment. I work with clients on challenges related to depression, anxiety, loss, adjustment to life changes, trauma, and family dynamics. Your voice and story are important. My goal is for you to not only feel like you have been listened to, but really heard.

I believe creating safety within a non-judgmental environment is crucial to begin the journey of self-exploration, recovery and healing. Each person has their own unique set of beliefs, experiences and needs. Working together, we identify the goals and direction of therapy. In my work with individuals and couples I use a feminist, empowerment-focused and collaborative approach. As a guide in my clients' journeys, I help clients face their challenges and find ways to move through them. I know the path can be difficult at times, and I look forward to working with those ready to explore those next steps.

My specialties include addiction and impulse-control issues, depression, anxiety, adolescents and couples .
The therapist's task is to provide as far as is possible the ideal conditions for self-reflection, a place where one can explore the past, present and future apart from the pressures of life, in privacy, without judgement. The therapy room should serve as a "secure base" from which one can roam freely and return for honest curious reflection, guidance and support.

I have extensive experience with teens, adults, and couples as a result of working in private practice and other mental health agencies.
I believe therapy to be a safe place where someone who is in need of help can be heard free of judgment. One of the main keys of therapy is working together on eliminating behaviors and belief patterns that do not help you grow as a person. By using various approaches that are tailored to your needs, therapy will assist in the development of tools and skills, which will help support personal growth.

*Currently, I am not accepting new patients. Emotional and physical trauma, when unresolved, can leave us feeling alone, misunderstood, disconnected and sometimes shamed. It can keep us from forming the relationships we seek and alienate us from the intimacy we might desire. In a non-judgmental way, I engage my clients to help them find meaning and growth through a combination of intellect and emotional presence. My approach is psychodynamic and focuses on attachment, a sex-positive viewpoint and self-acceptance. When working with couples as well as individuals, I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).

With advanced training in couples therapy, maternal mental health, parenting, and attachment, together we will explore your relationships, the stressors and challenges you encounter, and collaborate on new ways of relating and being known.
The human spirit has an amazing capacity for resilience, but sometimes it's too hard to access it on your own. When we encounter challenges and problems in relationships, in our workplaces, in our families, we can feel overwhelmed, hopeless, & stuck. It's not uncommon to feel depressed or anxious, or seek out unhealthy ways to function that mask the hurt. It's in situations like these that it takes great strength to reach out and ask for help--to seek someone to come alongside and enter into your experience; help shoulder the burden, and rediscover and connect with that resiliency.

Given my 20 years of counseling experience, I witness the internal and relational changes that individuals and couples have made as they gained the clarity and tools that they needed from counseling.
If you want to improve your current life situations like relationships that are dissatisfying or personal goals that are not getting fulfilled, counseling can help. I am an experienced counselor who can help you better assess your situations and come up with concrete plans of actions to make changes towards your goals. Sometimes I coach you in developing new skills like more effective communication of your wants and needs, and sometimes I support you in working out unresolved issues and emotions from the past that are getting in the way of living and relating more fully in the present.

To put it simply, I love people. And what inspires me as a therapist is the opportunity to serve others through authentic connection and collaborative insight into clients' thoughts, feelings and actions. While drawn to cognitive behavioral and Mindfulness interventions, for me, providing a safe, warm and open relational component is key. Whether working with couples , individual adults or adolescents, and issues ranging from anxiety, depression, trauma, or sexuality, intimacy and interpersonal functioning, it is a privilege to hold your confidence and assist you in your journey towards integration and wellness.

What type of South Pasadena 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 South Pasadena?
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.
