I specialize in mourning and grief , depression, impulsivity often tied to some eating disorders, and anxiety.
Deciding to come into treatment is never an easy decision even when it feels necessary. I work from a psychoanalytic-psychotherapy approach meaning I'm most interested in what your experience is. What that means is that through careful listening and dialogue, I'll work with you to better identify and understand what may be behind painful symptoms like lack of impulse control, binge eating, depression that's so heavy you can't get out of bed, or the terrible grief that comes from losing a loved one.

I help clients with various types of challenges including loss , grief , relationship, isolation, self-esteem, anger and life transitions.
Do you have a lot of acquaintances, but not friends? Do you tell them you like to be alone, when you don't? Are you in an abusive relationship because you don't think you deserve better? Together, we can explore and identify what is keeping you from living your best life. I will journey with you toward transformation as you heal from the past, overcome fears for the future, and gain a better sense of inner peace, balance and happiness.

Among the many issues I’ve worked with are family and life transitions; family-of-origin work; loss and grief ; anxiety and depression; women’s issues, including fertility, pregnancy and adoption issues; spirituality and faith issues; childhood abuse or neglect and PTSD; premarital and marital therapy.
My goal is to provide a safe and supportive relationship which invites you to honestly explore any issues you are facing. We will discuss current problems, look at any connections to your personal and family history, as well as talk about what is working for you and ways to build on that. My ultimate goal is for positive change in the present, whatever that looks like for you. I encourage the use of outside resources such as workshops, groups, classes, 12-step programs, yoga and mindfulness practices as well as religious involvement as part of the healing process.

I previously worked as a Child Life (Development) Specialist at Children's Hospital Los Angeles and have substantial experience supporting children and families dealing with the stress of medical issues, chronic illness, and grief and loss .
Taking the time to reflect and process our life experiences is important for personal growth, healthy relationships, and general well-being. Therapy provides a safe space to explore behavioral patterns, validate experiences, and move towards positive change. I have an empathetic and collaborative approach when interacting with children, adolescents and families. I am skilled in supporting parents with children at all stages of development. I hold Masters Degrees in both Human Development and Marriage and Family Therapy.

I work with adults in individual psychotherapy struggling with a variety of life stressors and difficulties such as depression, anxiety, grief and loss , and traumatic events.
As a mental health therapist my goal is to provide empathy and a safe space throughout your journey of self-empowerment and discovery. I am a huge believer in the idea that we all possess the knowledge to self-heal or solve our problems, though sometimes we need a helping professional to find the key to unlocking that knowledge.

If you’re experiencing obstacles to your dream of having children, you may be dealing with deep disappointment, depression, anger, loss , isolation, and spiritual questioning.
Infertility is a journey that no one signed up for. For those who want children, it’s simply devastating to be unable to expand your family as planned, while others around you move forward with their lives. Yet 1 in 8 couples experience infertility and many others experience barriers—systemic, financial, and biological—to pursuing their family-building dreams. In my practice, I specialize in issues related to fertility (delayed parenthood, egg-freezing, pregnancy loss , donor-conception, surrogacy, IVF, and other forms of family-building). I understand the intense stress these issues can place on your relationships and mental health.

I'm a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with two decades of experience helping people deal successfully with anxiety, depression, trauma, and stress; matters of self direction, identity, and confidence; grief and loss ; creative blocks and career concerns; bi-polar and panic disorders; substance abuse and addiction; and family and relationship issues.
It's been said that the ultimate purpose of psychotherapy is to introduce a person to herself or himself. The struggles of life can cause us to lose touch with our true thoughts, our true feelings, our true selves and, as a result, we can become dissatisfied and unhappy living the life that we think we’re supposed to live rather than the one we truly desire. Effective psychotherapy can reconnect us with our authentic selves and, once that has been accomplished, everything is possible. It is this principle that guides all of the work I do with my clients.

Life can be stressful and challenging. Sometimes we seek to meet these challenges by doing the same things we always have and expecting different results. Worry, stress, sadness, loss of a loved one, relationship issues or dealing with health problems can leave us feeling overwhelmed. Many people need help putting things back into perspective and getting back on track. If you want to create positive change in your life, if you are ready to take that first step - Congratulations! I am passionate about supporting you in reaching your goals with respect, empathy and humor.

I specialize in working with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, life-transitions, relationship challenges, illness/ loss , and trauma; and with couples experiencing communication, intimacy/trust, sexual and infidelity issues.
I believe deeply in the transformative potential and enduring nature of psychotherapy. When we're feeling stuck, confused or alone, therapy can help us to untangle our emotions, clarify our struggles, and better understand ourselves and others - ultimately forming inroads to real and lasting change. I am a compassionate and collaborative therapist: I establish a safe, non-judgmental space where our mutual exploration of your relationships, family history, career, sexuality, or whatever is troubling you currently - as well as aspects of our therapeutic relationship - will open pathways to new awareness and opportunities for welcome change, growth and healing.

Grief Therapists
Grief and Bereavement is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.
