Whether you are an adult, a teenager , a concerned parent, or a hopeful couple, I am here to provide a safe environment in which to explore your feelings, work toward goals, and to be understood.
It might be that you feel you can do better in your relationships or career. Or that you are concerned about what the future looks like. Maybe you would like to end blue moods or constant worry, but don't know how to do this. Sometimes it is difficult to make changes on your own, and I am here to help. My practice started 20 years ago in New York City, where I helped clients achieve their potential and improve their relationships. One of my greatest strengths has been the ability to connect with clients and partner in their path to growth, insight, and happiness.

My specialties include child/ adolescent issues, parenting skills, sexual abuse, victims of crime, and mood/anxiety disorders.
I provide a supportive and collaborative approach to therapy. I believe it is important to teach clients strategies to use throughout their life, so that when they leave therapy, clients feel more confident to cope with future difficulties in a positive way. Learning skills along with self exploration can lead to progress in a shorter amount of time. Clients of all ages can benefit from this approach.

With 32 years of working with individuals and families, I specialize in helping people make changes/progress with depression, anxiety, marital discord, parenting, and other life challenges. As a therapist, I take a nonjudgemental approach in helping people take control of their lives. Some things to ask yourself: Are you dealing with anxiety, depression, or another life challenge? Does your child/ adolescent need assistance in expressing feelings? Does your child/ adolescent push the limits? Have you and your spouse grown apart? Becoming stronger as an individual/family and strengthening boundaries and roles are my number one goals.

Are you a child, adolescent or adult having difficulty functioning at work, school, or in relationships? Sometimes a history of trauma, self defeating and limiting belief systems interfere with our ability to love, work and play. I can help when old ways of adapting to stressors no longer work. Change is necessary at the mind, body and spiritual level for adaptation to occur. We will work together through your transformation. You can learn new ways to tolerate what has been overwhelming and you can develop new, healthier coping skills to help you manage what was formerly intolerable about daily living.

Psychotherapy is an individualized service to help someone in an impasse in life. Anyone may get stuck in efforts like: a young child in school, a student with academic challenges, an adolescent with identity questions, or an adult dealing with career choices or trying to maintain an intimate relationship. Each person is unique, so that we will first spend some time understanding you, developing trust, and establishing initial directions for our joint efforts. Therapy may vary in length, depending on what your concerns are: a few sessions, a few months, or more extended if to your benefit.

As a psychologist, I allow the space for individuals to gain insight and growth in their lives that help them reach their goals and aspirations. We all encounter challenges, whether it be someone suffering from anxiety and depression, a family who just found out their child has a medical issue, a child with fears, or a teen who has been bullied. During these unfortunate times what is needed is someone to connect with and help you out of this dark cave of distress. One of my greatest strengths has been the ability to connect with others and reveal the ways through this emotional distress.

In my work, whether the person is a child, teen , young adult, parent, or woman, I aim to provide a space of compassion and safety from which to understand the world around us (relationships, school, work, friendships) and the internal world within us (thoughts, emotions, pain, discomfort).

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Torrance and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
