Due to the virus, high anxiety has increased dramatically. My clients wish to manage their anxiety and use this time proactively. Many of my clients have wounds from the past and suffer from depression, fears, perfectionism, loneliness, burn-out, weight, sleep problems, addictions, obsessions, and/or pain around their sexual orientation. It's important to process great losses and identify underlying trauma. Rape victims will find a compassionate ear. It is wonderful when my clients are open to improve their (love) relationships and open their heart to the present moment. My clients are brave for seeking support and facing issues.

Hello and welcome! My first priority when working w/ an individual is creating a safe space by helping them feel heard and understood without judgment. Once this environment is established, I focus on supporting a client's feelings, helping them reach new insights and acquire skills so they may be more comfortable and effective in their lives. I strive to guide the client toward solutions and to help them meet the goals they have for the therapy.

As a licensed clinical social worker who has been in practice for 16 years, I have had the privilege of working with a wide range of clients struggling with a variety of issues. One of my main areas of expertise is working with pre-teens, teens and young adults, as well as their families. Developmentally, this can be a challenging time that presents itself with new struggles, whether they involve psychiatric, social, academic or family issues. I find it rewarding to work with teens as well as their families to guide them through this tricky period.

I focus on helping people separate their preferences from their problems, identify values that are most important to them, and determine the actions that will best express those values. I work collaboratively with people to detail their future hopes and honor the histories that inform their current experiences and relationships. "Therapeutic conversations help us navigate the limitations and dilemmas we all face. We each have ongoing stories about our lives, which are written by multiple authors: ourselves, our families, community, culture, and society. Some of these stories empower and embolden while others constrain and limit."

Life can present many challenges. Most of the time, we can successfully handle the trials and tribulations of daily living; but occasionally we get overwhelmed. To help cope and feel much better, we consult a professional who sorts and sheds light on the elements that caused these challenges. In the process, we talk about how we feel and why we feel the way we do. Most importantly, we learn to successfully handle the initiating emotional triggers in a way such that the resultant problems no longer arise. My Los Angeles therapy practice is dediated to being that caring professional.

I call my philosophy of therapy psy-chi. When the flow of energy, or chi, which is the life force of all living things, becomes constricted by fear and doubt, we lose our creativity and faith in ourselves. We become depressed or bored and feel disconnected from family, friends, and co-workers, or we become anxious and agitated and start to experience paranoia, or feel that we are not good enough. We lose our confidence; we lose the best part of ourselves. When this negative energy manifests itself the mind and body need to be realigned.

My therapy practice is a humanistic and wholistic approach. I offer a relational space for individuals and couples to risk being vulnerable with me, t themself, and with each other. Together we learn how past and present experiences influences thoughts, feelings and actions. We actively and sensitively identify and process patterns which are embedded in childhood or other relational experiences in order for something different to happen. Therapy is a great way to receive feedback, gain awareness and practice different ways of being. In session work is growth you take with you as you live everyday which feels good and is authentic.

NOTE: Not Accepting New Clients. Self Love Therapy is informed by the presence of compassionate consultation, experiential learning for self-healing and brain-based body interventions. In my experience, this integration not only accelerates recovery, also influences more growth areas in vital brain centers for a balanced self-led living.

I take time to know my clients in great detail, what brings them to therapy, the total context of their lives and what it's like to be in their shoes. People appreciate this real-life approach, good listening and having a confidential place to open up. Good psychotherapy is like this. The actual work is a process of co-investigating, being curious, not just problem-solving. This two-person process is based on looking at 1) beliefs 2) patterns of thinking and behaving 3) personal values 4) freedom 5) imagination. And courage! I am licensed in California and Nevada. I offer office and telehealth appointments in CA., Nevada online.

The motivation to seek counseling can come at many different times and stages in one's life - Whether it be to explore a deeper understanding of oneself, discovering ways to resolve relationship conflicts, or striving for stability or even change. In my clinical practice I work to understand what may be currently interfering with someone experiencing a more satisfying life - with a goal of helping clients become curious about their own experiences, reactions and insights.

Have you had problems that you thought were resolved and then they return again? I help individuals resolve problems once and for all. I work from a spiritual lens; I believe people know intuitively how to access their inner wisdom; however there are blocks that get in the way; I assist people in seeing these blocks and removing them. Often we get in our own way and we need assistance; this is where I can help.
