"It can be hard growing up in Los Angeles and dealing with the intense pressure of school, family and friends. It's also hard trying to be an adult, working to establish one's self and feel comfortable in saying, "This is who I am, this is who I want to be." We all come through this process with different stories, experiences and perspective. I love to work with families and individuals on this journey. I have had over five years of experience working with families during their deepest moments of pain and confusion, joy and growth."

"George Eliot said "the strongest principle of growth lies in the human choice." This could not be more true. We make choices every day: get up or snooze, jeans or dress pants, say "hello" or "good morning," one more episode or go to bed, and the list goes on. However, certain choices have a greater impact on our lives than others. At the top of the list is self-care. This can be extremely difficult at times. Sometimes it feels like life has thrown everything (and the kitchen sink at us), and it's too much to sort through on our own. My goal is to help you and your loved ones get back on your feet...and stay there."

"I enjoy working with teenagers and young adults who find themselves stalled in their academic or career development due to anxiety or depression, often exhibited through poor school performance, addiction, or other self-destructive behaviors. I believe there are no bad children, but only disconnected ones. My rewarding work is also with professionals who find themselves burnt-out and stuck in their lives and careers. We often suffer from debilitating anxiety over failure while fearing disconnection from the rest of our families. I support them to regain their confidence and peace in their busy, achievement-driven lives."

"The challenges of growing up in today's rapidly changing society are enormous. Children need to be equipped with skills for survival and growth that were never before imagined. I focus on teaching self-healing and self-control techniques that empower youth to develop the emotional skills necessary for a happy and successful life and realize their potential throughout their lifetime. Using the positive power of their imagination, children learn to reduce stress, deal effectively with anger and frustration, reduce stomachaches, headaches, and tics, cope with divorce and death, reduce parental and sibling conflicts, increase concentration, sleep peacefully, and more."
