If you are feeling alone and frightened due to chronic illness or pain, there is help.
In my practice, I see patients dealing with anxiety and depression associated with chronic and severe Medical problems. As a Health Psychologist, I have been in private practice since 1986, following my Doctoral work at USC. In graduate school, my research was involved with psychological reactions to serious medical conditions. Since that time, I have worked with many patients suffering from pain, cardiac conditions, cancer and autoimmune disorders, in addition to helping people cope with grief. Chronic illness is life altering, and can affect every aspect of a person's life. Learning to cope is critical in reclaiming your life.

Through hypnotherapy or Reiki you can find self improvement. Stress relief, weight loss, fears/phobias and letting go of grief are some of the issues I help clients with. I also work in conjunction with doctors to help with medical issues such as pain relief, dentist care, etc. Hypnosis helps you access the larger part of your mind (the subconscious) responsible for automatic behavior. Through suggestions you can achieve transformation by letting go of limiting beliefs. Some clients prefer Japanese Reiki energy sessions which help balance the body mentally, physically and emotionally.

I specialize in working with individual adults & adolescents who have endured trauma, as well as those who experience anxiety, depression, chronic pain, & women’s issues.
In the Japanese art of Kintsugi, pottery that has been broken is not simply discarded, but rather, mended with gold. This “golden repair” process reflects that amidst the cracks & brokenness, the process results in abundantly whole & resilient pieces of pottery. I believe that as humans, we are also incredibly resilient. However, we cannot endure alone; as we need a present & safe other to help process, hold, & contextualize our painful experiences. Through our work together, it’s an honor to walk alongside you as we explore these experiences- not simply “fixing” the cracks with gold, but integrating both the broken & the beautiful.

Stuck, overwhelmed? Change is possible once you become proactive instead of reactive. I treat adults struggling with relationships, depression, anxiety, stress management, aging and chronic illness. Some enter counseling for personal growth, others want to stop negative behaviors. Whatever the reason, I'd like to help you move forward. One key to successful therapy is an open and honest relationship with your therapist. I hope to develop that relationship with you in order to improve your motivation, increase your strengths, and create an action plan for positive change. What are you waiting for?
