I work with grief and loss, depression, anxiety, and life transitions.
I've been a psychoanalyst and psychotherapist for 30 years. I enjoy working with individuals and couples who are interested in working on a deep level to connect your past history with your present life to help you understand why you are in the situation you find yourself in and to enable you to make sense of your feelings. With individuals, my goal is a loving self acceptance. With couples, I aim for each person to understand their partner's most vulnerable feelings, and then to learn how to protect each other and fiercely have each other's back.

I work with teens and adults who may be experiencing depression, anxiety, life transitions, relationship difficulties, and trauma.
You may be living day to day with a smile on, keeping up with various responsibilities, and on the outside appear like everything is going fine. Internally, you may be struggling to juggle everything, hiding inner pain, depressive moods, anxious thoughts, relationship conflicts, or underlying trauma that may be too difficult or shameful to face. It can be exhausting to have to keep it all together. You're tired of giving so much to everyone else, and then falling last on your list. You know that deep down, you need to do the inner work to start the healing. This can be the moment that you decide you are ready for a change.

It starts with understanding more about what you feel, and moving through - rather than holding on - to difficult feelings like anxiety, depression, or trauma.
I help lawyers and other professionals overcome difficult emotional patterns so they can live a life they love. You want to focus, to enjoy meaningful work, to handle conflict well, but instead you feel a tightness in your chest, short temper, and you can't get to sleep. Anxiety can be like that - it can be like a fire alarm that keeps going off, telling you something isn't okay.

I am all about healing from childhood suffering and being set free through the work we do in psychotherapy. If you suffer from depression and anxiety, behavior problems, or substance use, you may be held back by underlying issues, by unprocessed trauma. Current stressors could be triggering you repeatedly and also affecting your relationships or your career. Since you are viewing therapist profiles, it looks like it might be a good time to do something about it.

For many people, a symptom is initially what brings them into therapy: relationship stress, anxiety, depression, perhaps an addiction. This symptom lets one know that life in its current arrangement is not working. For any number of reasons - trauma, loss - one's true nature has been diminished, co-opted, denied. It can give one a sense of feeling unrelated to one's life.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Los Angeles. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
