Every person has their own unique process of healing and growth. Psychotherapy is a valuable pathway towards finding balence and wholeness in your life. As your therapist, I approach my work with profound respect for your individual nature, values, and beliefs. Psychotherapy is essentially a collaborative process, in which we work together to explore the difficulties you're facing and to find solutions that will work for you. When the essence of your 'self' is truly understood, real possibilities for meaningful change can emerge. My goal is to support your journey as you move towards a more fulfilling and authentic life.

I offer client-centered therapy in Eagle Rock and in Old Town Pasadena. Guiding principles are: that one always remains the expert on one's own life, that people have the internal resources to overcome their "stuck-ness," and that a collaborative therapeutic relationship is the key to encouraging positive change and more meaningful living. While I deal with a wide range of client issues, most of my clients are high-functioning or gifted intellectually and/or artistically. I use Rogerian, Experiential Focusing, Gestault, Attachment Theory, and Existential concepts and methods, working with clients to help them maximize their personal freedom and growth.

I believe in therapeutic conversation; I am not the 'expert' on your life; you are that expert. My expertise lies in facilitating dialogue that looks at the obstacles currently blocking your preferred vision for your current and future self. My ultimate quarry is change: not just the hoped for differences you may want from your partner, your job, your family, but the changes from within that you must incorporate. The old adage really is true: you can only change yourself. Truly effective therapy happens when you are honestly ready to tackle the person in the mirror.

Do you feel alone and powerless? Are you experiencing anxiety and lack of trust in your relationships? Do you keep finding yourself in stressful situations you thought you had evolved from? Try as you might, you just can’t get a grasp on developing healthy boundaries for yourself? A lack of balance within yourself can manifest as a painful day-to-day. You’re searching for an integrated life, one where your emotions, your intuition, and your spirit can coexist. This comes with confronting wounds, developing loving boundaries, and trusting yourself to the fullest. Such a life is within your grasp.

You always try to do the right thing, but somehow, people don't appreciate it. When you try to help, they might even blame you! You put your needs aside to take care of others, and no one is there to take care of you, but you don't say anything. Maybe you cry when no one is there. And then you put your smile back on and turn back into the person they need you to be. One day, it all gets to be too much, and you don't know what to do. So you come see me.

As a therapist, I am committed to empowering clients to live their best life, have meaningful and loving relationships, and most importantly, in the words of Virginia Satir, "help them have stars in their eyes and truly feel their own value." At times, as we move through the different stages of our life, we find ourselves stuck due to our unproductive internal dialogue of shame and guilt, the need to be perfect, and the daily attempts to be who the rest of the world wants us to be. This leads us to feeling broken and unable to love ourselves or truly connect with others.

It's been said that the ultimate purpose of psychotherapy is to introduce a person to herself or himself. The struggles of life can cause us to lose touch with our true thoughts, our true feelings, our true selves and, as a result, we can become dissatisfied and unhappy living the life that we think we’re supposed to live rather than the one we truly desire. Effective psychotherapy can reconnect us with our authentic selves and, once that has been accomplished, everything is possible. It is this principle that guides all of the work I do with my clients.

Do you have an irrational, gut feeling you can't seem to shake? Maybe something telling you that you're not good enough, unsafe, powerless...? Sometimes, difficult experiences in our past can cloud how we live in and see the present. We find ourselves overreacting to things or people, feeling anxious or worthless. Our head can tell us we are being irrational, but that doesn't change the feeling. One of my goals is in helping you re-process the experiences in your life that push these feelings, so you not only know that you're okay - you feel it.

You may feel broken, different, and struggle to make all the "pieces" fit together. Perhaps that is further complicated because you are a survivor of trauma, or struggling with immense grief, and find it difficult to maintain healthy relationships or feel balanced. We cannot go back in time, but we have this sacred moment, and I want to help you grasp it and make it genuine. I want to help you find choice, autonomy and radical compassion in who you are. If you are partnered, I want to help you develop skills to nourish growth in that partnership.
