I believe it takes courage to contact someone for help. Trusting and confiding in a stranger, as well as facing why we are unhappy, takes a leap of faith. I understand the difficulties in taking this leap and will create a safe and respectful space in which we can mutually collaborate to help you explore the obstacles which prevent you from reaching your potential and living a more satisfying life. I will listen carefully to your thoughts, memories and feelings to help identify how the past is alive in the present. Understanding this can make change possible.

I've been in practice over thirty years, dividing my time between my private office ( where i've mostly seen adults) and CHLA Mental Health Clinic where I specialized in adolescents and where I served as one of the training directors for many years. For the last five years, I've devoted my time exclusively to my private practice where I use a range of treatment models ( individual/conjoint/family) and enjoy working with a diverse clientele in terms of presenting problems, age, gender and sexual orientation.

Your path may have become difficult to navigate or there may be things that you are challenged with in your life. We can all benefit from help but asking for help sometimes can be difficult. Together we can work to uncover and discover a deeper, more aware and authentic self. There are solutions to the problems or challenges you are facing. As a therapist, I have several years experience working with individuals and family members affected by addictive patterns, substance use, depression and anxiety. I also have experience working with couples or individuals dealing with various marital/relationship challenges.

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.

I see psychotherapy as an emotionally reparative relationship. We are hurt by people, and we are healed by people as well. After over 30 years of this privilege of helping others explore the issues that have created barriers to their experience of a full and flourishing life, I have learned that human beings are amazingly resilient, and they can heal and grow and experience new beginnings. We are never limited by our past, but we sometimes need help figuring out how to accept and work through the grief and disappointments of our past before we can create new patterns of health and connection.

DIVORCE is devastating. As a skilled and trained Divorce Mediator, I specialize in assisting difficult and litigious couples through the entire process of their divorce. With 3 decades of experience, I mediate spousal and child support, investments, properties and pension funds, along with establishing a careful and appropriate parenting plan. My firm prepares all of the legal documentation. Mediation is one tenth the cost of Litigation. The stress, anger, physical exhaustion and emotional pain of the court system takes an enormous toll on ones life. Research shows that a litigious divorce in the courts creates significantly more trauma in children.
