I believe in giving it to you straight wrapped with warmth and love. I believe we all have the power to make change but sometimes need a little help along the way. I provide individual, couples and family therapy to children, adolescents and adults. I have an array of experience from working to outpatient mental health clinics where I supervised psychology and social work interns to consulting at local schools to coordinating clinical programs. In addition I also enjoy weaving eastern and western philosophies into my practice.

I am a licensed psychotherapist with 20 years experience working with children, families and adults. My areas of expertise include infants and mothers, parenting, children, adolescents, families, women's issues, divorce issues, co-parenting, trauma and anxiety. I am located in Santa Monica: 2510 Main Street, Suite 201 Santa Monica, Ca 90405 310.399.6670

I am excited to now be offering Girls Yoga TalkĀ© which combines yoga and traditional group therapy for girls ages 14 to 17 years old. Please see my section under groups.

More about this group

Girls Yoga Talk

1 hour of yoga followed by 1 hour of group therapy where girls will journal and talk. Adolescence can be a time of turbulence, uncertainty and social pressure. Yoga can help girls develop a foundation that builds physical and inner strength, enables confidence and self-esteem and provides tools to effectively manage critical stages in their lives. Yoga can also help girls to begin to develop a mind-body connection, increase flexibility, promote better posture and to relieve every day stress through breathing.
