I am a trauma specialist working with developmental, relational, and shock traumas. Relationship is what we long for from our deep selves. From birth, our instinct is to connect in order to feel safety, comfort, and wholeness. This yearning moves with us throughout our lives. Connection gives us a sense of belonging and of being "okay". Be it the relationship with self, body, others, and life experience, the connection and flow of it is vital for healthy functioning. When the connection is blocked, frozen, or severed, a whole-self cannot thrive. Reconnecting is essential for our authentic self-expressions.

Emotional and physical trauma, when unresolved, can leave us feeling alone, misunderstood, disconnected and sometimes shamed. It can keep us from forming the relationships we seek and alienate us from the intimacy we might desire. In a non-judgmental way, I engage my clients to help them find meaning and growth through a combination of intellect and emotional presence. My approach is psychodynamic and focuses on attachment, a sex-positive viewpoint and self-acceptance. When working with couples, I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).

Stepping into therapy may be due to depression, anxiety, phobias, relationship issues, sense of unhappiness, sense of emptiness or inability to find much meaning in life and living. It can be a choice we make to explore ourselves today, examine the past or expand on ideas and future dreams. If you are driven to grow, develop and have a natural curiosity in examining life, living and discovering more about your own path, then psychotherapy is one way to engage in series of exploratory dialogues to live with higher level of awareness & consciousness.

Therapy is for everyone. Your problem is not too big or too small. You do not need a "real" reason or a "good" reason to seek therapy. If you are searching for a therapist, you have decided something in your life is not working the way you want it to. Good for you. Give yourself permission to find out what that is and begin imagining how life could change.

If you just keep racing on that career treadmill, surely you will get where you are meant to be, right? But does it sometimes feel like the dream is beyond your grasp? Maybe anxiety, depression, or something else that you don’t know what to call is tugging at you. Or changes have come along that disrupt your sense of wellbeing. Perhaps it feels overwhelming or unachievable to balance the competing interests of work, relationships, family, and your future goals. Or the goals you once had don’t quite fit anymore. And where does that leave you?

I work primarily with clients who struggle due to early experiences that left a mark. Trauma. Trauma often deprives us of resources and skills needed to survive and flourish. So as adults, we end up "stuck" due to persistent depression and anxiety, emotional dysregulation (extreme mood swings), constant triggering of the fear system, and relationship concerns. I work with many clients struggling with- or recovering from- various forms of self-destruction or self-harm. As a Partner Trauma Specialist, I also work with clients who are Partners of Sex Addicts from a relational trauma perspective.

People seek therapy for so many reasons, but mostly we all want to feel loved, safe and understood. We want to feel a sense purpose & feel good enough as we are, and yet so many of us struggle to feel these ways. Sometimes our lives look very different than we imagined & we need help making sense out of things. We might be feeling disconnected or numb, uncertain or alone. We might be questioning the direction we are heading and need to find some clarity or hope. Self compassion & radical self-acceptance are cornerstones of my work. I'd like to explore these concepts with you and help you make meaning of your life and sense of self.

EMDR Therapists
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist's finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.

If you're looking for EMDR therapy in Los Angeles or for a Los Angeles EMDR therapist these professionals provide EMDR therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing and EMDR treatment. They include EMDR therapists, EMDR psychologists, EMDR psychotherapists, and EMDR counselors.
