Beginning therapy can be scary and intimidating, but also hopeful. Discussing your wishes and uncertainties in session can promote clarity and lead to positive changes in thinking and behavior that are necessary to improve circumstances and relationships. Action is required for positive life changes to occur. It isn't always easy figuring out what action to take or what changes to make. Therapy is a safe place to explore these thoughts and feelings. Small shifts can lead to large improvements in mood and relationships. Please reach out with questions or to schedule an initial consultation.

In these times of uncertainty, I am here to help. I have years of experience and am able to work with you virtually. Call me! Listening for what is not said is often as important as what is said. No one therapeutic approach suits every client's need, so I tailor my approach based on what's best for the individual. My success with sober clients and others suffering from addictive disorders comes from my willingness to help them navigate the realities of life. Sometimes psychotherapy alone cannot cure mood disorders, just as drugs for depression and anxiety are less effective without concurrent psychotherapy.

Initially working in the areas of eating disorders and other addictions has led me to specializing in problems related to relationships, both with others and with the self. As a result, I now specialize in working with couples and dysfunctional families. I have a rare ability to combine both the cognitive and spiritual. I also have experience working with dreams and how they inform us from deeper levels of the psyche. I practice depth psychology.

Grief comes out of nowhere and slams you - hard. Whether you've recently lost a family member, career, your health, or someone or something else that you hold dear, the loss can knock you off-center. You used to manage your life pretty well, but now you can barely keep things together. You're distracted and irritable. You want to get back to normal, but you don't know how to get through the intense feelings that threaten to overwhelm you. And if your child or teen has also been affected by this loss, it's even more difficult to envision what "normal" might look like for your family, or how to get there.

These include early attachment issues, relational dilemmas, and environmental impacts due to over-sensitization. Through having worked across many domains, I have the capacity to help people understand their own internal dynamics much more clearly--in themselves and in their interrelations with others--so that the conscious changes they are wanting to make in their lives have the potential and possibility to actually manifest.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in 90405 using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.
