If you're here it's because you are brave and ready to take the next step towards healing past wounds and letting go of relationships and patterns that no longer serve you. When we are in the midst of our darkness, whether it's because we are getting over a break-up, dealing with a sudden loss, recovering from a trauma, healing from past wounds, or simply not feeling worthy, it's often difficult to see all the possibilities that lie before us. If your ready for change and willing to do the work, together we can start manifesting the life you're meant to live.

Like water, every individual is unique, whole, and complete. Sometimes we have a hard time acknowledging this and embracing who we are. It is in this place we are asked to go inward and begin to understand the patterns that inhibit our growth. I utilize a blend of therapeutic approaches, meeting clients where they are, by integrating psychodynamic, mindfulness, and experiential therapy to recognize problems relating to grief, bereavement, anxiety, and multiculturalism.

We all go through difficult times and face adversity. Whether you're reliving the past, feeling stuck in the present, or anxious about the future, life can feel like an uphill battle. The same can be said for our relationships. No matter how hard we try to feel understood by our loved ones, we can get stuck in negative patterns and endless arguments that leave us feeling frustrated, resentful, lonely, and hopeless. I believe we are all born with the innate capacity to overcome life's most difficult experiences and when provided a safe space to share and explore, we can access our resilience and truest selves.

I seek to help families, young adults and adults navigate recovery as it relates to substance abuse and mental health issues. If I could have an "ideal client", it would be someone that has never been to a residential facility before and to catch them before it gets to that point. Most often, the people I work with have some substance use history along with mental health issues. Fulfillment, time management, family relationships, communication, harm reduction, abstinence, stability, etc. are often topics that people I work with seek help for.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Pacific Palisades view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.
