Traumatic memory appears without warning. It stops you in your tracks, invades, and overwhelms. In a moment’s notice, your body and brain feel hijacked. No matter what you try and bury it under: work, food, relationships – it’s still there. You may dissociate or maybe you’re watching it happen across the room, in your child’s face. You never asked for this, but, then again, neither did they. Whether you are seeking support for yourself, your family, or the child in your life, I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and walk through this with you.

I believe that we all have the resources within us to heal, and yet sometimes we need a little help. The right connection between a therapist/client can help start that healing. Maybe your teenager is sullen and isolated. Maybe you are in love and scared to be truly seen by another. Maybe there’s an angry side of you that your family doesn’t understand and a vulnerable side that is too scary to feel. Together we can work on acceptance, healthy coping skills, and letting go of bad habits. Without judgment, we will build an understanding of who you are as a person so as to realize your strengths and fortify them.

Our identity is shaped by our relationships. Those attachments have created patterns in our lives we may not be aware of. Therapy is a great place to explore those patterns. Whether you'd like to work through some current stumbling blocks that seem to keep you from thriving, or explore deeper patterns that you've developed from earlier childhood experiences, I am here every step of the way. No one should walk alone. Call me today for a FREE phone consultation! (PLEASE LEAVE A MESSAGE and I will return your call; I do not answer unknown numbers). Thank you!

I am a licensed Marriage and Family therapist and I have been in this field for the past 20 years. I have worked with clients of all ages and from all walks of life. My special interest is in working with trauma. I am trained in Brainspotting and Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM). I also spent 12 years working in a hospital intensive outpatient program for the chronically mentally ill adults and seniors, who taught me a lot about having compassion for those who are suffering, and to find beauty, hope and strength in each person. I am now in full-time private practice and I love what I do.

My early experiences in mental health were working with “at-risk” youth and families involved in the foster care and juvenile justice systems. Beyond all the technical theories of being a therapist, these youth and families taught me the importance of connection, and one’s capacity to heal and thrive when they feel seen and heard.

Worried about your adolescent and think he or she could benefit from professional help? I am presently the Mental Health consultant for the La Canada Unified School District and have worked with teens since 1992. If you are concerned about what's really going on inside your teenager's head, perhaps I can help. You can contact me (and learn more about me) at: Leda@teentherapylosangeles.com

The onset of puberty can trigger underlying depression and anxiety that are difficult to treat and can stay with a person for life. I treat children on the autism spectrum (ASD), the LGBTQIA+ population (particularly transgender and gender fluid youth), and adults and children with PTSD.

In all phases of life, we face constant change and unexpected circumstances. Even for those who are strongly independent and resilient, life can be overwhelming at times. Therapy can be a space to explore the parts of life that feel uncertain and unmanageable, and identify where you want to go from here. Building the foundation for growth in therapy starts by creating a safe, genuine space where people can feel heard, understood, and valued for the person they are. I believe that people can foster long-term growth through understanding their journey, connecting with their true emotions, and empowering choice with authenticity.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Pasadena 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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
