"I enjoy collaborating with families to help them move through difficult challenges with intention and compassion. I frequently work with neurodevelopmental and life-adjustment challenges. This includes executive functioning issues, like ADHD, moodiness and depression, or anxiety due to high academic pressure, life stress, or divorce. I also work extensively with technology-related issues: healthy-mind balance, boundary setting, as well as mindfulness practices for relaxation and expanding frustration tolerance."

"I help perfectionists who are always second guessing their self-worth, overworking out of fear what they did is not enough, playing small from fear of taking risks and failing, and living below their potential. This creates a cloud of anxiety, stress, and overwhelm that burns you out and drains your motivation and drive to excel, leaving you feeling stuck. I help you learn how to overcome those mindset blocks and find a healthy balance between always raising the bar and finally enjoying the fruits of your labor. Working with me clients learn how to find lasting joy, not just fleeting happiness, and how to reach their full potential."

"I call my philosophy of therapy psy-chi. When the flow of energy, or chi, which is the life force of all living things, becomes constricted by fear and doubt, we lose our creativity and faith in ourselves. We become depressed or bored and feel disconnected from family, friends, and co-workers, or we become anxious and agitated and start to experience paranoia, or feel that we are not good enough. We lose our confidence; we lose the best part of ourselves. When this negative energy manifests itself the mind and body need to be realigned."

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Santa Monica 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?
