Before I came to America I worked with soccer teams helping their players deal with anxiety, something I still do. Twice per year I return to England so therefore clients who are relatively independent and not in crisis are the best suited to working with me. Consequently, I do have a network of excellent support therapists who work with some of my clients while I am away. Many of my current clients are not sports people, they often have to cope with big work and home pressures. I try to help them locate their inner resources while maintaining a supportive stance throughout our meeting.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist (PSY27345) providing Individual, Group and Couples psychotherapy in a private practice setting in West Los Angeles. My approach to therapy is Relational. I find that the exploration of our interpersonal relationships, including the relationship between the therapist and client, can be helpful in overcoming internal conflicts we face in our lives. Furthermore I believe psychotherapy is a collaborative process which brings something unique to each patient-therapist relationship. Working together, we can uncover your personal needs and internal struggles, in real time, to better understand how to acknowledge and express these needs in your everyday life.

I became a psychotherapist because I wanted to be "that someone" I always wished I had in my life. Someone who believes in you when you lose hope in yourself, and get stuck in what seems like perpetual darkness. I feel that my job is to help shed the first stream of light into the darkness, so together, we can see the bigger picture. Collaboratively, we'll explore your hopes, dreams, and goals. I will help you navigate, and walk by your side, until you reach them, or you are confident enough to do it alone.

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?
Therapists in Santa Monica are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Santa Monica. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Santa Monica
