It can be scary and unerving to ask for professional help. My goal is to help you find your own tools for success. When we look at the challenges or issues that you are facing we can individualize what your needs are and awaken your own strengths. Therapy is not a place to come because you are broken, it is a place to feel safe, nurtured, and gain strength in knowing the uniqueness that is you. I hope to see you soon.

My orientation of choice is the psychodynamic orientation and I mainly focus from the psychoanalytic relational model.

It's not always easy for us to admit that we want help. As much as we like to think that we can do it all ourselves, everyone needs and deserves to have someone in their corner. No matter the disappointment or the distress, the grief or the frustration, the longing for stability and solace is an innate drive that has lead you to seek support.

I have a private practice in West Los Angeles where I work with people struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, or just the drudgery of adult life. I also enjoy working with the LGBTQ+ community, couples, and couples seeking mediation as they navigate issues (e.g., custody schedules) in a separation or divorce. I conduct immigration evaluations and have extensive experience with psychotic disorders.

Early on I counseled both elementary school children and homeless schizophrenic people in New York City. I have special training in grief therapy and sex therapy and enjoy working with matters of both loss and sex. I've spent a lot of time working with creative entrepreneurs, couples, and lots and lots of women. If I had to choose a favorite group...I just couldn't. It's all important and fulfilling to me.

You’re tired of constantly trying to get those pesky, negative thoughts out of your head. Whether you’re second guessing your skills at work, constantly replaying things you did and said, berating yourself for not accomplishing more or simply telling yourself you're failing, it just feels suffocating and you want relief. That’s where I come in. Sometimes in order to plow through all that negativity, you need someone who will both validate and challenge you. Someone who will help you learn new skills while also fostering the ones you already have. You got this far on your own...imagine how much further you can go with a little help.

"I just can't seem to make it right with my wife, husband or kids." Despite your best efforts, it seems like you're always getting rejected or upsetting your loved ones. It's a battle you know you can't win. You have the best of intentions, and know you're a good person, but something always seems to go awry. The attempt to share how you feel ends up in a blow out, spiraling out of control. Peace, connection, hugs, laughs- these are the things you seek and miss the most. You're desperate to find a way to share with others in an authentic way, but that also keeps the peace.

In my practice as a therapist I use the research on what works to help my clients get the outcomes they want: better relationships, managed anxiety, less depression and more control over life. I pursued a few paths in life before my career in mental health. I studied Modern Literature at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I worked for years as a math, science and SAT tutor. I trained for and competed in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments. My approach as a therapist is multidisciplinary, drawing on my previous experience coaching and educating adolescents and adults in athletic and academic environments.
