I believe that you have a right to therapy that meets your needs, and works towards your goals. My job is to collaborate with you in whatever way is helpful. I am non-judgmental, and supportive, and will work with you to enlist your strengths and energies to bring about the changes you want in your life. I offer EMDR therapy for the traumas that underlie so many issues. If you are looking for an alternative to 12 step programs and abstinence for a substance problem, I can offer you the harm reduction approach which respects your intelligence and your ability to make choices.

*******PLEASE NOTE MY PRACTICE IS CURRENTLY FULL. I AM NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME. I view psychotherapy as a collaborative, co-creative process between client and therapist. It is important for the client to feel a connection with his/her therapist and to sense that the therapist has the client's best interests and well-being at heart. I believe that through the process of expanding upon one's inherent strengths and developing insight and awareness, one is able to move into a more empowered state leading to a more enjoyable and gratifying life, a life in which one is able to fully participate.

If you are a person of color (POC), in the LGBTQ community, and/or are non-monogamous/poly, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve had the privilege of working with diverse populations for over 15 years. In working with a culturally competent therapist like me, you can focus on what brought you to therapy in the first place and not on explaining or “teaching” the nuances of your culture and sexuality. My expertise is in helping those who are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship difficulties. I’m trained in EMDR, an evidence-based therapy that treats trauma and other difficulties.

Many of us use ways we coped in the past and we find ourselves blocked in the present. Maybe old strategies which once worked for you no longer function well in the present. And you'd like to explore possible changes. Perhaps I can help. In my work, I seek, with you, to identify and connect past feelings and previous ways to adapt with your present. As you begin to know more about yourself and your feelings, increased understanding can lead to change.

Life can present many challenges. Most of the time, we can successfully handle the trials and tribulations of daily living; but occasionally we get overwhelmed. To help cope and feel much better, we consult a professional who sorts and sheds light on the elements that caused these challenges. In the process, we talk about how we feel and why we feel the way we do. Most importantly, we learn to successfully handle the initiating emotional triggers in a way such that the resultant problems no longer arise. My Los Angeles therapy practice is dediated to being that caring professional.

“Committed to you winning I designed a modern holistic psychotherapy approach to get you to your goals faster. I felt unsatisfied with the results from psychotherapy alone so I embarked on a global search for more answers. Learning from brilliant minds and teachers I combined discoveries I made from the world of life coaching, neuroscience and wellness practices with powerful psychotherapeutic techniques. The results have been dramatically more efficient and effective mental health and relationship improvement for my clients.

It's tough to use words to describe the work of psychotherapy. As such, I like to analogize it to art and poetry, where its interpretations are varied, nuanced and deeply personal. It may be hard to accept that like life, psychotherapy and art may not have linear progressions toward results. Sometimes life may appear confusing, overwhelming, or just hard for no apparent reason. With the belief that all struggle is for our eventual benefit, the real work is in uncovering your diamond in the rough. This brings to mind a poem I love by Wendell Berry:

During my first psychology class in high school I learned that there are actually words to describe my experience-the sometimes conflicting experiences of living between two different worlds. I became passionate about finding a way to address the experience of people whose hurts and wounds are often invisible-fractured hearts and minds vs physical challenges. I was saddened by my observation that too many people feel stigmatized and alone with their inner turmoil and wanted to find a way to make the heart, mind and body whole. My dream is that therapy becomes accessible to everyone and viewed merely as another source of support.

Personal and professional experience has led me to believe that there is nothing more healing for one's soul than intimate connection with others. If I can provide you with a safe space to openly and honestly share your story, then our work has more than just begun. I look to offer a sense of transparency, an authenticity in nature that invites you to feel comfort in my presence. There is great challenge and risk in this process, as well as great opportunity for growth and change-it would be a privilege to be a part of your journey.
