My therapeutic approach is collaborative; focusing on strengths, with an emphasis on family structural therapy, Play therapy and attachment.
A native to Los Angeles I get it; the constant hustle, traffic, the grind of working to pay for life not psychotherapy. I know you’ve got valid reasons for why this isn’t the best time for therapy, but I’m calling your bluff. You’re not too busy, too old, too Black, or too broken. This is “right time” because there will never be a right time to get well. This is your moment. I’m going to say you’ve slowed down just enough to feel; running errands with tears streaming down your face. Hating your spouse, your kids, but hating yourself more because you’re still hurting, still invisible, still in your trauma.

Are you nursing a heartbreak post-split? Considering divorce? When we are hurting emotionally, it’s near impossible to see things clearly. Sometimes, it is the things right in front of us that can be most difficult to look at. And whether we want to admit it or not, friends and family have a vested interest. That’s where I come in..my 20+ years working as a practicing clinician have taught me that although no one else can be the expert on you, sometimes an “expert” third party can see your picture with greater clarity, if for no other reason then I’m in no way attached to the outcome (except for your happiness, of course).
