About

If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationships, creativity, or some aspect of yourself that you wish to change, give me a call - I can probably help. I'm a good fit if you'd like a therapist with experience, both clinically and in the world, and an open-minded, warm, and realistic professional style. Mostly I work with adults, many of whom are creative professionals in the South Bay or West LA. They include executives, artists, fellow therapists, academics, lawyers, business associates, information technology specialists, and students.
My approach is psychodynamic and sensitive to your history, current circumstances, and complexity as a person. We'll discuss feelings, struggles, unwanted dynamics, goals, and dreams. Sometimes this work can be hard, but typically you'll enjoy the process, feel enriched by it, and grow as a person. I see this frequently.
My private practice is in Manhattan Beach. I have a background as a college professor, with roots in northern California, the east coast, and overseas. I've worked and lived in diverse cultures. I'm easy to talk to, with a sense of humor.
