Therapy is a very personal and intimate experience that we enter for different reasons. It provides a space to heal, explore, learn new skills, and receive support. I am flexible in my approach in that I value understanding individual needs in order to provide the most optimal treatment possible. My priority is to help you meet you personal and life goals, whether that's as an individual or couple. Currently, I offer in-office appointments to clients in Southern Los Angeles, and virtual therapy appointments to clients in New York and California.

Finding the right therapist is important. I approach therapy in a warm and relational way, and believe confidentiality and non-judgmental responses are crucial to creating a safe and trusting space. I know it can be hard to open up and start the process, so I make sure my client's feel comfortable to talk about the hard things and share about themselves authentically. If you are going through a transition, want to process past trauma, or anticipate something difficult coming, experiencing depression or anxiety, adolescent struggles, or want personal growth- reach out!

A person comes to therapy when their present ways of being in relationship, or in the world, no longer seem to hold the meaning they once did. My aim is to support you in creating a new foundation of hope, purpose, and meaning in your life. I help people seek wholeness through the integration of mind, body, and soul, thus expanding their current level of understanding, and in so doing, creating the capacity to live more meaningfully.

Taking steps to create a more fulfilling life may be one of the most profound actions one can undertake. I believe that walking this path requires developing a curious and accepting relationship with oneself as well as being witnessed and supported by another - be they a therapist, partner, friend or family member. Once on this path, one can heal limiting beliefs, hurtful behaviors, and unhealthy relationships, and move toward a life of fulfillment, purpose and ease.
