"Therapy can change your life. If you just take a little time and can find the strength to give it a shot, you will likely feel much better. Research shows, however, that progress depends specifically upon which therapist you choose. Perhaps you've heard complaints about LA therapists before--about the quality of psychotherapy received for the money spent. Well, the truth is: there are many mediocre, poorly-trained therapists in LA that can't really help you, who don't care enough, who charge very high fees. I promise to give you more: authentic, effective psychotherapy for less cost."

"EVENING & W/Es. You've already tried it on your own. Maybe you've found partial solutions,but it does get discouraging finding yourself, or your relationship, repeating the same patterns over and over. Seeing a very experienced, smart, interactive therapist who is truly client-centered means finding much quicker relief for problems related to relationships , depression, anxiety and panic, parenting, childhood, and life directions. Working with me means forming a solution-oriented partnership for real change. I have successfully done this work for many years, and help people on both long or short term issues. Evenings/Weekends available, too!"

"We have all had times where we are struggling, feel low or "off", may not even have a real "reason" why these feelings are coming up for us. Or those times where an event, situation, loss, change in our daily functioning has lead us to not feel that we have the right skills to live our best lives and we just don't know what to do. Therapy is an answer for someone who wants to explore these feelings, to work through the difficult times and to learn about oneself in an unbiased, non-judgmental environment."

"Many people shy away from asking for help when in emotional and psychological pain. It is not easy to ask for help. Perhaps there are feelings of shame underlying the recognition of one's vulnerability. But in essence these are the times that important and life-altering changes can occur. I am invested in establishing a safe, supportive, and truthful interaction with you towards improving your life, your choices, and your relationships, & have over 25 years of experience as proof. The concerns that I have worked with extensively include depression, anxiety, grief, life transitions, substance-abuse, adjustment, crisis intervention, & individuation."
