About

It takes time to choose the best therapist for you. When you're ready, let's talk and see if we might be a good fit. I appreciate the importance of this process, which is why I offer a free phone consultation to address any questions or concerns you may have prior to scheduling an appointment. Consider me a resource- even if we don't end up working together. Remember, life can be much more than survival. Change is closer than you may think. Keep reaching out.
I believe in the creation of a safe, playful, and dynamic space that promotes insight and curiosity. Through humor and integrative evidence-based methods, I effectively work with a wide range of issues such as depression, anxiety, addiction, and relational difficulties. From 2017- 201 8, I served on the Board of Directors for the LA County Psych Association.
I can help you reduce and permanently transcend your symptoms by aiding you in understanding their origins. Through enhancing self-awareness, old cycles are broken, power is reclaimed, and healing occurs. My work involves the collaborative exploration of the relationships that we have with others, and especially, with our authentic selves.
