I'm a licensed MFT with offices in Santa Monica and the Ojai/Ventura area. For the past fifteen + years I have been working as a therapist with adolescents, adults and families. I am also a clinical supervisor to interns in my private practice, and I provide psychotherapy for therapists in training. My work as a therapist focuses on relationships of all kinds. For my client, I hope to be an agent of positive change by working with him/her towards an understanding of the dynamics that keep him/her from moving forward and then by mentoring him/her to co-create a bigger life for him/herself.

Areas of clinical specialty and interest include anxiety and stress management, eating disorder and addiction treatment, the treatment of compulsive behaviors, loss and trauma, personality disorders, the treatment of anxiety and mood disorders, and difficulties adjusting to life transitions.

As a long-term practitioner of yoga, meditation, and other relaxation techniques, I also may incorporate such tools, compassion and intuition to help clients develop a therapeutic relationship based on trust and insight.
