Announcement icon I am available primarily by video with limited openings for at-home sessions in West LA or at my office in Sherman Oaks (vaccination req'd).
Inattention. Depression. Anxiety. Trauma. These are all natural responses to the challenges of life. These challenges are daunting on their own, and can feel insurmountable because of how the world treats gender, race, sexuality and learning differences.
Call me Alex. I'm a therapist at the intersection of multiple identities (queer, Japanese American, Jewish). I use mindfulness-based therapies to help clients live in the present moment and find liberation from the impact of family history and systemic discrimination. I also help parents connect with their children in ways that feel healthy and aligned.
This shit is hard. But maybe it doesn't have to be.
