About

I offer client-centered therapy in Eagle Rock and in Old Town Pasadena. Guiding principles are: that one always remains the expert on one's own life, that people have the internal resources to overcome their "stuck-ness," and that a collaborative therapeutic relationship is the key to encouraging positive change and more meaningful living. While I deal with a wide range of client issues, most of my clients are high-functioning or gifted intellectually and/or artistically. I use Rogerian, Experiential Focusing, Gestault, Attachment Theory, and Existential concepts and methods, working with clients to help them maximize their personal freedom and growth.
Gifted and high-functioning individuals have special needs for self-expression that are often difficult to meet. Over the past few years I've really come to enjoy the challenge of keeping up with verbally talented clients, so much so that I've made it a specialization in my work.
I have worked with the LGBTQ population at the Los Angeles LGBT Center since 2011 with specialized training in domestic violence, leading groups for both aggressors and targets of abuse. I work carefully and gently with trauma survivors to promote skillful coping and liberation from posttraumatic functioning.
