Let's Connect (323) 948-6131
My practice has primarily derived from an education in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, emphasizing close attention to your developmental history, relational patterns, inhibiting defenses and the neglected power of your inner life. I understand the vulnerability it takes to open yourself up to a therapist, and I promise to join you with patience, strength, and hope on your path to self-understanding. With collaborative and creative intention, I can help you widen your point of view, increase your tolerance for complex emotions, integrate fragmented parts of yourself, and discover the uncharted material within you.
I work with individuals, couples, and adolescents to explore experiences of attachment trauma, depression, anxiety, PTSD, intrusive thoughts, personal and familial substance use/addiction, compulsions, eating disorders, questions of gender and sexuality, immigration, and adoption.
I have received comprehensive training in the areas of adult attachment presentation and asset-based counselling, followed by extensive clinical guidance in classical and contemporary psychoanalytic theory and therapy technique. I continue to pursue continuing education and training opportunities with the circumstances and needs of my clients in mind.
