Infertility affects every relationship. Your sense of belonging shifts, hopes and dreams are distorted. Holidays and birthdays are rough. Every menstrual cycle is a loss and veins ache from too many blood draws. Medical procedures are traumatic, expensive and emotionally draining. It's difficult to concentrate, be around children and families and your sense of being healthy is altered. Everyone else is getting pregnant and having babies; and you fear the clock is running out. You are not alone! I am compassionately dedicated to counseling women struggling with this life-changing experience.

You've talked many times about what’s been troubling you. You’ve wondered where to go to get help?And while you may have resisted that idea at first, you know you need help now. Figuring your life or relationship out on your own and consulting others doesn’t necessarily leave you wanting to take their advice, only trying to figure out the root of your differences, adding more frustration. The stress of it all leaves you wanting to tap out of the conversation, approaching your limit. You just want to scream, but you’re trying to hide the fact that you’re in so much pain. Today you thought to yourself, “I’m ready” to start living.

Through telehealth-, home-, and school-based services, I meet my clients where they are. Usually families come to me because they feel stuck. Their child has difficult emotions, acts out, and cannot seem to listen. Teachers and parents struggle to feel effective and worry about the child’s future. Everything feels complicated and out of control.

Finding the right therapist from a website is difficult, which is why I offer phone or in-person consultations. It takes courage to address challenges such as relationships, personal problems, or general unhappiness. Your success in treatment will depend on your readiness to open up and my authentic presence that will help create a safe space for you. Together we will work on identifying, experiencing and expanding your capacity to tolerate all ranges of feelings. You will become more conscious of your limiting patterns while developing healthy ones as your sense of a genuine and stronger self emerges.

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.

Maybe you are coping with a stressful pregnancy? Or grappling with the loss of one? Are you postpartum, feeling unsure, worried, irritable, sad, unable to sleep even when the baby sleeps? Or perhaps, you are further along the parenting continuum, supporting your child through the various developmental stages - toddlerhood, adolescence and beyond. Is that meltdown normal? How do I help my daughter with difficult friendships? Is my teen's behavior typical? How do I tackle their constant internet use? Or maybe you simply want to empower yourself or your child with healthy emotional tools now to prevent potential issues later.

Most of the time, when we feel stuck or lost or frustrated or just "not quite right," there's a blind spot we're not seeing, or an opportunity to develop some skills that would help us thrive more in our own lives. We can often eventually figure out things on our own, but it's often faster, easier, and more effective with help from a skilled professional. My coaching is practical and deep.

My clients are sophisticated, insightful, and curious about themselves and others. Yet they may have found themselves feeling chronically depressed, anxious, or lost in life, and they might struggle with long-term patterns in their lives and relationships that they just can’t seem to change. Perhaps they have struggled with trauma or other experiences, thoughts, and feelings they fear nobody would understand. I enjoy working with people who desire not just new insights into their mind, but also a new way of experiencing themselves and others.
