"Therapy can change your life. If you just take a little time and can find the strength to give it a shot, you will likely feel much better. Research shows, however, that progress depends specifically upon which therapist you choose. Perhaps you've heard complaints about LA therapists before--about the quality of psychotherapy received for the money spent. Well, the truth is: there are many mediocre, poorly-trained therapists in LA that can't really help you, who don't care enough, who charge very high fees. I promise to give you more: authentic, effective psychotherapy for less cost."

"There is a wholeness and knowing that exists within you. Therapy is the incredibly special process of cracking that open. It is a space where you can show up and be authentically you, which is hard for most of us to do. Many of us have been deeply hurt, traumatized, or disappointed by our families and close relationships. In turn, we are wounded, and react from that space. But often through societal pressures, we walk around smiling and pretending to be happy, when internally we are battling depression, numbness, or anxiety."

Often times, feelings of anxiety, depression, and fear can leave us paralyzed and unable to achieve our goals and find real fulfilment.

This disconnect can be a result of low self-esteem or self-worth, as well as from a lack of confidence, motivation, and proactiveness. My clients goals might be to develop a stronger and healthier sense of self, so they can feel more empowered, resilient, and confident moving forward.
