Announcement icon Social distancing is needed to keep us all as healthy as possible. My clients and I meet on video sessions via Zoom, occasionally by phone.
Choosing the right therapist is the first important step in a successful therapy outcome. You want a person with lots of expertise, but also the right personality, someone you trust and can talk to openly. Drawing on my extensive clinical experience, over the years I have been able to help individuals and couples with a wide-ranging set of issues. Whatever stresses are causing you to seek therapy at this time, I welcome your phone call to judge if I seem like the right choice for you.
I draw on cognitive- behavioral, psychodynamic, client centered and mindfulness approaches, depending upon the specific needs of each client or couple. Current research informs my work. Building a strong, trusting bond is always essential. See www.takechargeliving.com for my more on my qualifications, clinical work, and my book, Take-Charge Living.
I taught at UCLA Psychology for 19 years, UC Irvine for 4 years, and have been in private practice for over 30 years. This blend of teaching, research and clinical practice gives me a thorough grounding in the best ways to meet the specific needs of each individual client.
