I believe anxiety and stress to be the foundation of many issues we all face. My first goal is to help my patients reduce stress thereby decreasing chronic pain, depression and even the ravages of disease and illness. By developing rapport and trust and then utilizing healthy coping skills, the goal of anxiety reduction can be achieved. Its important to remember that we are engaged in a collaborative process where we learn to accept, resolve, move on and let go. I find that mindfulness, meditation and breathing is highly effective in decreasing anxiety and depression.
I believe that cognitive behavioral therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy implemented with a good dash of common sense can go a long way in effecting a sound treatment. I utilize not only CBT but biofeedback, hypnotherapy, heart rate variability as well as psychodynamic therapy and solution focused therapy. .
I am on staff at UCLA as chief pain psychologist in the Orofacial pain department and I have offices in Santa Monica and Thousand Oaks. I am also a concert pianist with a PHD from USC and bring this experience to my work. I lecture extensively on performance anxiety and anxiety reduction.
