"Hello! If you're reading this, it's likely that you are experienceing some distress, from relationships,career problems,financial stress,grief, etc..and perhaps the depression, anxiety...other symptoms that often follow. Or, you may be seeking clarity of goals and life direction. I have enjoyed working with a heterogenous client group: anyone seeking change, in my view, is a great client. My background also helps me to be aware of unique stresses felt by creative artists and professionals in all fields.I also treat addiction, recovery and co-dependency as well as adolescents with Asperger's Syndrome.I've been lucky enough to see the effectiveness of psychotherapy through my own therapy experience and by having been fortunate to witness the growth and positive changes made by so many of my clients.It is with joy and excitement that I come to this collaborative and exciting work."

"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."

"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."

Are you having parenting style conflicts, sexual issues (lack of desire, unequal sexual desires, trust, lost passion)? Do you experience power or influence issues?

"I have 15 years experience helping individuals and couples find deeper meaning, satisfaction and inspiration in their unique experience of life. Individuals are often led to therapy by symptoms - anxiety, depression, panic attacks, failed relationships, compulsions and addictions, phobias, post-traumatic reactions and self-destructive behavior. Although symptoms can seem random and be destructive, they are important messengers alerting us that we are off course and guiding us toward introspection and growth. In psychotherapy we discover what lies beneath the surface of symptoms; we uncover that which has previously been unconscious."
