I specialize in treating survivors of narcissistic abuse, relationship issues, anxiety and depression. I am also very interested in what it means and how to become, a fully functioning human being, emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. In this world that has been accelerating at a pace beyond our expectations and sometimes our ability to cope,how do we find peace, happiness and fulfillment, or at least the absence of anxiety and depression? Locked within our own personal stories lie the answer to these questions. Whatever "pathology" you present with can be turned into a "path" toward healing.

You might have a tendency to experience life as emotionally painful. Your interactions with other people – family, friends and co-workers – often leave you feeling hurt. It can become quite disheartening when the possibility for joyful relationships feels out of reach. You feel frustrated and angered by other people, but resigned to the belief that there is nothing you can do about it, other people are disappointing by definition. Maybe you have an unexplained empty feeling inside. Despite being highly competent and having achieved a lot in life, you yearn for a sense of fulfillment with no idea how to make it happen.

It is true that each psychotherapy has its own life. The unique personal qualities that you and I bring to the table necessarily become interwoven to build a rich, trusting relationship. Together, we will go towards the underlying meaning of your symptoms. I have learned that many "symptoms" are actually inroads to the hidden away, injured, vulnerable parts of self that are waiting for an environment where there are resources for repair, healing, and growth. I am constantly surprised by the human potential to grow and I strive to provide an environment that gives life to the healing process.

You may be one of those people that knows that they have a story to tell but don’t exactly know where to begin. You may have the belief that you “should be happy and have your life figured out by now.” Maybe you have even mastered the art of showing the world your happy smile, but deep down you may feel a void and know that you want more joy and connection out of life. Instead, you find yourself in these unfulfilling relationships or situations, and somewhere along the way you became convinced that if people knew the real you they wouldn’t deem you as worthy or good enough and would judge you just as harshly as you judge yourself.

Perhaps, you wonder if you can ever be in a happy healthy relationship, because many people in your life seem unreliable, manipulative, and inconsistent. Maybe you are starting to feel as though you may be better off alone because you doubt whether you will be able to connect with people who value you for who you are.

Narcissistic Personality Therapists
Narcissists cut a wide, swashbuckling figure through the world...even in Los Angeles. At one end of the self-loving spectrum is the charismatic leader with an excess of charm, at the other end reside individuals with narcissistic personality disorder , whose grandiosity soars to such heights that they are manipulative and easily angered, especially when they don't receive the attention they consider their birthright. Narcissism involves cockiness, manipulativeness, selfishness, power motives, and vanity-a love of self...and mirrors. Narcissistic mothers or narcissistic daughters are a common discussion in therapy, although beware the temptation to use the label because we all have a sense of ego.
