I graduated with my Masters in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University, with a specialization in Spiritual and Depth Psychology. While at Antioch, I studied Tibetan Buddhism in France, exploring its applications to the therapeutic process, and also in San Paulo, Brazil studying the connection between spirituality and medicine. I have since continued in both of these areas of study. I bring what I learned and incorporate elements as needed into the therapeutic process, with the goal of creating a unique approach based on what the client needs. I have previously worked in community mental health care providing individual and couples therapy. I have also worked in a treatment center setting focused on the areas of eating disorders and addiction.

It's rarely ever easy being human, and with the additional turbulence and stress of COVID, issues pertaining to social justice and our current political situation, it certainly hasn't gotten any easier. So whether you're feeling stressed, anxious, depressed, stuck, lost, or are struggling in your relationships, including the one with yourself, looking for help makes a lot of sense. Mindset shifts, tools for coping, and emotional support are the heart of what therapy can provide, not to mention simply having a safe space to talk to someone about what you're going through.

Do you "have it all" but feel unsatisfied? We live in an era where we grew up being told we could have everything we wanted, however, we are quickly realizing that having everything does not bring us lasting joy and instead burns us out. I am here to help individuals minimize their life to invest their time and energy into what truly matters. When working with me, you’ll find that my style is exploratory and extremely action-oriented while being genuine, honest, and humorous. My passion lies in working with individuals who are exploring who they are, where they come from, what they are passionate about, and where they want to go.

Hi! My name is Becky (she/her) and I am a therapist in private practice in Santa Monica, CA. A lot of the clients I work with are high achievers; they’re organized, on top of things, and on the outside, it may look like they have it all together, but underneath they are struggling with self-doubt, never feeling good enough, and that feeling like their emotions are unmanageable. Being kind to yourself is so important to working with these issues and beginning therapy is a great way to start practicing this self-compassion.

I dedicate my work to helping people identify and challenge their obstacles, whether from current turmoil (e.g. trauma/grief) relationship struggle, career/school or existential themes about one's life purpose. I am certified in Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) and Interpersonal Therapies (IPT) therapies, but draw liberally from both traditional psychodynamic theory (i.e. attachment and early family dynamics) and mindfulness, to guide you toward your desired change.

You’re a couple who love each other but something’s in the way of the closeness you once had. One of you may be feeling like you’re not heard or understood. You’re getting the feeling like you don’t matter to your partner. Or that you’re no longer a priority. You’re frustrated and sad about the relationship. You may be on the receiving end of blame or criticism way more than you think is fair. You feel controlled or nagged and you end up thinking, “what’s the point?” You want to please your partner, but nothing seems to be right anymore. Your communication has devolved and what was once easy, is now difficult.
