I am a psychotherapist currently in private practice in Santa Monica. I have been working with patients since 2010 and am currently a Ph.D. candidate at Pacifica Graduate Institute where I also earned an M.A. in Counseling Psychology. My therapeutic style integrates my academic education with training and experience in various modalities. I draw from a diverse clinical background to meet the particular needs and goals of each individual. While I am most influenced by Jungian and Buddhist psychology, intersubjective and attachment theory as well as somatic approaches highly inform my work.

In therapy, we look to grow, and we seek help with real-life problems. I enjoy working with both this “growth” therapy as well as with those seeking relief. I enjoy working with clients who struggle with unhappiness, anxiety, addiction, or loneliness. I work with new parents who struggle with the challenge of having a child and/or being working parents. I have strong commitment to serving women who are finding their voice, to the LBGT community and minorities. I am also well versed with clients who are struggling with grief and loss. I enjoy creating a safe place to talk for women, those who feel excluded, and to heal from trauma.

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.

Clients often seek therapy in order to effect some form of change in their lives. My work is less about change and more about understanding and acceptance. Our work is a collaborative format in which I assist you in understanding your unconscious motivations and accepting yourself just as your are. In other words, meeting you where you are and encouraging you to do the same. Change is secondary to self-acceptance. It is only when we love and accept ourselves that we can extend this grace to others. Currently we are living in a time of unprecedented uncertainness. Acceptance leads to less stress and a healthier immune system.

My psychotherapy approach is right for you if you want to see and understand the tendencies and beliefs (often unconscious) that hold you back or lead you into situations that don't serve you. Every problem and painful experience is an opportunity to connect with your own heart's wisdom, even as we deal directly with the issue or difficulty you are facing. Healing your relationship with yourself positively affects all your relationships. For instance, feelings of not being good enough turn into compassionate acceptance - of others as well. "Baggage" from the past that weighs you down is released.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Santa Monica, this list of Teletherapyists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Santa Monica listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

Please discuss with the professional the app you'd like to use e.g. Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. Professionals sometimes prefer HIPAA tailored apps such as Zoom, VSee or Doxy.me.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Santa Monica are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Santa Monica

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Santa Monica you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Santa Monica and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Santa Monica or family therapy in Santa Monica.
