Individuals often struggle with managing the stress in their lives that can lead to feelings of depression, anxiety, and unhealthy behaviors, for example. Distress can arise from work, life transitions, relationships, and difficult emotions. We can find ourselves reacting in the same ways, experiencing the same agonizing feelings, and being in the same difficult circumstances. The goal is to understand your own thoughts, behaviors, and emotions, and use that information to minimize suffering, have healthier relationships with others and with yourself, achieve your life goals, and feel a sense of agency to live the life you deserve.

If you are a person of color (POC), in the LGBTQ community, and/or are non-monogamous/poly, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve had the privilege of working with diverse populations for over 15 years. In working with a culturally competent therapist like me, you can focus on what brought you to therapy in the first place and not on explaining or “teaching” the nuances of your culture and sexuality. My expertise is in helping those who are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship difficulties. I’m trained in EMDR, an evidence-based therapy that treats trauma and other difficulties.

Many of us use ways we coped in the past and we find ourselves blocked in the present. Maybe old strategies which once worked for you no longer function well in the present. And you'd like to explore possible changes. Perhaps I can help. In my work, I seek, with you, to identify and connect past feelings and previous ways to adapt with your present. As you begin to know more about yourself and your feelings, increased understanding can lead to change.

Life can present many challenges. Most of the time, we can successfully handle the trials and tribulations of daily living; but occasionally we get overwhelmed. To help cope and feel much better, we consult a professional who sorts and sheds light on the elements that caused these challenges. In the process, we talk about how we feel and why we feel the way we do. Most importantly, we learn to successfully handle the initiating emotional triggers in a way such that the resultant problems no longer arise. My Los Angeles therapy practice is dediated to being that caring professional.

Learning from brilliant minds and teachers I combined discoveries I made from the world of life coaching, neuroscience and wellness practices with powerful psychotherapeutic techniques. The results have been dramatically more efficient and effective mental health and relationship improvement for my clients.

Personal and professional experience has led me to believe that there is nothing more healing for one's soul than intimate connection with others. If I can provide you with a safe space to openly and honestly share your story, then our work has more than just begun. I look to offer a sense of transparency, an authenticity in nature that invites you to feel comfort in my presence. There is great challenge and risk in this process, as well as great opportunity for growth and change-it would be a privilege to be a part of your journey.

Peer Relationships in Westwood, Los Angeles

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents. Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.

Positive Peer Pressure in Westwood, Los Angeles

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem. Peer pressure can encourage your teen's energy and motivate your teen to conform to healthy behavior. Peers can act as positive role models and demonstrate constructive social behavior. Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.

Negative Peer Pressure in Westwood, Los Angeles

The need for acceptance, approval, and belonging can lead some teens or tweens to engage in risky behavior in order to fit in with a group-contrasting values they may otherwise reject. In such situations, peer pressure can impair judgment and enable risk-taking behavior, drawing a teen away from the family and positive influences. Some teens harbor secret lives --including those who appear to be well-behaved, high-achieving teens when they are with adults -and engage in negative behavior when with their peers.
