Therapy is a deeply personal, multifaceted journey inward in an already complex world. To those who choose to venture down this road, the process can leave one feeling emotional and vulnerable, but it will also be healing, enlightening and enriching. Taking steps down this path is a virtuous act and I am here to honor you and your process. Together we will gently explore what may be causing you pain. Healing is at the heart of my practice - what you will experience with me is empathy, non-judgmental compassion, and authenticity. My therapeutic style is warm, energetic and engaged.

People come to my office with a variety of concerns related to relationships, identity, spirituality, career, self-development, or life purpose. Others may be seeking relief from trauma response patterns, anxiety or depression. In a rapidly changing and tumultuous world, people often feel comforted by the presence of a therapist who can provide a safe enough space to understand themselves, resolve conflicts, and live with more coherence and freedom from unfulfilling relational patterns. I listen with an intuitive and compassionate heart and give you tools to navigate through stressful times with greater resiliency and embodiment.

Early relationships shape the way the mind and brain develop from our young years into our adult lives. Our connections with caregivers induce neural circuit firings that persist throughout our lives, shaping how we think, feel, remember, and behave. When we are lucky enough to have secure attachment experiences in which we feel seen, safe, soothed, and secure—the “four S’s of attachment” that serve as the foundation for a healthy mind—these relational experiences stimulate the neuronal activation and growth of the integrative fibers of the brain.

Perhaps you’re experiencing body sensations or pains. Some problems are manageable while others feel overwhelming, this is not uncommon. Together we can explore how things show up for you and how often they are protective; they may not have been an issue before but now may not be serving you.

Play Therapy
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in Hollywood or for a Hollywood play therapist, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists and play counselors.

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

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