We humans have an innate desire to grow and develop to our fullest. For full development, we need a secure relationship with human connection, secure attachment and a sense of belonging are core. While many of us did not experience that deep connection and secure attachment earlier in our lives due to caretakers who were not optimally available to us because of their own unmet needs, preoccupations and human frailties. I am dedicated to providing that kind of secure attachment for you NOW. Out of this secure base, you CAN become the "best that you can be."

I have a specialization working with couples, families and individuals as well as in substance abuse/chemical dependency and addiction treatment (porn, sex & gambling). In many cases the depressed and anxious client is self medicating in some way to alter underlying feelings of depression, anxiety and intimacy/attachment issues. I use Somatic Experiencing, a very effective treatment for trauma/PTSD symptoms, helping the body and mind regulate itself. Clients in relationships with loved ones addicted or abusing substances can benefit from therapy to learn how to take care of themselves so as to limit the toxicity of proximity

My philosophy of therapy is holistic, meaning that I believe people are made up of many parts: body, soul (mind, emotions, will), and spirit. These parts must function in a balanced relationship in order for us to thrive. How we feel about ourselves and how we view the world affects the quality of our relationships. When we can balance a positive identity with our role in the world while also remaining connected to others, we feel whole. Brokenness can occur if any of these relationships are out of balance. In therapy, I help my clients assess the lack of balance so they can figure out how to get whole again.

I have found therapy to be a place where we can talk about aspects of our lives that might be stigmatized, misunderstood, or unseen in other social spheres. It is important to me to give clients the space to be authentic while they approach self-exploration, self-love, and judgeless venting. Working through past wounds or current obstacles deserves a safe space. ​ I like being a curious facilitator in my client's own process of gaining insight and awareness. I want my clients to tell their own stories, while they reshape and take back their narrative in a way that is empowering to them. ​

I believe what leads people to seek therapy is falling into the same, unhelpful patterns over and over again. These patterns can show up in our relationship to ourselves, to food, to substances, and to people. Most try to change on their own, but struggle to get un-stuck. I genuinely believe all people are worthy and capable of breaking these patterns and creating healthy relationships with themselves and with others. My clients report the ability to identify and to challenge negative self-beliefs that get in their way as well as to create a new set of skills that enable them to build resiliency.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Culver City, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

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