Choosing a therapist is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. So here are two thoughts on what to consider when selecting one: 1 • Do a little research: Set up a time to talk with at least two therapists. You may get a good feeling from the first one, but it’s always helpful to get another point of view. But in the end, go with your gut! 2 • The fee and time limit on the initial call: I DO NOT charge a fee nor is there a time limit for the call. It’s determined by you getting the information you need, sharing some of your story, discussing the fee; and if you feel comfortable, setting up an session. Good luck!

I enjoy working collaboratively with adults and teens to create a comforting and safe space where insight into inner processes can begin to unfold. When we understand and have compassion for our particular reactions to things, we begin to live in a state of greater peace and become able to connect to our deepest and most unique resources. Learning to calm and soothe our body’s response to stress can be life changing and enables us to harness our greatest potential.

A person most often seeks therapy when a part of his/her life feels unmanageable. Often past skills used to cope are no longer effective and one may feel vulnerable and alone even in the presence of others. Sometimes these feelings occur after a recent transition in a relationship, career choice, or a recent move. At other times, someone may experience diffuse feelings of anxiety and sadness without a specific stressor.

We all face conflicts that at times become “too much.” When we feel overwhelmed there’s a natural tendency to want to restore balance in ourselves and our lives. Any conflict—in love, work, body image, physical symptoms—can lead to anxiety, shame and a sense of "going through the motions." Whether you’re dealing with current or long-standing difficulties, there are effective ways to understand and soften painful feelings. Life can be better when you open to new thinking, curb negativity and break repetitive cycles; you become kinder to yourself. You can find your own voice.

I studied at UCLA and Pepperdine and worked in UCLA's Marriage Lab studying what makes great marriages. Early on I counseled both elementary school children and homeless schizophrenic people in New York City. I have special training in grief therapy and sex therapy and enjoy working with matters of both loss and sex. I've spent a lot of time working with creative entrepreneurs, couples, and lots and lots of women. If I had to choose a favorite group...I just couldn't. It's all important and fulfilling to me.

I specialize in sexual issues and persistent psychogenic pain. Both of these realms entail working through trauma, anxiety, grief, impulsivity, and depression. In sex therapy, I help clients grappling with issues around functioning, sexual shame, sexual trauma, impulsive behaviors, sex and porn "addictions," low and hyper-arousal issues - all from a sex-positive, kink/poly/bdsm-friendly stance. I also help couples navigate challenges in their intimate relationships. With chronic pain and discomfort, I help people change their relationship to the symptoms, which leads to drastic reduction and often elimination of symptoms.

I really enjoy working with individuals and couples. I help clients become more aware of their body sensations and use that language to identify feelings and thoughts. This allows clients to connect with their full internal experience. Clients find this extremely helpful, especially those who have suffered traumatic incidents or long-term traumas. I am gentle and supportive in my work and use deep emotional exploration of past and present mixed with a body-based mindful approach to move clients toward healing. I am EFT informed when it comes to couples work. Couples find me grounding, fair, and supportive.
