My speciality is working with people of all ages that are highly sensitive, empathic, and intuitive. They usually know who they are, but keep it quiet in order not to stand out, but to fit in with social situations. Highly sensitive people are like sponges. They absorb other people's energies and are not sure what to do with it. They may have a sixth sense that has been undervalued or they don't know how to use it both in their professional and personal lives. What they do know is how it has been effecting their life and how tiring it is.

Better is possible. Crises, life transitions, and losses can bring new triggers to old traumas. You may find yourself struggling with feelings that are debilitating, even immobilizing. Anxiety, sadness, and overwhelm can leave you feeling unable cope in healthy, appropriate ways. But it can get better, and you don't have to go at it alone. Therapy is an invitation to attend to your feelings and thoughts. In the deep reflection that therapy allows, you can become aware of the choices hidden behind the pain and confusion. You can gain reconnection to your core, essential self. You can move towards recovery and wholeness.

The most successful component of therapy is the relationship that you and your therapist will build. And building this relationship in a safe non - judgmental environmental is crucial. I will provide this environment for you, to allow you the freedom to express yourself, thus enhancing your personal growth. I greatly enjoy working with individuals from all walks of life. This includes students, professionals, retirees, parents, unemployed etc. I have also worked closely with undergraduate- and graduate students in both the helping professions as well as the sciences. Let's meet and see if we can work together.

Emotional wellness is not a given, especially for those who have experienced trauma or adversity. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for working through difficult feelings and internal conflicts. For example, one person may struggle to access their feelings and need help breaking through numbness, while another tends to get flooded by emotions and needs help containing their overwhelming experience. Making sense of distressing and confusing states of mind is at the heart of psychotherapy. Doing this is an act of courage, one that is made much easier with professional help. I am here to support you in your growth process.

As a clinical psychologist in practice for 20+ years, I am interested in the journey of life - who you are and want to be, what you've done and still hope to do, and where you've been and are headed. At times, the "nodal points of life" (entering/exiting school, job, relationship, or phase of life) can bring anxiety and depression leading to self-doubt, unhappiness, and even despair. When you hit a roadblock that makes you loose your way and your dreams, getting help makes all the difference in restoring hope, joy and love.

People seek therapy with me for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it is about something specific like a relationship problem, eating disorder, parenting issue, or many other human dilemmas. At other times it is because of general feelings of depression, anxiety, difficulty concentrating or dissatisfaction at work or in their relationships. We can talk on the phone to determine what you need and then I will work closely with you to determine the best course of therapy.

“A bridge of silver wings stretches from the dead ashes of an unforgiving nightmare to the jeweled vision of a life started anew.” ― Aberjhani / I am honored to have opportunities to join fellow humans on journeys of reconsidering our relationships to our problems. Being curious about our perspectives on the elements holding us back is integral to our healing. In this space of curiosity, I collaborate with clients to understand the messages that symptoms are communicating to us. Instead of striving to mask or avoid whatever may be ailing us, we befriend it. Through our relationship, we grow towards our authentic selves.

Psychodynamic therapy in South, Pasadena, 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.
