I utilize a collaborative approach to therapy (which includes modalities such as psychodynamic therapy, existential therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, as well as an interpersonal, and a client-centered perspective) to help empower clients to find their own meaning, happiness, and peace in their lives.
I believe that healing, growth, and change are available to all people, regardless of their present circumstances or their past misfortune. I help clients identify their challenges and their goals, and to find viable ways to help each client make changes along their psychological, social, and biological axes of life. I believe that no one is an island and that there is no shame in reaching out for help. I seek to provide an empathetic and intellectually engaging environment to cultivate insights and promote growth.

Are you currently struggling with some big issues in your life? Do you find your days full of unpredictable and/or challenging moments? Everyone is different and responds to adversity in their own way. It is understandable that you may need a little extra support in getting through it. It's okay to feel anxious, sad, or stressed. These are normal, human emotions. The trick is not letting them overpower you. It's important to take care of your mental health so that you can come out of this time in your life stronger and wiser. Being here shows you're already progressing in your journey. Let me tell you about how I can help.

I use interpersonal, psychodynamic, cognitive and strength base therapy as I believe that the relationship tends to be more important than "technique" and focus on where you are and what you need.
I understand the challenges, hopes, and fears you face in the process of seeking therapy. Our goal is to create together a safe atmosphere that will enable you to explore. At the same time, I look at underlying issues you may have and confront them in an empathic manner. In addition to private practice, I teach, write, and present locally and nationally. While I work with both women and men from many walks of life, my specialties include men's issues, fatherhood, sports psychology, working with executives, and diversity training.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Westlake Village, 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.
