Announcement icon As of 3/16/2020, all sessions will be by video / tele health. As of 8/3/20 I am moving my office and all connected services to Los Angeles.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a private practice in Los Angeles, California. I strive to create an environment of compassion, authenticity and understanding, inclusive and welcoming to all clients. In working with me, you will identify the thoughts, feelings, behaviors and beliefs that are preventing you from living joyfully. I work with you to help you discover your strengths and capabilities so that you can live a life that is meaningful, rewarding and free from conflict. I believe that therapy must be engaging, non-judgmental, and supportive to facilitate growth.
I am practicing for over 25 years and am certified in attachment focused EMDR, a psychotherapy approach shown to be effective in the treatment of trauma and a wide range of other issues, such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD. EMDR integrates both cognitive and somatic approaches to healing trauma, emphasizing the interrelatedness of body, mind and spirit.
I firmly believe that we should all have the freedom to be who we are and to love whoever we want, expressing our sexuality in whichever way we feel most comfortable. I'm proud to support the LGBTQ+, sex-positive, polyamorous, and non-monogamy communities and consider sexuality to be an important part of life that should be fun for everyone.
