About

You sat down at your computer to find help, but you’ve been sitting there, immobile. Your body and emotions feel numb, almost paralyzed. Even though you’re stuck, you know it’s time to do something different. You’ve tried finding resilience in the things that used to help…but food, music, even relationships leave you feeling unfulfilled. At work, your inner critic shouts, “You’re a fraud!” Living in Los Angeles takes every ounce of energy you’ve got. And what’s the point if you can’t connect to your own inner strength? Is it even possible to have a genuine and joyful relationship with yourself?
Your curiosity and openness can take you past judgment and fear. Approaching your feelings with kindness is a skill in itself. You can make peace with the past, accept the present and move towards a joyful future. A respectful and supportive therapist can help reveal the story you’ve been enacting, so you can choose your own adventure.
“Perhaps all the dragons in our life are princesses… perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love,” Rilke said. Looking closely at your story can be transformative. I will help you with respect and patience to create a version of your life that will delight you. Call me today to get started.
