"I am one of the few Existential Therapists in Los Angeles who specializes in treating anxiety and depression. What distinguishes me as Existential is my emphasis on the four concerns of existence. These are the inevitability of death for each of us and for those we love; the absence of any obvious meaning to life; our ultimate aloneness; and the freedom to make our lives as we will. I believe that our individuality is formed by our beliefs about these concerns. Anxiety stems from a denial of them. Depression stems from a feeling of powerlessness in the face of them. Change occurs when you know what you believe."

"As a contemporary psychoanalyst who specializes in attachments, and how they evolve throughout the lifespan, my focus is on three themes, your emotional life, your relational life, and the skills you will need to make the first two work. How do I do this? Through empathy, imagination, compassion, and collaboration, and humor. I may be an expert on the process of therapy, but you are the authority on your self, as well as your thoughts and feelings on those you love or hope to love. There is one more thing: as a poet, I believe in everyone developing personal passion"

The ultimate goal is to stay focused and engaged on this conversation, while hoping that we can both be changed by this engagement. In a therapeutic relationship it is important that we're both comfortable, we both trust each other, and we trust that the conversation is aimed at something of mutual benefit. "
