Beginning therapy can be scary and intimidating, but also hopeful. Discussing your wishes and uncertainties in session can promote clarity and lead to positive changes in thinking and behavior that are necessary to improve circumstances and relationships. Action is required for positive life changes to occur. It isn't always easy figuring out what action to take or what changes to make. Therapy is a safe place to explore these thoughts and feelings. Small shifts can lead to large improvements in mood and relationships. Please reach out with questions or to schedule an initial consultation.

I am a psychotherapist currently in private practice in Santa Monica. I have been working with patients since 2010 and am currently a Ph.D. candidate at Pacifica Graduate Institute where I also earned an M.A. in Counseling Psychology. My therapeutic style integrates my academic education with training and experience in various modalities. I draw from a diverse clinical background to meet the particular needs and goals of each individual. While I am most influenced by Jungian and Buddhist psychology, intersubjective and attachment theory as well as somatic approaches highly inform my work.

In these times of uncertainty, I am here to help. I have years of experience and am able to work with you virtually. Call me! Listening for what is not said is often as important as what is said. No one therapeutic approach suits every client's need, so I tailor my approach based on what's best for the individual. My success with sober clients and others suffering from addictive disorders comes from my willingness to help them navigate the realities of life. Sometimes psychotherapy alone cannot cure mood disorders, just as drugs for depression and anxiety are less effective without concurrent psychotherapy.

As a Sexuality Specialist and CSAT, I have successfully treated clients struggling with many different sexual problems (Men: erectile dysfunction, rapid/premature/delayed ejaculation. Women: low desire, painful intercourse, vaginismus/vulvadynia. Either: sexual inexperience, sexual anorexia, childhood sexual traumas including incest).

Our sexuality is at the core of who we are as humans, and where we came from – it is our life force. It’s also at the core of our own identity. So many of us are searching for who we truly are. We’re so encapsulated in who we should be being for others, that we end up losing ourselves. This shows up most frequently in intimate relationships. Our desire for unconditional love from another supersedes our need for physical connection. Emotion trumps sexuality. And what goes on within our mind shuts down the abilities of our body. Are you feeling lost in your relationship? Do you desire more sexually?

Grief comes out of nowhere and slams you - hard. Whether you've recently lost a family member, career, your health, or someone or something else that you hold dear, the loss can knock you off-center. You used to manage your life pretty well, but now you can barely keep things together. You're distracted and irritable. You want to get back to normal, but you don't know how to get through the intense feelings that threaten to overwhelm you. And if your child or teen has also been affected by this loss, it's even more difficult to envision what "normal" might look like for your family, or how to get there.

Life will sometimes nudge and then shout at us when we need to pause and look within ourselves. It often comes at times when we feel sad, hurt, anxious, or depressed. It may be at times when relationship struggles, self-doubt, or loss arise. Whether you are returning to therapy or preparing to enter it for the first time, with this step change is already underway. As I see it, the therapy process is a journey to resolve painful experiences, gain insight, and develop strengths and new abilities, all which help to navigate life’s challenges. Healing is possible as well as clarity on how to move forward.

The process of therapy is one of self exploration and self discovery. Many of my clients seek therapy during life transitions or when experiencing relationship challenges. Some suffer from lack of self confidence, or are plagued by anxiety without an understanding of its cause. Through our work together I help people gain insight and understanding about the problems they’re encountering and become aware of unhelpful patterns they may be repeating. As a result of gaining new perspectives and understanding their emotional landscape on a deeper level, my clients often experience life in a more rich and meaningful way.

It is my belief that there are times in life when we feel stuck, or are experiencing suffering, and need support in order to move through and/or change patterns that are no longer of use. Sometimes it is necessary to access guidance from a professional outside of the current situation in order to assist in gaining perspective.

Your partner was fun and charming, but now you realize that he/she; is only interested in himself, is incapable of recognizing their responsibility when things go wrong, angry most of the time, and often has terrifying rage episodes; tell you that you are the crazy one. You feel isolated and confused and longer able to trust your own reality.
