In my therapy practice, I merge clinical research and Eastern spiritual traditions. I've trained for over a decade under Dr. Jeffrey M. Schwartz, a psychiatrist renowned for his Four-Step Method. This method pairs cognitive-behavioral therapy with the Buddhist concept of mindfulness. The Four Steps were originally designed to help people struggling with OCD, but this approach can help you move past a variety of emotional challenges, including depression, eating disorders, addiction, and anxiety.

In his new book, You Are Not Your Brain, Dr. Schwartz highlights my work. My work in neuroscience at UCLA coupled with my experience and training in meditation, spirituality, and mindfulness enable me to nurture my clients' spiritual and psychological growth. I utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches, but I am especially comfortable with depth psychology, Jungian therapy, and object relations. I offer therapy in a safe, nurturing, and secure environment, and I am dedicated to my own ongoing psychological and spiritual development. A therapist can only help a client grow as much as the therapist himself has grown. For more information on my work, please visit my website.
