My Approach to Helping

Have you ever experienced changes that later seem to fade? This is because changes that occur at a more surface level are not as long-lasting as growth that happens in a much deeper way, using a depth approach (Leichsenring & Rabung, 2008). Exploring and understanding underlying core issues, behavioral patterns, and emotional injuries within a warm and collaborative relationship lead to better relationships with ourselves and with others (Norcross & Lambert, 2011). I want to help you move through blocks that you continuously encounter in your life so that you can make healthier choices within your professional, social, and personal lives. We tend to repeat behaviors that we do not understand. In psychotherapy, we can stay curious about, unpack, and heal the many parts of you that can often be ignored and avoided. Everyone needs that one person in their lives with whom they feel comfortable and safe to be truthful. I provide that space for you to be vulnerable in a way that you may struggle with being around loved ones.

More Info About My Practice

My office is located in a beautiful and private courtyard, away from the overstimulating streets of West LA. I realize how important physical space is in order to feel comfortable and safe so that you can be vulnerable. The location of my office and the office itself can help you to feel at ease and motivated to do therapeutic work.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

The purpose of psychotherapy is to reclaim and create the life that you deserve. Psychotherapy can help you to feel 'whole' and equipped to handle stressors in a more confident and healthy way. Treatment includes a trusting, supportive, and caring relationship between the therapist and client. This strong therapeutic bond helps clients to live a more authentic and joyous life.
