My Approach to Helping

In your therapy, we will create a safe place to take risks and explore your blind spots. Without judgment, we can experiment as you search for your truth. We can look at the unconscious negative beliefs that are holding you back, using tools to get out of the head and into the deeper layer of feelings and intuition.

I would love to help you navigate anxiety, relationship issues, family issues, trauma, or just feeling stuck. I work with adults and couples. My style is reflective, trauma-informed and body-based. Therapy is never easy, but the human ability to grow, even after years of hurt, is unstoppable. If any of this resonates with you, let's talk.

I see clients in person in northeast Los Angeles and on Telehealth throughout the state of California.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I'm constantly amazed at how hard my clients work to evolve and self-actualize, creating the life and relationships they know they deserve. I do not consider myself an expert, but more of a gardener helping to remove weeds so that the inherent plant can flourish. I find being a psychotherapist to be a wildly optimistic profession and am grateful to be able to do it!

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

It took me decades to finally start going to therapy in earnest. If you are not ready, that is ok. If you are on the fence, I invite you to try a free consultation with me and other therapists who interest you. Finally doing that myself was one of the most life changing decisions I ever made.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

Before I went to therapy, I did the same thing again and again while hoping for different results. I would get excited about a person, a project, or an idea, and then lose interest. I had friends, some money, and an impressive resume, but I couldn?t figure out why I felt stuck and confused. In therapy, I began to realize that I couldn't tolerate my own discomfort long enough to stay when things got real. I saw that my head was full of other people?s voices. Slowly, I learned that the artfulness of life isn't in pleasing myself or others. I learned that the power is in being present with reality, uncomfortable as it can sometimes be.
