My Approach to Helping
Are you feeling trapped by other people's expectations of you? Overwhelmed by the pressure you put on yourself? Feeling stuck comparing yourself to others who seem to have it "better" than you? I help people listen to themselves and live more authentically. Through this process, my clients develop a greater love for themselves and others. Psychotherapy, to me, is a client-centered, collaborative experience. Together, we can help you become more insightful and take action. I trained at Harvard University as a doctoral intern and postdoctoral fellow. Throughout my career, I have also taught for several universities such as UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine and Pepperdine University. Overall, I taught for 14years (undergraduate, graduate and medical students).
My areas of focus include: Relationship (and dating) problems, workplace stress, depression, anxiety, divorce, breakups, issues related to sexual orientation and gender, marital problems, fertility issues, fear of public speaking, lack of confidence, low self-esteem, test anxiety, body image fears, substance abuse and animal-related concerns (i.e., grief over the loss of a pet). I have also helped many clients recover from relationships with narcissists.
