My Approach to Helping

I help people achieve greater insight into their lives. I cultivate an environment in which we can find more options that can lead to new and diverse patterns and experiences. In my approach to helping, we work together to identify old coping mechanisms which are no longer serving you well. I strive to establish a space in which we can safely evaluate which dynamics are working for you in your life, and how to let go of old defenses and patterns, which might be harmful.

More Info About My Practice

I accept any type of PPO insurance. I ask for payment in full at the time of each session, and provide you with a form to get reimbursement for your insurance company.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

My practice is devoted to helping people who are experiencing difficulties. I treat a lot of diverse issues. My work at the Wright Institute in Beverly Hills as well as the Maple Counseling Center, and as an intern supervisor was particularly focused on treating people who are dealing with panic attacks, depression, recovery, relational issues, and people pursuing greater self-insight and actualization and invested in a process of deepening themselves and enriching their life experience. My background and extensive training provided a wonderful platform for my 14 years in private practice.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Therapy can be a remarkable process in which we collaboratively co-create an environment in which we challenge our way of being in the world. The therapy I practice affords us a space in which you can safely reevaluate the dynamics in your life. Often we can realize that some of our ways of being in the world are born out of destructive patterns that you formed early in your life. Through our work together, you will be able to challenge those patterns and find new, and often, freeing options.
