My Approach to Helping

I view therapy as an active collaboration. I aim to offer a safe and intelligent place where clients may explore their lives and relationships, work through old patterns and current areas of discontent, and identify and utilize strengths--and strategies--for personal growth and more optimistic and fulfilling lives. My experience in doing clinical research on trauma informs my work; I believe we possess inherent strengths that, when recognized and utilized, can help us create lives we want to live.

I believe all therapy--including individual and couples counseling--is family therapy. Early experiences, both positive and negative, inform our thoughts, feelings and behavior in the present. While I assist clients with current concerns, I believe working to understand motivations and patterns rooted in the past can help us explore the possibility of change, and to have what we want and need now. Areas of expertise include processing trauma and post-traumatic stress, and relational counseling, including work with couples and family therapy.

My private practice is informed by my work researching and treating post-deployed combat veterans and as a writer. In addition to practicing psychotherapy, I am the author of 30 books, and have written widely on families, parenting, trauma, sexual trauma, and other subjects. I currently serve as a consultant to First 5 LA.

More Info About My Practice

I am an out-of-network provider, and am happy to provide receipts for treatment for you to submit for reimbursement to your insurance company. I offer early morning and after-work office hours and do teletherapy as appropriate.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Relationship issues, PTSD, sexual trauma, exploring and resolving family conflicts, creative and artistic issues, managing life transitions, building self-compassion

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

I believe that therapy can help accelerate the changes you wish to see in yourself, in your relationships, and in your life. While I don't work on a strictly short-term model of therapy, I do hope for those changes to at least begin to occur within a few sessions. Although each client is different and has his or her own needs and way of working, I hope to help all gain insights that they can use both immediately and long after they leave my office.
