My Approach to Helping

At this moment, you are perfect exactly how you are. I believe in strength-based therapy. I believe in maximizing the positive and minimizing the negative. The client decides what they want to work on, and I work deep inside the client's conscious and sometimes the unconscious to discover strengths and wisdom they never knew they possess. I also am a Certified EMDR Therapist which my client dig deep into dark areas of their life.

More Info About My Practice

I have been a therapist for over 20 years. Besides my private practice, I was a Clinical Director for sliding-fee counseling center in Culver City. I have had previous experience as a Clinical Director for a youth group home, mental health director for DMH and FEMA, intake coordinator for a major hospital's lock unit, medication coordinator for a board and care for bipolar and other mental illness and a group facilitator for a cancer community. I work from a sliding fee basis. I encourage new clients who feel that they can't afford a seasoned and highly experience a therapist to give me a call. I love working with any or all family members interested in participating. I accept the following insurance providers: Anthem Blue Cross, Aetna, Blue Shield, Magellan, LA CARES, CHIPA, Medi-Cal and Reach.
