My Approach to Helping

*I am currently offering virtual sessions.*
Back in your 20s, you assumed you’d be settled down by now. You’d have it all: an amazing partner, the requisite 2.5 kids, maybe even a Labrador or two. Yet with each passing year, your secret fear of becoming the cat lady of your friend group intensifies. It’s not that you’re not trying. Trying feels like all you do lately. You’ve looked everywhere for answers. But no matter how many self-help books you devour or relationship experts you follow on Instagram, you still feel stuck in the maze of longing and indecision.

You need a therapist who understands how ready you are for a real relationship.

I'm passionate about partnering with successful single women who need to understand why they as soon as they get close to a partner, they find themselves coming up with every excuse in the book of why it won’t work. I'm committed to guiding you beyond choosing between a “might-as-well-settle-for” partner, or lonely Friday nights at home on the sofa.

I'll shine a light so you can feel confident on the journey from alone to together.

As a single woman in Los Angeles, I know what it’s like to feel like you’re drowning in a sea of endless profiles, exhausted as you search for your life partner. We both know the answer isn’t someone giving you tips on using Bumble—if only it was that simple. The feelings that come up when you try to get close hold the clues to the puzzle you’ve been trying to solve.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I'm passionate about helping you really embrace hope; not just in a fleeting emotional moment, but deep inside your innermost being. In our work together, I will illuminate your hidden truths, so you can gather your scattered pieces and put yourself back together again; encourage you to re-write the story of your life; and celebrate with you as you begin to truly love yourself.
I know from my own healing process and my 15 years as a therapist that you can embrace intimacy and discover more peace and joy than you ever thought possible.
