My Approach to Helping

I help people recover from heartbreak, lost love and grief. I see people across the gender and sexuality spectrum (LGBTQ) and have an affinity for artists and creative individuals.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

First, you need to find a therapist who is a good fit and has the experience to work with your specific issues. This is what an initial consultation is generally about. After that, we start at the beginning, with who you are now and how you got this way. We look at what you want to do differently and how you want to grow. Through listening, thinking and sometimes laughing, we work to make meaning of what brought you to therapy and build a new foundation for your approach to life.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

People are fascinating. How they became who they are and watching as the grow and develop is profound and fun. I feel particularly grateful to work In West Hollywood and Santa Monica, cities filled with artists, writers, actors, comedians and all sorts of creative people.

Theoretical Influences that Guide My Work

Psychoanalysis and my background in fine arts are the two main influences that guide my work at a therapist. Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy is a vibrant and contemporary approach to mental health treatment. Currently, exciting developments in neuroscientific research display evidence of psychoanalytic psychotherapy creating new pathways in the brain, and having a lasting impact on a person.
