My Approach to Helping

My many years of experience, compassion, empathy, non-judgmental approach, and strong sensitivity guides me to help each person as a unique individual. I believe that Psychotherapy is an Art, and how I connect with each person and help each person, differs. Every person is the expert on their life and I am here to join with the person to help them. Therefore, therapy is a collaborative process. It is up to the client to decide what is right for them. I am very open to working with various cultures, genders and with LGBTQ+ clients. I am continuously learning and continuously enjoy and learn from my clients as well. Each client has left their impression on me. I draw from many years of education, training, and experience when I work with clients. My B.A. and M.A. are in Clinical Psychology. I also earned a minor in Women's Studies along with my B.A. With my M.A., I also earned an emphasis on Marriage and Family Therapy. After graduate school at Pepperdine, I completed a two year post graduate program in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy at SCPI (So. Calif. Psychoanalytic Institute in Beverly Hills). In addition to providing therapy, I also provide clinical supervision for therapist interns. I have supervised therapy interns for several years and greatly enjoy mentoring new therapists by providing their training hours required by the Board of Behavioral Sciences. As an animal lover, I have added a specialty to my practice to prescribe Emotional Support Animals.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love being a Psychotherapist because I get to help others who are in pain, are going through difficult times, are lost, are stuck, need support, want empowerment, etc. I get to use my experience, knowledge and skills I have accumulated throughout many years to help others. I also have also had pain, losses and various difficulties in my life and I can relate to a lot of my clients situations, and can also use those experiences to help me understand with my clients.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

If you are concerned about coming to therapy, just know that you can come in once, twice, or as many times as you would like. I provide brief therapy, consultations and long term therapy. I have a flexible approach, and helping my clients feel comfortable in the room is a top priority.
