My Approach to Helping

I believe that everyone can benefit from therapy at some point in their lives. Whether you struggle with persistent, troubling thoughts or feelings, are overwhelmed by events that are out of your control or just want to get in touch with a deeper sense of meaning and purpose in your life, therapy can help. I specialize in perfectionism, trauma, grief and loss, anxiety, depression and life transitions.
My approach is relational, warm and direct. I believe in meeting clients where they are, focusing initially on helping them to feel relief and containment for whatever they may be struggling with. We then work together to better understand feelings and patterns, to heal from unresolved traumas and to find a deeper sense of purpose in their lives.

More Info About My Practice

My practice is conveniently located on Beverly Dr in Beverly Hills where I see clients in person, virtually or a combination of the two depending on client's preference and ability to come into the office. My approach and training is psychodynamic, relational, trauma informed and culturally sensitive.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

First and foremost, therapy offers relief. You may feel like you are struggling and carrying the burden of your struggle all on your own, but you don't have to suffer alone. Therapy provides a relationship where pain and distress can be contained and held. The therapeutic relationship is different from other relationships in that it is primarily focused on your healing. Most people find that sharing their experience with a therapist who feels safe, understanding and non-judgmental, offers a great deal of relief in and of itself.
As therapy continues, it becomes a space not only for containment, but also for healing and exploration. This process provides an opportunity to more deeply know and understand yourself. Bringing an attitude of curiosity to your experiences, both past and present, allows us to discover insights into why you may feel a certain way, or why you may continually find yourself in familiar patterns.
Through the process of gaining more understanding and insight about your past and present, self-compassion grows and you begin to feel more connected to yourself. As you regain a fuller sense of yourself, relationships improve and life grows richer with meaning and purpose. The insights you gain through therapy will allow you to take better care of yourself and to feel as though you can make decisions that are more aligned with your true desires.
