My Approach to Helping

I believe that therapy can facilitate healing and personal progress. Studies have shown that clients feel the most satisfaction from therapy when they feel very connected to their therapist. Making sure you feel that your sessions are productive and valuable is a priority for me.

I have worked with children, adolescents, adults and families for over 20 years and am very passionate about building a connection with my clients. I'll be honest in letting you know how we can work together to address past traumas, current relationships, and current problematic behavioral patterns.

In addition to being a private practice therapist, I teach at the USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work where I train future therapists in a variety of clinical modalities.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have years of experience in working with clients with post-trauma and feel that EMDR is very effective in treating post traumatic symptoms.

I also feel very passionate about working with people who want better relationships. I understand the underlying dynamics which sometimes affect our relationships, and feel that a knowledgeable therapist can help clients understand these dynamics

My expertise is in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which research has shown to be effective for a variety of issues.
