The relationship between therapist and patient has a context, a sharing of subjective experiences that cannot help but play out in unique and meaningful ways. Because every human being and each individual's process is unique, I won't put you through a series of pre-determined exercises or fit you into some theoretical model. I work in collaboration with you to explore, discover, illumine, and heal the wounds that have kept you from expanding into the fullness of who you are meant to be.

The process of therapy is and should be tailored to each individual's life experience. Research shows that clients in therapy, who seek assistance to deal with a whole range of issues, challenges, thoughts, and emotions, can experience a positive benefit. In our collaborative work, we will complete a comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment, where we look at many life factors that may be contributing to those challenges for which therapy is being considered. After an assessment, we will have a clearer idea of core values, possible goals and many ideas on designing a flexible plan that is easy to understand and use to bring about the transformation desired.

Psychotherapy is not anything to be scared of, or intimidated about. Seeking out a therapist or being in therapy isn't an admission of weakness or some kind of character flaw. Therapy is a collaborative process and a partnership with someone who is trained in and experienced with facilitating personal growth. And in this process, you are in the driver's seat. Our minds and emotions and relationships involve complicated machinery just like our bodies do and in the same way a medical doctor helps you stay physically healthy, Psychotherapy is designed to help you be and stay mentally and socially strong, and continually in a position to take on life's many challenges as your best self.

Many people think about starting psychotherapy for a long time before working up the courage to follow through. It is a scary thing to open up to a stranger about your deepest thoughts, fears, and insecurities; but it is also an incredibly brave thing to do! You have chosen to take a step towards improving your life and that takes effort and courage! It is always a privilege for me to help guide a client to a healthier and more balanced life. I'm not going to lie and say I can make you happy, I can't, but I can help you learn how to create your own happiness, and learn how to become your own therapist so that you can continue making positive changes long after our time together is over.

As co-therapists we bring greater awareness of what is going on in the room. We focus on the here and now. We bring experience in Gestalt, humanistic, mindfulness and narrative therapy into the room. We strive to create a safe and collaborative environment. We work together to help couples understand their patterns of behavior, acting out, shutting down and arguing. We focus on how a couple fights and not what they fight about. When we help you to understand and accept who you are now, change becomes a reality.

A high level of trust and comfort for you in psychotherapy is a must. Working with an experienced therapist you can rely upon to listen skillfully will help you to learn to to lift negative moods, become a better problem solver, or improve relationships. Can simply sharing your problems with a therapist be enough to help you improve? I often hear from new patients that they were dissappointed in prior therapy because they were not helped to foucus and to use specific tools that not only made them feel better in therapy, but also in their lives. Therapy should be designed to help you learn at you own, most effective pace for you.

Sometimes the harder try to connect, the more distant and lonely you end up feeling. Yet you keep using the same ineffective strategies, because what else can you do? Or maybe you give up. You are probably spending enough time and effort already trying to make it work — you’re just doing it in the wrong way. I can help you channel your efforts more successfully using emotionally focused therapy (EFT).

What is keeping you from living the life you want? Individual therapy is a powerful tool to identify goals and remove the obstacles that prevent you from experiencing more fulfilling relationships with yourself, your work, and other people. Individuals come to therapy at different moments in life. If you are experiencing anxiety or depression, struggling with self-esteem or relationship issues, abusing substances, feeling professionally frustrated, or experiencing grief and loss, the process of individual therapy is an effective way to create the change you want to see in your life.

Adolescent & Emerging Adulthood Specialist

In 90401 - Nearby to Pacific Palisades.

If your young adult is feeling isolated and alone, I can help them explore the circumstances that have led them to this place in their life. Sometimes healing is derived from simply gaining understanding of how their life experiences have impacted them and shaped who they are. I can help your young adult examine how their early childhood experiences have influenced the lens through which they currently view the world. I can also help them evaluate any rules they made up about the meaning of life. Together, we can design a new and more fulfilling story for their future.

Clients come to see me because they have the same arguments over and over. Couples tell me they don't understand each other; and they don't listen to each other. After working with me, couples learn new ways to talk to each other. They feel more loved, more care about, and more understood. Couples and families report that they get along better, things are calmer at home, and there is less fighting. Clients tell me..."We catch ourselves going back to old patterns. Then, we get our homework sheet out and do it differently. Thank you for helping us communicate better."

I believe in showing my clients empathy, compassion, and unconditional positive regard. There is no script to follow. It is simply listening, holding space, withholding judgement, emotionally connecting, and communicating the incredibly healing message of, "You are not alone." My approach to helping is to show up authentically, without judgment and provide unconditional acceptance and guidance in the therapy room. My philosophy regarding psychotherapy is that healing happens in a warm and safe therapeutic relationship. What I find most important is creating a space between the therapist and client that is sacred, unique, very honest, and above all, compassionate. I use down to earth examples and exercises as a way to approach the healing process...(view profile to read more)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a specialized form of therapy that focuses on a person's thoughts and beliefs, and how they influence a person's emotions and actions. As a client, you will learn how to identify distorted or unhelpful thinking patterns, recognize and change inaccurate beliefs, relate to others in more positive ways, and change behaviors accordingly. CBT's ability to help change a person's thinking to be more adaptive, effective, and healthy, while helping them change unhealthy behavior patterns, will lead to the alleviation of symptoms and an improved quality of life.

My approach to psychotherapy does not involve years of talk about issues until the client reaches a "catharsis," and suddenly is cured. It is more of a collaboration and involves the client to engage in his own therapy. We look for solutions, rather than talking about "problems" endlessly. As a person-centered therapist, I believe an authentic, respectful and caring relationship with the client fosters growth and self-actualization. The use of cognive-behavioral methods, allows us to look for underlying beliefs the client may have about his place in the world, and unrealistic thought patterns, such as "all-or-nothing" thinking. These can be redirected to provide positive outomes.

By discussing your inner-most thoughts and feelings with an objective and caring psychologist over a period of several weeks or months, most people begin to gradually discover growth and improvements in many areas of their lives from relationships to employment to general happiness. It is often said that "the unexamined life is not worth living", and most of us would agree.
