Psychotherapy is the use of verbal or other therapeutic-based modalities to create a positive change for the person seeking it. Psychotherapy is a unique process for each person who participates in it and the time that one spends in this process varies from case to case. Over time, one of the essential goals of psychotherapy is for our clients to obtain the necessary tools to work through issues on their own as they arise. It is essential that clients remember that psychotherapy is a process, and if done correctly, a beneficial one. I appreciate you trusting your therapeutic needs with me.

Santa Monica, California 90403 | 3108288004

Using a combination of individual and group therapy, I help my clients resolve the pain of the past and build the skills to thrive in the future. By understanding the root cause of psychological pain, releasing the emotions attached to the pain, and learning from the pain, my clients change their lives. You can too. If you are willing to do "the work," I am willing to help you. "Talk therapy," whether in a group or done one-to-one can heal old wounds, improve relationships, eliminate symptoms and increase self-esteem. If you feel "weak," because you are seeking therapy, I politely disagree. For me, it is the strong who walk thorough my door and ask for help. Choose to be strong.

James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Clinical Psychology Doctor

Available for Online Therapy

My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative in that I work with my clients to unearth dysfunctional patterns of behaving or relating that are keeping them from the fulfilling lives and/or relationships they seek. As a solutions-focused psychotherapist I use complementary therapy approaches and techniques to teach clients new skills, increase understanding and insight, and build healthier lifestyle habits that are customized to address their unique therapy goals. My clients are encouraged to practice these new behaviors and ways of thinking between sessions so that the changes they make through our work together produce more satisfying and fulfilling lives.

Because I work with clients regarding a variety of issues; my first goal in therapy is to discuss what is bringing you into treatment and what you hope to gain from your time with a therapist. Together, we will develop a plan for how to work on the issue you are seeking to address. My training includes therapies such as : DBT, CBT, EMDR, and compassion focused therapy to name a few. I believe in getting to the root of the issue and exploring what therapeutic intervention would be the best fit to meet your needs. It is possible to experience a positive change when going to therapy.
