After years of intensive training, I graduated summa cum laude from Washington University in St. Louis, and then graduated from California School of Professional Psychology with a doctorate in psychology. I have a clinical focus and an integrative approach; I pull from many different modalities to customize an experience to promote healing and change.
I have been in practice for over 18 years.
I offer therapy in Agoura Hills and therapy in Santa Monica. My experience, empathy and insight let me really dig in and understand issues with you. I work diligently to help untangle the dynamics of your life. I work with adults, adolescents and children ten years of age and older. I also work with couples.
Due to the extraordinary circumstances resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, I have also expanded my practice to work with people remotely. Theses unprecedented times with the novel coronavirus are leaving people feeling out of control, scared and helpless. My work with trauma victims and other people who have experienced painful events in their lives, has sensitized me to the possibility of personal growth that can enable us to ease anxiety, reveal insights, find options and reframe the current circumstances to something that can be more calmly navigated.
My experience enables me to offer effective outpatient, individualized, psychological care. I treat a number of mental health disorders, and provide a neutral ground to individuals, families, and couples.
My focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of and trust their inner strength. I achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, uncovering hidden potential and co-creating and customizing the implementation of new options and skills which assist the treatment plan.
I promise to be there for you every step of your journey. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life.
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. I help to peel back the layers of fear and sadness in a collaborative environment. Through this we co-create a process that will help you recover motivation, perspective, and the joy that you once had in your life.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger after traumatic events. Some of these emotions can fuel addictive behavior. I can help you overcome these addictions, lessen the symptoms and guide you through the process of healing.
Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. I work with couples and individuals hoping to establish a stronger and healthier connection. I create a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to strengthen your relationships.
