a psychotherapist, I work with people who are struggling with
depression, anxiety, bipolar
disorder, PTSD, substance
dependence, eating disorders, and
self-injury. These issues tend to coincide
with low self-esteem and relationship
problems with family and friends. For many individuals
it is difficult to admit that help is needed in order to sort
through their challenges. Even more, when people do make the
decision to seek assistance they may be unclear about what to
expect from psychotherapy.
All sessions are 50 minutes and are based in the safety of
a warm and supportive therapy environment. Phone sessions are
also available depending on the circumstances. You can contact
me to discuss my current fee. I do offer limited sliding scale
appointments based on your income and ability to pay. I am an
ethical and trustworthy psychotherapist. Your confidentiality
is of utmost importance.
I specialize in working with adolescents /
young adults and their families.
I help them explore alternate ways of living and being. Often
they tend to be “stuck” in unhealthy ways of relating to one
another. Of course, every situation and case is unique, and
thus different treatment techniques will apply. I draw from
various therapy modalities and am eclectic in approach. I tailor
treatment to each client’s presenting problem, their needs,
and goals in order to provide symptom relief. In many cases,
I examine what triggers the problematic behaviors or feelings
with the client. We then observe the consequential effects on
their actions, thoughts, and words. Many emotions tend to surface,
including hurt, pain, and resentment, which are processed during
the course of psychotherapy.
all my clients, teens and adults, I bring forward their strengths
and increase self-awareness so that they are better able to
make genuine life decisions. I assist them, either as individuals
or within the family, to develop clear communication, healthy
boundaries, and trusting relationships. Together we discuss
new possibilities. Over time my clients tend to exhibit a more
positive attitude with preferable thinking and choices.
My commitment to improve the quality of people’s lives inspires
me. I hope to be of assistance to those needing the support
of psychotherapy. My private practice is in West Los Angeles.
