My counseling office is located in the Playa Jefferson building in Playa Vista, CA. I graduated from Emory University with a Bachelors of Arts and from Antioch University with a Masters in Clinical Psychology.

I understand the difficult economic times we are going through and therefore have a sliding scale to help accommodate your financial needs. If you believe you or your child needs therapy it is very important that help is received so please call me. We can look at the sliding scale and your needs and find something that will work for both of us.

My training was at the Southern California Counseling Center where I successfully worked with young adults, adults, and seniors who experienced a variety of issues including work stress, dating life and relationships, depression and anxiety. I have worked at the Miracle Mile Community Practice with adults which included working with court mandated cases, domestic violence cases, and mood and anxiety cases. I also worked at Fairfax High School and in a private school setting as a school counselor with a wide range of teen issues including abuse.

I am currently working with young adults, adults, seniors, couples, families and teenagers with a wide array of issues and disorders including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Mood Disorders
  • Relocation Therapy
  • Premarital Counseling
  • OCD
  • Dating
  • Anger
  • Substance Use
  • Eating Disorders
  • Work Stress
  • Bullying
  • Peer Pressure
  • Relationship Issues
  • Social Media Issues
  • Individual Counseling
  • Couples Counseling
  • Family Counseling

In my private practice I use a Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral approach. My belief is that the environment in which grow up greatly effects who you are and the life you will lead. By looking at all of the influences in your past and present, we can then look at the choices you have made and together we can come to understand what changes are desired. As this knowledge of the desired changes comes forward, I then use the more active and directive approach called Cognitive Behavioral therapy. Cognitive Behavioral therapy first helps to discover the thoughts and behaviors that are keeping you stuck in their problems and then utilizes methods to work on changing those thoughts and behaviors to ones that will help you get what you want.
