Welcome to my site! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who provides psychotherapy in the West Hollywood/Los Angeles area. I work with adults, adolescents, couples and families, presenting with a range of symptoms.
I specialize in working with individuals who are in the process of healing from the effects of:
Addiction and related compulsive behaviors are mechanisms in which people cope when they have not learned to experience emotional pain, "legitimate suffering" (Jung). Contrary to popular belief, substances are not the problem, they become the solution. I focus on treating individuals on personal paths of recovery, as well as the underlying trauma that drives their behavior and contributes to relapse.
I am confident that we can co-create a safe place where exploring your most intimate struggles is possible. The confidentiality of the therapeutic relationship allows for a deeper exploration of your thoughts and feelings. My intention is to nurture the process while you experience catharsis, eliminating toxicity in the forms of shame, secrets and affliction.
"Beginning the course towards self-actualization is courageous work. "
You do not have to be ready for therapy. My focus is on meeting you where you are at, understanding ambivalence as part of the process. To begin the journey, you have to start somewhere. You are not alone and ultimately, with self-discipline and support, you will reach a milestone. To make an appointment or free consultation, I can be contacted at my office anytime:
