Clinical Social Work/Therapist , MSW , MSG, LCSW

(310) 692-9515
In times of personal crisis, it is natural to feel overwhelmed, alone, and disconnected from friends, family, and even yourself. When your usual strategies for "snapping out of it" are no longer working, you may feel stuck, irritable, fatigued, or generally disinterested in activities that would normally bring pleasure or meaning to your life. Ironically, it is often during your most vulnerable times that you also have the greatest capacity for healing and renewal. I believe in the resilience of the human spirit and the capacity for positive change - even in the darkest of times.
I specialize in issues related to grief and loss, living with chronic or life-limiting illness, caregiving, depression, anxiety, and the daily stress or challenges encountered as people progress through key life transitions. I combine over 20 years of clinical experience with compassion, humility, and respectful humor.
My approach to psychotherapy is holistic, collaborative, and interactive. I have a compelling curiosity that encourages seeking out and pursuing what will allow you to thrive, rather than merely survive. Call today for a free telephone consultation.
