I am a clinical psychologist in private practice for over 25 years. My private, well appointed office is located on the border of Beverly hills and West Hollywood .My clients are varied and include: professionals, students, physicians,, the entertainment industry and business executives who seek therapy for a variety of reasons including ;depression, anxiety,work, relationship issues, and wanting to develop healthier coping skills and improve their communication and relationships, reduce symptoms and modify unhealthy behaviors and problematic patterns hindering them from experiencing themselves more completely ,developing greater intimacy, confidence,sense of self contentment,authenticity and intimacy in their lives.
As a psychodynamic psychotherapist , I believe that our earliest relationships and development affect our sense of self and capacity to develop healthy and realistic expectations and relations with others. I work with a wide range of problems: anxiety,depression, sex- addiction,sexual dysfunction, ADD ,substance abuse,relationships and personality problems.
I believe that my 25 years of private practise experience, empathy, knowledge, caring and genuine concern have contributed to my success as a doctor and clinician.Physicians,Psychologists USC, CAL TECH often refer people to me based upon my success, experience and expertise as a clinician.
