Marriage & Family Therapist , LMFT , MSEd

(818) 835-5147
I am honored when people come in to meet with me. I also respect the fact that this process can be difficult for some. I am happy to work at the pace with which you are most comfortable. The majority of my clients fit into 4 categories: 1.Adults trying to develop greater confidence. 2.Couples in conflict, needing to find a better way to connect and communicate. 3.Families experiencing tension, or going through a difficult change. 4.Children who need emotional support, and greater coping skills, and parents who are needing tools to help their children.
For over 25 years, I have helped former cult members and those who have loved ones in cults. I provide individual counseling, family counseling, and, when possible, group therapy for former cult members. I also help families who are trying to reach out to their loved one in the cult.
Two other areas of specialization are: 1. Helping the siblings of those with special needs. 2. Overexposure to pornography which can cause relationship and/or intimacy issues, or be the result of partners not feeling they can get what they need from their loved one.
