Psychologist, PsyD
"The relationship is everything. We aren't ourselves when we don’t feel comfortable with someone. I understand this, and so my work centers on establishing a working relationship that fosters collaboration and mutual understanding. My motto is: “You are the expert on you.” So I rely on you to help me understand your values and approach to life. When I have a sense of who you are (and of us as a team) we get to embark on identifying the patterns and pitfalls, so as to increase awareness and focus on making meaningful changes that are right for you."
"My practice has focused on the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD, often with associated psychological disorders such as Depression, PTSD, OCD, Anxiety and Mood Disorders for over 30 years. I provide a collaborative, solution focused approach to changing inefficient or undesirable patterned behaviors. I work with adult students, business professionals, and stay at home parents to help reduce inefficient behaviors due to inattention,distraction,poor memory, impulsivity, and/or mood disorders. I work with couples when one of the partners exhibits ADHD symptoms such s forgetfulness, impulsivity or inattention. My approach is solution focused, with a" what can we do to make it better" approach."
"I believe that each person's life is unique and precious no matter how the person perceives it. I truly believe in our innate healing power and creativity. Together, we work to increase your awareness, expand your capacity to perceive realities and perspectives, and to grow to be something larger than current self. I work for children and adults who are suffering from depression, anxiety, loss & grief, relationships and existential difficulty through life transitions or past traumatic experiences. I also work for couples who are seeking for reconciliation and better communication to understand each other."
Marriage & Family Therapist Intern, MA
"Whether I'm working with couples, individuals, youth, children, or parents, I focus on guiding clients in finding balance, understanding, and solutions in order to move toward their goals. With couples, I utilize Gottman Method, recognized by many as the most effective therapy model for couples. I help couples manage conflict, deepen their friendship and intimacy, and create shared meaning in their lives. Couples therapy, believe it or not, can be an enjoyable and deeply healing process. I also work with a therapy dog named Phoenix, who can be a real comfort when things get hard."
"I have practiced psychoanalytic psychotherapy since 1983.My training included working at two large teaching hospitals in Los Angeles from 1977-1983, UCLA and LA County USC Medical Center. Upon graduation I was appointed to the clinical faculty of the USC School of Medicine where I supervised and taught psychology interns.I view psychoanalytic psychotherapy as an in depth talking treatment aimed at identifying and resolving underlying emotional conflicts that cause self defeating coping strategies that constrict and impair quality of life. The therapeutic relationship is central to this in-depth explanation along with unhurried time."
"I have successfully used TIR, Traumatic Incident Reduction, with my clients for 15 years. TIR appears on the National Registry for Evidence-Based Practices and Programs. It is a rapid (compared to traditional therapy) method of effectively reducing traumatic stress from emotionally or physically painful past events resulting in the permanent elimination of PTSD symptomatology, enabling you to move on with a greatly improved quality of life. I also use Life Stress Reduction which makes use of an array of techniques designed to relieve issues such as depression, anxiety, anger problems, relationship difficulties, job/career concerns, financial problems, health concerns, and grief and loss."

"We are all searching for ways to lead fulfilling lives, but sometimes we struggle to find the things that will help sustain us or the obstacles of life can begin to feel overwhelming. As a therapist, I help to identify the things that nourish each individual and act as a partner in learning strategies for moving through the difficult times. I strive to maintain empathy, compassion, and openness with each of the clients I work with and value a collaborative relationship that allows my clients to steer treatment in the direction most useful to them."
"I enjoy working with a wide age range of adults impacted by, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, grief, domestic violence/abuse, PTSD, employment/workplace, and medical concerns. Whether the challenges you face are personal, health, or work related, I will help you set goals that are important to you. I provide a safe, non-judgmental environment to help you identify factors that keep you from change you wish to see in your life. Together, we will overcome these challenging factors and accomplish your goals. I view counseling as a preventative, integrative approach to a happy and healthy lifestyle."
"My work concerns adults, age 25 to 75, who struggle with non-bipolar depressions. Ten per cent or 19 million U.S. people suffer depression each year. Depression can stem from biological, event-driven, developmental, and interpersonal issues. Examples may include an entrapping event such as a war, a bad job, or a bad marriage. Trauma or shock, abuse, loss, divorce, aching grief, a serious medical event, including post-partum, a change of circumstance, or even a specific "time of life" can bring on dark depression. If you experience depression symptoms, please see your doctor and get therapy help."
"Do you want more out of your life but you are feeling stuck in old patterns? Does fear or feeling down stop you from enjoying life? Have you had a loss or a terrible experience and are "just not yourself"? I can help you. I use techniques for understanding the problem and finding the ways that can open you to new possibilities. By getting in touch with the desires of your heart, I can help you meaningfully navigate the ups and downs of life. I work collaboratively to cultivate what you most value for yourself, your relationships, your family, and your community."

"Has the frantic pace of modern life and multiple demands on your time and energy left you feeling stressed out and stretched to your limits, struggling with troubled relationships, anxiety, depression or illness? Therapy is a safe place where you can take the time you need and we can sort out painful experiences and difficult situations together, often bringing new insight and relief in only a few sessions. In my 20 years of experience I have helped couples generate intimacy and compassion and both young and old resolve long-standing issues to create a more satisfying life."
"I see us all having an amazing strength, resilience, and natural ability to heal ourselves. Sometimes though, the repairing that we so honorably perform for ourselves leaves us with habitual reactive patterns. Eventually, we start to realize that these patterns no longer serve us in a way that allows life to be as fulfilling as we wish it to be: instead of a source for healing, they become a source of disconnection from both ourselves and others."
"Sometimes we can become so overwhelmed by the various struggles of life, we start to feel lost - like we don't know ourselves, what we want, or which direction to go. I am a collaborative therapist that provides a safe, warm space away from the chaos to help you discover your own inherent potential. My strength is working with people who are dealing with severe anxiety, difficulty maintaining healthy or authentic relationships, life transitions, self-doubt/self-criticism, grief/loss, family of origin issues, challenges with intimacy and sexuality, and who are interested in personal growth and identity development."

Marriage & Family Therapist Intern, MA, MFTI
"My approach to counseling begins with the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit. This holistic approach focuses on health and wholeness rather than pathology. I work with many couples to help create satisfying and lasting love relationships by identifying core patterns and resolving painful and habitual issues. I successfully help individuals struggling with anxiety and/or depression, life transitions, career changes, and relationship breakdowns. My approach focuses on deeper, underlying issues that create difficult experiences. I work in a gentle yet powerful way exploring issues using dreamwork, art therapy, psychodrama, movement, and sand tray therapy."
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW
"Life is complicated and difficult and while there are many things we cannot change, there are things we can do to improve the quality of our lives despite the challenges we face. Seeking help is a sign of strength and talking with a supportive person who is trained in working with mental and emotional health issues is the first step toward growth and change. I work collaboratively with clients to establish and achieve their treatment goals."
