What to Expect
When you step into my office, you’ll be welcomed with understanding and will benefit from my experience in guiding clients to wholeness. You’ll have a framework to tackle the problems that confront your personal life or career, as an individual, a couple wanting to communicate, or as a parent, caregiver, or family. In therapy, we’ll take the steps that are right for you. That may mean discovering together past or present traumas, exploring your family of origin to understand its impact, and constructing steps for moving forward. Your body may also offer clues to how you respond to circumstances and I can show you how to become aware of those important messages. Signals that the brain sends clearly affect responses throughout your body. I’m located in Silverlake, just north and east of Los Angeles, a community filled with wonderful and creative people. I’ve spent much of my career in the entertainment world so I welcome clients from that industry and know first-hand the unique pressures they face.
Sit back and relax and let Therapy guide you to a more fulfilling life.
I’m available to help with a variety of personal and relational issues:
Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence.
Are you stuck repeating the same fights over and over? Would you like to go back in time when you were communicating effectively and easily? Let me help you and your partner communicate effectively. Let’s make sure you both are being heard.
As a caregiver, we sometimes give more than we can, we sometimes find ourselves so frustrated with all the tasks at hand, and forget to take care of ourselves. If we are not well, we will have nothing to give. I provide a non-judgmental space in which to find comfort, care and understanding.
Trauma can be defined as a psychological, emotional response to an event or an experience that is deeply distressing or disturbing. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) through the PARNELL INSTITUTE, specialized in Attachment focused (AF) EMDR. In addition I use TRM (Trauma Resiliency Model) as well as mindfulness.
