Change happens when we let it.
Emotions and feelings can be bottled up...
No breathing room... Nowhere to go...
As time moves on, the desire and need to grow and spread our wings evolves within ourselves
to endless opportunities...
Therapy is a challenging process. If you are reading this page your curiosity and possibility of a therapeutic process is within arms reach. Therapy can be a daunting process with its challenges and commitments. Individuals have a belief-system that is their own and unique to whom they are. Changing a belief system is not easy nor is it expected. However, having the opportunity to understand one’s belief system, life experience and choices an individual makes can strengthen an understanding of “who you are.” Understanding “self” is a critical component in making change and working towards creating a satisfying relationship with yourself and others in your life.
Starting therapy is challenging. We truly believe that the only obstacle to overcoming challenges in life is a commitment to yourself to reach your goals, no matter how difficult or distant they might be. You may come to me with a very serious challenge that takes time to address or your challenge may be resolved in only a few sessions. Together, we will determine which path is best for you and work towards achieving your goals.
“We shall not cease from explorationAnd the end of all our exploringWill be to arrive where we startedAnd know the place for the first time.”
~T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets
I warmly invite you to share in the amazing possibilities that psychotherapy has to offer.
Psychotherapy can teach you tools to live a richer, more rewarding life. It can provide a space to work through hurts, regrets, missed opportunities, and toward future goals. It can provide a space to grieve, heal, express, and learn.
Psychotherapy can be instrumental in recovery from challenges of mind and heart including: depression, anxiety, fear, mood swings, stress, low self-esteem, and life transitions. It can help you heal from victimization, violence, and trauma. It can make heartbreak understandable, tolerable and even growth-producing. It can provide the foundation for creating new healthier relationships based on respect, trust, healthy compromise, and compassion. It can take an ordinary life and make it extraordinarily rich and purposeful.
Our sessions will provide you with a safe haven. A space to be, share, learn and grow. A space to make mistakes without judgment or criticism. And when we both agree you are ready, a space to be challenged, nudged, and guided closer to your own defined goals. A Space to Thrive!

I have worked as a licensed Marriage Family Therapist in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and San Diego. I am experienced in numerous orientations including Family Systems, Mindfulness and Yoga Based Therapy, Brief Term Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I work with Teens, Adults, Couples, and Groups. Whatever your gender, orientation, culture, and/or race, it will be embraced. For me, the relationship, our relationship is the most important aspect of our work together.
Take good care,
