A Bit About Therapy

I implement effective psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among patients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the patient and caretaker alike. But in the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results.

Accepting new clients in California in person and via secure telehealth

My primary goal as a relational psychotherapist is to provide my clients with insight and practical feedback to help address life’s current challenges and long-standing personal issues. With compassion and understanding, my work focuses on helping individuals find resolution for a wide range of intimate and psychological concerns.  

With a deeply respectful approach that includes psycho-education and humor, I guide individuals and couples through personal discovery and challenging transitions. To help facilitate this work, I draw from a variety of methodologies that incorporate what is most helpful for each individual. These include EMDR, EFT, Positive Psychology, Resilience Models, Psychodynamic, Attachment and Somatic Experiencing.

A Southern California native, I grew up in a large, extended Jewish family. After graduating from UCLA with a BA in Psychology, I attended USC and received an MBA that launched me into a rewarding career in marketing. During the past decade, I had the privilege of caring for my parents and being present during my Mom’s final years with Parkinson’s and dementia. This tender time reignited my desire to return to the study of psychology, earning my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology, specializing in Marriage & Family Therapy from Pepperdine University.

My husband and I share a culturally mixed blended family. We enjoy spending time with our family, all types of food, creating art, and travel.

I am a Marriage & Family Therapist with an approach that will:

  • Encourage you

  • Validate you   

  • Challenge you

  • Teach you      

  • Inspire you    

Call me. Let’s talk. If we’re not a fit, I will offer referrals.

EMDR Trained Therapist

I’m a relational therapist with training in attachment focused trauma and EMDR.  I use a holistic and collaborative approach to help my clients gain awareness and insight in order to cultivate change and deeper connection.  I work with individuals, couples and families struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues and life transitions.  I offer a warm, empathic, and non-judgmental place, so that we can work together to process painful and traumatic emotions, navigate life-stressors, gain new insights, and take practical steps toward healthy self-acceptance. 

As an immigrant who moved to California at the age of 12, I come from a place of cultural curiosity and understanding that I believe supports my clients in seeing and accepting their unique experiences.  Together we will explore the cultural and familial stories that result in the challenging emotions, behaviors and thought patterns, and barriers that have interfered with growth, self-trust and intuition.  My goal is to meet you where you are at, and walk with you on your journey of healing, growth, and creativity leading to living an authentic and meaningful life. 

I live in Los Angeles with my husband and our two teenage sons. I worked in the music industry creating video content for artists and musicians for many years, before returning to school to receive my Masters in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University.  I also have a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from CSUN.
