“Its not a woman’s job to get smaller & smaller until she disappears so the world can be more comfortable.”

THERAPY FOR ANXIOUS WOMEN
I work with overly analytical women in their 20s and 30s by helping them understand their feelings as useful information rather than an inconvenience or something to avoid.
THERAPY FOR ANXIOUS TEENS
Growing up in Los Angeles have specific challenges that unfortunately have become the norm. I help teens by listening carefully to help them find their own voice until they can use it themselves.
I support parents by helping them understand their child’s mind and developmental stage. This can help open up communication between you and your child.
My motto for therapy is:
Work in the present, understand your past, change your future.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist (PSY29612) in private practice in Los Angeles. I have a warm and genuine approach to treatment. Here is what I believe: people unlock their full potential when they know who they are and what they want. For this reason, I am passionate about helping people understand themselves so they can achieve more and live a more meaningful, enriching life. When appropriate, I integrate aspects of attachment-focused EMDR into my treatment to help treat both big and small traumas. Additionally, I work from a culturally sensitive, LGBTQ+ allied perspective, aiming to create a safe space for people seeking treatment.
I specialize in working with women and girls who struggle with:
