I have been practicing psychotherapy for the past 23 years. My office is in Culver City at 9696 Culver Boulevard, Suite 303, near Culver City Hall.
My work has been doing short and long term therapy with individuals, couples, families, and work associates. I also see children and adolescents. My approach is to create a safe and confidential environment for clients to explore whatever is bothering them in a private setting. I am warm and open to actively helping clients becoming more self aware and growing spiritually.
It is hard to make the step to come to see a therapist, even if you have tried before. I try to help clients feel comfortable, looking at their issues and goals in a way that makes sense and is respectful of the needs of each person.
I have no goal other than to help you reach your goals, or figure out what your goals are. Most people want to be happier, more fulfilled, more engaged in love, work and family. Together we can understand what is getting in your way so that you can change.
I offer EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) in addition to talk therapy, which is a helpful adjunct to get you “unstuck” from disabling negative beliefs, memories or phobias.
I also work with teaching clients to calm hyper-aroused stress states and learn to be in the body with more ease and peace.
I believe that a compassionate and safe therapy relationship can create an awareness of the self alone and the self in relation to others. To have helpful therapy, there must be an energetic, caring, intelligent therapist who is your partner in explaining your life problems and finding tools and motivation for change.
Most of us have experienced painful losses and hurts and havenít known how to regain trust in others or in life. Therapy is a way to overcome these painful experiences and to enjoy a rich, meaningful life.
