Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. I'm a licensed psychotherapist who has been in the field over eleven years. I have a master's degree (MA) in clinical counseling as well as a doctoral degree (PhD) in depth psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute.
I trained at the prestigious Maple Counseling Center of Beverly Hills where I worked with individual clients, couples, young adults, and co-facilitated an interpersonal therapy group. In my second year I was asked to be a peer supervisor where I trained and supervised new therapist interns.I then spent three years providing supervision and training to teenage hotline listeners through Cedars Sinai's TEEN LINE crisis center. In my personal life I am a mother, wife, and small business owner.
I am a depth psychotherapist who works within a psychodynamic framework. What that means is I'm interested in getting to know all of you: your past, current issues, and future goals. I also am interested in exploring your inner world, the unconscious motivations of actions and choices. My style of therapy is traditional "talk therapy" where we work together to understand and improve your thoughts and feelings. I focus on creating a safe environment where we can work together to find solutions. I like to be practical and find ways we can apply what we discover to your life so you can see the changes and improvements you seek.
