Anxiety & Depression

Many of us exhaust ourselves spending vast time and energy trying to anticipate and control the future or find ourselves plunged in regret, shame, and guilt.  


Humans are relational beings, and our ability to connect with others consciously and unconsciously drives every element of our life.  If we are unable to get our relationships in order--whether it be friends, family, or romantic-- everything else feels out of place.  I help both individuals and couples get back to where they want to be. 


There are many types of trauma; all of them impact the way we see ourselves and the world.  Many of us aren't able to recognize how verbal and non-verbal communications from our early lives continue to impact us.  I specialize in helping people recover from these traumas as well as from more intensive, major traumas like sexual, emotional, and physical abuse.  I am certified in evidence-based treatments: EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and TF-CBT (Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy).


Addictions come in many forms; all of them are related to difficulty handling challenging life circumstances and painful emotions.  I can help you identify the source of addictive processes and learn new skills and methods to address destructive patterns.  


Los Angeles is the home of many creative industries where people make their living through their ability to generate ideas, images, and stories.  If you feel like your creativity is stunted, I can help you get unstuck.
