I have been practicing
psychotherapy for the past 29 years. My office
is in Culver City at 9696 Culver Boulevard,
Suite 303, near Culver City Hall.
My practice includes short
and long term therapy with individual adults
and teens, couples, and families.
My approach is to create a safe and
confidential environment for clients to
explore whatever is bothering them in a
private setting. I work actively to help help
clients become more self aware and and strong.
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 decide and reach your goals. 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
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 haven’t 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.
