Therapy for self-improvement and increased self-awareness
I specialize in helping people who are going through difficult life phases and major transitions that are causing anxiety, depression, general dissatisfaction with life, or relationship conflict.
Are you having difficulty adjusting to the end of a relationship or working through problems in your partnership? Have you suffered a loss from which you are struggling to recover? Feeling anxious about college, a new job, or a new role in your life? I am here to help you cope with the current challenges you face, increase your self-knowledge, improve your overall functioning, and increase life satisfaction.
I am flexible in using an approach suited to the individual client, whether that is mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, or relational therapy. I provide long-term psychodynamic treatment, short-term therapy, and single sessions for consultation and assistance in problem solving on a particular issue.
I also work with people who are seeking therapy for self-actualization in that they are working to reach their potential, whether that is a higher level of functioning, a greater sense of purpose, or a deeper enjoyment of life.
Call 626-429-9261 for a free phone consultation to ask any questions that you might have or to discuss whether I can assist you with your particular problem, concerns, or goals.

||My fee is $200 per 50 minute session. I also have a sliding scale for those who cannot afford my full fee. Please inquire about the rate you might qualify for, if you cannot afford to pay the full fee. Note: The sliding scale fee is based on a client's personal financial situation, the mode of treatment requested, frequency of attendance, whether the client is using insurance for partial reimbursement, and availability of sliding scale spots.
|Insurance and Billing Instructions:
||I provide monthly statements for clients who have PPOs and are able to see "out of network" clinicians. Clients then submit the statements to their insurance provider for partial reimbursement (amount depending on their plan). If you plan to use your PPO, check with your insurance provider ahead of time to verify that they will allow you to see an "out of network" clinician and the percentage of your reimbursement.
I also work with individuals who have been granted Victims of Crime Compensation.
||There is typically free parking on Green Street in front of the office. On the rare occasion that the street parking is unavailable, there is a lot next to the office that is $1.50/hr.
