Practice Description:
I am currently offering phone and video telehealth sessions.

I provide a supportive, nonjudgmental therapeutic environment for you to talk about your concerns, whether you are an adult, high school teen, or couple. My goal as a psychotherapist is to help you live a more fulfilled life, whether you are seeking short-term treatment to regain your sense of well-being or more long-term work to help you gain insight and/or to make changes in your life.

I particularly enjoy working with adults, both women and men, and helping couples. I help adults express and work through feelings, gain insight and self-awareness, and identify ways to move past barriers that prevent them from living a happy life. Clients learn ways to reduce their anxiety and depression, and improve their mood and relationships. And therapy helps clients become aware of their beliefs and the behavioral patterns that they continue to repeat but which no longer work for them. Through their commitment to their relationship and their participation in therapy, couples can improve their communication, resolve conflict, and improve intimacy.

For 20 years, I have been providing psychotherapy and counseling to high school teens and their parents. In therapy, teens develop more self-awareness, self-esteem and learn new skills to help them move through the difficult transition from childhood, through adolescence to adulthood. I help parents understand their child's mental health and developmental issues and assist them in finding ways to parent with age-appropriate parenting interventions.

If you would like more information about therapy with me, you can explore my website at or call me at (818) 515-6203. I welcome your contact.
