Practice Description: During my thirty-seven years as a therapist I’ve successfully treated clients for anxiety, depression, dysfunctional relationships and a variety of other issues that had prevented them from living full and happy lives. Often, these problems are caused by traumatic events from childhood. Other times they result from more recent events such as a divorce, job loss, serious medical diagnosis, or the death of a loved one.

My gentle, accepting nature and use of lighthearted humor provides a space in which clients feel safe to discuss painful experiences and serious problem. I’ve helped them recover from grief, let go of anger, and replace social anxiety with a sense of confidence and self-worth. I’ve guided couples in learning to share their experience rather than finding faults in their partner. Then, as they hear and appreciate their partner’s struggles, they begin to help each other heal, and grow together.

I bring a wide breath of experience into my work. As a graduate of Cal-Tech and the Harvard Business School I understand the challenges and stress of working in high-tech engineering and executive positions. As the head of a clinical training program for five years, I’ve trained many new therapists to listen with an open mind and use their own emotional reactions in understanding their clients and resolving the issues that brought them into therapy.

And I know the relationship developed between client and therapist has a major impact on a client’s ability to heal. I therefore invite you to a free Zoom meeting where you can decide if we are a good fit. Call me at 310 433-8379 to set up a meeting.
