About My Clients

I am a licensed psychotherapist working with individuals, couples, children, teens and families, and I have been in private practice in California since 1986 in West Los Angeles. With over 20 years experience as a marriage, child and family therapist, and as a graduate of Nova University, I am currently serving as a private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients.

My Background and Approach

My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each one of my clients. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help you build on your strengths and attain the personal growth that you are committed to accomplishing. I am solution focused, but I also would like to spend some time over the first few weeks getting to know and understand your background. I feel it is important to understand how we got to where we are today so that we can use that knowledge to plan on where we want to go tomorrow. Understanding the human plight, and how it has effected us personally, gives each one of us knowledge. Knowledge is what empowers us to make the changes that will take us down the road we want to travel, rather than repeating the same patterns over and over that haven’t been working for us. We have all been greatly imprinted upon by our parents and the generations before us. Therapy is not about blaming, but rather about understanding and learning to gain an awareness.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have worked with people of all age ranges starting at age 5 and continuing through the senior years. I have worked intensely on issues concerning marital/couple relationship conflict, family difficulties, teen and young children who are suffering from everything from behavior management issues, to drugs/alcohol abuse, bullying, depression, anxiety, social isolation and loneliness, eating and weight problems, low self esteem, divorce effects, sibling rivalry, bedtime and other sleep issues, etc... I have also worked with adults who are having difficulty in their personal or work relationships, feeling stuck in their careers, or lack of career, having difficulty finding the right relationship, are involved in a substance abuse issue, have gender or sexuality issues, anger management problems, grief and loss experiences, along with other self esteem, communication, parenting concerns, or general depression and anxiety
