Clinical Psychologist in Encino, CA
I love looking deeply at human connections and I am drawn to understanding, uncovering and exploring our earliest connections on earth - our attachments to our parents and other loved ones. These early attachment create templates we use in all relationships moving forward and sometimes we need to do some healing on our templates in order for us to love and be loved to the best of our abilities.
I have worked passionately throughout my professional career to help individuals heal from their eating disorders. I have extensive training in this area and have worked in the eating disorder field for over ten years.
I have worked passionately throughout my professional career to help individuals heal from their eating disorders. I have extensive training in this area and have worked in the eating disorder field for over ten years, most notably as a Primary Therapist at the Monte Nido Treatment Center. I work collaboratively with patients' dietitians, physicians and psychiatrists to provide the most comprehensive treatment possible.
When you are facing struggles getting pregnant, staying pregnant or managing the transition to early motherhood, you can absolutely benefit from the support of a therapist specialized in treating maternal mental health. As a new mother myself, I am extremely passionate about helping fellow moms (and dads) throughout the entire process. I hold a Certificate in Perinatal Mood Disorders from Postpartum Support International and stay up to date on the latest research and treatment recommendations.
I believe that looking deeply within and understanding where we come from helps us find the path forward to our healthiest selves. Psychodynamic/psychoanalytic psychotherapy is the theoretical orientation that helps me assist patients most effectively. I completed four years of training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy at the Wright Institute Los Angeles and the New Center for Psychoanalysis. These trainings culminated in obtaining two Certificates in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.
