About My Clients

I specialize in working with adults and older adults coping with cancer, chronic illness, medical trauma, grief, insomnia, caregiving and life transitions such as aging and survivorship. I am well versed in navigating the complex medical system and can help foster collaboration and communication with your medical treatment team. I am continuously researching and networking with local and national resources that can supplement your care.

My Background and Approach

After many years of working in hospitals, most recently as an inpatient social worker at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, I started my private practice so I could spend more meaningful time with clients. My experience in healthcare has provided me the privilege of helping a broad population of adults and older adults coping with a wide array of medical and mental health diagnoses. I am here to witness and support you in a safe and affirming therapeutic space where you can challenge yourself, learn and grow. I am collaborative in sessions and view our time together as a shared endeavor to help you achieve your goals. I tailor treatment to your individual needs using variety of approaches including strengths-based therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy and mindfulness. As a Certified Case Manager (CCM) I can help with important healthcare related documents such as disability applications and advance directives.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I value inclusivity and am an advocate for social justice. I welcome clients of all races, ethnicities, national origins, religions, abilities, sexual orientations and genders. I identify as culturally Jewish and appreciate a good bagel with lox. I am also a huge animal lover and my dog Milo will make appearances in our sessions upon request (although he may be napping).
