"Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself." - George Bernard Shaw
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles, CA
I enjoy working with many different kinds of relationships and couples. I have experience working with issues such as infidelity, illness, blended families, navigating open relationships, new engagements, cohabitation, and interracial. I look forward to getting to know your relationship and what goals are important to it. We can strengthen communication skills and hearing everyone's concerns in a safe, non-judgmental space.
Depression can sometimes feel like a thick cloud of sadness and hopelessness weighing us down. Stress from relationships, dating, work, school, family can feel like chains tying us down. And sometimes we are our own worst critic, telling ourselves we're not worthy or no good. I have extensive experience working with depression, suicidal thoughts, and suicidal crisis. Together, we can manage your safety and define concrete paths to steer through the dense fog.
I incorporate Mindfulness practices into my work with Anxiety. This includes meditation, grounding exercises, yoga nidra, and breathing exercises. The benefits of practicing these Mindfulness techniques may ease anxiety, lessen stress, and promote better sleep. I have studied Mindfulness and Zen Buddhism in Kyoto, Japan during my graduate program at Antioch University.
