Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Beverly Hills, CA

About My Clients

My clients are motivated to identify and discover self honoring choices. Learn how to identify and make self honoring choices. My clients recognize they give too much and often deny important needs, but don't know how to begin calling their life energy back. I work with couples using the Gottman Method, helping couples who argue too much learn how to take the blaming out of their communication and express positive needs in a collaborative environment.

My Background and Approach

I have had training in Internal Family Systems, TEAM CBT from the Feeling Good Institute Level 2, and am Gottman informed for couples. Leader for Gottman course, "The Seven Principles For Making A Marriage Work. I show people how to calm their nervous system and stay connected to themselves and their experience while interacting with another. Using a unique, straight forward and step by step process, I help you get connected to you -- so you can make self honoring choices in a non blaming way. I help you identify your goals for treatment and offer you various pathways to get there-based on what works for you! Maybe that means practicing communication skills in session—or maybe it means working to increase self esteem, reduce stress, or remove your blocks to being vulnerable. Call for a 15 minute complementary consult and see if we might be a good fit for each other.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that humans are multi-dimensional beings who can create healing on all levels. I believe we experience unpleasant emotions as a result of our needs not being met. Sometimes it's because we are not connected to what we feel or what we need. Sometimes it's because we have learned patterns of sacrifice and avoidance... In any case, learning how to care enough about yourself to heal the gaps in your relationship with yourself is vital for healthy, adult functioning in your relationships.
