Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Do you ever feel like others don’t understand what you’re going through? Have others responded to your attempt at being heard by letting you know why you shouldn’t think or feel that way? If so, you probably know, as I do, that this is extremely unhelpful. That’s why my primary goal as a therapist is to listen and understand with you, in an attempt to make sense of whatever’s going on. Regardless of the client’s reason for seeking therapy, my approach is grounded in empathy and acceptance. I aim to foster a collaborative learning process in which the autonomy and self-direction of the client is paramount. I believe in nurturing each client’s inherent potential for self-growth. In addition to private practice, I have worked with individuals in recovery from drugs and alcohol at Manifest Recovery Centers and Tarzana Treatment Centers. I also specialize in trauma and depression.

Many of my clients struggle with anxiety issues including racing thoughts, social anxiety and panic attacks. I also support individuals who have experienced traumatic events and are struggling with distressing and intrusive memories.
