About My Practice

Office Hours
7 days a week
Services
As a Certified Aging Life Care Manager™ (Geriatric Care Manager) and Licensed Marriage & Family Psychotherapist, I have over 23 years in working with individuals and families facing life altering decisions. My specialty is working with those who have a loved one with a chronic illness (neurological disorders affecting aging, mental illness, physical & developmental disabilities) who need guidance locating the best course of action to keep their loved one safe and secure for the rest of their life. I help families navigate these unchartered waters of home care, placement options, medical, legal, and financial needs along with end of life care wishes. Caregiver and family counseling is an integral part of my work teaching coping strategies and self-care to prevent caregiver burnout. My office is centrally located in West Los Angeles, however, my services can be conducted in the patient’s home or residential community. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or referrals.
