When human beings experience trauma or severe life stressors, it not uncommon for their lives to unravel. My great passion is bringing healing to people who have been through a traumatic/stressful experience. I help my clients who include young adults , couples and families, to find healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships so they can know themselves as peaceful, complete, whole and safe. Moreover, I have been practicing psychotherapy since 2014.
My approach to therapy is one of deep empathy and exploration. Life is challenging and can bring you overwhelming feelings of anxiety or depression. In utilizing mainly psychodynamic approach to therapy, I will work with you to understand and process experiences that are causing you pain and suffering. Through our work together, you will gain a deeper understanding of yourself, which will ultimately lead to a more fulfilling and gratifying life.
Also, I know that no single approach is the right one for very individual, and so I have been trained in range of other modalities including Motivational Interviewing, Person-centered, Relational, Attachment, Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioral Therapies, and Trauma Focused Therapies.
My educational background includes a Master of Arts degree MA in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University, Los Angeles. Also, I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from the California State University, Los Angeles.
Additional areas of focus: Family conflicts, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Eating disorders, Anger management, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, Compassion fatigue, Paranoia, Personality Disorders, Sexual Assault and Abuse
Clinical approaches: Attachment-Based Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing, Psychodynamic Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy

Harry has been a great help. He is supportive and challenging at the right times. He helps me reflect and grow at a pace that feels healthy and sustainable. I feel heard without judgment, yet encouraged to move towards my best self. It is so valuable to have this space to unpack and examine the parts of my self that otherwise get stowed away in the business of getting through the day. I'm grateful.

Harry is outstanding. I was unsure of therapy before but gave BetterHelp a try. With Harry's help, I am able to confront parts of myself and really work on me. He has helped me progress and gives me tools to work through life. Harry gives feedback and helps to sharpen those tools every time we meet. I appreciate all he has done for me and look forward to more sessions with him.
