In my practice, I focus on helping people separate their preferences from their problems, identify values that are most important to them, and determine the actions that will best express those values. I work collaboratively with people to detail their future hopes and honor the histories that inform their current experiences and relationships. I use a combination of psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, solution focused and narrative approaches to help build insight as well as find solutions and ways of coping that feel practical and effective. "Therapeutic conversations help us navigate the limitations and dilemmas we all face. We each have ongoing stories about our lives, which are written by multiple authors: ourselves, our families, community, culture, and society. Some of these stories empower and embolden while others constrain and limit."
I am passionate about making therapy and support available to anyone that chooses to engage in an act of self care. Whether that is a 10 minute check in for an ear to listen or ongoing deeper foundational work to make the changes you desire.
In addition to my private practice, I am also the former Program Director and current Clinical Advisor at Center for Discovery in Woodland Hills, an eating disorder treatment center. I have years of training and experience working with adolescent and adult females and males to heal their relationship with food, body image, and exercise addiction.
