About me

Welcome. You have taken the first step in healing by simply Showing Up and I would be honored to guide you in your healing.

My philosophy is rooted in five foundational aspects. The first is Compassionate Curiosity, question everything. The second is Angeles Arrien’s, “The Four-Fold Way” - Show Up, Pay Attention, Tell the Truth (without judgement), and Don’t Be Attached to the Results. The third is Mindfulness and Beginner’s Mind, particularly in observing and questioning our automatic thoughts and beliefs. The fourth is, each of us is on our own journey, and it is not my place to, nor could I, dictate yours. And the fifth is, Acceptance over Resistance.

Regardless of a your “presenting problem”, I generally come from an attachment perspective. I am fully trained in three trauma treatment modalities; Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Brain Spotting (BSP), and the Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM). In addition, I have a lot of training in Internal Family Systems (IFS), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). While I am trained in these modalities, I do not use any of them independently. Rather, I use them in combination...along with my own additions and modifications.
I began my career in 2000 working in a residential treatment center for eating disorders. In 2002, I received my Master's in Clinical Psychology at Antioch University in Los Angeles. I've spent the majority of my career working in residential and day treatment programs and I have a private practice in Woodland Hills, California.
My specialties are eating disorders, trauma, couples and all of the aspects within each (depression, anxiety, relationship issues, etc.)

I very much look forward to meeting you.

Sherry has helped me overcome a traumatic experience which I had this year through EMDR therapy. I am so grateful that I feel much lighter and I am ready for the next step in my life. Thank you Sherry!
