Counseling for children, teens, adults, couples, and families in
Los Angeles, CA
I am a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist providing counseling in person and by telehealth for children, teens, adults, couples, and families.
I believe that we have the capacity to create beautifully creative, complex adaptations to survive in different environments. Sometimes, those adaptations may no longer support our well-being (or may even cause us harm), and sometimes, it does not serve us to adapt to a certain environment. I provide a compassionate, judgment-free space as we work together to separate you from what you are struggling with, emphasize your strengths, and help you lead a life that is aligned with your values. I also understand the discomfort that can sometimes accompany growth, and collaborate on resources to support you during the process. I am authentic and transparent, and I enjoy incorporating humor into session.
Before becoming a therapist, I practiced law for years, and my experience in the legal industry makes me well aware of the social, cultural, and organizational barriers that can make it challenging to find time and space for relationships and support while working in a high-stress environment.
I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults. I have experience navigating trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, life transitions and stressors, family systems, communication, self-esteem, self-harm and more. I am a LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist.
I earned my B.A. in Cognitive Science from Johns Hopkins University, a M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy from Touro University, and a J.D. from Fordham University School of Law. I have received training in Trauma Sensitive Yoga from the Trauma Center at Justice Research Institute.
I'd love to hear from you, whether it's for a free consultation, a question, or wanting to connect.
Although I require a phone number, please put in the message if you prefer to be contacted by email.
