Counseling for children, teens, adults 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 supports in order to adapt and thrive in different environments. Sometimes, those supports may no longer serve us (or may even cause us harm), and sometimes, it does not serve us to adapt to a certain environment.
I practiced as a lawyer for years before changing careers. 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.
My approach to therapy is very conversational and collaborative, and grounded in the client-therapist relationship. 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 am authentic and transparent in session, and I enjoy incorporating humor into the therapeutic process.
I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults. I have experience navigating trauma, mood and anxiety disorders, 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.
