Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Beverly Hills, CA

Have you experienced a significant trauma such as death of a loved one, loss of a relationship, loss of a job, a medical diagnosis such as cancer? Do you feel stuck moving forward? I can sit with you through your pain and support you in the healing process. I have worked through numerous of my own traumas and bring this knowledge to our sessions. My hope is that you will feel heard, understood and seen, while moving forward at your own pace.
Do you have communication and relational issues with your partner? Infidelity? Parenting concerns? I can help. I often see under the surface and will actively engage with you during our sessions, listening and providing interpretation, reflection and feedback on what I hear and see. By becoming aware, one can change. I can help partners talk to each other and hopefully understand each other. I can help rebuild trust, repair breaches and provide tools to prevent fights from escalating.
My goal is to provide a safe space while actively engaging with you during our sessions, listening and providing interpretation, reflection and feedback, as well as helping identify patterns and processes that tend to play out or repeat themselves.
I believe exploring family of origin is important in terms of how old patterns and behaviors play out in the present.
Do you feel as if you need to make everyone else happy, that the needs of others come before yours? I can help you gain a sense of self, understanding your needs and wants, and taking action. Growth takes time and I can assist you on this journey. In addition to my therapy education and training, I am a long-standing member of Alanon
Did you grow up with parent(s) who were narcissist, controlling, alcohol abusers, not supportive or neglectful? Early childhood experiences can shape how we think and behave as adults, often in ways that are not helpful, such as: finding toxic partners, over-thinking, difficulty with decisions and knowing what we want, low self esteem, people pleasing (saying yes when we want to say no), poor boundaries and over-focusing on others. The good news is that change is possible.
