Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles, CA

About My Clients

Are you suffering from anxiety? Depression? Both? I look to provide useful tools in combatting your demons, as well as getting at, and exploring the "why am I the way that I am" question. Do you feel anxious when away from your smartphone? Does social media dominate your time? Do you have a teenager who you feel may be internet-addicted? I often focus on the new "wild west" of internet addiction in both teens and adults, and can provide tools that benefit both individuals and families.

My Background and Approach

I am a licensed Marriage and Family therapist, with a Masters Degree in Psychology from the California Graduate Institute of Psychology. Prior to entering the field of psychology I graduated from Boston University's School of Management, earning a BS/BA in Finance. I then worked in Finance for several years. I have also had a separate creative career as both a stage and film actor, and as a writer in Theatre and Film, working in both New York City and Los Angeles. I draw from a variety of psychodynamic principles, as well as behavioral theories utilizing CBT/DBT and Mindfulness techniques. I will be working to help you explore and process what is deeply affecting, undermining, or otherwise blocking you. I look to provide you with helpful tools that you can begin to use immediately in the "real world" of your life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

If you are feeling confused, anxious, or depressed in trying to navigate complex and stressful personal circumstances, I believe I can be helpful to you. I look to join you in identifying the issues and underlying values that are most important to you. Together we can look to create systems (better than goals) to help you in taking the little steps toward achieving what it is you feel you need and want most. Whether your goal is a different career path, to lose weight, or better a relationships, I look to be your guide, your comrade, exploring this journey in depth, while focusing on what matters. One of the constants of my differentiated past careers has been the pleasure of connecting and exploring lives very different from my own. My past career and personal experiences have deepened my own life, and collectively help me to help others navigate theirs.
