About My Clients
In our work together, we will look at your thoughts, feelings, relationships, needs, aspirations, experiences, dreams, and at all the things you bring with you to therapy. All of this helps me see you, which helps you see you, too. I am a good match for creative people, and for people who want to do the work of uncovering, recovering, and discovering. This is a queer-affirming and trans-affirming practice, welcoming LGBTQAI clients, and their families and loved ones.
My Background and Approach
I obtained a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Southern California, and subsequently completed a certificate in Psychodynamic Therapy at the Newport Psychoanalytic Institute. My career has allowed me to gain experience in diverse settings including a hospital, an outpatient mental health clinic, a residential facility for children in foster care, a public elementary school, a Hollywood shelter for youth experiencing homelessness, and people’s living spaces throughout Los Angeles County. Occasionally, I have worked in unexpected places—the freeway, a coffee shop, an art gallery, a fire escape. My current psychotherapy practice combines strengths-based, trauma-informed, insight-oriented, psychodynamic, and relational approaches.
