LMFT, MFA painter
Accepting Clients

I am a narrative couples counselor and individual therapist, bringing creative collaboration and caring for empowered change.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles, CA

About My Clients

My couples and individual clients have many varied backgrounds, professions, and world views. I consider my clients to be the experts on their own experiences as they teach me about their unique histories, cultures, orientations, and preferences. As a fine artist, I often work with creative clients such as artists, writers, directors, musicians, and actors. I look forward to learning about you and your own lived experiences.

My Background and Approach

I believe people are multistoried. I hold an MFA as a painter and an MA in psychology, and as the co-founder of the Narrative Counseling Center, I focus on narrative therapy. My years of artmaking inform the creativity I bring to my work with clients. I am also passionate about teaching and a professor at Antioch University, with courses such as Postmodern Psychotherapies, Critical Psychology, Couples Counseling, Brief Therapy, and the Psychology of Couples in Fiction and Film. I am very curious and love to learn, with a particular appreciation for nature, social justice, and out-of-the-box ideas.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I feel strongly connected to the world and other people and see things in relationships. I firmly believe in the power of collaborative action and engaging the possibility of large and small change.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
