Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles, CA

About My Clients

If you are looking for a conversational, direct and warm style of therapy, you have found it. My clients come to therapy to sort through life transitions and relationship complications. Many are working through themes around disordered eating and trauma and some are learning to manage depression and anxiety.

My Background and Approach

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and have been working in the field of eating disorders since 2001. I have directed treatment at all levels of care and have been in private practice since 2009. I am a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist Supervisor (CEDS-S) and offer consultation towards certification. In addition to my work with people suffering from eating disorders, I am a trained EMDR clinician and utilize that approach in my work with people that want to heal from trauma, when appropriate. In addition to EMDR, I use evidence-based practices including Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness Practices.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that everyone can grow and improve their quality of life through therapy. I approach my life through the lens of anti-oppression and body positivity. I teach yoga when I'm not seeing clients and I believe that through the practice of yoga you can expand your tolerance for difficult feelings and situations that arise in life outside of the yoga studio.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
