Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Beverly Hills, CA

I will work with you to understand the origins of your anger and understand the part of you that feels these intense feelings. I will offer a place to be heard. We will work together to recognize how to better cope with big feelings when they happen in the moment and heal the part that gets you there.
In healing from sexual abuse or assault we start by creating safety. Safety in your relationship with me, safety in your world, and safety with your body. I support you in connecting with your body and honoring your body’s signals. We will work together to build a healthy sex life that prioritizes your health, safety, and desires.
When appropriate, I will provide skills-based interventions grounded in DBT to support you in managing life stressors. DBT will support you in managing intense, painful emotions, suicidal ideation, and relationship strife. I have significant experience with this behavioral work.
I work with you to understand the underpinnings of your anxiety and improve coping skills. Healing includes recognizing your patterns and asking "What function is this anxiety serving?". With this insight we will work towards establishing healthy behaviors that bring your peace.
I have been fully trained in EMDR and provide this service to heal from traumatic experiences. Whether you are suffering from PTSD or find yourself struggling to get past painful life events, this technique will allow you to move forward, reduce symptoms, and create a healthier life.
