About My Clients

In private practice, I primarily see people who are living with anxiety, depression, gender dysphoria, HIV, bereavement, stress, loneliness, and other challenges. I work most successfully with people who seek to understand the internal and external conflicts underlying their present struggles—people who are willing to dig deep and work hard with me. I am committed to doing meaningful and valuable work collaboratively with each of my clients.

My Background and Approach

PLEASE NOTE: While we are limiting in person contact to delay the spread of COVID-19, I am providing psychotherapy using videoconferencing. -------------- 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.
