Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Hermosa Beach, CA

About My Clients

Feel overwhelmed by past traumas, negative thoughts, and stress that just won't go away? EMDR therapy can help. This innovative treatment can help process and resolve difficult experiences, so you can move forward with confidence and peace of mind. Say goodbye to anxiety, depression, and emotional distress, and start living the life you deserve. With EMDR therapy, experience significant reductions in stress, anxiety, and depression, and a newfound sense of peace and well-being.

My Background and Approach

Life can sometimes be difficult, and I believe each person has the innate ability to heal, grow, and transcend through their challenges. I help individuals and couples to become aware of patterns that contribute to their pain, develop effective regulation skills, and find ease in their lives. I interweave scientifically-based techniques like Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Internal Family Systems (IFS) to accelerate healing. I also practice Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Gottman Method when treating couples. Warm and compassionate, I am a deep listener. I am also grounded and practical, so we can remain focused on resolving the issues that brought you into therapy in the first place.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I unexpectedly entered this field after a transformative experience with my psychoanalyst, whom I started seeing when I experienced feeling stuck in my career. In my own journey, earning an Ivy League degree and working for Fortune 500 companies taught me in the accomplishment of my highest professional goals, a sense of meaning and joy is derived from a relationship with myself, my partner, and my community. As a former corporate marketing and business professional, I achieved success, and yet, felt empty and unfulfilled inside. Through my work with my therapist, I found freedom. Now, I work with others to help them break through destructive cycles and find ease in their lives. I received my Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University and hold a Bachelor of Science in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania as well as an MBA from Harvard Business School.
