PSYCHOTHERAPY IN DOWNTOWN LA
I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist based in Downtown LA. I received my Master's degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University Los Angeles and a certificate in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy from the Los Angeles Institute and Society for Psychoanalytic Studies. I completed rigorous, psychoanalytically-oriented clinical training at the Valley Community Counseling Clinic, along with training at the Center For Individual and Family Counseling. I gained additional experience supporting individuals with suicidal ideation through training at Didi Hirsch Suicide Prevention Center.
When working with individuals and couples, I use a psychodynamic approach that helps improve day-to-day functioning and bring about changes that last a lifetime. The confidential and inquisitive nature of this work allows us to openly discuss, rework, and give meaning to past and present experiences, including problematic relationships and psychological patterns.
If this sounds like the way you'd like to work and you feel ready to set up an initial consultation, I can be reached at (213) 973-9878.

Taking back the reins of life.
Psychotherapy provides the opportunity to develop a greater sense of control over the complex, unknown and uncertain aspects of life by:
simplifying mental clutter
understanding emotional experiences
addressing unmet needs
helping to set boundaries
working through discomforts
learning when, and how, to let go
Getting more out of each day.
People come to psychotherapy for a number of reasons. Many find that this work helps to:
conquer daily fears
create a sense of purpose
lift feelings of depression
release feelings of guilt and shame
unlock creative expression
The fee per 50-minute session is $120.
When considering cost and schedule, please note that the focused nature of my work requires a minimum frequency of one 50-minute session per week.
With some individuals, as we deepen and intensify the treatment, session frequency may increase to two, three or four sessions per week.
