About Me

I received my Master's 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 training in adolescent and adult psychotherapy at the Center For Individual and Family Counseling and Valley Community Counseling Clinic. I also completed training and volunteering through the Didi Hirsch Suicide Prevention Center. 

I work with individuals and couples dealing with anxiety, depression, life transitions and relationship issues. I use tools from psychodynamic and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. I do this by creating a supportive, non-judgmental, agenda-free space that patients can safely bring their thoughts and feelings into. From there, I compassionately reflect and pay close attention to all that arises and help individuals build awareness of what they’re experiencing just beneath the surface. We do this in a variety of ways, including work with dreams, experiences in the body and relationship patterns. While we look to make changes that will last a lifetime, we’ll also look to improve how you feel on a day-to-day basis.

About the Practice

Life sometimes takes us through periods of great frustration and suffering.

To make it through these times, psychotherapy can help to: 

  • better understand emotional experiences
  • build a capacity to withstand and work through discomfort
  • give a voice to the parts of the self that are asking to be heard


Psychotherapy can bring about shifts that allow for greater self-expression and deeper fulfillment.

People come to psychotherapy for a number of reasons, and many find that it helps to:

  • Build greater self-esteem
  • Create a sense of purpose
  • Deepen self-awareness
  • Unlock creative expression
  • Move from feeling stuck to unstuck
  • Strengthen relationships with self and others
  • Decrease feelings of anxiety
  • Shift feelings of depression


Through attentive listening and emotional connection, I provide a non-judgmental environment where all facets of the self can emerge and be held. With training in psychodynamic psychotherapy, psychoanalytic psychotherapy, and mindfulness, I flexibly work with individuals and couples depending on their needs and goals from moment to moment.
