About Me

I received my Master's in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University Los Angeles. I received a certificate in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy from LAISPS and I completed training in child, 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, relationship issues and life transitions. 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 feelings into. From there, I reflect and pay close attention to the thoughts and feelings, make some interpretations and help individuals build awareness of their unconscious processes that may show up through projections, dreams or experiences in the body.

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.
