• About Me

    My approach to therapy is holistic, meaning I take into account your culture, family history, race/ethnicity, faith, sexual orientation, etc., and tailor treatments to your individual needs. I’ll work with you in a collaborative and interactive way, providing feedback and helping you to gain insight, practical solutions, and new perspectives. With warmth (and sometimes a little sense of humor), I’ll support yet challenge you – you’ve decided to come to therapy to change something(s) in your life so let’s move you in the direction you seek.

    Extended Biography :

    I'm a psychotherapist practicing in Westwood, Los Angeles and am also a faculty member in the social work graduate program at California State University, Fullerton, training future therapists and social workers. Since obtaining my master of social work from Columbia University almost 15 years ago, I have had the privilege of counseling adults and teens of varying ethnicities and backgrounds and with diverse needs. Prior to starting my private practice, I worked in schools and hospitals in New York City, providing mental health services.
