• About Me

    I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who provides psychotherapy in Santa Monica. I work with adults, adolescents, couples and families, presenting with a range of symptoms. The fact that you have made it here likely means you are looking to get the help you need and make the necessary changes to experience a full life. Life is difficult and to be human is to struggle. Long gone are the days when attending therapy was viewed as “weak”. Increasing your support system and seeing the world through a new lens can be relieving and comforting. Beginning the course towards self-actualization is courageous work.
