I am a psychotherapist and doctoral candidate in Los Angeles specializing in depth psychology. Although my theoretical orientation is largely psychodynamic, emphasizing emotional experience as key to personality functioning, I use an integrative approach with clients, incorporating Jungian and analytical psychology, cognitive behavior therapy, and mind-body techniques to address the individual needs of each client.
Currently completing my PhD in Clinical Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute, supervised by Dr. Eshawn Williams, and having completed an MA in Spiritual Psychology at University of Santa Monica, the focus of my clinical experience has been in community mental health, dual diagnosis treatment centers, and psychiatric hospital working with children, adults and families. Areas of interest and specialty include trauma and abuse, addictions and chemical dependency, depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, life and career transitions.
My personal philosophy it is through human connection that one can foster the encouragement needed to take courageous steps toward seeing an old pattern through a new perspective, and creating positive change. In my work with clients, I utilize a strengths-based approach, empowering individuals to focus on their strengths, in order to discover new and more useful patterns of behavior. Believing in the inherent wisdom of the individual, therapy thus serves as a road map, illuminating the path so the client can make conscious choices. My attitude of respect for the shared humanity and acceptance of each client’s self-image and world-view allows for the creation of a safe, therapeutic container in each session.
I offer in-person and phone sessions. Please contact me at email@example.com if interested in a free consultation.
