I have extensive experience working with individuals and couples struggling with trauma and it's effects, as
well as the problems of
adult life including: mood disorders, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, bereavement, time management and stress related issues. I am a certified Somatic Experiencing and EMDR practitioner and utilize both to work with the symptoms and healing of trauma. Psychotherapy modalities include individual, couples and group psychotherapy. I maintains a part-time practice in Encino and West Los Angeles, California (818-674-2502), as well as Somerset, Pennsylvania (814-443-2547).
My work is rooted in deep respect for the dignity of each being. There is an inter-relationship between the body, mind and spirit and I trust the power of each person to heal. Although we don't choose the
trauma's that are brought our way, we do get to choose how to to cope with them in a healthy, healing way. Together, we will eplore those choices and find resources that strengthen you and help you to have a
more enriched life. Using an eclectic approach, with an emphasis on cognitive-behavioral, I consider each individual's unique background, current situation, needs and values.
I am "straight forward" and will work collaboratively with you to meet your needs and goals. I believe that a multi-dimensional, team approach is important. I refer to other professionals for a variety of issues to support you on your healing journey.
It is your right to find peace.
