Santa Monica Psychologist

The mental anguish from COVID-19 is very real. Our current crisis is unprecedented and I would like to be of service as much as possible. You might be struggling with increased anxiety, depression, sleep disturbances, PTSD, substance abuse issues due to struggles coping, suicidal ideation, and panic attacks. The isolation, fear, grief, and hopelessness you might be experiencing is very difficult to manage. You do not have to be alone with it!

We are offering free phone consultations, community outreach and education. For therapy clients we use a HIPPA compliant platform for video sessions.

Specializing in Adolescent, Adult and Older Adult Emotional Well-Being

It takes a great deal of courage to ask for help. It requires facing one’s problems head on and it can stir up feelings of shame and vulnerability. You may experience difficulty with trusting someone to accompany you on this journey; but also trusting that positive change is possible. It is important to find someone you can connect with to start your healing and growth.

Step One – Finding The Right Therapist

I am licensed by the California Board of Psychology as a Clinical Psychologist and work in private practice as well as UCLA. My practice is located in Santa Monica.

In my work with clients, I strive to create a safe and compassionate environment. Through mutual collaboration we will get to know you, your relationships, and how to create lasting and meaningful change in your life. Positive change through therapy can provide you with improved health, greater self-confidence, more compassion for yourself and others, improved relationships, a feeling of satisfaction and ease about life, and the ability to take risks and advance professionally.

In order to provide therapy to a larger group of clients, I have added associate therapists to my practice. To read more click on Associates.
