I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) specializing in individual, couples and family therapy, specializing in relationship problems, anxiety, depression, eating disorders and other behavioral issues. I see clients and run several groups in my private practice in Palos Verdes Estates, in the Malaga Cove area. This serene and private location is easy to get to from Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach as well as Torrance, San Pedro and Long Beach.
With over 12 years of experience as a therapist in several mental health clinics and in eating disorder treatment centers, and as a graduate of Antioch University specializing in psychodynamic, solution-focused and cognitive behavioral therapy, I am currently working with a broad spectrum of clients.
My style is highly interactive, direct and solution-focused. My therapeutic approach is to provide empathy, support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. My goal is to integrate complementary modalities to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to uncover the deeper issues, to build on strengths and to provide new tools and the skills needed to improve their relationships and quality of life.
