Among the topics we can address in the therapy room:
-health (emotional, mental, physical)
-substance use and abuse
-work, work/life balance
My own life experiences have helped prepare me to be a dynamic and compassionate therapist able to help clients navigate issues of trauma, grief, anxiety, and create and maintain balance. I allow what comes up to guide how we will work together—which might mean we look at and process the past or stay in the here-and-now, a combination of both, or something else entirely.
I’m especially sensitive to those people and communities who have felt traditionally pathologized by the psychology/mental health community. Above all, I am committed to creating a safe, grounding, compassionate space for clients to be themselves, know themselves and their truths, and expand on their own strengths and capabilities.
Among the many populations I serve are artists, writers, and those who wish to claim those identifiers; women of all colors; individuals or couples in alternative relationships; queer and/or gender non-conforming people; heterosexual and LGBTQI people.
I offer a free 10 minute phone consultation prior to working with you.
Sessions are 50 minutes long and take place in a lovely office in Culver City.
I have a standard rate but do reserve some sliding-scale appointments. The fee will be collected by cash or check at the beginning of each therapy session. I do not accept insurance plans directly, though if you have a PPO plan, I can be seen as an out-of-network provider. In this case, I can provide you with a receipt to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
