I’m a licensed psychotherapist in Santa Monica who sees individuals and couples. I hold a weekly group workshop where men and woman meet to heal trauma and childhood wounds. I teach anger management classes to others in the mental health field across the country.
When I started my practice thirty-five years ago, therapy was more about diagnosis than treatment. Today, there are hundreds of treatment modalities available. My experience has shown me that the best and fastest results come from an integrative therapy technique that engages both your mind and your body in a warm, safe, and judgment-free environment.

My approach to therapy is interactive and integrative. I believe the storyteller is sometimes more interesting than the story.
My approach goes beyond straightforward talk therapy because I believe the storyteller is sometimes more interesting than the story. Instead of just going over and over the story of your life and never delving deeper, we’ll track the body to see what feelings, impulses, memories, and images exist under the words. My practice is strongly informed by mindfulness and body interventions that ground you in the present moment and encourage you to pay attention to your bodily sensations, feelings, and beliefs to speed up the important process of healing and self-discovery and will help you overcome therapeutic barriers and regain your life energy. Results can be transformative.
Studies have shown that the single most important factor in predicting successful treatment outcomes is the relationship between therapist and patient. Whether you seek a marriage and family therapist, couples counseling, individual therapy, trauma therapy or anger management classes, I promise to provide a safe, collaborative, warm, and non-judgmental environment for you to express yourself and feel understood. Together we will examine your inner emotional resources, search for unhealed emotional wounds, and expose long-held beliefs that limit your potential.
