Therapy for individuals, couples and families. 

Every individual is unique. I approach my clients using tools can best facilitate their focus on what they want to have happen  in their life. My goal is for my clients to tap into their own depth and skill so they move forward in their life feeling validated, empowered, and healthy.

My specialties include:

  • Relationship Therapy: Having a connected and loving relationship empowers you and your partner in mutually supportive ways. But too often relationships hit a rough patch and need reaffirmation and readjustment to get back on track and to resume momentum and connection. As a trained Imago Therapist, I work to teach couples how to communicate so they support each other in clearing issues that derail their connection and create reactivity in their relationship. In addition, I consider relationships from a multidimensional perspective. Contact me to move your relationship to the next level of connection and happiness! 
     
  • Hypnosis or Hynotherapy: Did you know that everybody experiences hypnosis? Hypnosis is a natural, relaxing state of being that is very much a part of everyday life. Words and metaphors of daily life communicate to deep parts of the unconscious and hypnotically influence actions and reactions. When you use hypnosis with intention, you speed up your timeline in reaching personal or professional goals. If you want to deepen awareness, discard weight, alleviate pain, perform better on a test, connect and integrate the hemispheres of your brain, feel more confident, happier, and more aligned, consider using hypnosis to empower yourself. Hypnosis is also beneficial for healing faster when having surgery, or for anxiety. Call me to learn self-hypnosis so you use it daily to improve your life. Contact me for an appointment now. 
     
  • Therapy for Life Path Optimization: Feeling you are on the “right” path is a goal many of my clients talk about. It is a worthy goal but often hard to pinpoint or find. With careful questioning and honest assessment of your strengths, weaknesses, and values, your can find your ideal path without a lot of struggle or angst. To work with finding your ideal path, I listen carefully to you and work with many tools to help you get in touch with your patterns of decision-making and strategies for balance in your life. I ask deepening questions and help you find balance in life by helping you adjust priorities. My approach is always time, cost effective, and practical. To get started Contact me now. 
     
  • Clean Communication: Good communication is key in any relationship, including how you talk to yourself. By working with your own language and they way it affects you, you gain mastery and effortlessly change your patterns of behavior. Clean communication is a tool I use to that changes your patterns of self-talk without activating past traumas or negativity. It is a quick way to change behavior and very powerful in its effectiveness. To get started Contact me now.
     
  • Therapy for Depression and Anxiety: At times, everyone has down days or feels anxious about the unknown. When you find yourself thinking more about what is wrong in your life than what is right, it is time to get help. My approach is practical and straightforward. Because I have worked so extensively with depressed and anxious clients, I know how to short-circuit the inner self-talk to turn it from negative to positive. In addition, it is important to rule out medical or diet related factors in mood issues. Do not let your emotions rule your life, call me today (310) 403-4347, and get the help you need. 
     
  • Family Therapy: When anyone in an intimate relationship changes, the whole system in which they function experiences disequilibrium. Thus, through the years, I have spent a good deal of time working with families so all family members have their needs met and no one person carries the issues for the group. When a family works in a safe space and support each other in their process,  they can accomplish much more than any one individual member of the family. The benefits of a happy family have been scientifically documented. To get started call me (310) 403-4347.
     
  • Parenting Skills and Support: Despite having studied and become an expert on child behavior and development, when I had my children, I realized that parenting activates a lot of unconscious programming. I determined to learn how to work with my children so they would co-create their future and contribute in productive ways to my family while thriving in realizing their own potential. I studied Parent Effectiveness Training with Tom Gordon, Ph.D. and became a lead teacher while I was in Chicago. I used P.E.T. with my children very successfully and have expanded this work with teaching parenting skills through the years. Call me (310) 403-4347, to get started learning how to better communicate with your children.
     
  • Stress Management: Daily life is fraught with stressors. My toolbox for stress management includes many options that fit every lifestyle and age group. Balance and self-care are essential components in stress reduction along with a consistent practice of empowering self-talk. Stress management is a skill, easily taught. Call me (310) 403-4347 to get started. 
     
  • Meditation and Consciousness: When I began meditating in 1974, I knew very little about its benefits. However, within a week of starting to practice Transcendental Meditation, I found I had more energy, could swim double the number of laps I could previously swim, and my day seemed easier and more harmonious. I have continued to mediate twice daily since 1974, but have integrated other meditation and consciousness tools into my work and practice. I recommend that my clients integrate mediation into their process and I help them learn how to live with less stress and more ease in their life. To get started Contact me now.
     
  • Conflict Resolution:  I work with conflict resolution extensively, especially in cases of divorce. I am trained as a Collaborative Divorce Mental Health Coach and work with couples who are divorcing so they minimize the trauma and ill-will and find a way to resolve their issues; I have helped many divorcing couples come to a mutually beneficial resolution of their conflicts. In addition, I work with business people facing challenges and families in conflict. To get started Contact me now.

I work within a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, with a highly personalized approach tailored to each of my client’s individual needs. The goal is always to help clients attain personal growth, as they define it, and/or to help them gain clarity about their vision for themselves in their life.

I service the Westside of Los Angeles: Pacific Palisades Brentwood, Santa Monica, and West Hollywood. In addition, I do phone sessions with clients and also use Zoom for online video.
