Brief Vacation 250I view my work with clients as a profound and meaningful collaboration. It’s a safe and welcoming relationship in which pain can be explored and one’s own voice heard.

Therapy is also a space for humor, authenticity, and life-giving creativity. In short, psychotherapy mirrors the human journey, and we bring to therapy not only our problems, but also our deepest strengths and potential.

I am licensed as a Marriage & Family Therapist in the state of California, and my therapy practice is located in Pasadena, in the Los Angeles area.


In our work together, my most sacred task is to listen deeply. I want to understand what you have encountered in life and how it has shaped you. I’m curious about your inner strengths and outer resources. I want to know what made your heart sing as a child and young person. I am eager to hear about your soul life, and about what nurtures and what depletes you.

This witnessing allows the form of your story to unfold for both of us. It invites the shape behind the story to step forward.

In addition to traditional talk therapy, I integrate the following approaches for those who are interested:

The Revelation Births 250Body Wisdom

Many, if not most of us, have experienced a disconnection from the body. Our culture bombards us with unrealistic standards of beauty that cause us to turn on our own bodies, evaluating ourselves from the outside in.

The strain that chronic pain or illness create can also put us at odds with the body. Our emotions become more likely to snap to the surface, and often our relationships struggle.
