I am the president and founder of Pacific Marriage & Family Therapy Network, a group of skilled clinicians in private practice with offices in Santa Monica and Manhattan Beach, CA. IN my own work, I have an eclectic style which incorporates many different orientations of therapy. I particularly enjoy utilizing; Solution Focused, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Somatic Experiencing, Family Systems, and Attachment Therapy techniques in my practice. The manner in which I work is highly determined by my client and what speaks to them. I work to help clients be the best person possible. I work to empower clients so they recognize their choices in life and take advantage of them. I enjoy working with adults, families, and couples, but especially love working with teens/adolescents and parents. I have had success with anxiety, stress, overwhelm, depression, family problems, relationship problems, and work and school issues. I treat my clients with the utmost respect to create an environment of safety and comfort. My clients grow through the partnership we create together. We work collaboratively to foster awareness and empower change in a gentle and respectful manner. I really get to know my clients and support them through life's challenges. Clients find my style helpful and appreciate my feedback. I foster a nonthreatening and safe environment to help my clients feel comfortable.

ServicesI believe that therapy is a journey of self-discovery best realized in partnership with a safe and nurturing other. Life can be exciting and very challenging. It was not meant to be handled alone. Therapy means finding support. It means having a place where you can be authentic and not be judged. It is a place where you can evaluate your personal journey and find the strength to recognize the answers to your inner most questions and make choices that will change your life. I believe that therapy empowers people to discover, find a voice, inspire change, and heal.Additional ServicesParenting, Teens, Couples, Anxiety, Life Transitions
