Therapy for adult individuals and couples in the San Fernando Valley
Whether you're looking to enhance relationships, improve your mood, cope with transition or loss, or relieve symptoms of anxiety or depression, I'm here to help. As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I can help you overcome the things that are holding you back.
If you want to relieve your symptoms, I can provide short-term solution-focused treatment. Or, if you are seeking to make more significant changes, I also offer longer, in-depth therapy.
I draw on my past experiences as a teacher for special needs students, a businesswoman, a parent, and an active community volunteer to provide you with a warm, common-sense approach to therapy. In addition to my private practice, I am currently the Director of the Wagner Program, where I train my students in counseling skills.
Are you feeling sad, trapped, or hopeless?
Are you frequently annoyed or irritated?
Are your old ways of doing things no longer working for you?
Are you having difficulty adjusting to significant change or loss?
Do you find you no longer enjoy things that used to give you pleasure?
Are you tired of burdening your friends with your problems?
If you have answered "yes" to even one of these questions, you might benefit from therapy. Seeking help can be a sign of strength and hope rather than futility and failure.
How Can Therapy Help?
As your personal therapist, I am trained to listen to you in a non-judgmental, supportive way. I provide a safe, caring experience that helps you discover what is getting in the way of your happiness. I offer short-term therapy for symptom relief and longer-term treatment to promote growth and fulfillment. You decide what is best for you. In addition to talking about your problems, I can help you relieve anxiety, pain, and fears through meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, and visualization. Many clients have benefited from these techniques, and continue to use them long after therapy has ended.
Through therapy, you will gain insight into your patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving. This awareness helps you discover your personal strengths so that you can adopt more effective strategies to cope with the challenges that life presents.
