I am a therapist in the Encino area. I specialize in
the treatment of anxiety, depression and relationship issues. I do this by focusing on increasing
self-esteem, confidence, awareness of feelings, appropriate boundary setting,
and assertiveness. One of my main goals in treatment is to
help you develop a more cohesive and positive sense of self and to
help you experience and maintain healthier and more satisfying
Psychotherapy can address a wide range of
issues including managing stress, creating a better work-life balance,
overcoming anxiety and self-criticism and alleviating depression.
Therapy helps by creating new and sometimes dramatically different ways
of looking at yourself, your relationships and your world, which can
bring about solutions to even longstanding, seemingly insurmountable
problems. Therapy can help you access the feelings that lead to a
richer day-to-day experience
I use a variety of modalities depending on the needs
of my clients. These modalities include psychodynamic,
cognitive-behavioral, object-relations, experiential, humanistic and
mindfulness therapies. I believe in an eclectic approach to therapy combining
relational work, psychodynamic exploration and behavioral exercises.
Individual therapy can break the cycle
of unsatisfying relationships, experiences and life choices.
