Welcome

Are you anxious about the coronavirus situation? I provide teletherapy and video-counseling. It works just as normal therapy sessions do, but we talk remotely, on a video platform, instead of in my office. It’s easy and it really works — it’s helping many of my clients right now. Contact me if you want to try it out.

I’m seeing how worried and disoriented people are feeling in this difficult moment. Therapy can help you regain a sense of control, equilibrium, and hope. It does this by helping you express and process fears (holding them in just makes things bleaker, and you start to lose perspective). It also does this by helping you center on the good realities, healthy routines, and promising goals within your grasp (these good things can get drowned out by our fears).

Therapy is also productive activity — it gives you the opportunity to work on issues that perhaps you’ve wanted to address for a while now. Most of my clients are professionals working on themselves or their relationships. They want to get better at love, work, family, happiness.

If you would like to schedule an initial free consultation, or have any questions,  contact me and I’ll be happy to respond.

About Me

I’m a licensed therapist and my private practice is in Manhattan Beach, open weekdays and Sundays. I’ve helped many people in the South Bay and Beach Cities and love what I do.

It’s a diverse practice, composed mainly of professionals interested to work through trouble spots or address some aspect of themselves they wish to change. Common themes are: relationship trouble; couples or parenting work; career dissatisfaction; addictions; childhood formations impeding happiness; low self-esteem; persistent anger, sadness, fear or detachment; and yearnings for personal growth.

I view therapy as a safe haven and growth platform. It’s a place to explore feelings, organize thoughts, process connections, and cultivate new parts of yourself. People often start out unsure of the benefits of therapy — they’re giving it a try because they’ve already tried everything else. Gradually this changes and they wish they’d come in sooner.

Personally, I’m not at all judgmental, welcome all moods, and appreciate humor and laughter.

I have a background as a college professor. I’ve also lived and traveled extensively abroad, and have roots in D.C. and northern California (see the hills of Mount Tamilpais in the background). I know from years of experience that people have the ability to change and grow.
