About My Practice
If you’re struggling with addictions or substance abuse along with, or separate from, challenges such as depression, trauma, anxiety, grief, spiritual issues or personality disorders, perhaps you will allow me to be of help. I work with individuals, adolescents, couples and families of all faiths and sexual orientations.
In my office in downtown Santa Monica, California, I work with a population that ranges from the entertainment and the arts to business executives, and home-makers. In addition to addiction and other mood or personality disorders, I also have extensive experience in treating couples for pre-marital and overall relationship and communication counseling, executive and life coaching and “failure to launch” issues for adolescents and young adults who are struggling with identity and phase of life concerns.
I conduct therapy in my private practice office in Santa Monica, California but am willing under certain special circumstances, and for an additional fee, to travel to your private home or office to conduct therapy. I can also conduct therapy via skype or telephone for some sessions. Engaging in therapy or life coaching is a sign of resilience and strength in the face of personal or professional struggles.
You may be afraid, but remember, courage is not the absence of fear. You will find that by engaging in a strong, therapeutic relationship, we will both work to uncover the sometimes unconscious motivations and self destructive behaviors, defenses, and thoughts that are preventing you from living your life to the fullest capacity. It takes work and discipline to change, but with a competent, experienced therapist who will walk with you during your journey, you will find that you can learn to take charge of your life and to take responsibility for your own choices. You will discover you can be a force of change for your own life and even inspire others who bear witness your positive changes.
