Therapy Qualifications & Training


I have almost 10 years of experience conducting therapy with individuals and couples with a majority of my work focused on issues related to depression, anxiety, and relationships.

I have specialized training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic Therapy for depression, anxiety and couples. CBT has vast research proving its efficacy. I have also intensively studied ISTDP and AEDP, subsets of emotion focused therapy, which has also been demonstrated to be effective in numerous studies. These are experiential modalities which focus on bridging the disconnect between the intellect and actions through the deep experiencing of long-suppressed emotions such as anger, joy and grief. This technique breaks down the defenses and allows you to become free of the harmful self-protective strategies that have caused isolation, loneliness or patterns of unhealthy relationships.

I hold a Master’s degree from UCLA in Clinical Social Work with a specialization in Mental Health and I am licensed with the California Board of Behavioral Sciences. I also have a Bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience from USC, which has given me a strong understanding of the neurochemical basis of behavior and the biological underpinnings of depression, anxiety, addiction and bipolar disorder as well as the neurobiological development of children and adolescents. For a more detailed look at the therapeutic process and the primary interventions I use, please see the About Therapy page or if you have any questions, call me now at: 310-896-5568.
