Free Consultation 

Please contact me for a 15-minute phone consultation. This will give us a chance to discuss what brings you to therapy, the session fee and determine if we are a good fit.

Getting Started 

There are some forms that need to be filled out prior to our first session. Once you complete them through the secure client portal, we will review them in our first session. Our first few sessions will focus on gathering information and your goals for therapy.

What to expect

Meeting on a weekly basis provides continuity while building rapport & trust and this is especially important the first few months. 

Sometimes people come into therapy to deal with a specific problem and decide to stay to work on other issues that come up. As we continue, we'll collaborate to determine what works best for you.


All sessions are conducted via teletherapy on HIPAA- secure platform. There are no in-person sessions offered at this time.

Teletherapy allows me to provide my specialized services to those that otherwise would not have access.

My services are available to anyone living in the state of California (not just Los Angeles).

"When we liberate ourselves from the expectation that we must have all things

figured out, we enter a sanctuary of empathy."
