I am a Los Angeles-based psychotherapist with 15-years experience in a private practice setting.
I earned my B.A. in Psychology from Yale University, and attended Antioch University for graduate work in Clinical Psychology. My work with individuals is psychodynamic, looking at the ways in which early attachment experiences may affect relationships, life choices, and how we see ourselves and others.
In my work with couples, I use two approaches: The Gottman Method, in which I became Certified in 2015, and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, or EFT. Both methods are “evidence-based,” meaning they were developed using extensive research on how to help couples move from distress to greater closeness. I also do Marathon Couples sessions and am one of twenty therapists selected from around the world to participate in a Pilot Study with John and Julie Gottman on the design of their model for Marathon Couples Therapy. I have worked as a Certified Co-Active Professional Coach for over 20 years, and incorporate those tools in working with circumstances or issues that may benefit from a more solution-focused approach.
