About
Therapy

At the root of so much suffering is one simple yet insidious cause: self-doubt. As we reclaim our inner knowing, many of our mental health concerns begin to heal and self-liberate.

Our goal is to help you find clarity, purpose, and strength as you reconnect to your intuitive wisdom and cultivate an unshakeable resiliency that you carry into every challenge you face.

Therapy Works

My LA Therapy Philosophy

As more and more research is conducted, one thing becomes increasingly clear: therapy works. Independent researchers continually find the benefits of psychotherapy not only endure but increase over time. Even more compelling is the finding that the indicators of emotional health for recipients of psychodynamic therapy equal and often exceed those of medication. To see the research for yourself, click here: The Efficacy of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.

Effective therapy actually alters the chemicals in your brain and rewires your neural pathways, transforming the way you process information about yourself and the world. In fact, therapy has even been shown to have a powerful impact on physical diseases. In one study, patients with metastatic breast cancer who received therapy lived an average of 18 months longer than those who did not.

While some anxiety is a normal part of life (sigh), when it’s accompanied by feelings of hopelessness or loss of control—or when it starts to interfere with your everyday functioning—it’s time to seek help from a professional therapist.

Scientifically speaking, anxiety is just your body’s natural response to stress.

Sadness is a normal part of life, but when it’s accompanied by hopelessness, worthlessness, or numbness, it’s a sign that there’s something more serious at hand that requires professional attention and care. These feelings may indicate that you’re experiencing depression, a common mood disorder that can stem from trauma, learned behavior, negative thought patterns, and biochemistry–or some combination of all of the above.

Love can be one of the most powerful and beautiful experiences in life, but at times it can also bring us more pain than joy. Can you relate?

Dating can be as intoxicating and exciting as it is painful and destructive. And sometimes we find ourselves in relationships that hurt us or just aren’t right for us, but we still have a hard time leaving.

While each member of our Therapist Team has a great deal of training and experience, what makes us different is who we are. Authenticity, openness, and warmth are a central part of who we are and how we practice. We strive to be real and we don’t put on pretenses or hide behind the veil of professionalism. Because we have overcome struggles in our own lives, we feel uniquely qualified to help you with yours — not looking down from an ivory tower, but as people who have been in the trenches too. Remember this. Whatever you are feeling, no matter how crazy or scary or different, you are not alone.

At the beginning of treatment, it is recommended that you meet with your therapist weekly. Standard sessions are 50-minutes long. You may request longer sessions in advance if you plan ahead and schedule them with your therapist. To set something up, all you have to do is email or call us and determine a time that works for you and for your therapist. To learn more about our team and choose which therapist is best for you, please visit the Therapy Team page.
