Life's twists and turns can be stressful and exhausting. Learning to cope, and figuring out what to do, and how to find the happiness you wish for can feel overwhelming. Does this sound familiar?


I specialize in helping people create happiness and recover from depression, anxiety, and the emotional chaos that life can throw at you. Together, we can help you get on with living your life in healthy, happy, and productive ways. I believe you don't just find happiness, and it doesn't just find you. I believe you create it. Helping people figure out just how to do that is my job.

My offices in Encino (Ventura Blvd near White Oak) and Simi Valley (Jones Way, near the hospital) are easy to find, with free parking at both locations. It is my mission to help people find the answers they are looking for and address the issues covered on this site. I genuinely love what I do, and I am here to help.

In addition to my specializations, I work with adults, teens, couples and families who are struggling with any of the following: stress/overwhelm, communication, grief and loss, family conflict, boundaries, adjustment, divorce, phase of life, making tough decisions, career satisfaction, academic performance, parenting and co-parenting, dating, loneliness, self-doubt, social awkwardness, self-care, and improving your quality of life.

If you have questions about therapy for yourself or someone you love, or if you wish to make an appointment, please contact me using the information here. Thank you for visiting, and I hope you find this site helpful.
