Finding the right Therapist is essential to the healing process.

I offer a free 30-minute consultation, over the phone or in person, to see if we are the right fit for each other. You can schedule the confidential consultation by phone, e-mail, or submit a request from the contact form.

Many clients are ready to begin therapy by the time they place that first difficult call. If I feel I can help you, we’ll schedule our first therapy session after the initial consultation.

During the first therapy session, I’ll get to know you, explore the nature of your problems and concerns, and gather information about your medical, psychological, family, and relationship history. This information will help me assess the problem and guide the development of an appropriate treatment plan.

Therapy sessions are usually once a week for 50-55 minutes; this is your time each week to explore your thoughts, feelings and concerns and obstacles.

My preference is to meet in person at either of my two locations: Palos Verdes and Hermosa Beach, CA. I also offer secure video conferencing for clients who have hectic schedules or struggle to leave the house. When requested, I can also work over the phone. Regardless of how we meet, you will have my undivided attention so I can truly understand your experience and perspective and provide you with real-world options.

If you, your teen, or any other family member are suffering from depression, experiencing family conflict, struggling to recover from substance abuse, trauma, stress or anxiety, or are seeking a life coach or recovery coach, I invite you to contact me or call 424-265-8001 for a free 30-minute consultation.

The challenge that so many people have is not knowing how to take that first step of reaching out to another person for help.
