I am a licensed marriage and family therapist (License #90052) in Los Angeles, CA and serve clients all around Los Angeles, and most accessible from West Los Angeles, including West Hollywood, Santa Monica, Silicon Beach, Mid City, Culver City, Ladera Hights, El Segundo, Manhatten Beach and Hermosa Beach.
I hold a Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University and am currently a doctoral candidate at the Los Angeles Institute and Society for Psychoanalytic Studies (LAISPS). Past training sites include the nationally recognized Maple Counseling Center in Beverly Hills, analytic training focussed on “Early Childhood and Parenting” at LAISPS as well as the California Suicide Prevention Center. I have contributed to multiple research projects at the UCLA Semel Institute.
My clinical approach varies with each client, is interactive and interpersonal and is based on modern Psychodynamic/Psychoanalytic concept-ualization as well as the more directive and structured approach of DBT.
I offer psychotherapy and psychoanalytic services in English as well as German with native fluency.
