I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist practicing in Santa Monica, California. I provide individual, couple, family, and group therapy to adults and children. My approach to therapy is to work collaboratively. We will explore the thoughts, behaviors, and feelings that may be causing you distress. 

I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, developmental trauma, and behavioral struggles in children. I'm available to do behavioral assisting in schools with children who have social emotional difficulties. I work individually with the child as well as with the teachers to help better understand the child.
