About Me

A Little Information About Me

I am a Los Angeles, South Bay, Marriage and Family Therapist, who brings over 25 combined years of coaching, counseling and business services to those who desire to find more peace and satisfaction in their lives.

My background includes a Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Russian from the University of Wisconsin. Over the years, I have obtained a unique combination of clinical psychology and corporate business background which enables me to provide a rich counseling experience to my clients. This is my "second career" and I can attest that once you follow your true passion, everything else falls into place. I strive to instill that confidence and trust in my clients as well. I am deeply passionate about what I do, see the benefits daily in this work, and believe my clients feel that energy in session.

I have worked with hundreds of patients from all walks of life, which means you will benefit from an empathetic therapist with deep insight and a practical view of the problems people are facing today. I work with adults and adolescents on relationship issues, self-esteem and helping people through difficult situations. I have particular experience in family systems, including communication struggles, intimacy and divorce matters, as well as offering parenting support. My passion is to help people get in touch with their “authentic self” -- as this is the cornerstone of finding meaning and happiness in life.
