I am a licensed psychotherapist in private practice in West Los Angeles with over 20 years experience working with adult children of narcissist parents. I received a BA in Communication Studies from UCLA and an MA in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University. My post-graduate training is in psychodynamic and object relations therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), hypnotherapy, and EMDR. I am a long standing member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT) and am certified in Dr. McBride's WIEBGE five-step recovery model.
My own journey and recovery from narcissistic parental abuse has given me a first-hand perspective and understanding of my clients. Therapeutically I have found that EMDR (a technique to clear away trauma and reprogram negative beliefs) in conjunction with Dr. McBride's 5 step model are extremely effective methods for helping clients recover. Some common issues I work with include PTSD, stress and anger management, grief, anxiety, depression, OCD, panic disorders, addictions, and phobias. I am passionate about creating a safe, nurturing environment in which to heal.
Saturday sessions are available.
