Based in the Atwater Village neighborhood of Northeast Los Angeles, I specialize in working with adult daughters of narcissistic, abusive, neglectful or emotionally absent parents. I am WIEBGE (Will I Ever Be Good Enough) certified in Dr. Karyl McBride’s 5-step recovery program, a program that has been helpful to many women in reclaiming their lives from a difficult and painful childhood and, in the process, rediscovering their own resiliencies.
I also help women:
- Navigate life transitions, such as launching, break-up/divorce, parenthood and caregiving
- Bolster self-esteem and embrace a more positive and empowered self/body image
- Nurture healthy relationships, boundaries and thoughts
- Lessen the grip of anxiety and depression and invite more full-color living
Depending on the needs and interests of the client, our work together may weave in elements of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (particularly mindful awareness, emotional regulation, shifting from black-and-white thinking), positive psychology, expressive therapy, bibliotherapy, cinematherapy, music therapy, depth psychology and ecotherapy. I provide a warm and caring space where each client can connect with her own unique and authentic strengths, values, goals and whatever makes her soul sing.
