Personal Statement

I am glad you are here. Are you experiencing issues with depression, anxiety, stress, frustration, divorce, self-esteem or your relationships? I am here to help.

Together, we will help you find strength and solutions to make changes and improve your life. We will pick up the pieces, get better at doing what works, discard what doesn’t, and learn to recognize that you are not the problem–the problem is the problem, and the relationship you have with it is yours to define.

I work with men, women, couples, families and teens, and am a LGBTQ ally. If you or someone you love is struggling, please give me a call or send an email. My office is easy to find on Ventura Blvd in Encino, with free parking in a private lot.

My normal fee is $140.00 per 50-minute session, and I offer a sliding scale for those clients who need it--please talk to me about your situation, and I will do my best to work with you if possible. I am a Marriage and Family Therapist Registered Intern #87443 in private practice with Change Within Reach, Inc. , and supervised by Anna Gershelis.
