Born in Los Angeles, I retired from the film industry and became a psychotherapist to fulfill a passsion for helping others on a personal level. My experience working on addictions and co-occurring mental health issues comes from years working at inpatient facilities in California, as well as overseas.
My approach to therapy is a hybrid of modalities including Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Person-Cantered, Solution-Focused, and Existentialism.
With some clients I use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). This technique can help facilitate an extremely fast reduction in symptoms. I have provided ths type of therapy for deveral years and have witnessed impressive results with my clients.
