Welcome to my practice, and congratulations on taking the first step towards changing something in your life that does not serve you. If you are looking for a therapist, it means that you want something different for yourself. I would be honored to work alongside you as we figure out together how to get you unstuck. We will use a variety of techniques to build on your existing strengths, and return you to the level of life-quality you are wishing for.
Did you know anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older, or 18.1% of the population every year (Anxiety and Depression Association of America, 2019).
I am a Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) expert with over 10 years of treating BDD. I was trained at the OCD intensive treatment program at UCLA and the Los Angeles Body Dysmorphic & Body Image Clinic in Westwood, CA, which is renown for being one of the best clinics in the country for BDD. I have also worked with Dr. Jamie Feusner at the UCLA Body Dysmorphic Research Program where I co -authored 2 research articles on BDD. Over the years I have gained deep knowledge in how to treat co-occuring disorder such as general anxiety disorder, phobias, PTSD, social anxiety, panic disorder and of course depression.
Maternal Mental Health
I also focus on perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) If you are currently pregnant, or have recently become a mother, there are many changes happening both in your body and in your environment. We are told this time should be joyous and amazing, and often times it is, but for many mothers it can be a time of worry, sadness, and chaos. This is normal, and I am here to support you through this exciting, but also exhausting time. I have a strong network of providers who are expert in working with mothers
