Welcome to Your Journey Into Affirmative Therapy
During these stressful times, you may be feeling a yearning to address some of the problems and issues that have been keeping you from fulfilling your potential and living your life to the fullest.
My way of working is to help you feel safe and cared for. We can address your fears, worried and anxieties. Solutions can be discovered through dialogue. As we work to solve your pressing concerns, we can also address more spiritual matters, the search for greater meaning and deeper purpose. I will talk with you as a companion in your journey. I work with all people and specialize in working with LGBTQ clients, women and people of color and men struggling with today's pressures.
As a professor of clinical psychology at Antioch University, I have spent the last 20 years training therapists to open their hearts and also to engage with vitality and courage. There I founded and directed the Antioch University LGBT Specialization and Colors LGBTQ Youth Counseling Center. As a result, I have access to a host of different methods and approaches, including psychodynamic, existentialist, feminist, CBT and somatic.
My way of working is to engage you in a conversational and respectful way. I will always check-in with you during each session to see how we are doing and what can be improved. Together we come up with collaborative goals to meet your needs.
If you feel you are stuck with your current therapist, or if you want a therapist who will try a new and more engaged approach, give me a call at 213-924-9149, or email me at
