I am a Certified Gottman Therapist and a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist based in Los Angeles, and have been in private practice for over ten years. I graduated with a BA in Psychology from Yale University and a Master's in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University, and specialize in couples. Central to my work is the concept of empathy and understanding each partner from within his or her subjective experience. Such understanding is an essential ingredient for changing patterns of interaction that lead to conflict or disengagement. I also address underlying issues that may contribute to a couple's distress, such as anxiety, depression, early life experiences or trauma, and addiction. Childhood experiences can shape adult relationships in various ways. Understanding those experiences provides relief and results in less conflict and greater closeness between partners. The Gottman Method is a practical approach that helps couples strengthen their friendship, repair after a fight, and compromise without giving up core needs. I find that meaningful change often occurs in a short amount of time using these tools. Couples therapy can be life-changing, whether your relationship is in crisis or you simply want to strengthen what's already working.
