Helping others has been my passion ever since I went through my own personal journey of healing.  My father died when I was a young child and his death changed who I was.  Learning to live without him was a terribly difficult task for a young girl; I had no idea who I was and felt completely empty and alone. At the same time, I was determined to be a survivor, not a victim.

My experience was that I felt trapped. Trapped in my grief; trapped in this story that was not of my choosing and there was no way out.  I think when you have a bad childhood you are at the mercy of what happens to you.  You are not the master of your own life.  You have to deal with life based on this deck of cards you were dealt, but the hurts were not ones you created.  The foundation that other people have, which sets the groundwork for a great life, is missing from the lives of people who are raised without parents.

For me this sense of feeling lost, without a path, led to a bottom as a young adult.  I had to start over; I had to make a new story for my life, one that was of my own choosing and not the one I had been handed. But I did not write this story on my own. I needed to seek help, and once I did, I gained command of my own life and was able to clearly choose the path that was best for me. As an adult, I came to understand myself better and to know that I was not alone in my journey. Many people have been through very difficult times.  These difficulties shape people’s lives and affect everything around them: their careers, relationships, even their ability to be good parents.

I knew that my journey would lead me to helping others discover their own path. Twenty years ago, I became a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and began assisting people along their own journeys.  If you’re looking for a guide, I can help you.

If you’re dealing with an issue like this, I would be happy to help.  Please reach out by calling my office at 310-314-6933 or sending me a private email.

How does this journey start?

It starts with a simple desire to learn what you didn’t know; the things you were not taught and could never grasp from a book, the Internet, from your friends or lovers.  How can you know what you don’t know?  The answer is, you can’t.  But if you’re struggling with a sense that this is not the life you were meant to live, I can help you untangle from your feelings the life you’re meant to lead.  Many of my clients are struggling with a sense of being all alone in the world.  Some are lonely or angry or frustrated that life (and love) don’t work out the way they always thought it would.

I’m here to tell you that this can all change for the better.

  • If you’re experiencing sadness or loneliness, you can overcome it.
  • If you’re frustrated that you never seem to find the right person to date, we can work on changing your patterns so you attract better people.
  • If you’re worried that you’re in a bad marriage or that you’re wasting too many years on the wrong people, you can change this.
  • And finally, if you’ve realized that on the other side of all of your decisions is you, you can learn to be more accountable and loving to yourself; after all, love starts within.
