Westwood psychologist


Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. Finding a psychotherapist in Westwood you feel comfortable working with is important. It is my hope that the information offered here will give you a sense of who I am and how I work. I invite you to explore my website to help you begin to determine if I'm the right fit for you.

There are many reasons why you might be considering therapy at this time: a long-standing problem, the impact of a current life situation, and/or wanting support for your personal growth. Whatever your reasons, I know that it's important for you to find a therapist with whom you feel you can develop a good working relationship - someone whom you feel you can trust, who can understand your situation, someone with solid training and experience.

In our work together we will come to understand more about the sense you may have that your life is not your own - feeling stuck, feeling driven by old habits, feeling depressed, feeling consumed and forestalled by rage, feeling that change is needed in your relationship or in your career.

You and I will work together to build a trusting and non-judgmental relationship where you can feel safe to talk about yourself openly. The strength of our relationship is a crucial foundation for our work together. You know your life better than anyone else. Therefore, we will hold great respect for your wisdom about yourself. I will offer my professional knowledge and wisdom as well, and together, we will work to help you discover how to live the life that is best and most fitting for you.

I look forward to hearing from you.
