I am a Psychotherapist practicing in the Eagle Rock area of Southern California. I work primarily with individuals and some couples who are experiencing various personal and relational issues. 

I have a master’s degree from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA and a California State Marriage and Family Therapy License.  

I have substantial training and clinical experience in a wide assortment of modalities.  I integrate both traditional therapeutic approaches with alternative healing traditions. 

I call this work ‘Awakening the Inner Heart’ because, although we wish to be seen and loved, we frequently limit ourselves out of fear of having our heart broken.  This fear creates an obstacle to awakening from the trance of identification as an ego.   Only when we are willing to face this fear, to allow the ‘sentimental’ heart to break completely open, can the Inner Heart of radiant wisdom emerge.  Once this Inner Heart is revealed, the search for external love and guidance ceases because we discover that the source of all love and all wisdom is already within us.  

This, is the Awakening! 

"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." ~Rumi
