About ME

Thanks for stopping by! What if your life didn't have to be painful and confusing?  Now imagine if you lived in a fish bowl, with the eyes of the media upon you.  You would want to know you have a safe place to go with someone who gets it, gets you and gets it fast. You would want someone who can really, truly help you.  As a psychotherapist for Entertainment Industry people, "Staying Sane in an Insane Industry" requires a systematic, positive, strength-based approach and a plan of action from the first session. That's where my nearly twenty years of experience as a coach of Olympic gold medalists and years of experience as a director helps. Just Imagine what it would be like to work with a psychotherapist who has helped people get to an Olympic gold medal.  You can read more here: With me, you will get real feedback from the first session. And I don't care if you are or aren't high profile. I treat all my clients the same; with dignity, respect and the belief that anyone is capable of healing.  Your journey towards the life you want to live is just that; Your journey. I will help guide you, but you are the star of your own life.  I'm just the stage manager. And though I specialize in treating artists and other high-pressure individuals and couples, I also work with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, work environment issues, mood disorders and provide executive coaching for those in or outside of the Industry. I believe in discovering the root of your problems first; we then work together to help you to make different choices in your life now. The two are interconnected and the past informs the present. With guidance and understanding your past patterns, the future can be filled with new choices which are are healthy and create vibrancy and joy in your life. Working in the Entertainment Industry isn't for the faint of heart.  Working as a psychotherapist with Entertainment Industry people tests even the strongest and the swiftest.  It takes persistence, dedication, sensitivity, experience, creativity and most of all, a great sense of humor; the same qualities you need to survive in The Industry.  When I tell people my practice is called "Staying Sane in an Insane Industry," I usually get a smile, a nod of agreement and a pat on the shoulder, sometimes with a sympathetic look.  It helps to have someone who has walked the walk, not just talked the talk.  It means I really do understand your unique challenges to keep your head together when everyone else around you is falling apart. Let's get started.  Contact me today and start living a healthier future tomorrow. 310-882-6805 or email,
