"Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes."
- Carl Jung
When you're searching for greater self awareness through therapy, look for a psychologist who will connect with you, and listen without judgment. My goal is to create a safe, caring environment for you where we can discover ways to achieve your personal goals.
As a licensed Psychologist, providing psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapy to individuals, couples and groups in Santa Monica and Pasadena, California, you and I work together to increase awareness of your inner world and its influence over relationships both past and present. The long-term goal is for deep seated change in your personal and emotional connections. In therapy, unconscious patterns of your inner world become reflected in our relationship, known as transference. This process helps you gradually to identify these patterns and, by bringing them into awareness, learn to understand them.
Through this process, together we work to help you understand and change complex, deep-seated and often unconsciously based emotional and relational problems, reducing symptoms, decreasing distress, and gaining greater personal insight.
