All About Therapy

Learn About Strength-Based Therapy

The theory: Strength-Based Therapy finds that through adversity, people discover their inner strengths. Further, how we face life’s challenges depends on whether we feel we are operating from a position of deficit or negativity and mistrust, or from a place of strength, positivity and trust. 

The practice: The hopeful field of neuroplasticity has proven that we can mentally grow at any age!  When we engage in mindful, reflective and nurturing dialogues with a trusted therapist and within our own consciousness, we are able to find our find and build on our strengths.  We CAN transform grief, depression and hopelessness and re-engage with life around us.  When we transform our worldview to one that is more positive, our energy is freed up to move forward through pain, doubt, and grief towards living a fuller, more meaningful life.

Motivational Quote

"If I am not for myself, who will be for me?

If I am only for myself, what am I?

If not now, when?"

About Me

Compassionate Care

Helping people with compassion is my passion. My desire to make a difference in the world led me to study psychology and human development at University of Texas at Austin and Spiritual Education at Yeshiva University, where I received my BA and MA, graduating with honors.  Delving deeper into human understanding and empathy, I received my Masters in Clinical Social Work at Hunter College School of Social Work in Manhattan in 1999.  I have devoted 20 years to my role as a community-based social worker for families in crisis.  I ministered to aging Holocaust Survivors for 10 years, treating intergenerational family trauma and grief. 

The last 14 years in the Los Angeles area have been very precious to me.  In raising my three children with special needs, I have learned much about resilience and mindfulness.  I am versed in educational and medical advocacy, while also providing supportive counseling to families facing chronic illness and loss.  My work has focused on childhood and adult chronic illness, cancer, genetic disorders, pediatric intensive care, sibling support, caregiver stress, loss and grief counseling, women's issues, infertility, life transitions and spiritual counseling.  I enjoy integrating a holistic approach to emotional healing, which starts with lots of loving care. Using other evidence-based interventions, I offer self-expression, understanding and acceptance that inspires meaningful living. 


I look forward to meeting you!
