Counseling for Anxiety in DTLA


Take a deep breath again.

I help lawyers and other professionals overcome difficult emotions and experience relief.

You feel tight in your chest, spinning thoughts, difficulty concentrating, and can’t focus on work or anything else. Your relationships feel shaky and you wake up most mornings dreading the day ahead. You wish you could somehow take a breath, but the pressing demands make it almost impossible. You don’t feel like yourself anymore.

You want to make clear decisions, use your time intentionally, and make space for what you love. You want to be able to focus attention on things you care about. More than anything, you want to enjoy your life again.

I can help you get there. The first step is simply to understand your emotions so we can learn to handle the stressors of life in a new, healthy way. That’s what therapy is about. It’s about learning new ways to experience your world that leads to greater freedom from destructive patterns.

Let’s get you to a place where you can wake up feeling hopeful about your life. Request a call with me today.
Why do I have panic attacks?

Panic attacks and anxiety can affect your sleep, your relationships, your productivity, and your mood. If we don’t have a way to manage panic, we suppress it with addictive behaviors, such as workaholism, substances, and chronic phone use. Reducing panic attacks means shifting our understanding from frustration and suppression to empathy and self-soothing.

What do you like about being a therapist?

It's easy to feel alone in a city as large as LA. I think most of us are looking for good conversation about things that matter most to us, but instead are sometimes treated cogs in a larger engine. I find joy in setting aside a sanctuary for my clients where we can open up more of who they are and discover things that make a real difference in their lives.
