Professional statement

Savannah is a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist based in Los Angeles, CA who welcomes both individual adults, adolescents, and couples who are seeking to create change in their lives. Together she will take a holistic approach with her clients to identify their needs for self-care and balance. Together she collaborates with clients to help overcome perceived limitations to achieve personal goals. Through active listening, warmth, and empathy she gently challenges clients to understand the root cause of their symptoms.

Savannah's current area of focus includes complex trauma, relationship issues, stress management, mood disorders, and recovery from substance use disorders. Together she collaborates with clients to help overcome perceived limitations resulting from a harsh inner-critic to achieve personal goals. Through active listening, warmth, and empathy she gently challenges clients to understand the root cause of their symptoms, graining the empowerment of increased self-insight. She is also a certified NAMA Anger Management Counselor offering stress management skills to individuals in in high-stress professions.

Beginning with counseling victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse to currently working in private practice and with an agency specializing in the treatment of addiction and co-occurring disorders, Savannah has experience with a wide variety of mental issues. Her driving force always has been the healing potential of human connection. While psychotherapy can be difficult, and at times painful, witnessing clients transform their own lives and reach their own personal goals continues to be a cherished honor. Savannah works primarily from a cognitive-behavioral framework. She also utilizes dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills training, attachment-based, and Existential-humanistic psychotherapy. Her style is highly collaborative, trauma-informed, and solution-focused.


Message to clients

If you are here, I imagine life feels particularly stressful and out of your control. Avoiding these emotions can have painful consequences including relational conflict, mood disorders such as depression and anxiety, and an increased risk for developing a physical illness.  In psychotherapy, you will, in a safe space, confront these unprocessed emotions and make sense of them. Together we will develop a keen awareness of your authentic self, and you will learn the skills to manage life stressors with confidence. We will explore what you need to feel respected and valued in your relationships, and I will walk alongside you as you learn to confront unprocessed emotions and create healthy foundations with loved ones, at work, and in dating relationships. When working with me, you will find that my chosen style is highly collaborative and supportive. I also aim to help you overcome any perceived limitations that may be perpetuating a negative emotional state through psychoeducation and skills training. I too have felt unable to manage my emotions, but I did manage to work through it, and I am here to help.
