Therapists Providing Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) in Los Angeles

Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) is a cognitive behavioral therapy that helps people reduce anxiety by gradually facing their fears. The client learns to identify triggers, obsessive thoughts, and unhelpful coping strategies such as compulsions, rituals, or avoidance. The client then begins facing their fears while refraining from any of the unhelpful coping strategies. Anxiety gradually subsides in response to increased exposure to the trigger.

Your choice to seek help is a strong measure of your self-love, open-mindedness, and courage. Seeking help requires accepting one's vulnerability in order to be able to acknowledge one's difficulties, learn to face those difficulties, and with treatment, become powerful enough to make necessary changes in one's life. This is, without a doubt, a great challenge, but the rewards are invaluable and endless. I commend you for taking this step.

My treatment philosophy is strength-based and is centered around providing adequate psychoeducation to equip you with the crucial knowledge and understanding necessary to foster your growth and empowerment. This way, together we can achieve sustained progress through treatment and the successful resolution of your symptoms.

I am a strong proponent of healthy living, balance, and self-care in conjunction with treatment because I have witnessed the numerous positive effects of these on one's overall wellbeing and how these help my patients respond to treatment. To this end, in addition to the treatment I provide, I strongly encourage and facilitate my patients' discovery and engagement in self-fulfilling activities of all kinds.

I know therapy works within a warm, safe, non-judgmental, and collaborative space and am dedicated to creating this space, and utilizing it as the foundation of our work together. I pride myself on being down-to-earth, funny, and approachable so that my clients can feel safe and allow me to guide them in their therapeutic journey. I understand life is busy and filled with many challenges. Being in therapy should not be one more thing on your plate; rather it should be your own space to work on your self-care and mental health.

My approach is supportive yet directive and I encourage my clients to gradually step out of their comfort zone. I believe the best way to ensure progress is to get comfortable being uncomfortable so that you can be comfortable again! Whether it’s stress, anxiety, racing thoughts, pain, or all of the above, my goal with every client is to help them better understand how to use their brain to their advantage so that they can achieve their goals.

Please don't hesitate to reach out and schedule a complimentary phone consultation to see if my services are right for you. I look forward to hearing from you!

Choosing to enter psychotherapy can be a difficult process. Finding a therapist you are comfortable with is an important first step. Our work together begins with collaboratively understanding what brought you in and how we will best address your needs.

Psychotherapy can have different goals: it can address a specific problem, like insomnia or anxiety; it can help people discover new ways of coping with difficult emotions or challenging life circumstances such as stress, low mood/depression, relationship problems, and trauma; or it can serve as a space for personal exploration and growth. Usually, it’s a combination of all three. We will work together to create a unique approach that works for you.

Deciding to enter therapy can be a challenging decision. The idea of talking about things that you may be struggling to understand yourself can feel daunting and intimidating.

People often ask, “how does therapy work?” Well, much of our daily life is rushed and focused on the needs of others. Therapy is a space that gives you the opportunity to focus on yourself. It’s a time where you can slow down, process, and make sense of the parts of your life that feel messy or cause stress.

By sharing my understanding of your concerns with the respect and thoughtfulness that it deserves, I hope to not only help you find insight and relief from these stressors, but achieve more gratifying relationships with yourself and others.

Choosing a therapist is an important decision, and the right fit is essential for meeting your therapeutic goals. I’m happy to provide complimentary phone consultations to answer any questions you might have, and see if I’m the right person to be of help to you.
