My staff and I create a warm, safe and caring environment.  I believe you will find Hope Therapy Center in Burbank a source for positive change, growth and healing, different from any other previous therapy experience. Many clients tell us this has been their best therapy experience.

As a Gottman Trained Couples Therapist, a large focus of my work has been helping couples improve communication, build a stronger relationship and learn effective ways to repair their relationship. I especially enjoy working with couples with pre-marital counseling, utilizing Prepare and Enrich curriculum and teaching the tenants of Gottman couples therapy to establish a sound framework to create a satisfying and lasting relationship.

I am a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist in the state of California and founder of Hope Therapy Center specializing in the treatment of depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder in adolescents and adults. I specialize in working with the theories that improve relationship and individual functioning.

OUR MISSION

We will bring you hope, a belief in your strengths and confidence that you can create positive change in your life. When you are ready to explore, grow and change, we will be here for you.

Why therapy? Why now?

In Los Angeles, we sometimes realize it can be hard to find a place where we can truly be heard and understood, to feel supported, to have the courage to make the necessary changes to increase our satisfaction with life, relationships, work and other challenges.

Therapy may just be the answer you have been searching for to help you cope with life’s challenges and to find a safe space to be heard and understood.
