Licensed Clinical Psychologist


rsz kuntze 0138 - version 2

     I am a clinical psychologist and am licensed by the California Board of Psychology (PSY23832). I see clients in my private practice in West Los Angeles (Santa Monica, specifically).

    The underlying goal of therapy is to integrate thought, feeling, and action. To work toward this, I work from a relational psychodynamic framework, which means that my work focuses on relationship. We will explore the relationship between you and the people in your life—parents, children, siblings, friends, significant others. We will explore the relationship you have with yourself, as well as the relationship that develops between us over time. I will utilize the present moment to understand your experience in the world as we learn about your inner world together. Through this process you will have the opportunity to gain greater emotional awareness and psychological development, which can strengthen your sense of confidence, self-acceptance, and responsibility in daily life.

    My practice is open to anyone with a desire to improve their relationships. I specialize in working with individuals, couples, and other romantic configurations struggling in or out of love relationships. Throughout my many years of training, I have supported people of all ages and from various ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. I have significant experience working within the LGBTQQ community, the BDSM and sex work communities, the elderly, and individuals experiencing symptoms related to addiction, depression, relationship issues, and anxiety.
