Ossi is one of a few Certified Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist in the Los Angeles area. She is also extensively trained in The Gottman Couples Method as well.
Ossi is dedicated to your success and growth. Whether it’s understanding and identifying your triggers, reactions, negative cycles, and patterns; improving your interpersonal relationships of communication, active listening, boundary setting, taking ownership, and repairing ruptures/injuries; or gaining the necessary tools for you to be and feel empowered in your life, Ossi is committed to helping you achieve your therapeutic needs.
Ossi’s style uses compassion, warmth, intuition, optimism, humor, and collaboration. She is active in therapy, and although she finds listening to be incredibly important, she’s known to challenge her clients, highlight where they’re stuck, and encourage their transformation.
Loving the work I do...
I love being a therapist. I am in constant awe of the capacity that humans have for self-transformation. I love watching my clients shift and change….shaking off old patterns and becoming the people they know themselves to be deep down. I am exceedingly privileged to do this work. My clients inspire me by their courage to show up – because at a fundamental level they know they deserve, and can really have, a better life.
