I earned my undergraduate degree at Brown University in 1999 and received my masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from USC in 2006. I trained as a psychotherapist at the Maple Counseling Center in Beverly Hills before launching my private practice. I received my California MFT License in 2009 after completing 3000 hours of training and passing two state licensing exams.
MY FAMILY HISTORY
I come from a long line of dedicated mental health professionals. My mother, Susan Nord, is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Santa Monica who specializes in couples and parenting. My sister, Dr. Jessica Nord, is a UCLA trained psychiatrist who specializes in the treatment of insomnia and women's health. My grandmother was a psychoanalyst in Boston for over 50 years and my father is a retired physician.
I have been in private practice for nearly 15 years and have provided 13,000 hours of psychotherapy to individual adults and couples in Los Angeles and Santa Monica. I am an active member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT) and I am licensed by the California Board of Behavioral Science to practice psychotherapy as a treatment for mental health issues.
My approach to therapy is based on the field of Psycho-dynamic Psychotherapy with a focus on couples, male depression, anxiety, and parenting. You can read a more detailed description of my approach here.
