Most likely you have arrived at this site because you want something. You may be curious about psychotherapy but you may also be in pain. What psychotherapy does is to relieve pain, whether it is anxiety, depression, self criticism or compulsions. Whatever it may be I will find a way to relieve it. Everyone is different and therefore each person requires a unique and specific set of solutions that fit with their particular personality and vision about who they want to be.
My approach to Psychotherapy is about making your experience exactly the way you need it to be for YOU. So you understand the reasons for your behavior, your beliefs about yourself, your distortions and your fears. By working together as a team we can find a way through your pain and unhappiness to reach a place that is more self-accepting and supportive to your personal goals.
With over 30 years experience as a licensed psychotherapist and marriage and family therapist in Los Angeles, I have had success treating individuals and couples with a wide range of behavioral and emotional issues. So please take some time to learn more about me, my professional approach, my writing and how psychotherapy works. Then, if you like what you see give me a call for a free consultation (310) 277-4042.
