Most people come to this site because they are looking for help. You may be curious about psychotherapy but you may also be in pain. Psychotherapy is intended to help individuals and couples relieve different forms of emotional pain. Emotional pain can be as severe as physical pain but we can’t see it or know where it is coming from or how to heal it. Different types of emotional pain may include anxiety, depression, self-criticism, shame, compulsions and painful relationships. Everyone is unique and requires a specific set of solutions that fit with their particular personality and vision for their lives and their future.
My approach to Psychotherapy is to provide an experience that is fashioned specifically for YOU. I want you to understand the reasons for your behavior, your beliefs about yourself, your internal distortions and your fears. By working together as a team we will create a method that works for you, so you can reach a place inside that is more 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. If you wish to make an appointment or have questions please call (310) 277-4042.
