Brian Carpenter, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles
I love working with individuals (including adolescents), couples, and families. I address such questions as: Are you having difficulties in your relationships? Do you experience anxiety or depression? Do you just want to feel better about yourself and reach your full potential? In addition, I'm especially qualified to help Creative and LGBT people. Are you a Creative person with very high standards for yourself or who has a hard time dealing with rejection? As a long-time member of SAG-AFTRA, I help you to recognize that being creative is hard and to strive for excellence instead of "perfection."
Are you an LGBT person who struggles with coming out, doubts your own self-worth, believes others' negative opinions, or is affected by prejudice and discrimination? I help LGBT folks to be proud of who they are and to empower themselves.
And I'm qualified to perform EMDR therapy, which can be an effective tool in dealing with disturbing memories, phobias, performance anxiety, stress reduction. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions about whether it could be appropriate for you.
