"How does your need for certainty play out? Does it force you to try to predict? Does it persuade you to declare things that you don't actually know? Perhaps the need for certainty is powerful enough to rob you of genuine moments with loved ones or with yourself. Research finds that people who take risks (those who step into the unknown) are happier than those who merely reach for reward or gratification. Why? Because healthy risk-taking has rewards sewn into the experience when we authentically try. It builds skills in self-advocacy, self-love and self-worth."

"I think that in many ways, mainstream culture opposes our aliveness. Our belonging suffers because of the narrow boxes prescribed to us. If you feel stunted, stuck, or like you can't get it together, I don't believe there is anything wrong with you; I believe that you've adapted to a context. As an embodiment-based, relational therapist with a neurobiological lens, I am here to help in the exploration of YOU with curiosity and presence. I believe we are multifaceted beings, with a lot more energetic real estate than we give ourselves credit for. Our work will address self-defeating beliefs and focus on fostering more creative ones."

Family Therapy
If you're looking for family therapy in Los Angeles or for a Los Angeles family therapist these professionals provide family therapy services and structural family therapy services. They include family therapists and marriage family therapists. Therapists in Los Angeles using the techniques of 'family therapy' (also referred to as marriage and family therapy and family counseling) view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Los Angeles are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Los Angeles

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Los Angeles you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Los Angeles and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Los Angeles or family therapy in Los Angeles.
