John Buse, MA, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles
Sometimes we need a little help to reclaim or find our inner strength. I believe we all possess the wisdom to succeed somewhere within our psyche. My goal in therapy is to help clients overcome the obstacles that hinder them on their path. I tend to look for the strengths in individuals and my objective is to embrace each client without judgment in order to create a safe environment. I also believe it is important for one to feel heard and validated for their experience in order to move beyond their blocks.
I have several specialties: For relationships, I am a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist developed by Harville Hendrix. This process helps couples with communication, understanding and accepting different perspectives, and validating your partner's experience. I am also trained in Sex Addiction, Sex therapy, and am an EMDR practitioner.
John Buse is an MFT working with individuals, couples, adolescents, and groups in West Hollywood/Mid Wilshire area. In addition to being a therapist, John has assisted with Imago workshops for couples called, "Getting the Love You Want" for the past 10 years. I have Saturday appointments available.
