Marya Samuelson, MEd, LPCC, Counselor in Los Angeles
It's important to find the right therapist. If you can find someone that you are comfortable with, who understands your experiences, who really gets you, it will be a good fit. Research shows that a quality relationship, more than anything else, is what makes therapy successful in the long run and will create effective and lasting change. To see if I am the right therapist for you, read more about my approach on my website ( to see what it may be like to work with me.
My specialty is on paying close attention to not only what you are telling me, but even more importantly, to what you are not telling me that is being said non-verbally, from the unconscious.
I have advanced training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy and am a candidate training in psychoanalysis. This approach considers the influence of factors that are outside a person's daily awareness and helps people develop a deeper understanding of themselves and what is in their way, so they can make better choices.
