There is a saying, "In youth, we run into difficulties. In old age, difficulties run into us." Sometimes life can be really hard. Even the strongest individual may need support and guidance in dealing with unexpected circumstances, or in managing conflict and personal challenges. I believe that through safe, reassuring, and compassionate therapy, clients can work through any struggle, connect to their best authentic selves, and achieve long-term growth and personal transformation.

NOT TAKING NEW CLIENTS CURRENTLY, PLEASE CHECK AGAIN IN LATE OCTOBER We all experience sadness, anxiety, anger, and other negative emotions, but at a certain point, these emotions become more of a burden than we can bear, and can affect our normal functioning; our relationships, jobs, schoolwork, and personal lives as a whole can suffer.

At various times in their lives people need help in recognizing what they want and are not getting. In an atmosphere of safety and support, we will look at patterns and beliefs that prevent each person from feeling cohesive and understood. We will also look at patterns that trigger feelings of depression, anger and anxiety, as well as longings that may be shameful and out of awareness. With support and understanding shame can be dealt with and reduced leading to a life that is less isolated and anxiety ridden.

Often in the pursuit of happiness, we are so focused on a destination that there is little joy in our journey.  We work so hard to attain career, relationship, degree or professional aspirations that the outcome is not worth the personal sacrifice. The loss of excitement in our dreams can be diminishing and frustrating, taking the magic and excitement out of life. Therapy can help demystify how you’ve arrived at this particular place in life, how you’ve lost your passion or questioned your values. Therapy can support you in regaining the magic of your life and bringing your dreams into the present.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Los Angeles, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

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
