"People refer to therapy as a science or practice-but I have come to view it as an art in the most exquisite form. Therapy is about expressing and emoting, and finding value in the internal and external relationships we create. My education and clinical experience has verified the depth of this "art," revealing knowledge that can be gained, healing of old scars, and magic that can ensue when self-love occurs. I am a firm believer that therapy is not a requirement for healthy living, but similar to music and film, it can add intrigue, deepen relationships, and significantly enhance the quality of life."

"I know a bunch of people who'll tell you that therapy is the best thing that ever happened to them. Not the people you hear talking about their therapists at parties though. Other people. Listen. We humans? We're great at pushing down painful feelings. Old childhood feelings, stuff that's happening today, anything that hurts, we make it disappear. We think. But we're wrong. Things don't disappear. They just get pushed down. This pushing down? We call it depression. The way it feels when we're having trouble keeping things pushed down? That's called anxiety."

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.

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.
