Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
The therapeutic relationship is vital for therapy to be effective. It is also important for the therapist to have great knowledge in the area of focus. Clients often benefit through treatment within the first few sessions. It is helpful to know your goals so that you could assess whether the treatment is helping the progress of reaching your goals.<br><br>I provide a relaxing, and non-judgmental atmosphere. In therapy, you will learn new skills including problem solving, assertiveness, and goal setting. You will learn to communicate more effectively, learn about your patterns, and manage your day-to-day living more effectively. Depending on your goals and needs, the approach used with be customized specifically for you.<br><br>I practice out of two locations: Sherman Oaks and Tarzana. I integrate both Cognitive Behavioral work and Thought Field Therapy into my practice. The latter is a very effective and quick approach for reducing and eliminating fears, anxiety, stress, obsessive compulsiveness, and trauma.
