Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Sometimes you wonder how it ever got this bad. This is not what you thought your life would be like. Maybe you feel like your relationship is too good to leave, but too bad to stay. If you seem to be a magnet for people who are wrong for you, I completely understand. I have helped many men and women who used to attract partners who were completely wrong for them. There were times that the relationships got so bad that it affected their health. They are now in very satisfying and healthy relationships, and lead thriving lives. It doesn't have to be this way. Imagine what it would be like to actually create the life you always wanted. I can help you achieve that dream. I have done that for countless men and women and I can do that for you, too. In fact, I can eliminate your pain faster, by using art therapy in conjunction with traditional verbal therapy. The art therapy bypasses the conscious mind, which allows the issues to surface more quickly. I can help. Call me at 818-907-7732
