Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Beginning therapy takes courage, time and effort. But just as often it may simply be about the need for a different perspective. As a therapist trained in psychodynamics and family systems, I work both with adult women and men as individuals. But I am also a marriage/family therapist who is very familiar with the problems and solutions available to couples struggling with midlife crises, falling in love, job loss, death of a loved one or the end of marriage. These disruptive and painful adjustments, when taken up willingly with an open and honest attitude, can ultimately enrich our lives in surprising ways.

I spent 20 years as a professional actor in the theater before becoming a therapist and I found a kind of seamlessness in my study of life’s unfolding dramas, which manifest themselves both internally and externally.

Incidentally, for those individuals drawn to working with their dreams and the unconscious, I am a Jungian Analyst certified through the Los Angeles Institute.

My office is located in Encino where I have been in private practice for 18 years.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
