Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
In my private practice in West Los Angeles, I help individuals, couples and families heal traumas, solve conflicts, and create more fulfilling lives and relationships. I received my Masters in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute and additional training in many practices, with special emphasis on parenting, dreamwork, and family therapy. I prefer to explore multiple layers of human experience from soul to ego to family to community to society to history, using a range of theoretical lenses. An African American, I have collaborated therapeutically with people from a wide range of ethnic groups and national origins including Armenian, Cambodian, Indian, Persian, Native American, Mexican American, Jewish, European, and African American. As a writer and former filmmaker, I am especially interested in issues of creativity and in the way creativity, once unleashed, can transform the very act of living for people who do not think of themselves as artists.
