Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
In my practice the emotional healing power of empathetic understanding and relationship building meet the latest understandings in brain science. Advanced EMDR protocols, CBT, mindfulness and hypnosis are utilized in the context of a safe supportive relationship. Working with the mind — thinking, communicating, relating, feeling — can effect the brain in positive ways, including the way the brain functions neuro-physiologically. Where we start is up to you. Let’s explore the possibilities together. Call or email for a complementary telephone consultation. I use EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, hypnosis and other clinically tested methods in the context of a supportive therapeutic relationship. Go to my website to learn more about the techniques I use, my qualifications and the way I work. EMDRwest.com. I would be happy to talk to you about your specific situation.

Bennett Portnoy, MA

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist 
Los Angeles, CA 90064

I have helped hundreds of couples recognize the hidden obstacles that cause pain in their relationship and learn the skills needed to deepen the quality of their relationship as well as resolve conflict. For over twenty five years I have been working with heterosexual and gay couples. I do not believe in a one -size- fits- all approach to therapy.
