Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I work well with all family configurations (including LGBT communities). When a union is formed, two cultures (the families of origin) come together to form your new family unit. Learn how to incorporate both cultures to make it your own. My clinical experience includes: pre-marital therapy, child and adolescent therapy, individual and family therapy, filial therapy (for traumat ized bonding in adoption),parenting consultation (including skills for "frazzled parents"),learn why children struggle, learn why parents struggle. I will help parents avoid the "parent trap" and learn clear steps to dramaitacally improve the quality of your relationship with your child and much more..... My theorectical approach balances psychodynamic insight (talking therapy) with cognitive restructuring. Additionally, I work closely with a psychiatrist who will support patients who are in need of medication. One will find my calm persona to be comforting. I will create the therapeutic space that is needed to build the trust that is essential for us to do successful work together. I also specialize in working with teens and young adults seeking help with the "coming out" process. I will support you in your journey. I also work with gay and lesbian couples, as well as individual therapy. If you are looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or, you are ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. Please call me (310-850-3685) or email ( individual, couples or family consultation today.
