Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Life Works Counseling offers a brief, solution-focused, present-day approach to therapy. You can learn how to remedy problems and overcome the barriers that get in the way of experiencing satisfaction in life without spending thousands of dollars and years in therapy. In fact, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (what this kind of therapy is called) is considered the treatment of choice for: depression, mood swings, phobias, marital or relationship issues, depression, self-esteem, anxiety & stress-management, weight control among others. I specialize in treating individuals and couples struggling with the issues named in the above list. For those interested, I offer hypnosis as an optional, but helpful adjunct. Hypnosis is useful in reducing stress, stopping smoking, weight control, sports performance, pain management, performance anxiety to list just a few applications. Professional Memberships are held in the California Association of Marriage Therapists, Association for Advancement of Behavior Therapy, American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, American Counseling Association and in the Southern California Society of Clinical Hypnosis
