Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a client-centered therapist. My goal is to provide you with a safe and secure environment so that I can help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is what you want it to be. We obviously cannot change difficult situations of the past, but we can work together to learn from them in order to better understand and resolve current challenges in your life. Someone recently described me as a "concierge therapist". This person explained that they appreciated that I truly customized my approach to fit them specifically rather than trying to apply a one-size-fits all therapy type. By applying eclectic and complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be currently holding you back in some way. In addition, we will spend time exploring what your vision is for how you would like your life to be, now and in the future. As we do, this will very likely help you to develop a newer and more expanded vision of yourself and increase your chances of experiencing a more meaningful, happy, and fulfilling life. Over the years, both new and ongoing clients often report that it seems to be very easy to establish a rapport with me. They appreciate that my style is down-to-earth and conversational. So, if you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to explore a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. I invite you to call me at (310) 208-3105. I am more than happy to answser any questions you may have about my practice.
