Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am primarily interested in depth psychotherapy and in sandplay for children and adults. I worked in schools before becoming a psychotherapist (MS, Early Childhood Education, 1975), and have over 25 years of experience working with children and families. Additionally, I have a committed meditation practice of over 15 years. This practice informs my work as a therapist; spirituality is a strong area of interest, and I feel qualified to work with people on related issues. My experience as a therapist has included working with children and parents on issues of trauma and abuse, developmental issues, and parenting issues; working with women with a history of trauma and/or domestic violence; and working with individuals and couples with general relationship issues.

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.
