Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
When we run out of inner resources and our regular support systems are not able to give us what we need, a professional can help us change what can be changed. Both children and adults need guides into new territory. I see my job as providing a nurturing environment for exploration of self and self in relation to others. Whatever our age, we are creative beings and follow unique paths. With compassion, life wisdom and a sense of humor we can find solutions to everyday problems, integrate the past and imagine the future. For some of us, our capacities for living life more fully have been restricted. To open to new possibilities, I offer my clients a steady presence, over 35 years of experience in the field and my love of the work.

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.
