Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Do you feel like you are running on empty--that you are weary from conficts and heartache, losses and challenges? Well it can be different!!! With a skilled Therapeutic partner, the fear that this sadness and helplessness is your story will begin to ease and change. It would be my privilege to offer you a safe, non-judgmental, support collaboration where you will explore and overcome the obstacles that stand between you and a greater sense of clarity, strength and resilience. Whether your issues are long-term or recent, we will integrate your inherent self-knowledge as you segue from confusion to awareness to choice. As a therapist of considerable clinical as well as personal life experience, I will bring wisdom, warmth, and astute intuition into our theoretically ecletic, yet strength-based and solution-focused therapeutic relationship. I am happy to offer a free initial 15-minute telephone consultation. Take your next positive step toward and call (310) 749-2585 or e-mail marlenemft@gmail.com to arrange a muutally-convenient time.
