Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Imagine beyond your struggles or limitations to become who you are truly meant to be. Sometimes in our lives as we try to be as authentic and connected to ourselves, others, and our passions, we may find ourselves stuck in patterns of fears, confusion, or indecision. This stuckness and suffering hinders us from experiencing the empowered, expansive, creative, organic self within; the organic self that wants to express the unique gift that you are, and the gifts you bring to the world. The purpose of my work and my passion is to facilitate in a safe non-judgmental way, healing and reconnection to your more expansive genuine self, so that you may manifest your life's purpose.

Bennett Portnoy, MA, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
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.
