Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Feeling stuck is a crisis situation where change for better or worse is possible. In my previous professions, as an attorney and studio executive in the entertainment industry, I spent a great deal of time working with people and projects in crisis. Often after others had failed. Putting back together that which was about to blow apart became my unofficial specialty. As a psychotherapist, I’m now doing what I’m supposed to be doing. It’s gratifying to see this reflected in the eyes and changed lives of my patients. Depression, anxiety disorders and malfunctioning relationships are no fun for anyone to live with, especially if that "anyone" is you.
