Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Sylvia Cary, MFT, has two major specialties – addiction and creativity. She is the author of four books, five educational videos, and has published dozens of articles. Sylvia has taught classes on addiction and writing; has been a repeat guest lecturer at the Betty Ford Center; and serves on the Advisory Board of Men's Fitness magazine as a specialist in addictive behavior. Her article, “8 Perks of Getting Published for Therapists,” appeared in the March/April 2004 issue of The Therapist. She was awarded CAMFT’S Clark Vincent Award for her literary contributions to the mental health profession. Cary’s editorial and “book doctor” business, Therapists Who Write (www.TherapistsWhoWrite.com), focuses on helping psychotherapists and others in the healing professions get published: “Many therapists have a book inside of them and I help them get it out -- because getting published is good for business,” she says.

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.
