Individual Counseling

The most important key to therapeutic success is in the relationship you build with your therapist.  Because many of us do not have the experience of healthy relationships early in life, we are left feeling anxious, depressed, angry, ashamed, and unable to form healthy bonds with others.  I strive to create a safe, supportive, nonjudgmental, and client-centered environment in which our relationship can flourish and healing can occur.
My approach is to help you gain awareness of and explore difficult thoughts, feelings, and experiences that have been preventing you from being comfortable with who you are, what you want, and the richness of relationships you desire to have with others.  As no two people are alike, I use a variety of therapeutic modalities that are carefully crafted to the individual needs of my clients.  Most people find this work quite challenging, yet instrumental in their search for a healthier emotional life.  To begin this process, please call me for a free telephone consultation at 323.666.0010
