Takes Many Forms

How much it lives in your
That can change.
I am a Los Angeles and Beverly Hills-based psychologist and psychoanalyst. I specialize in treating childhood trauma in all of its forms. Sometimes trauma is subtle. Sometimes trauma is not.
What you do know is this: your symptoms are hard to live with. And, you’re beginning to wonder what exactly is causing them.
We can find out.
Everyone comes to psychotherapy with a very particular childhood history of relationships, traumas, and losses. These are “remembered” in your body, behaviors, in the places where you are stuck.
Your symptoms are small parts of your history. They remind you that the past still lives inside. The psychoanalytic form of psychotherapy I practice offers a detailed focus on whatever symptoms you bring.
In therapy, we’ll talk. And as we do, we’ll think about your symptoms. We’ll work out what parts of your history, experiences, memories, and early relationships exist at their unconscious roots.
You don’t have to live this way. Symptoms can be understood. Change is possible, even for problems you’ve had a long time.
There are answers. And, psychotherapy will help.
Psychotherapy frees you from what stands in the way of love; creative work; and doing what you’re meant to do. Most importantly, from the worries and self-judgments that have interfered with your confidence and success.
