As you probably know through life experience, there are times when life can be enjoyable and easy, times when life can be middle of the road, and times when life can be painful and difficult. And, as you also know, sometimes the parts that are painful and difficult can be too painful, difficult, and confusing to clearly understand, manage, or solve by yourself. This is partly because it is difficult to see the picture when you’re inside its frame.

Sometimes, it can be helpful to receive guidance from a person outside yourself. However, even well-meaning assistance from family and friends can fall short of what you need, because it is difficult to be given the psychotherapy and counseling help you may often need from amateurs who are not a professional psychotherapist or counselor.

Fortunately, as I indicate on my Psychotherapy and Counseling website (, good psychotherapy and counseling with a well-trained, expertly skilled, and genuinely caring psychothrapit has the potential to be deeply rewarding and highly beneficial, and might possibly be a good solution!

I additionally indicate on my psychotherapy and counseling website, and want to clarify for you here in my psychotherapy and counseling blog, that psychotherapy and counseling is definitely NOT “just for weak and crazy people.” In reality, participating in psychotherapy and counseling actually requires strength and courage, and a deep desire to grow, heal, and improve.

Psychotherapy and counseling is a fabulous opportunity to work toward resolving personal problems and issues you may have, and to more clearly understand life, relationships, and yourself, all with my professional guidance and assistance as your caring and skilled psychotherapist and counselor, as you and I collaborate in psychotherapy and counseling as psychotherapist and client in order to help you create a happier and more satisfying life.

If you happen to have questions about psychotherapy and counseling or about myself as a psychotherapist and counselor, or if you happen to reside in Encino, Tarzana, Woodland Hills, Studio City, Sherman Oaks, or nearby Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley neighborhoods and want to set a psychotherapy and counseling appointment in the comfort of my peaceful Encino psychotherapy office, including or not including optional Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis, then we can start with an easy and simple INITIAL CONFIDENTIAL CONSULTATION FOR NO CHARGE, with no obligation.

I would be delighted to receive your phone call or email… I’m here to help you.
