Welcome! ! am so glad you have discovered my website and are considering engaging in what can only be described as a wonderful journey of self discovery. My name is Carol and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist as well as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor who works with individuals, couples and families in the Toluca Lake and surrounding areas.
I am well acquainted that life can sometimes feel unpredictable and seem as if it has an agenda of its own. In some way, we become captive to its intent and its whim. Relationships become gridlocked. Friendships are betrayed. Hearts get broken. Unforeseen circumstances derail plans and losses occur. Violations to our emotions, our body, our soul leave us feeling powerless and without a clear sense of direction. Feelings of depression, anxiety, alienation, loneliness or sorrow end up distorting our perception and muddy the mirror that reflect the true nature of our soul. However, that is not the end of the story.
Carl Jung clearly articulated the principle that drives my passion both as an individual and a therapist, ‘I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.’
I understand your current circumstances may feel overwhelming and the investment of time and money prohibitive. A desire to find the magic wand that instantly waves away confusion and pain is common. Unfortunately, there are no shortcuts to healing and growth. What I do know beyond a shadow of a doubt is that you possess the internal fortitude to heal. Whatever your current struggle, therapy has the potential to provide you an unparalleled experience in your desire to heal and thrive.
As your therapist, my sole purpose is to enter into your experience and collaborate with you, the expert, on your life. I am here to assist as you explore and discover obstacles that keep you feeling stagnant and find ways to re-empower yourself. I promise to create a safe place where you can rediscover hope and find tools to overcome the emotional obstacles that have become barriers to your sense of wellbeing and freedom.
Please feel free to explore my website and if there are any questions I can address, do not hesitate to contact me at 818-583-7105. I am here to help.
