Walter Greenberg, PhD, Psychologist in Los Angeles
Are you tired of starting each day depressed, stressed, or scared? The simple, but difficult act of calling for help, is certain to begin to decrease those negative feelings. In therapy I don't just sit and listen. It is an interactive process of listening, talking and questioning. The purpose is to decrease pain and suffering, increase understanding and promote growth and change. First is a careful examination of your current situation as well as some review of your life and family history. This assessment allows us to see your strengths and vulnerabilities so we can outline a successful strategy.
In my practice I often deal with recent and long ago traumatic experiences. These types of experiences often lead to shutting down, with feelings of depression and anxiety. This can result in damaged relationships, substance abuse and isolation. While pain in life is sometimes unavoidable, suffering is almost always optional.
As one of the ancient Greeks said "It is not the events in life that matter, but rather our beliefs about them." I work with people to reduce their experience of suffering. Then we can work on increasing happiness, satisfaction,joy and contentment.
