Bruce A Howard, Psychologist  in Santa Monica
“Individuals contact me because they are feeling joyless, depressed, hopeless or have unexplainable mood swings. Some are constantly worried, anxious, or panicked and may not know why, or how to calm themselves. Others struggle with chronic feelings of being inadequate or deficient and not feeling worthy of receiving positive recognition. Some are troubled by how over-reactive they can be to people, events or circumstances in their life. Others feel little control over their behavior whether it is outbursts of anger, or the use of alcohol, gambling, sex or food. And some have difficulty achieving and sustaining friendships or intimate relationships.

Aaron R Kipnis, Psychologist  in Santa Monica
“Life presents us all with unexpected challenges. Sometimes we need help facing them. We often need a mirror to help us understand how to change outdated behaviors or patterns that are just not working. I have recovered well from a lot of trauma in early life. I feel that experience, along with my good training, helps me face the real depth of suffering many clients endure. We are more than our pain, however, and possess a capacity for profound joy and fulfillment. So, exploring life beyond it's apparent limits is as important as facing the dark together.

Peter N. Maduro, Psychologist  in Santa Monica
“Your emotions are at the center of who you are as a person. If you feel your feelings as distinctive, you feel your individuality. If you feel without too much evasion, you feel genuine and alive as a person, and so on.. Equally central to your emotional life, and to your personhood, is human relationship. Your relationships with others have and continue to shape your experience of emotion, and your sense of self. When others see, value, and enjoy your feelings, you are seen, valued and enjoyed in the world. So, let's talk about feelings and relationships.

Marriage & Family Therapist, MA
“The ideal setting for therapy is a caring environment that allows genuine sharing and exploration along with the active participation of the therapist. This way, the patient has the opportunity to explore current life difficulties and examine them in a new perspective. Sometimes it is helpful to look back at early life relationships and see how they influence present day feelings, thoughts, and actions. With couples I am able to enhance communication skills by working to resolve the push-pull that creates distance and conflict, calmly helping my patients face challenges with compassion and a nurturing sense of humor.

“Embrace life. Laugh again. Restore joy. Often we struggle in silence believing change is not possible. Those around you tell to get over it, move on or even stop talking about it. However, talking to the right person can be transformational. Through therapy, you will be able to regain those parts of your self that have been lost or neglected, creating change that will make a difference in your life.
