Woman and Child

As a therapist in Los Angeles I have witnessed these vibrant and beautiful and complex identities who are a striking part of relationships and communication. Jungian therapy is a powerful medium in exploring the collective and community's unconscious ultimately bridging the gap to explore the world at large. If you have a moment, please watch

Assumptions and entitlement or an unknowing arrogance often places people in unwanted and unintended traps preventing the desired outcome of intimacy within a blended relationships.
