Laurence Rosenthal: Effective therapy and a compassionate style

 

What keeps you up at night? There are words for these things: Anxiety. Depression. Stress. Trauma. Relationship issues. But these words don't take into account the fullness of who you are - an individual striving to function in this world.

The thing is, it's impossible to see the whole picture when you're in the middle of the picture. That's where therapy helps.

Therapy offers you a broader perspective - to examine your thoughts, feelings, and ideas in a climate of curiosity and compassion, where together, we can create a deeper level of consciousness.

 

Therapy services include:

 

Clients often acknowledge that they can't seem to "let go." Well, it's hard to let go when you don't know why you're holding on. There are reasons things have come to be the way they are, and these reasons often exist beneath the level of consciousness. 

As a therapist, I try to enter your situation, as completely as I can, so that together, we may understand and appreciate how things are and came to be. From there, change can begin.

The relationship I develop with my clients is characterized by empathy and trust. With a style that draws from the philosophical to the practical, and sometimes the comical, the goal is to to maximize your potential and minimize your struggle.

 

 

 

Specializing in psychotherapy for creatives

In my career in the entertainment business, I have been an actor, writer, producer, director, development executive and story editor, as well as an honored screenwriting professor and published author.

These experiences allow me to share an informed frame of reference to the unique challenges that face creative personalities, writers, actors, directors, producers, and musicians, who navigate a particularly stressful and unsettling world, trying to balance work life with personal relationships.

My office is conveniently located in Beverly Hills, minutes from Century City and West Hollywood.  I have both evening and day time hours available.
