Professional statement

Michael Rudin is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who welcomes young adults, adults, and seniors to his practice in Los Angeles, CA. Clients who visit Michael will find him easy to talk with, accessible, sincere, non-judgmental, and interested in their well-being. In sessions, he thinks firstly in terms of past connections, events and coping mechanisms which may influence the client's present experience. He presents as warm, supportive, present and direct.

Additionally, Michael has prior life experience in the business world, having owned his own businesses in the furniture design and interior design industries. His educational background, in addition to clinical psychology, is in history and art history – both of China, Japan and Europe. He has creative experience in art and design.

Michael's office is located in Westwood, on the Westside of Los Angeles, and in a courtyard building. The office is quiet and peaceful. He also offers phone sessions and remote sessions, if needed, though he does find that in-person, direct contact is the best.

Michael looks forward to meeting you and to helping you to discover more about yourself and what's on your mind, making your life easier, and empowering you to feel more free.


Message to clients

Perhaps I can help. I provide a safe place for you to be yourself and to talk about what's on your mind. Perhaps you are seeking therapy for something specific--for example, because you may feel blocked in making a move or a change. Perhaps you'd like to learn more about yourself. In expressing your feelings and your concerns, perhaps we can discover some past connections, feelings or methods of coping which may not be serving you. Talking about what's on your mind can lead to more understanding. Perhaps I can help you in taking a journey together, connecting some dots and, perhaps, helping you to feel more free and more you.
