Leal Abbott Psychotherapy Woodland, CAI have been a psychotherapist for more than 40 years and was trained at Adelphi University. The major Focus was Ego Psychology and the Systems approach. Everyone is interconnected, so no matter what we do, we influence others and are influenced by them.

We work on taking responsibility for your own life choices by dealing with childhood wounds as well as issues that have arisen in your adult life. Most wounds have been the result of some significant relationship. We then heal those wounds through the power of our relationship.

I have been exposed to many other therapeutic theories, parts of which I have Incorporated, including, Jungian therapy where we work on integrating your “light” and “dark” sides so that you can become whole.

I also do short-term, problem-solving therapy, which is cognitively based.
