Larchmont Associates
Larry Zucker, LCSW

I have been working with individuals, couples, and families at Larchmont Associates since 1992, and have been in private practice for 10 years before that. I received my Masters in Social Work from Boston University in 1982, followed by three years of post-graduate training in couple and family therapy at the Kantor Family Institute in Boston. I’ve trained family therapists for many years in both clinic and university settings. Currently, I am faculty at the Southern California Counseling Center and adjunct faculty at Antioch University Los Angeles. I am a clinical member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) and am an AAMFT Approved Supervisor.

My background in social work and community organizing has trained me to see people in context, and to focus on strength and resiliency. Treating life’s problems as if they reside in people or in families tends to create therapy relationships that feel blaming of who we are, where we come from, or what we are made of, and tend to be constraining of the sorts of lives we can imagine and create. Rather than see people as problematic, I prefer to see people as embedded in normal problems of living. I see people as full of untapped skill and knowledge for creating the lives and relationships they want despite difficulties encountered, and I see therapy as a relationship that helps bring forth that skill and knowledge.
