Larry Zucker, LCSW

I entered into the profession of psychotherapy first as a paraprofessional working with LA Shanti in the early 1990’s and then getting my degree in social work from the University of Southern California. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been in private practice for over ten years. Currently I provide supervision at the Southern California Counseling Center and in my private practice. My areas of interest are substance abuse, adoption, HIV/AIDS, and anxiety with a special focus on couple’s therapy. Additionally, I am an EMDR trained therapist and a member of EMDRIA.

I believe that it is impossible, for a mental health “expert” to be able to determine what is “psychologically healthy,” since there is no true measurement of mental health. Therefore the focus of my work is on “deconstruction.” To “deconstruct” means to examine what we believe to be true and carefully determine its usefulness and appropriateness from my client’s perspective.

I also believe that all of our thoughts and behaviors exist in cultural, religious, and social contexts that give them meaning and significance and that our views of ourselves are shaped through an unconscious process of filtering through our experiences and selecting those that are most aligned with the stories we hold about ourselves.
