This content was provided by Dr. Papikian "Dr. Harel's Bio Coming from a multi-ethnic family and growing up in turbulent places all over the globe, I developed a profound interest in human psyche and the desire to understand what makes us tick. Throughout my undergraduate studies in Israel, and later, during my graduate work in USA, I explored the field of psychology in search of therapy approaches that work well and work fast.??I became familiar with psycho-dynamic thinking and philosophy, humanistic approach to therapy, as well as cognitive behavioral therapy. I found these to be very valuable in understanding the complexity of human experience, however, neither one of these approaches offered an effective, versatile and comprehensive tools to assist clients in producing rapid and profound change. This left me wondering whether there is something else – a mind technology that would work well in the age of high-speed life-style; something that would allow for rapid, profound and lasting change. In my quest I came across NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and hypnosis.??I became fascinated with the richness of NLP and hypnosis. Both approaches are rooted in a monumental work of many profoundly gifted and renowned psychotherapists. My experience working with the most challenging populations and conditions proved the tremendous effectiveness of NLP in releasing past unresolved negative emotions, limiting decisions, and trauma, as well as helping clients build prosperous present and future through acquiring new resources, strategies, and tools. In NLP I found something that was effective, fast and sustainable. In other words, principles and technology based on NLP and hypnosis delivered results, rather than just "talked about it." My passion has always been working with couples of all backgrounds and configurations. After moving to Los Angeles and living in the beautiful and vibrant West Hollywood, I founded the Couples Empowerment Clinic. My mission is to bring the knowledge of NLP and the richness of my clinical experience to our LA community and apply it to the unique needs of couples and singles looking to create and sustain the beautiful relationship they desire. Watching my clients grow and prosper fulfills my purpose as well as the purpose of Couples Empowerment Clinic. We grow together.
