My name is Murray Kaufman, I have over 30 years expertise in the Counseling and Hypnotherapy field. My specialties are Depression, Anxiety, Relationship issues, and Life Transitions.

As a National Board Certified Fellow in Clinical Hypnotherapy, I utilize Clinical Hypnosis/Hypnotherapy for those conditions where this approach is beneficial.

I also offer Marriage/Relationship Counseling and Family Counseling for partners who want to make their relationship a happier one, and for family members who want to strengthen their bond with each other. My work during my internships included working as a peer Counselor/Trainer with Kara, an agency specializing in services for people coping with grief and the terminally ill. I also served as Clinical Director for Mateo Lodge Inc. in Redwood City, Ca. treating clients coping with severe mental illness, including Schizophrenia and Bi-Polar Disorder. Subsequent to my licensing in 1994, I held positions as Clinical Director with other agencies both in California, and New Jersey. I am currently Program Manager of Shields for Families’ Ark Program, an outpatient facility for Drug and Alcohol rehabilitation.

I have a private practice in Irvine, CA.,(Irvine Counseling and Hypnosis) and (Southern California Hypnosis) where I am privileged to assist individuals, couples,and families in finding more joy in their lives.
