"My practice is exclusively "distance therapy," online or over the phone. I only work with adults, 25 and up, and residents of California. My approach is very focused on what is best for the person receiving care. Distance therapy is best for people who are not dealing with severe issues like debilitating anxiety, depression, or trauma. My approach always focuses on empathy and creating lasting change. As a psychoanalyst, I work in an in-depth way that tries to take seriously what is happening outside of awareness. I provide online therapy (min. 1x/wk) and psychoanalysis, long-term work at multiple times per week. "

"Dr. Embrey has practiced psychotherapy in Europe for 15 years and in California since 1990, emphasizing the possibilities of making life better. He has been educated in England and Sweden as well as his doctorate in California. Many choices in life are difficult. Trying to understand our choices, what motivates them and seeing clearly the patterns of our life is the start of choosing a new direction for ourselves or our relationships. I understand how to produce change. I work with individuals and couples mostly, with the utmost care, respect and consideration of situations we find ourselves in."

"I believe the relationship of trust between therapist and client is as important as the theoretical approach used. You probably have specific issues that you are struggling with that have brought you to therapy. To share one's concerns with a caring, empathic individual with no stake in the outcome is curative in itself. You develop self-understanding and create a roadmap that will bring about a new way of being that transcends the initial problem. In an utterly safe way I help you untangle each challenge and difficulty thereby providing increasingly greater feelings of mastery and freedom for you."
