Are you feeling lost and alone in your struggles? There are times in life when we need guidance, education and support to navigate through difficult experiences. I recall the saying, "It takes a village to raise a child". I believe we need a village around us for a lifetime. Why go it alone when there are others to help? We are social beings after all. As a therapist, I use an eclectic approach pulling from various methods to best meet your individual needs. I also work closely with other practitioners as needed. My clients often find me to be relaxed, empathic and nurturing, often using humor as a healing element.

Hello, My name is Michelle and I am a Licensed professional clinical counselor (LPCC) with over 10 years of experience working in the social services field. I started off with humble beginnings and grew up in a low-income community as a first generation born Vietnamese American and have first hand experience of the complex needs of vulnerable populations. My upbringing also taught me the power of resilience, setting boundaries, believing in “come backs,” taking ownership, rewriting narratives, asserting needs and unburdening ourselves of past hurts.

We first offered teletherapy in 2018, and since then, clients from 12 to 93 have been pleasantly surprised. Busy folks appreciate not rushing around in traffic. Parents and caregivers are relieved to honor their own well-being while just a room away from the loved ones in their care. These days, teletherapy is all we do. If you have an internet connection and a phone or computer, you can do teletherapy. Schedule an appointment and you'll receive a packet of forms via email to read and sign right on your screen. You'll also receive e-mail confirmation with the day and time of your therapy session and the link you'll click to join.

Accepting new clients and afternoon appts available! Going to school or work can be terrifying for some. We can get stuck in habits keeping us from living productive lives and forming healthy relationships. Many of my clients struggle with making/keeping friends, effective communication, and handling teasing, bullying, rejection. My focus is helping adolescents and young adults with anxiety, depression, peer-related and/or behavioral struggles build skills and confidence. My clients are supported, not judged. They're given tools, not just talk therapy. My clients are intentionally guided while bringing the pieces back together.

I consider myself to be a “down to earth” therapist who genuinely connects to clients on a person to person level. We explore together to see what approach is right for you, and therapy is truly a collaborative process. You can feel comfortable to be yourself and be vulnerable with me and that within itself is often healing. If you reach out, I guarantee a call or email back on the same day you reach out so we can connect and see if we are a good fit.

Hello! For 30+ years I have been both a therapist and an academic researcher, studying depression and emotion self-regulation. My perspective is scientifically informed but my focus is on the personal journey of therapy, which can be deeply rewarding and even life changing. The problems that clients bring to me vary widely and I take a collaborative, non judgmental approach toward meeting the needs of each individual. Together, we work to develop a picture of what holds them back and formulate strategies for moving toward personal goals. My greatest satisfaction is seeing a client build a life of greater ease and fulfillment.

I see you over there, checking me out. Hi! My name is Lisa. My passion for helping people kicked into high gear after experiencing Alzheimer’s of a grandparent and meeting families with ill children when volunteering at Children’s Hospital of L.A. We all need a little help now and then and nobody should feel ashamed to ask for it. I love meeting clients’ “furry children” since pets are a wonderful emotional support – I have two. I enjoy sweets (guilty pleasure – we all have one), I believe in self-care (yoga, meditation, walks outside and playing music) and love comedy since laughter helps!
