Elizabeth (Betsy) McBride, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Torrance
We all want to feel good about ourselves. We want positive healthy relationships and live our lives as fully as possible. But sometimes life or relationships can become difficult and overwhelming. People come to therapy because they want to feel better. I respect the courage it takes to reach out for help in seeking a greater understanding of yourself and to work toward personal growth. My role as a therapist is to help you overcome the obstacles keeping you from feeling the way you want and from fully enjoying your life.
Whether you are looking to build self-esteem, repair a relationship, deal with a life transition or overcome sadness/anxiety, I will help you to achieve your goals. I provide a safe, nonjudgmental space where you are able to grow and to achieve the positive relationships you have always wanted.
I offer therapy that is tailored to you and your specific needs. Rather than dwelling on problems, my focus is on building strength, resilience and finding practical solutions. I want to help you find the tools to positively transform your life.
