"Most of the people I work with are adults seeking weekly individual therapy. Typically they are in high-stress, high-responsibility careers and struggling to balance the demands of work, love, and family. Common themes are: anxiety and depression, relationship trouble, work burn-out, addictions, early childhood formations that impede happiness, persistent feelings of anger, sadness, fear, or detachment, and yearnings for personal growth. We tackle the issues that stand in the way of a better, more fulfilling life."

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Torrance using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Torrance are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Torrance you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Torrance and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Torrance or family therapy in Torrance.
