"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've worked successfully with adults and adolescents for 20+ years. Many therapists are seasoned and technically sound, but to many clients, something still feels lacking. I receive repeated feedback regarding clients' appreciation of my nonjudgemental support and guidance, my ability to understand the great shame people feel about their relationships and lives. I have a knack for forming trusting relationships with teens, allowing them to experience open communication, which, over time, tends to replicate itself within the family system. I can help you with feelings of insecurity, anxiety, depression. I understand addiction issues and treatment strategies that work."

"We all experience difficulties at some point in our lives- this is part of being human. Some people are able to move on and some get "stuck" for reasons that are not always clear. Psychotherapy offers an opportunity to explore these reasons in a safe, accepting environment and inspires personal growth. Therapy itself can be short (a few sessions) or long term, and in successful cases its positive impact lasts a lifetime. For the last 15 years I've helped individuals who struggled with depression, anxiety, relationship or parenting issues, low self-esteem and more to reach their goals."
