Relationships bring happiness, but also create longing and loneliness. They can preoccupy us and destroy our sense of safety and self-respect. If you feel stuck, overwhelmed, afraid, or lost, or are unable to decide about staying or leaving, have resolvable conflicts, unmet needs, or feel devalued, I can help - also if you seek guidance with codependency, trauma, communication, intimacy or self-esteem. You'll gain awareness in your first session, then quickly see changes in handling emotions, conflict, and boundaries. Whether seeking individual or couple counseling, you'll find solutions, empower, and an improved sense of well-being

I assume you want a therapist who doesn’t try to fit you into a diagnosis and just treat your symptoms. And you don’t want a therapist who lacks experience treating individuals who may have recurring anxiety, depression, loneliness, an alcohol or drug problem, who often avoids closeness or chooses the wrong person to fall in love with and then can’t let go. You also want a therapist whom you respect and is friendly and who senses when you might be speaking falsely and thinking irrationally. And you especially want a therapist who can help you make sure your choices are in keeping with the needs and values of your higher self.

I believe anxiety and stress to be the foundation of many issues we all face. My first goal is to help my patients reduce stress thereby decreasing chronic pain, depression and even the ravages of disease and illness. By developing rapport and trust and then utilizing healthy coping skills, the goal of anxiety reduction can be achieved. Its important to remember that we are engaged in a collaborative process where we learn to accept, resolve, move on and let go. I find that mindfulness, meditation and breathing is highly effective in decreasing anxiety and depression.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in 90402, this list of Teletherapyists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in 90402 listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 90402 are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 90402

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 90402 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 90402 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 90402 or family therapy in 90402.
