For 36 years, I have discovered the importance of having many psychotherapy techniques available to help people succeed in their lives. No one psychotherapy tool fits everyone and every life-event. Some work better with analytic, thinking and talking tools. Others grow faster with art, stress management even hypnotherapy or neurolinguistic programming. Emotion-based therapies can provide relief, caring healing and recovery. Nutritional and fitness counseling can be essential to alter emotional, mental and personal stress for some. Life Coaching and counseling can aim directly toward solutions and skills improvements. No one tool fits all. DrCarolFrancis.com 310-543-1824

A high level of trust and comfort for you in psychotherapy is a must. Working with an experienced therapist you can rely upon to listen skillfully will help you to learn to to lift negative moods, become a better problem solver, or improve relationships. Can simply sharing your problems with a therapist be enough to help you improve? I often hear from new patients that they were dissappointed in prior therapy because they were not helped to foucus and to use specific tools that not only made them feel better in therapy, but also in their lives. Therapy should be designed to help you learn at you own, most effective pace for you.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist 85860

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

Sometimes the harder try to connect, the more distant and lonely you end up feeling. Yet you keep using the same ineffective strategies, because what else can you do? Or maybe you give up. You are probably spending enough time and effort already trying to make it work — you’re just doing it in the wrong way. I can help you channel your efforts more successfully using emotionally focused therapy (EFT).

My approach to therapy is tailored to your individual needs, drawing from different therapeutic models, as warranted and appropriate. Beginning therapy, means beginning a new relationship with someone who only knows you in the context of what you bring to the room. I believe the effectiveness of treatment depends on how ready you are for the process of change to begin, how honest you are with yourself, and open and trusting you are able to be within the therapeutic relationship.

Psychotherapy gives us the opportunity to understand and change something that is negatively affecting our lives that we do not understand. Examples: Work success unobtainable!

I always seeming pick the wrong people for partners! Its hard for me to set goals! I day dream a lot!

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Psychotherapy in its very core is the professional relationship between you and your therapist (me). In the beginning of therapy, the first few sessions typically, we consult, develop a clinical assessment and identify your personal mental health goals. As we move forward, we address your mental health needs, your concerns, thoughts and feelings and move in the direction of attaining your clinical goals. In order to truly benefit from psychotherapy you will need to be an active participant and feel comfortable discussing your most guarded "secrets." My focus is to provide you with the best clinical care in an environment that cultivates exploration, introspection and trust.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

Is it time for you to learn about yourself? We are taught a lot of things in our world; how to be a student, how to live in a family, how to work, and how to expect to be happy. Only many times we are not taught about our internal selves and we really don't know what will make us happy. Many of us know what makes us unhappy. Why not discover what brings you joy? This is psychotherapy; a journey into yourself, gaining an understanding of YOU? It may become the most fascinating journey of your life, and it may bring you the tools you are missing to create a joyous, peaceful, loving existence. Don't wait to become your best you.

Please call me if you are having some difficulty in your life. I offer a free 15 minute phone or face to face conversation about how I do therapy. Many of the feelings of hurt or trauma that we have today that cause us unhappiness, come from the part of our brain that remembers emotions and beliefs when we were children. Children only know what they grow up with. Call me, make an appointment, and I'll explain further.

Marriage and Family Therapist

I believe there are many roads to success in everything you undertake. Success in psychotherapy involves a number of factors but when it comes down to it, you just need the desire to make some changes and the willingness to experience some discomfort for the sake of success. Everything worthwhile costs something...Your time, your money. The effort you put in to learning about yourself is worth much more than you could ever imagine. Everyone is different. My hope is that if you do this work with me you will come to know yourself, both your strengths and your weaknesses in a way that will give you a whoe new appreciation for the unique person you are.

Psychotherapist

Anthony Fiore, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

I do short-term solutions-oriented therapy to help you think differently about yourself and your world and then develop skills to better deal with your issues from the past or to better deal with current areas of difficulty. We start by assessing problem areas, and then deciding together how best to approach them and what result we would like at the end of therapy. Therapy itself involves talking in sessions, and feedback from me,but also many other skill-building activities such as reading, practicing new behaviors between sessions, and doing things to reduce life stress.

Psychotherapy is a place for you to feel safe and connected. You can say anything you need to, with a person who accepts you and is trained to problem solve when needed. I am a therapist who is here to be with you as you process out needs and fears in your relationships. I invite you to be yourself, and guide and reflect on our therapy process so that it addresses your need. If you need more problem solving, or more "processing" time (or just someone to hear you out), I'm here for that. You should feel comfortable with your therapist...it's important to find someone who helps you have a new discovery or to relieve stress by attending weekly.

Finding the right therapist is vital to the growth and healing of the individual.

Psychotherapy can be a frightening word because “psycho” brings up images of Norman Bates and he is certainly someone none of us want to be associated with. The truth is that psychotherapy is just a fancy word for counseling. If “therapy” is used alone, people ask if it is physical therapy, occupational therapy, etc. A prefix was needed to distinguish it from other therapies and unfortunately “psycho” was chosen. Please don’t let the word stop you from seeking any necessary help you may be seeking. Needing help doesn’t mean you are crazy or that you are weak. We all need help at various stages of our lives and if you are in need now, please let me assist you. Call me at 714-751-0888.

Psychotherapist

Lyndsay Elliott, PsyD

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

Many of us seek therapy to get relief from emotional distress, or to manage a problem that we are having in our lives. But often, those problems are connected to something deeper and causes us to feel “stuck” in patterns that we are unaware of. A full exploration of your history helps to uncover those more unconscious thoughts and reactions. Learning to manage the problems, while also addressing the underlying triggers is a crucial part in feeling more effective.

Psychotherapist

Andrea Schoon, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

Life is full of challenges and we get thrown curve balls which we are often not prepared for. We may come from homes which were unhealthy and now being in a relationship can be frustrating and confusing. Raising children is the hardest job of all. With all that we must deal with, there are times which our own coping styles do not work. It is then that outside help is critical to reduce the risk of symptoms worsening or to spend years just "surviving." It does NOT have to be like this. I can help you sort through the pain and get to a place where peace exists, where healthy relationships exist and where you are optimistic.

I am committed to creating a place where you feel safe to heal, and uncover emotional wounds and memories, so that you don't continue with self-defeating, maladaptive behaviors.

I think that psychotherapy is a great way to unearth the difficult patterns from our past that bog us down. I really believe that psychotherapy will help clients to discover who they are truly meant to be through the processes of discussing their family of origin and the dynamics that occurred. I've seen clients struggling with trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, and much more greatly benefit from psychotherapy.

Free 60 minute First Session/Consult

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

My approach to psychotherapy does not involve years of talk about issues until the client reaches a "catharsis," and suddenly is cured. It is more of a collaboration and involves the client to engage in his own therapy. We look for solutions, rather than talking about "problems" endlessly. As a person-centered therapist, I believe an authentic, respectful and caring relationship with the client fosters growth and self-actualization. The use of cognive-behavioral methods, allows us to look for underlying beliefs the client may have about his place in the world, and unrealistic thought patterns, such as "all-or-nothing" thinking. These can be redirected to provide positive outomes.

Psychotherapist

Sheri Rose-McCashin, M.S., LMFT,

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (MFC 28036)

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

Psychotherapy involves a confidential meeting with a trained therapist for the primary purpose of addressing the issues and concerns of a client. This professional and confidential relationship is to increase the client's awareness and choices. Active listening, feedback,exercises in session, homework (as needed), psychoeducation are utilized to facilitate increase awareness, growth and competence. Having a client work through difficulties (even if they can't change others or a situation) and have ways to respond to their satisfaction and with a renewed sense of themselves is very satisfying. I generally recommend a full physical/lab tests to rule out medical causation for mood disorders.

Psychotherapist

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.

Psychotherapist

Sarah Neustadter, PhD

Licensed Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

I see the purpose of therapy as clearing and healing old traumas and patterns that prevent us from living up to our highest potential and embodying our life purpose and fulfilling our dreams. Psychotherapy allows you to bridge a deeper sense of themselves, transform their lives and become their most expressed alive self. I integrate many modalities of psychology and healing, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, psychodynamic approaches, mindfulness, and shamanism. Psychotherapy, most of all, is about building a trusting and authentic relationship between client and therapist. This in itself has far-reaching therapeutic value that impacts our relationships, family and work-life.

Psychotherapist

Trish Phillips, PsyD, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

The psychotherapy relationship can be one of the most beneficial and life changing relationships a person can have. There is no other relationship that is "all about me." I fully engage and am present with my clients in whatever thought or feeling they bring to session. Together we can look at old patterns, family and relationship dynamics, and negative self-talk that may be affecting you today. In a world that can be very harsh and critical, I accept my clients for who they are and encourage them to grow in self-acceptance and care for themselves. I work with my clients to develop a therapy plan that works best for them and listen to what their needs are.

Psychotherapist

Sue Passalacqua, M.S., MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

My approach to psychotherapy begins with developing a trusting and positive relationship with my client. When my clients trust me the work of healing and growing can begin.

I see myself as a facilitator and collaborator which allows me to join with my clients to help them create a better life.

As co-therapists we bring greater awareness of what is going on in the room. We focus on the here and now. We bring experience in Gestalt, humanistic, mindfulness and narrative therapy into the room. We strive to create a safe and collaborative environment. We work together to help couples understand their patterns of behavior, acting out, shutting down and arguing.

Heather Huff, MA, MFTi

Marriage and Family Therapist Intern

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

Therapy should be challenging. Growth and change can be exciting, but also uncomfortable, and at times even painful. While our relationships to certain patterns and ways of being may feel unhealthy or dysfunctional, they are also often familiar and comfortable. The work of letting go of these ways of being sometimes requires stepping into the unknown. We will take those steps together, working at whatever pace feels most productive to you.

Ask yourself, when was the last time I invested in me, my own well-being and overall health? Psychotherapy offers you the opportunity to express your unspoken fears and worries in a healthy way while learning insight as to the causes of the underlying issue. While supported by your therapist, you have the opportunity to explore and process the impact of life events (ie., childhood experiences/relationships, major life changes such as marriage, birth of a child, divorce, loss of a loved one, and current relationships) in a non-judging environment that will afford you the opportunity to improve your overall level of functioning.

Psychotherapy can be a powerful tool in one's life. Most everyone can benefit from therapy regardless of what the problem or issue may be. There is always this misconception that you must have something wrong with you if you go therapy, but that is a myth.

We manage things on our own just fine, but some things just don’t get better despite our best efforts. That’s where psychotherapy can help. It helps by developing new ways of looking at the issue, gaining a better understanding of the situation, learning new ways of thinking and exploring other options and choices, all with the aim to get unstuck from the old unproductive pattern. People can and do change, and you can too. It’s like most things, if you ignore it, nothing changes. But if you focus on it and work for a positive change, it does happen.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Merely deciding to enter therapy is a hard decision to most people. Nevertheless, it can be a life-changing decision which involves taking control of your life and no longer accept things as they have been. Although the support of family and friends can be helpful, a professional help from an expert and objective person is sometimes most needed. I work with complex relationship issues, depression, anxiety, stress, sexual trauma, sex and love addiction, self-esteem, teen issues, and integration of faith and psychology. I welcome you in the safety and comfort of my office to talk openly about what's going on for you in your life and the next step that best meets your goals and needs.

All of us, at some point in our lives, experience problems and issues of one form or another , that can be overwhelming. Having a safe place to go to work on these issues, with a trusted psychotherapist, can be very beneficial. No one psychotherapy theory or approach, works best on everyone that comes to therapy . It is very important, therefore, that the therapist be well trained and have an extensive background in a number of theories and approaches, and be able to utilize them effectively, to help each client with their particular issues.

As life gets increasingly complex, occasionally we just need somebody to talk to… someone who cares, but who does not have a personal agenda with us… someone to bounce things off of, from whom we might acquire skills and tools that haven’t occurred to us, someone to walk with us as we sort things out. Psychotherapy gently facilitates the exploration and resolution of personal and/or interpersonal concerns according to our own specific individual needs and goals.

I can help you with attachment anxiety and attachment avoidance so you will understand how past experiences with caregivers or significant others have shaped your attachment. I will also help you see how these patterns work to protect you, not only early in life, but also later in life and how they contribute to your experiences of distress.

Do you have a behavior, belief or irrational thought that you'd like to change? We often learn the "rules" of life from our family of origin. Sometimes it's believed that these "rules" are the truth; however, these "rules" are how we make it through our families. It is once these rules no longer work for us that we need to change them so we can live life differently and often better. It's not easy to make these changes but it is fully doable and I can help you with these changes. Let me help guide you. Start by calling me at 714-432-9856.

One of the things I love most about my career as a psychotherapist is teaching and supervising interns in becoming Postmodern Therapists. This way of working focuses on a client's inherent resources for growth and healing. I focus on solutions, rather than on problems. Through deep, empathic connection, individuals are safe to open up, express their life long fears and challenges and experience the joy of moving beyond whatever "story" they've been stuck in. Clients experience this work as creative and energizing, as they explore their preferred selves and rewrite their life scripts. From depression, anxiety fear and confusion to clarity, healing and growth.

As a person-centered therapist, I believe an authentic, respectful and caring relationship with the client fosters growth and self-actualization. The use of cognive-behavioral methods, allows us to look for underlying beliefs the client may have about his place in the world, and unrealistic thought patterns, such as "all-or-nothing" thinking. These can be redirected to provide positive outomes.

Having the desire to deeply experience, explore, and feel our emotions that are related to both present and past circumstances is at the core of the process. Unexamined feelings can often lead to negative feeling or experiences which their cause is not understand. The process of understanding one’s feelings and emotions allows us to grow. Psychotherapy can awaken us to discover the real reason we choose our behaviors.

Psychotherapy brings insight, and there is some relief in this--sometimes even joy. But what heals people from pain, freeing them to move on from developmental states of being stuck, is a relationship of integrity and empathic responsiveness. Together the client and the clinician explore the issues that brought him or her through the door. It's a safe place to feel your feelings, to cry any necessary tears, and to say what must be said. More than this, it's a regularly recurring chance to be heard as you figure out what you want your life to be, and how you can become the stronger person that you ultimately are.

My approach to psychotherapy is cognitive-behavioral. This therapy is a collaborative effort between therapist and client to solve the client’s problems and improve functioning. It is goal-directed and short-term. I work collaboratively with my clients to address current problematic thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that may be interfering with daily life and relationships. I try to provide rapid relief from uncomfortable symptoms while also promoting long-term behavioral changes which maintain gains and prevent relapse. I help empower clients to become their own therapists rather than foster their dependency on me.

If your young adult is feeling isolated and alone, I can help them explore the circumstances that have led them to this place in their life. Sometimes healing is derived from simply gaining understanding of how their life experiences have impacted them and shaped who they are. I can help your young adult examine how their early childhood experiences have influenced the lens through which they currently view the world. I can also help them evaluate any rules they made up about the meaning of life. Together, we can design a new and more fulfilling story for their future.

Psychotherapy involves a confidential meeting with a trained therapist for the primary purpose of addressing the issues and concerns of a client. This professional and confidential relationship is to increase the client's awareness and choices. Active listening, feedback,exercises in session, homework (as needed), psychoeducation are utilized to facilitate increase awareness, growth and competence. Having a client work through difficulties (even if they can't change others or a situation) and have ways to respond to their satisfaction and with a renewed sense of themselves is very satisfying. I generally recommend a full physical/lab tests to rule out medical causation for mood disorders.

The issue is not what happened to you, it’s the impact it had and how you are able to deal with it. Psychotherapy helps. It involves our talking together to address the problems you’re having in your life. We’ll see what works, what doesn’t, why not, what you’ve tried, and what other options there may be. We’ll look to understand how the difficulties came to be and what gets in the way of changing them. We’ll see what’s happening in your life now and how old patterns of thinking and behaving may interfere for you. We’ll explore other alternatives. I strongly believe people can change, and I see that happening in my office regularly. You’d be surprised how therapy can change your life.

The word psychotherapy is made up of two root words. 'Psyche' means soul or life spirit and 'therapeuein' is to tend or render service. In this context, psychotherapy is in service to life spirit. It is dedicated to exploring the inner landscape of the individual as well as developing ego strength in the outer world of relationships, work, and creativity. The journey often begins with a desire for deeper meaning or curiosity about life. Is there more than meets the eye or is it simply a struggle to survive? Is there a way to decipher your nightly dreams? Are emotions serving you or blocking the way? Feel free to contact me if these questions intrigue you or you want to know more .

There's an old saying: "If you can't talk about it, you can't work it out." I agree. This is where psychotherapy can help. If you choose to work with me, we will work together to help you learn how to express yourself in ways that help you to identify your needs and how to get your needs met. This isn't always so easy, in particular if we are feeling guilt, anxiety, or shame. Many people simply aren't used to talking about some of the challenges of their lives. Perhaps this speaks to you. I understand. That was me at one time. What I can tell you is this: for over 25 years my clients typically report feeling better because they feel heard, understood, and truly cared for.

Life is full of challenges and we get thrown curve balls which we are often not prepared for. We may come from homes which were unhealthy and now being in a relationship can be frustrating and confusing. Raising children is the hardest job of all. With all that we must deal with, there are times which our own coping styles do not work. It is then that outside help is critical to reduce the risk of symptoms worsening or to spend years just "surviving." It does NOT have to be like this. I can help you sort through the pain and get to a place where peace exists, where healthy relationships exist and where you are optimistic.

I find that the therapy relationship gives us a unique perspective on what it is like to be who they are and look for clues in our work about what occurs for you in relationships, providing a way to learn about who you are in the context of our working relationship.
