Relational Therapy with Evidence-based Treatment

Beach Cities Psychotherapy
Serving the South Bay Communities of Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, El Segundo, Torrance, Palos Verdes and surrounding Beach Cities.

We will get in the trenches with you and help you get to the root. We are not nodding-head therapists.

We value our relationship with our clients and are invested in helping them create meaningful change.

Going to therapy and trusting someone to help you through life’s most vulnerable challenges is not easy.  We value the courage it takes to sit down with us and we don’t take it lightly.  We know the current research — the therapeutic relationship is the most important predictor of outcome.

Our relationship with our clients is our top priority.

Our therapists are trained in evidence-based tools to create meaningful change including CBT, motivational interviewing, mindfulness, DBT, TF-CBT, and EMDR.  Our therapists also know that the relationship that they build with their clients is the most pivotal part of the process. 

At Beach Cities Psychotherapy, our therapists are highly trained, and also ready to collaborate with you and get to know you so that they can help you with whatever you’re struggling with in a way that resonates for you.

Why Beach Cities Psychotherapy?

Are you looking for a therapist who lights pretty candles, smiles and nods while you talk about the same problems week after week?  If you are, please go somewhere else. This is not what we do at Beach Cities Psychotherapy.

At Beach Cities Psychotherapy, we ask the challenging questions and get in the trenches with you.  Sometimes trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship struggles, or identity issues get in our way.  You may feel empty, broken or even worthless when other people may think you have it all.  We help you make the shifts you need to live the life you want and feel able to appreciate it. Our goal at Beach Cities Psychotherapy is to cultivate change and healing by asking you the hard questions, addressing the areas where you are stuck, and confronting pain with treatment and healing.

We are direct, hands-on and we value humor above candles. Our therapists are not scared of your pain, your fear, your struggles. We will delve beneath the surface when you are ready.

We value your mental health, your time and your resources too much to talk about the same problems in the same ways that you always have.  We want to help you heal and find the clarity you need in your life.  Often people come to Beach Cities Psychotherapy when they feel like other therapists have skimmed the surface and they need more.
