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.

Relationships can be challenging. Therapy helps.

At Beach Cities Psychotherapy, we get the complications of relationships and how our ability to effectively communicate, understand ourselves and our patterns, and empathize with people we can about can make or break our relationship.  

Human beings are relational.  We crave relationships and we thrive in them.  Creating, building, and repairing connections is not always easy but it is meaningful and worthwhile. 

Our therapists understand attachment styles and how family patterns or trauma in our family of origin can impact the way we show up in all of our relationships. 

We help our clients untangle unhealthy relationship dynamics and get clear around what’s on their side of the street and what’s not.  We help them to find ways healthier ways to communicate, set healthy boundaries, and connect.    


If you can identify with the following experiences, therapy may help.

Feeling resentment or irritability in relationships. Feeling disconnected.

A lack of trust in personal or professional relationships. Waiting for 'the other shoe to drop.'

Difficulty communicating feelings effectively, feeling misunderstood or unseen.

Feeling isolated, lonely or like you don't belong.

Unhealthy relationships with people who don't live up to early impressions.

Feeling anxious about forming or deepening relationships.

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.  

Often people come to Beach Cities Psychotherapy when they feel like other therapists have skimmed the surface and they need more.

We want to help you heal and find the clarity you need in your life.
