Michelle is a warm and inviting person who made me feel comfortable very quickly. She has been a great mentor and helped me overcome many obstacles in the aftermath of a serious life event I experienced. I felt I could be me without any concern for fear of how she may react. I have done traditional therapy but have preferred her holistic approach to combining therapy with a goal oriented approach to solving problems one may be experiencing. I have been able to get to a much better place in my life thanks to her support and the perspective she helps me obtain through self reflection. She encourages you just enough to help you push past your self-set limits without ever feeling like she is pushing you past your boundaries. Somehow, I always get to the realization I need on my own terms but with the help of her encouragement. I love her approach and feel that her respectful manner along with her warm, understanding attitude creates a space for one to really get down to one's core and find one's self in the process. She has truly been a gift to my life.
Stephanie is the universal counselor. I have no doubt she could help anyone with any struggle. My boyfriend and I were dealing with one of the toughest hurdles in a relationship, loss of trust. We were never great at communicating and were not open to therapy at the start. I agreed to try a session with Stephanie. I was NOT disappointed. After one hour with her help, I felt at ease with myself and hope for my relationship. She allows you to work together in the room and reach conclusions on your own and with her help. This was perfect for me, I don't like being talked at. She listens carefully, is patient and supportive. She leaves you with exercises to use at home that strengthened our connection and understanding of each other tenfold. We are very grateful to have found Stephanie Mintz.
Brenda is a wonderful coach/consultant. She has both experience and certified qualifications that she provides for her clients. She is a true professional. Her extensive use of the Harrison Assessment Talent Solutions (HATS) questionnaire is fascinating and tremendously enlightening. I personally learned so much about myself and how I interact with the world. HATS is such a powerful tool for individuals, couples, and organizations. It provides an enormous amount of personality insight into people, their natural preferences, and what 'makes them tick'. The assessment is also a great way for companies to find, develop, and maintain their best candidate(s) for any and all positions for hire. I highly recommend Brenda First Consulting for individuals, couples, and organizations that want to explore their most in-depth understandings and needs.
Best trainer I've ever worked with. Sees each body as it's own unique self... Starts at the beginning with stability and mobility creating a strong foundation. In the last couple of month working together I have seen my body change drastically, my endurance has improved, and I'm stronger and leaner. His background in physical therapy, and his knowledge about the body stand him far apart from your typical personal trainer. So grateful I found him!
When people ask me about Pedro, this is what I tell them, "Hire Pedro Baez, work with him assiduously, and change your life immeasurably for the better." Pedro is a forthright, honest, and loving coach who will act like a sextant as you steer your life towards the direction you want to go, revealing the innumerable choices in your journey and the transformative beauty of the experience. I've worked with him for almost two years, and this is the fruit: 1. Wrote a well-received book. 2. Recovered from an abusive marriage. 3. Learned to be less reactive, spot dysfunctional cycles, and shift relationships so that they are healthier. I am grateful for the work we have done.
Octavia is a very caring and compassionate therapist. She helps you get to a better place of understanding yourself and the world. I appreciated her ability to make the therapy process comfortable.
Therapy never quite made a difference for me in the past, and believe me I really wanted it to. Samanthas approach is so completely different and more personal then anything I experienced before that it has profoundly impacted my life in a way I always wished therapy would have. Unlike others, she helped me understand my life as a whole - and helped me develop a sense of self-compassion I never before realized would be so instrumental in my self-acceptance and self-growth. I learned to appreciate what it really means to be a growing human-being with Samantha and I learned to step back and see the whole picture of my life instead of just chopped up and seperate events. Some are good at making you think they understand you, but with Samantha one feels it. Best of all, she feels like a friend that really relates and not a detached doctor taking suspicious notes that is always at an arms length. I only wish I had met her sooner.
I have had 5 hours of individual therapy and I am very happy with my experience so far. I like the way Alik Segal,JD,MA,AMFT, approaches the situations that I am dealing with and I appreciate his honest willingness in wanting to help me with touchy subjects in my life.
I was embarrassed to talk about my sex life with anyone. After working with Dr. Stephanie I felt comfortable discussing my sexual concerns, was able to overcome sexual shame, and was able to reconnect with my partner after years of a sexless relationship. I felt very supported and understood by Dr. Stephanie and would highly recommend her for couples and individual therapy. - A.L.
Working with Saman for almost 3 years and I have to say that he has blossomed into a great professional. To be honest I was really skeptical if therapy was right for me, seeing as I only met him a year or so into his internship so I wasn't sure if he was able to help me. He is a very patient, compassionate and understanding person who takes this field of work to heart...It's pretty much his calling in life. Fast forward two and a half years later, I've learned ways to cope with my anxiety and have gained the confidence to accomplish my goals in my life.
Dr Starr was very caring. I have never been to therapy before and was quite nervous. Dr Starr made me feel very comfortable. I will definitely be back.
Great therapy sessions and available
Natasha is the unexpected breath of fresh air that anyone can benefit from. I was recommended to Natasha by my rhuemetologist after being diagnosed with fibromygia and a plethora of other ailments. I wasn't sure what to expect, so I entered the door with an open mind and a commitment to follow through with the sessions. Sessions include explanations of treatments, and guidance for what I'm going through. We talk a lot too. I'm very analytical and have a science background, so I want to understand everything that's going on. Natasha gets that and is very patient. In order to explain complex ideas in simple terms, one must have a thorough understanding of the topic. Natasha demonstrates her expertise in word and action. While there is physical healing involved, it seems more like a byproduct of the energy work. Instead of medicating the symptoms, Natasha gets to the root of problem through energy healing (detaching the negative energies and promoting the positive energies). Clearly, I don't understand it all yet. I'm still a noob! :) Check out the website or Facebook for info. I spent thousands of dollars and countless hours in the past few years with medications, the best specialists is SoCal, MRIs, and enough blood work to leave a constant needle prick in my arm. In the past couple months I've (slowly and carefully) stopped taking meds for asthma, thyroid, and allergies. My immunologist said I'm healthier than I've been in years! People around me are treating me differently (in a good way). My perspective is changing from the inside out in ways that I can't yet find the words to describe. In short, calling Natasha is the first step in an epic adventure of cleansing, healing, and love.
Krystal Soles has been exceptional when it comes to communication and flexibility. I am very happy with my experience with her.

We offer Buddhist-based counseling and therapy. Try a non-traditional alternative. The Spiritual Adulthood Therapy & Counseling Project is a Buddhist-based, more alternative Asian approach to relating with your "self". "What is accepted by the majority of people does not mean it is real." - The Buddha, 500 BC We provide private, insightful, one-on-one therapy and mindfulness life coaching and relationship counseling for marriages, couples, all kinds of partnerships, workplace and friendships. For emotional and communication breakdowns, we offer "reaching out to reach deep in". "The lotus has its roots in the dank dark mud, Grows up through the cloudy deep water, And finally rises to the surface. It blooms into perfect harmony and purity in the sunlight. It is like the mind unfolding into perfect joy and wisdom..." - The Lotus Sutra Please go now to our counseling blog site; the best info is there! You will find many more of your FAQs responded there. It's really an interesting site. Take your time to graze around in it. Hopefully, you'll certainly know a lot more about what you need when you've done some reading at the blog. The Spiritual Adulthood Therapy & Counseling Project is located at Santa Monica, CA 90405; near Santa Monica College. For our email and phone number, see the service window. The best phone times to contact us are noon to 6 p.m. from Monday to Friday. The initial phone contact is always the best and most immediate. Thanks, Akasa Levi, DhMA ( D.Min.) Counseling Supervisor "Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase; just take the first step." - Martin Luther King At Spiritual Adulthood, we apply the Buddhist psycho-spiritual approach to the mind. "The journey itself is the destination!" We offer a uniquely combined counseling: an innovative, holistic, spiritual variation of the mind-therapies, based in practical, quite highly scientific Buddhist wisdom combined with a gentle, accepting, gradual compassionate view towards all beings. "Buddhist mindfulness-based guidance" with its long humanitarian history, is a well-respected ancient Asian, non-religious, more spiritual option to the regular standard model of Western clinical therapies. Buddhism is not "religious", it is Asian-psychology based. You certainly can be a sincere, deeply spiritual person without being religious, without having any higher authorities and that helps to truly open the heart and mind to trust and sensibility. This is not a licensed psychotherapy! Please visit our blog for the details and the disclaimer. We assist in healing the mind in the midst of these very edgy, scary, confusing, disappointing, over-driven, tense, survival-stressed, anxious uncertain times. Buddhist Inner Work: "Therapy" is not found in even the best of books or CDs, or on the internet. It's a live interactive relating process; it always has been. Interactively, that's how the problems started. Well, that's how they have to resolve! For the therapy, two people sit down and emphatically work on one of them. It's living, live, dynamic and face to face. This time around, it's a cooperative dyad of two people who care, and are in on this. Therapy counseling is a relationship in its truest form, and that's always disturbingly risky for the wounded spirit to change. "The greatest risk is not taking one." Spiritual Adulthood is offering a much more radical form of counseling, more geared to people in the whole spectrum of contemporary creative arts and the best of new thought-minded sensibilities. Maybe it is more green, liberal, or cultural and creative. Maybe it is just you. The Spiritual Adulthood exploration encourages and supports a very eclectic "inquiry into self" practice, combining the cool, calm observation approach of traditional, quiet mindfulness meditation with effective "crazy wisdom" irrationality of Zen-mind realizations that can cognitively short circuit the common, but so obsessive self-involved, self-absorbed and self-identified ego mind. "One easily made, very common mistake is to think that your reality is "the" reality. You must always be prepared to bravely leave your reality for a greater one." - Meeraji We encourage highly inquisitive, progressive-minded people, with a natural, deep love of learning who relish the abstract, and even the absurd and have a genuine taste for the indefinable existential stuff. Buddhist psychology is playful too. "...ever noticed that it's always now." - Alan Watts He suggests that you repeatedly keep noticing this many times a day. Usually, the people who do eventually come to us are more explorative, curious, do have a more active intellect and are innately, intensely inquisitive people by their nature. There are not ordinary Americans. The "inner search", "the quest" and "the mystery" are the understanding of it all. They are people who relish the "safari" of it, the search, the inquiry, the brave quest of it, hurting or not, rather than popular ideas and packaged prescriptions just served-up and ready to eat. There is no quick fix. Enlightened freedom is experiential. It is not just a home-deliverable product. For each of us, all growth is a life-long psychological pilgrimage, experienced through a compassionate spiritual heart that includes live, full, rich relationship experiences with all other living beings. Question: "Grandfather, what is destiny?" Destiny is every step we are taking and going through right now to get there. "So, you really must consciously choose and make the choice of good spirits to re-choose again and again to openly talk truth with someone and keep it up. Keep it up to openly keep talking with someone. This is to be open to trust in gradually letting it all arise and unfold, messy or tidy, depressed or distressed. We all have these feelings. It's nothing new." - Grandfather Bearheart, contemporary Creek Elder "Eighty percent of success is just showing up." - Woody Allen Go ahead, and get into some quality counseling or therapy. You are really being heard here or somewhere that they will really take a deep caring to listen to you and really, really hear you and that is a very courageous move on your part: to move yourself into a counseling setting. It just may be the right place for you to start. Be very welcome to inquire more about us, as you search out where to do this inner work. Please read some more on this site. Buddhist-based wisdom offers compassionate, effective alternative approaches to relating with your "self" and all other living beings. Awaken the "compassionate insight" that is naturally deep within you and within mostly everyone. This is a liberal-minded therapy for intelligent, sensitive, intellectual and gifted, creative people who are often odd, often wonderfully offbeat, yet are now very discomforted, unhappy people. We offer an empathic, warm Asian-style of alternative treatment of mind well-being that just may be a more natural, truly effective, non-traditional approach. We are offering another possibility as a workable therapy approach for you. "The privilege of a lifetime is being truly who you are." - Joseph Campbell Phone us, and let's really take a few minutes together to talk on the phone and find out a bit more about what's going on within you. There are no obligations! It's a free phone consultation! Please go to our blog site and read a bit. There are a bundle of appointment details there and some sensible, solid good recommendations on how to even approach the idea of beginning some serious counseling or therapy, but there are no promises, no guarantees. Each individual situation is different and certainly, effectiveness may vary; yet it may be worth giving it a try. "And then the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom"- Anais Nin Buddhist therapy has been done very effectively for 2,557 years. "As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world, as in being able to remake ourselves. Become the changes you want to see in the world." - Mahatma Gandhi This can be done. Give it and you a chance!

We offer a free phone consultation, but please ask them to visit our blog-site first. We also offer: * The Laughing Buddha Sangha Buddhist meditation classes and retreats.

Are you worried about your child or teenager? Is he or she struggling socially or academically? Does he isolate in his room with the door shut, or cry more than you would expect? Growing up can be tough these days, and some kids and teens need just a little bit of extra guidance to help them through these years. This is where I can help. I have experience working as a school-based counselor as well as with challenging populations such as children with behavioral issues and on the autism spectrum. I use behavioral modification techniques to help your child improve on social skills, academic struggles, anxiety, overcoming bullying, and coping with major changes in the family, including divorce or any other significant loss such as that of a pet. I am a registered marriage and family therapist intern with a master's degree in clinical psychology from Pepperdine University. I may be younger than many of the other therapists you have looked into, but that is exactly the reason why I would be a great choice for your child or adolescent. My age helps me relate to and understand your child, which creates a better counseling environment. I am also fluent in Russian. I am available weekday evenings and weekends.
