It's amazing how one person can go so deep inside you and help you realise so many thing. Ira has done a great job at helping me find myself looking for answer for questions I've had all my life. It's amazing the way Ira looks for God's guidance to be able to help us understand God's plan for our life. He is such a great family counselor.

Also he is there 24/7 weather it's a phone call or a text he makes you feel secure to know someone is there for whatever sitiation you may be facing with out judging and always helping!
Molly Thank You so much your important part in our special day! You did a great job and we are so grateful to have found you. You felt like a part of our family from day one. We had a very memorable experience. Thank you again for your services.
It has been well over a year since I met Dorothy, and I'm so grateful that I did. I was in a dire situation where I had serious health issues that for some reason couldn't be detected by any tests doctors would give me. When my family turned away from me for lack of evidence of illness, I took it upon myself to turn towards alternative medicine and heal something that I knew I had. Very soon after this low, low point in my life, I came across Dorothy and all her magic. She treated me like family and has always been such a generous person with me. I had always felt I was a hassle or a shame in my family, but Dorothy's compassion is out of the roof and she has been patient with me despite my downfalls and short-comings, and that is something that has helped me slowly but surely improve to where I am today, to a great extent. I went at this energy work and reiki stuff blindly at first. I didn't know what to expect but at the time I was willing to do anything and I felt I was at the right place at the right time. And let me tell you, it works. I FELT things move and change around in my body. There WAS a difference between when I came in and when I left. I still remember. My digestive tract had definitely improved. And I felt the weight come off me after talking through the issues that I had experienced. It was amazing. And it's really something that you have to experience for yourself, and who better to experience it than with the best: Dorothy. This woman is the real deal. I took her reiki class too, and I learned about things I didn't even know I was capable of until I put it into action. And now I do energy work on my friends or even myself every now and then, and I find that what I usually feel energetically in someone else is pretty accurate! Dorothy also provides you with a TON of resources to look over and it seems like a lot a first but if you be patient and take it one document at a time, you will find that it is the most useful thing ever! And you can always call her when you have any questions, she will not turn you away. She has really helped me beyond what I initially had thought was capable. Dorothy is just magnificent. Honestly, if your sitting here reading reviews wondering if you should go for it or not, please do. You can usually tell when a person is serious about their work, and from the moment I started working with her, I did not doubt her one bit.
Cristi is the best in her craft and career choice. She deffitntly cares more than any other therapist, I've ever met by far... I've had the pleasure of working with her for some time now and I appreciate what she has taught me. She's very experienced with all walks of life and I think she would fit anybody's personality. I don't like telling people I'm in therapy but I've began too enjoy and love sharing my story with her.She's helped me a lot.She goes above and beyond the call of duty and she checks in on a weekly basis even when it's the weekend and off days she still listens and helps. Cristi always makes me feel special and really good. Since I started seeing her I decided to attend cosmetology school if it weren't for her I probably wouldn't be following my dreams and I would be dreading my life , like I was previously. Cristi Also has helped me find my voice in time and now that I have found my passion, I'm going to stick with it. Follow your heart and the passion will come and she is deffiently passionate about her work and her clients. She always makes me feel at ease and it's so easy to talk with her it's like talking to my family but she's not family at all but I consider her a great mentor and friend. If anybody wants a friend in an therapist I would highly recommend her. I have suggested her to a few of my close friends that deffiently would benefit from her.
My experience with therapist Octavia Fukino has been a positive, healing process for me. Her gentle and honest approach has helped me peel off layers of hurt and become a whole person. I would definitely encourage my family and friends to head her way if they are looking for a therapist.
Ana was extremely knowledgeable, professional, attentive, and overall very helpful in improving my parenting skills and relationship with my daughter. She is also a wonderful person who truly cares about the families she works with and is driven by her passion and sincere desire to help others. I highly recommend her to all families, even those who may think they don’t have any problems!
Neicha helped me to relax in my NOW. I felt like I was in a deep relaxation. I thought it was longer than it seemed. I could feel the negative energy flowing out of my body through the crystal healing process and increased feeling of well being. Her space was neat, spacious and had a serene vibe to it. She let me know exactly what she would be doing. I will definitely recommend Neicha to my friends and family.
I had a very enlightening experience with RHIFT! The counselor helped me view personal challenges in order to make the changes necessary for growth and development in my life.
So happy I found a therapist that understands what I go through. Dr. Maxine your great 😆
Jeffery managed to see me at very short notice. I walked into his office in a very confused and upset state of mind. I have never had any kind of councilling before but immediately felt at ease. We talked over my issue and I left feeling a lot better than when I arrived. I cannot recommend Jeffery enough, he has given me the strength to see a way forward in my life at a time of great turmoil and emotional stress.
Best therapist I have EVER seen. I have seen many. Melissa is solution focused and gave me feedback which is WHAT I NEED! Not only was she totally forthcoming but she also gave me advice and how to communicate better with my partner. I have been needing help and I don't have time to figure it out myself! Made so much more sense the way she was with me in the room compared to other therapists. I feel like we actually got a lot of work done! I recommend her to anybody as she is warm, funny and smart.
Jennifer has been the best outlet for me and my daily stresses, helping me cope with work, family, and relationship stress. She understands cultural pressures and shows compassion with my issues. She always on time and gives me the full attention of the hour. She is also very flexible with my schedule. I would recommend her to anyone.
Rachel is very warm and inviting. She was prompt in responding and was able to schedule me right away. I would recommend her to my own close friends and family!
Patrick is warm and welcoming, he listens clearly and let's you share your experience fully, then gives advise that is practical, step by step ways to improve your life- finding balance. He has supported me with the challenges of caregiving in my family.
Plinio was an amazing instructor. And the Breakthrough Parenting course was spot on. The "One on One" instruction was perfect for me and there was no question, issue, scenario etc. that Plinio couldn't handle. Best prep for a single Dad. Would totally recommend any first time or experienced parent to take the course so you have a better foundation to be a parent and raise a happy, healthy and well adjusted child.
My therapeutic style is active and engaging, with the intention of fostering insight and self-awareness. I am very passionate about holistic health and wellness and I truly believe in the mind-body connection. I work experientially and relationally to assist my clients in reconnecting with their bodies and listening to their internal signals. I use a combination of mindfulness based practices, somatic interventions, gestalt therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and relational therapy. As a certified yoga instructor, I also use basic yoga postures, breath work, and guided meditations to help my clients increase their bodily awareness, process trauma in the body, and focus on the here and now. I received my B.A. in communication, art history, and psychology from the University of Southern California and graduated with honors from Pepperdine University with a M.A. in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy.

Sometimes, life just doesn't go the way we want. Too often, we find ourselves stuck in a bad place, leaving us hurt, lonely, angry or depressed, just plain out of control. Why is it that we do the things we dont want to do, and we dont do the things that we know are good for us? I provide a confidential, non-judgmental place to re-engineer your life. I will strive to help you experience growth from the pain of life and empower you to move forward, better able to face the inevitable problems that come your way. I look forward to the opportunity to partner with you, to help you clarify what you want from your life and how to go about getting it. My primary area of interest is in working with couples, although I do work with individuals also. This includes pre-marital counseling, communication difficulties, recovery from affairs and sex addiction, and parenting together after divorce. In 2011, I've completed a certification in sex addiction therapy (CSAT®) through Patrick Carnes. The CSAT® program is fast becoming the industry's standard certification for all therapists who are working with individuals who suffer from addictive and compulsive sexual behaviors. I've received a Master of Arts degree in clinical psychology from Azusa Pacific University and am a marriage and family-therapist-registered intern (IMF#64851) under the supervision of Curtis Miller, Psy.D., D. Min, MFT#31636. I am trained to use the prepare/enrich inventories, which is a comprehensive couple assessment tool for pre-marital counseling.
I provide individual and family therapy. I have several years of experience working with the System, DMH, DCFS, Regional Center as well as women issues. I also work with women and men dealing with unresolved childhood sexual abuse issues as well as depression.
I love the opportunity to help my patients move from being stuck in a repetitious cycle of dysfunction and despair to living a life of fulfillment and joy. Often this exceeds what they have ever imagined. Because I do long-term psychotherapy, I have the honor of seeing my patients mature in this way over the course of time--the time of our lives working together.
GETTING THE MOST OUT OF THERAPY Whatever your problem, challenge, trauma or pain, the power to change exists within you. I believe an effective therapists job is to support your shift, not to create it for you. Being with clients session after session, I find the persons who have positive movement are the ones who show up every week seeking collaborative solutions and try them out between sessions. Whether youre familiar with the therapy experience, or just hoping to find a place to provide some helpful solutions during a difficult time, I can help you make your desired shifts. Together, we can mutually create a safe space to discover new ways of looking at things and make progress toward your goals and desires.
I have worked with hospice, helping individuals and families entering their end of life transition. I have found that by paying particular attention to the steps of grief, people can continue to grow and build healthy relationships even while coming to terms with a terminal illness. It is important for everyone to be able to break through old patterns to say what needs to be said. I have since transitioned to working with individuals with eating disorders, which reflect other underlying issues and trauma. I assisted many clients replace self-destructive behaviors (eating disorders, self-harm, substance abuse, and other maladaptive coping skills) with acceptance and self-love. I believe therapy can benefit everyone who sincerely wishes to see a change in his or her life. Appropriate therapy can relieve feelings of distress, increase satisfaction in interpersonal relationships, create skills for managing anxiety, and help grow greater personal awareness and insight. Difficult changes have no specific design, but with help, you can learn from them, grow with them, and be better because of them.
