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. My family feel like it's finally coming back together and for that I am so thankful. 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!

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.

My discipline style was not working with my 17 year old son and I was at the end of my rope. I contacted Lisa Smith and we began the process of figuring out the best way to help him. Very quickly I started seeing results! One of the best parts is that Lisa will come to you and work with your family in your own home where everyone feels the most comfortable. I can't recommend Lisa highly enough she really helped us with a difficult and challenging time in our lives.

Rodger had a game plan at the very first session. He helped me make decisions that resulted in tangible changes. He helped me gain confidence by uncovering the root patterns of my powerlessness. I felt comfortable with him throughout our work together. I will definitely recommend him to my friends and family.

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.

After months with several disappointing counselors, we found Dr. Jeanne. Her approach is impressively different for 3 reasons: 1) she got to essence of the issue -- quickly went beyond the "superficial layers" and discovered the "issue behind the issue", 2) she is extremely fast -- after every session we experienced immediate, significant shifts and although sometimes this stuff can be difficult, she made it palatable in a way that both my husband and I appreciated 3) she does so much more than marriage counseling -- after we got through some "big" issues, she coached us to resolve a number of important business issues that we have been struggling with for some time. But the bottom line is that I can honestly say, that she did in fact help us save our marriage. The fourth nice sugar on top is that she has a very soothing and calm manner, making the difficult issues that are so hard to face, more palatable and easier to approach. I highly recommend her, she will save you considerable time, pain and money -- and most importantly, she gets results.

Verified review

I worked with Dr. Mandel for 2 years and really feel like it helped me a lot. When I started, I was really depressed and negative. My self-esteem was low and it was affecting my work and relationships. I did not really believe that therapy would help, but in the end I really think my work with her improved my relationship with my girlfriend and my performance at work. Even my family comments on how much my mood changed. Overall, I had a great experience with Talia, and still check in with her from time to time.

We've been to several counselors over the years, some better than others, but Tammy is just amazing. She is compassionate, understanding and fair. She is a very active listener who gets right to the heart of the matter. We've found there are no shortcuts in therapy, but you want to have confidence that your counselor is guiding you down the right road, and it's comforting to know that Tammy is right there with us!

I have been to many marriage therapists and while my marriage unraveled right before Dr. Price, she genuinely cared for both of us and without her I would not have been able to make it through this. Her understanding is coupled with exceptional education and enough heartbreaking experiences in her personal life to truly be both empathetic and guiding. Linda is truly one of the rare councerlors who could save your marriage if gone to soon enough and will help you save yourself and family if too late. I have referred many couples and individuals to her and ALL have sent glowing reports back to me.

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.

About

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and professional clinical counselor in Los Angeles. I work with adults, teens, couples and families on all kinds of emotional and relationship issues. I have a particular interest in couples counseling, family therapy, life transitions, career development and grief and loss issues. I also enjoy working with creative people whose lives are maybe out of balance. Change is difficult but necessary in life. As human beings we tend to fantasize about reinventing ourselves or the situations that we created. We wish there was a magic wand that could transform us. I work with this desire for change and help people process the hard places that they don't want to go to alone. I believe that doing this work will provide a richer and more meaningful life. I bring a direct, grounded approach to helping people with their day-to-day situations, while also drawing upon my training in psychodynamic therapy to work towards lasting change. My style is flexible, informal and gently confrontational. I bring warmth and compassion to help open up possibilities for people. It's exciting when something that seemed unattainable begins to seem reachable. My role as a therapist is to create a safe, trusting and comfortable environment, where we become curious together about what is not working in your life and find new ways to approach situations.
