Dr. Lake has been amazing!! If you are looking to get to the roots of your problems and if you are willing to put in the work to bring about change, then this is the therapist for you. I can't say enough wonderful things about him!
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.
Patti is incredibly intuitive. She is able to see issues that I've never known exsisted. Her methods of therapy is hands on and unique. She is kind and very easy to talk to. I would highly recommend working with her.
Stephanie wonderful and she is helping me and my husband get over this dreaded hump in our marriage. She gives a safe space and a neutral environment that allows for us both to be comfortable.
My 8 year old suffered from terrible separation anxiety. So bad that she couldn't go to school. It was heartbreaking and we tried different types of therapy and then I found dr John. He was very helpful and informative, we talked on the phone a couple of times before our meeting.My daughter felt safe with him right away and the hypnotherapy session was amazing. After one session she was back to herself! I'm so thankful for Dr John McCrail, he's the best!
Helena works magic on me! It's been wonderful knowing I have a go to massage therapist and healer. From my first experience and on, she takes time to understand my areas of pain and always follows up to make sure I'm doing well after the fact. I've referred several friends and clients and will continue to do so. Thank you Helena for always giving me the best healing therapy.
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.
Over the last 20 years, I have been increasingly experiencing some sleeping, anxiety, and focus issues. Finally, I had it and needed to something about it. Having never been medically hypnotized before, I had no idea what to expect. On the pre-meeting call, I was put completely at ease and assured that my issues could be resolved. I arrived at the very upscale office and was immediately struck with a sense of calm. I was taught proper breathing. Throughout the session, everything was tremendously relaxing and natural. Afterwards, I was delivered a very professional mp3 of the session (for nightly re-use) and a set of relaxation exercises, which I have been diligently using each night. The results have been surprising. The first night after therapy, I slept like a baby. I haven't slept quit as well subsequent nights, however I have slept consistently BETTER than before. Just the breathing exercises alone were worth the price of admission ... they have helped that much. Traci is an outstanding hypnotherapist and I would not hesitate to return for follow up sessions (if necessary) or to address other unrelated issues. I highly recommend her!
I am very happy with the services that I received from Dr. Murray S. Kaufman. The first time that I visited him I literally was a mess. I was dealing with IBS, and the condition was killing me because I didn't know how to live with it. I went to see Dr. Kaufman with the intention to receive a hypnosis protocol for IBS. I started the protocol; however, the doctor realized that I was suffering from anxiety disorder that was making the IBS flare up, and I started a therapy to work on that. Dr. Kaufman helped me to find the roots of my anxiety and how to deal with them. Every session was very productive, and I learned a lot about myself and dealing with my conditions. Now, I am in a much better place in life, and so thankful to Dr. Kaufman, because he helped me to overcome one of the darkest moments of my life. He is very knowledgeable, dedicated and professional. I recommend him from my heart to yours.
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.
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 referred to Los Angeles Therapy Institute through my own therapist. I was looking for a therapist who specialized in hoarding for my 65 years old sister who has had problems with hoarding for many many years. Her problem was so sever that we had to hire companies twice to get rid of her things and we spend many thousands of dollars for treatment! it was bad! When I saw Dr. Hosseini's email regarding review I really felt obligated to write an honest and wonderful review as she really helped my sister get rid of her hoarding problem. She worked with my sister for 7 months and during that time, she was able to manage her hoarding problem and the wonderful part of it is that she has maintained this even after terminating therapy with her. Dr. Hosseini changed my sister's life in major ways and we are grateful for her. I 100% recommend her.
'Natara has been my guide to the ultraworld for years. Her caring and open way leads me to discover new and exciting things about myself and others. Her integrity and sense of quiet balance are the gifts which set her apart as a teacher, healer, and shaman in a workshop or large ceremony gathering. I look forward each year to my month-by-month reading, and have traveled to participate in her sound bath therapy and Reiki sessions. I especially recommend her "Shift" workshop which is like an unrolling of one big bounteous medicine bundle for everyone to find something (or everything) to enjoy. Thank you, 'Natara for your unwavering and bright light in this time of great and accelerating change.
As time went by and the injuries mounted from being a former athlete, my total body seemed a mere shadow of what it was. Naturally as a former athlete, I always thought it would be easy for me to shed pounds and then get back into shape. I was never more wrong about anything and I can thank Ms. Fitzgerald for all of it. After putting myself completely in her hands and care, the fog of dieting and eating was lifted as she helped me find the root of the problem which was the space between my ears! After time and her encouragement I was able to do things I never thought I would be doing again and after multiple surgeries, broken bones and repaired ligaments, I can never thank her enough. Her approach was all encompassing and, not to sound dramatic, a path of self discovery where body, mind and health all integrated to get me where I am now....... Healthier, more active and happier. I rarely trust anyone...... but I trust her with my personal health and would recommend anyone to do the same...... I have 93 pounds lost to prove it!
Great therapy sessions and available
I came to Oliver at Verbal Ninja ahead of a big speech that had career and even life changing potential. I was speaking to a large group of fellow doctors, several of whom were what you might call “celebrity doctors.” Frankly, I wanted to upstage them. I myself have an acting background but have always had a lot of stage fright for public speaking. I worked with Oliver over the month leading up to the big event. I knew what I wanted to say, just not quite how to say it. He made my words sound like nothing I’ve ever heard before—yes, that good. Yet it still sounded like me…I felt comfortable and spontaneous. He sort of gave me the voice that I always thought I had inside, if that makes any sense. He also coached my delivery, voice, gestures, movement, eye contact, etc. etc. His tricks to conquer stage fright—especially the psychological aspect—are brilliant. The result? I think I killed it that night. Even my billionaire friend who came to see me said I spoke better than a lot of people he sees that speak on a regular basis. Even the owner of the company had this to say: “Thanks for everything, the event was great and we were very happy that you gave that speech, it was amazing! Not only the way you presented (like an actor) but also the content was very emotional, some tears were shed from Melissa.“ People came up to me afterwards and shared how I changed their view on aesthetics and really motivated them. All the “famous doctors” who spoke alongside me on the panel were super impressed as well. In short, Oliver came to me highly recommended. He leaves me even more highly recommended. If the stakes are high, he’s the guy.
Krystal Soles has been exceptional when it comes to communication and flexibility. I am very happy with my experience with her.
When I went in for my appointment with Choury, I had mixed emotions. I was excited about what changes could be made but I was also nervous that it wouldnt work. Im a stressed out student and I had a huge exam coming up I really needed this to calm me down and give me instant recall of information since part of my exam was timed. In the past, I had severe test anxiety so I would go in to take an exam and if my mind was racing too much and my emotions were running high, on parts of the exam I would literally blank. It was awful! Which brings me back to my appointment with Choury Sitting in his presence put me at ease right away and any nervousness Id had going in, simply vanished. When he started our session, the sound of his voice drifted me into a calm, comforting place where I felt safe a place to tap into if I should ever feel I needed to revisit. Choury gave me a tool to use to remind me of that safe, calm feeling a tool to use when taking exams. I did exactly that for my exam and Im proud to say that it worked and I passed it with flying colors! I remained calm throughout the test and had instant recall of all information, exactly what he was working with me on. Choury, I cant thank you enough for all that youve done and anyone thats lucky enough to find you as their hypnotherapist will quickly know how amazing you are! I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you will help them achieve their goals as much as you helped me! You truly are the best!!
Avo is the best massage therapist you can have. I have had many and no one compares to Avo.

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.
