Individual Therapy in Pasadena, CA and Los Angeles, CA

Live the Life You Deserve to Live

“I just want to be happy!”


We all want to live joyful and meaningful lives. But sometimes it seems impossible! We try to get better and end up in the same spot. It’s like there’s some powerful force that controls us and gets in the way.  

Without our knowledge, the past can impact us in painful ways:


Yes! You Can Change!


You no longer need to suffer. The past no longer needs to control you. You can live a life that is meaningful and filled with joy! But, you might need a little help.

Reasons to Consider Individual Therapy


People come to individual therapy in Los Angeles for all kinds of reasons. Sometimes they find themselves stuck in life, unable to achieve, bored, empty. Sometimes they need to make a big decision. Or, there are things in the past they know they need to look at. 

Here are some common reasons people to come to individual therapy:


Couples or Individual Therapy?


Great question! You can work on relationship issues in individual therapy. Or, address individual issues in couples therapy! Confusing huh? Bottom line, if you have a partner who is willing to do some relationship counseling, go for it! Couples therapy is powerful stuff. Even if it’s your material that is bringing you in, you will work with that and so much more

That said, you can work on your relational issues in individual therapy too. Does the same relational pattern keep happening to you? Do relationships always end in the same way? In individual therapy, we can work through your relational patterns that might connect to your childhood, attachment style, and other things. You don’t need a partner to work on your relational self

How to Find A Therapist in Los Angeles, CA for Individual Therapy?


Searching for a therapist in Pasadena and Los Angeles can be a daunting experience. There are many therapists out there. All with different sorts of credentials and backgrounds. It can make your head spin. 

The good news? Research has shown that one factor above all others that determines whether therapy will be successful. The quality of the therapeutic relationship. In other words, how comfortable, safe, and connected do you feel to your therapist. It’s more important than degrees, credentials, modalities, and years of experience

So, what do you do? Make a list!

Ask for referrals from trusted family, friends, and other professionals. These might be doctors and massage therapists. Search Google for things like “individual therapy Los Angeles, CA,” “individual therapy Pasadena” or “individual therapy for depression.” Or look on therapist finder sites like Psychology Today or Good Therapy

Make a shortlist of 10 therapists in Pasadena or Los Angeles. Now, go to their websites, cyber-stalk them! If they have a photo, see how you respond in your body, not just what you think about them. Do you like what they say? Is there a video? Check out Yelp and Google reviews. Remember you’re trying to guess how warm they are, are they someone you would like to hang out with, get to know more?

Now, bring that list down to three and make the call.

Often therapists will have free consultations, but not all of them. You shouldn’t exclude those that don’t, but all should be willing to talk. Ask them about what they think makes therapy work. And as they talk to you, see how you feel. Are you relaxed, excited, eager? Or are you bored, or worse yet, guarded

Pick the one you feel most comfortable with, and give it a shot. The first session in my practice is always a test run, where we both get a chance to see if this feels good. Starting with someone does not mean there is any commitment. You control that. 

Best of luck, and if we can help, don’t hesitate to reach out!
