If you're considering therapy for yourself, your relationship or your family, Pacific Psychotherapy Associates is a unique counseling experience in Los Angeles.

We work with a wide range of interpersonal and relational issues including;

Our main goal in counseling is to make sure you are safe, and in a comfortable environment so you may freely discuss your feelings. Our theoretical orientation is a combination of family systems, object relations and psychodynamic theories.  Essentially, we assist in helping you discover how your current behaviors, feelings and relationships may have developed as a result of adaptations to your early life.  By illuminating issues, we can create awareness and then change.  By understanding why you are – you can become who you truly are.

We work in a compassionate, down-to-earth, non-judgmental and interactive way with our clients.  Essentially, we are “real” people who assist you in exploring your feelings so you can find your way towards new behaviors and feelings that make you happy. 

If you feel this approach would work for you, we would be happy to hear from you.
