Welcome! My name is Lorrie! Life can be challenging and complicated. Choosing a therapist doesn’t have to be. I believe that building a genuine, open, and honest therapeutic relationship with my client is the best way to connect. Together, we will work to explore areas of your life that are challenging to set you on a path of happiness, fulfillment, and purpose. Are you tired of relapsing?? Tired of struggling to stay sober?? My experience in the field of Substance Abuse allowed me the privilege of helping those struggling with addiction and mental health disorders as well as their families. I have worked in this field for the past sixteen years and it has given me a compassionate perspective for those struggling to get and stay sober. I am enthusiastic and passionate about helping you find unique and creative solutions to problems. Parents, would you like some peace in your home? Are you tired of the lying and manipulation? Need support dealing with a teen with addiction issues? I can help.

As human beings we experience a seemingly infinite amount of thoughts, feelings, and experiences. And while I am an optimist at heart, I know that life can often feel lonely, unfair, and overwhelming. Trying to navigate these difficult times can be stressful and confusing. You don't have to go through it alone. I believe everyone has the right and the capability to live the kind of life they want, whatever that may look like. I view Therapy as a very human process, as well as a very sacred one. As your therapist, my goal is for our conversations to offer a sense of relief and perspective, while helping foster healthy self-exploration and personal growth. Through supportive conversations, I aim to help you gain a deeper understanding and connection to the values within yourself and the world that surrounds you. My hope is that through this process you will find a life that is authentic, and meaningful...and that you truly enjoy.

Hello, I am Jennifer. I am a licensed therapist with over 25 years of experience supporting people of all ages through various transitions and challenges. I offer a unique approach to mental health that integrates clinical therapy with moderate physical exercise in the great outdoors. I focus on helping people with anxiety, depression, life transitions, stress/burnout, infertility and alcohol misuse while increasing nourishing habits such as exercise, sleep, nutrition, and other practices that reduce symptoms and calm the nervous system. Have you ever wished you could get in-person therapy without having to sit in an office with the therapist? Do you feel too busy to schedule both therapy and exercise into one day and wish the two could be combined? If so, then "walk and talk" could be a good fit for you. I offer the opportunity to receive counseling or coaching while outside in nature and moving your body. Research demonstrates that both exercise and spending time outdoors in sunlight and green spaces provides a reduction in symptoms associated with depression, anxiety, and stress while improving mood overall. My unique "walk and talk" method addresses all three aspects of healing and growth: physical, psychological, and spiritual. Have you found yourself wondering if you are drinking too much and/or too often? Are you tired of experiencing low energy, anxiety, depression, disrupted sleep, sugar cravings, etc. and you wish you had a coach to support you as you navigate a new way of living alcohol free? If you are sober curious, I am here to help!

I am passionate about the outdoors, animals, music, art, and new adventures and I try to blend this into my therapy as much as possible. In our sessions, we will spend time building a strong therapeutic relationship that will allow us to identify your strengths, your goals, and how to get you there. I provide a compassionate, judgement free space and an integrative approach, assessing what interventions or approaches work best for you and tailoring your treatment to meet your needs and I am able to provide a sliding scale payment to make treatment more accessible as well. I have 9 years working experience, and have been licensed for the past 1 year. I have worked as a Therapist, Clinical Director, and Clinical Case Manager within residential and outpatient settings providing care to adolescents, young adults, veterans, houseless individuals, individuals involved in the legal system, couples, and families. I feel strongly that through building trust and a strong therapeutic relationship, we are able to make progress towards goals and work to heal past trauma or tackle primary obstacles. I enjoy working with clients who are motivated to see themselves grow and change. I especially enjoy working with adolescents and young adults in exploring who they are and what they want in life, as well as individuals experiencing big life changes. My clients are open minded, accepting of challenges, and ready to rewrite their stories.

I appreciate you taking the time to learn about me and consider working together. As there are likely many therapists who can accompany you on your journey, here’s a bit about me, which may help you make a choice. I have worked with many people navigating anxiety, depression, stressors, life transitions, trauma, substance use, learning & neurological differences, and relationship issues. If we work together, you can expect to learn more about your authentic self – who you are at the core. I am curious to identify the unique gifts you bring to the world and illuminate how you can use those to address challenges and opportunities in your life. I will listen intently, be curious about your thoughts and feelings, and respect you are an expert in your own life. Whether your decision to seek a therapist is something you’ve considered for a long time or a decision just made, you may be experiencing a mix of thoughts and feelings. Perhaps some vulnerability asking for support from and confiding in someone you don’t yet know, maybe uncertainty about how therapy will help you. I view the very act of reading my profile as an act of courage and hope.

Do you want the best quality therapy from the comfort of your home? My name is Jordan Allan and I am a fully Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with 10+ years of extensive experience providing mental health services to individuals from all walks of life. Throughout my career, I have successfully been providing effective psychotherapy to clients who would not otherwise have access to services if they were required to go to an office and am here to provide you services at your convenience. Originally, I was born and lived most of my life in London, England where I was fortunate to receive the highest education at the best schools. Later I moved to California where I enrolled in Graduate School at The University of Southern California. I obtained my Masters's and PhD degrees both Summa Cum Laude and with full honors with academic and research-based emphasis on psychiatric practice, integrated care approaches and providing clinical psychotherapy mindful of each client's culture and self-identity. I dedicated myself to providing mental health services to the most at-risk on the streets of Skid Row, out of the JWCH Institute. I worked as part of a highly expert team of professionals to improve and advocate for the lives of all adults in need through psychotherapy primarily. After several years, I chose to gain experience working with children and their families did so by joining Wellnest (FKA LACGC). Working again in-field, I provided mental health services to children and teens while also coordinating with parents and other family members. I have experience and continue to work to provide various assessments, treatment plans, psychotherapy and more via Tele-therapy to meet with adults in a variety of settings remotely. I truly believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion and I make it a priority to do so in every client encounter and session, I always have. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique, specific needs to address how your current symptoms affect your health, relationships, job or any other major part of your life. It takes courage to seek out help to address your mental health and to take the first steps towards a more fulfilling life where your symptoms no longer affect your quality of life. I will be here for you every step of the way. I am looking forward to providing you or your loved ones with the help they need.

My name is Nima Robert Zahedi. I was born in Oklahoma in 1969. I have never been married, and do not have any children. I attended elementary and junior high school in Texas. In 1984 I came to California, where I attended high school. In 1996 I received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from California State University Fullerton. In 2002 I received a master’s degree in social work from California State University Long Beach. I chose to pursue a master’s degree in social work, rather than psychology, because I was drawn to the social work philosophy, and still am. In 2007 I became licensed as a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) with the California Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS). In 2015, I returned to school full time in pursuit of a doctorate in clinical psychology (Psy.D.). In anticipation of my doctoral practicum, I accepted two part-time practicum positions; one at a forensic psychology practice in Orange County, and another at a general private practice in Los Angeles County. On August 25th, 2017, I successfully defended my doctoral project at California Southern University, which is an online school with WASC accreditation that was established in 1978- the campus is in Orange County California. I defended my doctoral project on campus, where I also attended Master Lecture Series by leaders within the field, and met with my academic adviser as well as with fellow students who were in the area. My personal interests revolve around athletics and arts. I grew up playing all of the major team sports as well as skateboarding and BMX. As an adult, I began pursuing surfing, jiu-jitsu, musical instruments/composition, and painting.
