Counseling & Therapy
Psychotherapy in Southern California
A psychological evaluation is provided by a clinical psychologist or a licensed therapist. A thorough evaluation of the client’s mental health will lead to a diagnosis and development of an effective treatment plan. Psychotherapy services may include counseling for the individual (children, adolescents, and adults), family, couples, or groups. At times the psychotherapist can assist in determining if psychiatric medical services may be necessary.
