Needs a Therapist in West Hollywood

Stuck in an impossible emotional spiral.

Angry at everyone, every day.

Can’t stop blowing up over simple things.

Nothing gets done no matter how hard you try.

Nobody gets you ... You don’t even get you

Friends say, “We're worried about you.”

You Deserve More From Life!

Even the most successful lives can become unexpectedly gridlocked and feel overwhelming, empty, and hopeless. A skilled and effective guide can help you unearth the confusing and frustrating mental forces driving emotional suffering, so you can regain control over thoughts and emotions, and get back to a meaningful, fulfilling, and productive life.

I can help.

I get it. Everyone else is effortlessly managing a seemingly perfect life, but you somehow can’t. I help people understand why they are struggling, so they can start making better, less self-destructive choices. I don't pretend to know who you are, but instead collaborate to find the best way to connect and tailor my clinical judgment to meet your specific needs. Clients frequently report therapy helps them feel better, have greater control over their emotions, and be better equipped to handle unexpected challenges.

You can do this.

We all withstand what life throws at us most of the time. But, it can be impossible to see a clear path forward when blindsided by trauma, anxiety, depression, breakups at home, or breakdowns at work. I’ve been where you are! It’s frustrating being unable to figure out what’s causing so much emotional pain, but too embarrassing and time consuming to ask for help. Sadly, failure to do something can lead to deeper mental anguish, disconnection from family and friends, feeling empty and hopeless, and possibly worse.I help people unearth and challenge unconscious thoughts that drive self-destructive behavior. In session clients can gain insight into learn ways to reconnect to their true self, improve self-confidence, finally gain  control over rebellious emotions, and discover a greater overall sense of well-being so they can get return to the happy and successful life they deserve.

"I have been a psychologist for over 35 years and it’s evident to me that psychotherapy is Phil’s calling and he is well-suited to practice it. This work is his passion. A good therapist is rich in certain personal characteristics foundational for healing: empathy, emotional intelligence, curiosity, rigorous honesty, and an ability to be guided by life experience without being misled by it. I’ve collaborated on cases with Phil and have seen his competence, skills, and growth in action."
"He’s definitely got what it takes."
