Dyan Kolb, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Torrance
Past failures, poor decisions and missed opportunities result in feeling unforgiving towards ourself and cynical about life. Drugs, alcohol or other problematic behaviors may have been a source of coping but we have realized that the problems are still there and sometimes get worse. Learn about your addiction and you will learn about yourself. Making changes in our life begins by recognizing that changes need to occur. Our old ways of coping are no longer effective. Working with the right therapist can help you learn and apply new and adaptive coping skills to identify and maintain a life worth living.
I believe that one of the many important aspects of therapy is the therapeutic relationship. My office is a compassionate and safe space to explore areas of your life that you are dissatisfied with. My relational style is casual and collaborative, inspired by team work and problem-solving oriented.
A Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in helping people understand and treat their mental health and addictive disorders. I offer research supported cognitive behavioral treatments to help identify and replace negative thinking that influences our choices. Learn cognitive tools to get you closer to a life you value.
