Dr. Mario Prietto

Clinical Social Work/Therapist , PhD , LCSW

(323) 387-3938
Working together, we greet Pain and Suffering and ask "How will you serve my development?" Psychotherapy isn't about finding perfection, but pursuing wholeness and respecting our Self. It's simple. It's complicated. It can be very difficult, and and there are laughter and surprises to be enjoyed. Go for it: tend to your emotional to-do list, relationship overhaul/finesse, deep discovery, gather energy to take your journey to the next level. Mid-life? Starting out on your own? Starting/ending a relationship? Creative and stuck? Uncertain times like these require support, wisdom and creativity.
My training and education as a Depth Psychologist and licensed clinical social worker help me approach every patient with curiosity, respect and reverence. I believe the psychotherapy process is a sacred Art form, not an exact Science, and your wellness is my highest priority.
Education constantly enriches my practice. I pursue trainings and experiences in topics including: preventing child/partner abuse, recovery from trauma, interpersonal neurobiology, Buddhist mindfulness, stress/burnout, creativity, dream tending, perinatal mood & anxiety disorders and art.
