Jake Edward Goldman, MA, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Santa Monica
Therapy can change your life. If you just take a little time and can find the strength to give it a shot, you will likely feel much better. Research shows, however, that progress depends specifically upon which therapist you choose. Perhaps you've heard complaints about LA therapists before--about the quality of psychotherapy received for the money spent. Well, the truth is: there are many mediocre, poorly-trained therapists in LA that can't really help you, who don't care enough, who charge very high fees. I promise to give you more: authentic, effective psychotherapy for less cost.
I am trained in the most effective approaches to change in psychotherapy, such as CBT and Solution-Focused Therapy. In addition, after a lifetime of studying psychology and philosophy, I have developed my own integrative theory and approach to psychotherapy that may be appropriate for your needs and goals.
I specialize in empowering clients to make difficult life, career and relationship transitions, with helping clients to overcome depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, etc and enabling clients to achieve greater happiness, freedom and personal power in their lives. I compassionately, sensitively address the tough Los Angeles culture that we all inhabit.
