Chris Regan, PsyD, Psychological Associate in Torrance
"I've tried so very long to change, but I just can't do it on my own." These are the words that I hear most often from women and men who have made the difficult but courageous decision to ask for help. Often, asking for help is not possible due to fear of being judged. I usually help individuals learn that they have already judged themselves more critically than anyone else could. No life is free from difficulties and everyone makes mistakes; we learn from our mistakes.
Kindness. Not identified specifically as a therapeutic modality, but it it is the foundation and carrier of the trans-theoretical treatment approach that is my specialty. I want to meet you where you are stuck, so together we can implement healthy change and move into wellness.
I have worked for many years treating substance use disorders and trauma. These issues destroy families and couples and are not issues that work themselves out. Guilt and shame must be brought into the light for healing to begin. Loneliness must end and I will join with you to flourish.
