Cynthia Peikoff, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Irvine
My greatest strength as a therapist is being able to capture the big picture of your life from the details you provide me. If you can see your story with new eyes, compassionate and uncritical eyes, you can begin the process of changing the way you live your life. After the first session, at the very least, you will view your problems from a new perspective. My approach is based on years of successfully helping clients overcome chronic anxiety, depression and loneliness.
I am thrilled to be one of a small number of OC therapists trained extensively in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples (EFT). EFT has been scientifically validated to help 75% of couples who complete therapy. Dr. Sue Johnson's "Hold Me Tight" article on this website explains her innovative method!
I enjoy working with businessmen and women, engineers, writers and academics. My background in both the corporate world and the arts helps me understand the particular challenges you face. I also enjoy working with perplexed parents and twenty-somethings.
