Sarah Farnsworth

Pre-Licensed Professional
In life, we travel through the present moment while simultaneously being influenced by the past. At times this may feel confusing, jumbled, frightening or damn-near impossible. Who am I? What am I doing? Where am I going? These are just some of the questions we ask ourselves -- the ones that keep us up at night. While I cannot answer these questions for you, through Psychoanalysis I can offer you the space to explore these deep questions and support you through your journey into yourself -- with all its twists and turns. This is a collaborative process. Together we will take the plunge into your history, wade through experiences and relationship dynamics that have shaped your world, and dream of new possibilities and potentials that have until now remained out of reach. Psychoanalysis is not easy, but nothing that touches the soul is. To quote Neville Symington, "Psychoanalysis is not for the person who has had a breakdown and just wants to start functioning again, because as the analysis proceeds he may have to revise his whole life and alter it radically. I think that psychoanalysis is for those who have a curiosity about life, but also wish to live it inwardly" (from The Psychoanalytic Experience). If you wish to explore yourself in-depth and exist as your truest self, I invite you to contact me. I am accepting Clients virtually and in-person in Los Angeles and Newport Beach, CA.

When DIVORCE feels like the answer, and that thought breaks your heart...overwhelmed by shock, anger, disappointment, regret and deep sorrow...frozen by confusion, fear, humiliation and hopelessness...exhausted by the constant flooding of these feelings which lead to bitter battles, and sleepless nights. Trying to engage in meaningful conversation is frustrating and enraging. An experienced, understanding counselor can help calm your emotional tidal waves, stop intrusive, hurtful thoughts, and help you find your way again. Even if the cause is an affair, an addiction, a bitter betrayal, a stressful life or difficult in-laws.

Emily Echeverria

Marriage and Family Therapist, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, MS
In childhood, we develop a number of coping mechanisms to adapt to the world we have been born into: people-pleasing, perfectionism, addiction, achievement, avoidance of conflict or uncomfortable feeling, codependency, etc. Usually, we seek therapy when these coping mechanisms that worked so well in our younger years are now actively harming us or our relationships, or are no longer successful in helping us deny our sadness, fear, anger, or loneliness. My practice goes beyond symptom management and deep into the depths of the unconscious to help clients understand how unprocessed trauma and long forgotten stories are effecting their daily thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. We will use imagery, dreams, and story-telling to help you rediscover that which has been lost - hope, intuition, self-trust, confidence, safety, love. Our goal, if you allow me to travel alongside you, will not be for you to become a better version of yourself or just feel better, but instead to know yourself on a deeper level and love all the different parts of you so that you can move forward in life more authentically, whole-heartedly, and peacefully!

Emma Esper

Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT, LPCC
As a therapist and clinical counselor, I help to hold the weight of anxiety, trauma, depression, and relational conflict, and encourage self acceptance. There is beauty in showing up for yourself, and bravery in turning towards struggle. When we deny our struggle, we deny a part of us that is longing to be seen. Struggle and suffering are hard to face, as it often leaves us feeling broken. Many of us were never taught to embrace our flaws and imperfections. What if we could see the broken pieces of ourselves, the parts of us that are scarred, and view them with compassion? What if we saw our scars as marks of courage and resiliency? The journey towards wholeness includes accepting each part of ourselves, the part that is joyful, the part that laughs, the part that hurts, the part that feels empty. My work is based on the hope that we can step into our authentic selves, to feel without shame, accept our darkness, live mindfully in our own light, and recognize that who we are is enough.

Dr. David Shapiro

Psychologist, California Licensed Psychologist (License# PSY17495)
Hello, and thank you for taking the time to consider working with me as your therapist. I appreciate the importance of finding a good match. I hope that the following information will help you know more about me and the care I provide so you can begin to consider if I would be most helpful to you. One thing that distinguishes me as a clinician is the level and quality of training and experience I was fortunate to receive. I hold a Ph.D. from the APA Accredited Counseling Psychology Training Program at the University of Texas at Austin, an M.A. in Developmental Psychology from Teachers College - Columbia University, and a B.A. in Psychology from the University of California at Santa Cruz. As part of my doctoral training I completed a full-time year-long pre-doctoral internship at the Jerry L. Pettis Memorial VA Medical Center in Loma Linda, California, where I received intensive supervised experience in a variety of areas. I went on to become a licensed California Psychologist, a credential I still maintain. Most recently I also added to that becoming a Singapore Registered Psychologist as well. Throughout my professional life I have held a variety of positions in both the private sector as well as governmental agencies, but the majority of my career has been in private practice. For a number of years I ran a group practice in Orange County, California, in which I provided a lot of direct clinical care, as well as supervising developing clinicians, and overseeing the overall operation of the group. During that time, I also taught Psychology at U.C. Irvine and served as the Chair of the Professional Practice Committee and as a Board Member for the Orange County Psychological Association. During those years, I provided a variety of types of therapy to a range of clients, and developed a range of areas of expertise. With over 20 years of experience as a Psychologist, I have come to realize that the best therapy involves more than just teaching of skills, though of course a great deal of teaching takes place. In this way, I have moved away from cookie cutter approaches that try to treat everyone the same. Of course, as needed I am able to connect my clients with workbooks and other materials that help them learn to learn useful strategies like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, various enrichment programs for couples, and the like. However, in my view these resources are used to support the true work of therapy, which in my experience involves a particular type of relationship - one that is focused on helping each individual to embrace the life he or she truly wants and supporting that person in taking the steps necessary in manifesting that life. In this way, at it's core, the best therapy is individualized rather than standardized. Unfortunately, this type of care is becoming increasingly uncommon. Instead, because of variety of societal pressures, including those of managed care, the emphasis in mental health is toward having therapists apply standardized treatment protocols aimed at promptly reducing symptoms rather than empowering such things as self-actualization. These types of therapies do have value, and they allow clinicians of various levels of training and skill to have some positive impact, often in ways that are highly cost effective. That said, my practice focuses on caring for people who seek personalized care, aimed not just at relieving symptoms but rather on empowering people to claim their lives. If this is what you seek, I would honored to assist you in claiming your life, bringing your reality in line with how you would ideally like things to be. I have spent years in honing the skills necessary to provide this care, and my most sincere commitment is to make such therapy available to discerning clientele who value such a personalized approach.
