Looking for a therapist in Southern CA? Well, they are a dime a dozen. It’s like finding a hair stylist that is right for you. Some of them with their reflective response, “It sounds like you are very depressed.” DUH! Like one does not know this? Then there are those with blurred vision and a lack of boundaries. I mean get some glasses! One can perceive you as a friend. Or you might find yourself in Psychodynamic Therapy and it will take so much time and wasted energy, to find out the influence your parents had on your personality, and what is it going to do for you anyway? Well, just moved to Valencia and wanting to find a good therapist, has caused me to interview many clinicians in person and on the phone. Being a clinician myself, it a mixed blessing. I had the sense as to see what is out there and frankly you do not want to know! When my patience and hope were running on empty, I did get lucky in finding Dr. Stephen Smith. He gets a good clinical assessment done and from that he works with clients, goals, and setting up objectives. Dr. Smith is very consciences and takes pride in helping clients to develop healthy coping skills. Instead of getting anxious or worried, one is enlightened with different activities that will lower stress. He recommends things like going bowling, getting a massage, taking a girl’s day out. All the things we think of doing and believe we have no time for or are just too depressed and stressed to do. He is present and focused with clients. He actually will pick up his office phone when one calls and returns calls in a timely manner. Make an appointment with him, as the need for help can arise at any time. You won’t be sorry! You will see a man of good wit, friendly, down to earth, unpretentious, and a pleasure to work with. Go, check him out! He is endearing, has a good sense of humor, and a big heart! ~~ Ellen F, Rittenberg, MSW; ACSW
