For over 3 years our practice, Social Science Consulting, provided quality mental health services to children, adolescents, adults and older adults. Our services included individual, conjoint, couple, and family work with all services in English and Spanish. Thanks to your support, we have grown from a small private practice that I founded as a solo practitioner, to a vibrant Group Practice employing a cadre of licensed and pre-licensed mental health practitioners that include Clinical Psychologists, Marriage and Family Therapists, and Licensed Clinical Social Workers.
…So, what is in a name?
Feedback from our satisfied patients tells us that they enjoy our flexible hours (9 am to 9 pm most days plus Saturdays), beautiful offices in Encino, Santa Monica and Torrance, and the cordial, respectful and restful atmosphere that we provide. However, what they like the most, and what I believe sets us apart from other practices, is that we don’t limit our focus only on the problems at hand; that we do, in fact, work to bring forth total “wellness.” Accent On Wellness Psychology Associates Inc. was born from this very concept.
…So what does “wellness” look like in this context?
I believe that it is not enough to help someone feel less anxious or depressed (for example). These conditions are often symptomatic of other life problems, so we don’t ignore those needs. In fact, as solution-focused, strength-based therapists, our goal is to help you uncover your true potential and to help you lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve these challenges to enable you to move forward so that you experience a more fulfilling and meaningful life. In order to achieve these goals, we will work with you to identify social supports that can help you help yourself. Or, if need be, we may suggest referrals to other professionals or we may enlist the help of our partners that include Life Coaches and a Spiritual Counselor.
…What does all of this mean to me?
Whether you are looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or crisis, a work disability evaluation, or are just ready to move in a new direction in your life, we look forward to working with you to help you achieve your goals by focusing on your total wellness; by providing an Accent On [YOUR] Wellness.
