About me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and have been practicing in California for nine years. As a therapist my goal is to assist my clients in working through issues that negatively affect them in their daily lives. I have experience working a variety of clients with many different issues. I have extensive experience working with teens and adults on relationship and family issues, ADHD, trauma, substance abuse/addiction, sexual/behavioral addictions, depression, anxiety, and lack of motivation.

I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where issues, thoughts, and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. I believe that working within my clients' treatment preferences is key to a successful and beneficial therapeutic experience. My goal is to work in collaboration with my clients to address the needs that they feel should be addressed in a way that they feel comfortable with.

I look forward to working with you!

Eran is an insightful and real professional. He helped my teen son and I can recommend him if you have a young man interested in "connecting" in a genuine way!

A wonderful individual who is very well educated, is a great listener and makes you feel welcomed. Since speaking with him I genuinely feel like I have someone I can talk to who will never judge me. It’s been great having him as a therapist.

Great for couples. Solid methodical approach.

Eran is very thoughtful with his responses, non judgemental and has a great sense of humor. He helped guide me to learn tools to regulate my nervous system and keep my goals a part of my daily life. He recommended incredible books and helped me gain perspective on past trauma with EMDR sessions. I highly recommend working with him and would love to do so in the future if I want more support.

Everything is going good

In just a few sessions Eran gave me a few insights that really helped bring clarity to my situation. Thank you.

Eran was the perfect fit for me. He's empathetic, kind, and makes talking about hard things feel much easier. He creates a great space with room for humor and any emotion I need to feel. He knows when to just listen and let me work it out and when I need input and some direction. He also asks great questions. Even when there's nothing particularly pressing on my mind, I never felt like our time talking about it is spent non-purposefully or like we aren't addressing my primary needs. I'm really grateful to have found him through teencounseling.com.

On day one Eran was able to do more for me than any therapist I have seen before. He is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to!

Written on May 21, 2020 after therapy with Eran for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Eran is extremely professional and easy to talk to. It’s very nerve racking giving a stranger all of your thoughts that you haven’t been able to share with others and trusting that they’ll know how to handle them, but he does so with ease and without making it awkward. I was very skeptical to try this, but am more than happy with my choice and 99% of that is because Eran has made it so easy to open up.

Eran has been wonderful for my wife and I, especially instrumental in confronting our misdirected misgivings in our marriage and how to resolve them in a constructive and caring manner.

Eran is really easy to talk to and is really good about offering thoughtful, helpful view points and solutions to anything I might be going through.

He’s an intelligent and patient man. He’s helping me bit by bit.

Gives great examples and metaphors to relate experiences too. I feel like I really connect with Eran and it is a pleasure to read what he has to say.

Work with me!
