Hi, I'm Daniel Acosta and I know from personal experience just how frustrating it is to hear back from a therapist days later... Feel free to reach out to me so I can help you and your loved ones today not tomorrow.

About Me

    My name is Daniel Acosta, I am a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist #93817 in good standing with the California Board of Behavioral Sciences. I'm a husband, a father, a United States Marine Corps Desert Shield & Desert Storm Combat Veteran, and I'm here to serve you. I attended and graduated Liberty University in 2014 with my Bachelor's Degree and I graduated from Touro University with honors (Summa Cum Laude 3.98 GPA) where I completed my Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2016.


    My clients are busy people who are looking for fast results; in order to help my clients facilitate this process, I get to work on the issues right away which means I will challenge you in your treatment plan so you can achieve the outcome you're seeking in as quick a timeframe as possible. I offer flexible availability options to further accommodate you, with sessions slots ranging from early morning to late evening, and even Sundays too!! I respond extremely fast (within 2 hours or less on average) and in most cases, I will schedule you within the same week, sometimes even on the same day or night depending on when you call me and my availability. If you call me and I'm available to do so I will provide you with an initial free phone consultation.

    I take my job very seriously and I invest in my clients by collaborating and building trust right away. No one's perfect, what happened in our past or previous mistakes we've made doesn't define who we are or our future. My clients express they feel safe, comfortable, free from fear of being judged, and like they are talking to someone who genuinely cares about them and their welfare. I don't believe in a one size fits all theoretical approach; because of this, I like to customize your individual treatment plan based on what your needs are and how you respond to treatment. My empathetic and engaging style in therapy resonates with clients by being authentic, genuine, and forthcoming. As a result, my clients feel more empowered to choose to explore whatever they want to in their sessions. I'm not going to judge you and I'm not going to turn away from you and if it turns out you have needs that I don't treat I will provide you with at least three referrals.

Services Available

Individual Therapy

     I provide individual therapy for clients to help them overcome obstacles that have become problematic in their life. We’ll work together to address your therapeutic goals and challenges by empowering the individual and giving them a sense of ownership in their treatment plan. 

Couples Therapy

     Are you looking for Couples Therapy without the therapist taking sides? Then you’ve come to the right place. I listen to and work with both individuals in Couples Therapy equally to assist them in addressing the issues they are most concerned about. 

Virtual Therapy

    Over the past two years, I've provided virtual online therapy to clients who requested it. I provide a stable, reliable, and efficient platform that provides my clients with a HIPAA compliant and data encrypted environment. Client's express on how incredibly convenient and simple this is with nothing to download. After COVID-19 this had become a favorite option for busy professionals who work long or sometimes late hours.

Life Coaching Therapy

    These services are for clients who aren't struggling with extreme mental illness issues. Whether it's a mild to moderate form of anxiety, depression, anger, grief, loss, or dealing with divorce. We will focus primarily on skills development so you can move forward, process, and overcome the challenges that you are concerned about the most. These services can be used for individuals and couples.
