Are you looking for a therapist that genuinely cares about what you want to achieve? If that's you then take a look at my reviews on Google and see what my clients are saying about their experience in working with me.

About Me

    My clients are busy people who are looking for fast results. As a solution I like to get to work on the issues right away which means I will challenge you in your treatment plan so you can achieve the best outcome you're seeking in as quick a timeframe as possible. To help you in this process I offer early morning, evening, and weekend appointments. 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 in 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.

 

    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 proud father, and a United States Marine Corps Desert Shield & Desert Storm Combat Veteran. 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.

     I take my job very seriously and I invest in my clients by collaborating and building trust right away. No one is 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 enjoy working in therapy with me because they feel safe, comfortable, free from fear of being judged. I personally don't believe in a one size fits all theoretical approach. I customize your individual treatment plan based on what your needs are and how you respond to the treatment. My empathetic and engaging style in therapy resonates with clients because I'm authentic and genuine, as a result clients feel more empowered to choose to explore what 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.

     We live in a complex world and society today, sometimes we can all get overwhelmed. Families struggle from time to time keeping up and staying connected. Family therapy is for everyone in the family and can benefit each individual member within the family unit.
