About Me

I am a Licensed Marriage and family therapist in California. I have been working as a therapist since 2006. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, and divorce. I also helped many people who have experienced physical and emotional trauma. Prior to my work in mental health I worked as an EMT for 5 years in the emergency room and on an ambulance.

My style is eclectic, I don't think there is a one size fits all. So, I think it is important to use all the tools in your tool box. I also think it is important to meet people where they are. I've worked with lots of different populations and I understand that your life makes you unique and may come with many different challenges. I've worked with people who come from lower socioeconomic status dealing with immigration issues to people from urban and rural areas. I think it is my job to learn about you so that I can, as I said before meet you where you are to help you get to where you want to be.

I know for some cultures going to therapy can be hard. If you've read this far it seems you are ready to do the work to get to where you would like to be. I 'd love to help and be a part of your journey.

I look forward to working with you!

He does a great job of listening and trying to keep us engaged in meeting our relationship goals!

Dorian did a wonderful job of helping me and my partner through a rough stretch of our marriage. He was kind, funny, and gave us communication tools which will serve us well for the future.

Dorian is the best! My husband and I started seeing him at a rough point in our marriage and through weekly counseling we have found healthier ways to communicate and a better understanding of each other. He's helped us through both high and low moments and it's probably the best thing we've ever done for our marriage.

My wife and I think the world of Dorian. He's helped us immensely and continues to do so. He's kind, understanding and is really good at helping us get to the root of any issues we might have. He's a great communicator and a great teacher of the ability to communicate. Can't say enough good things about him.

Dorian is a great listener and has a very calm demeanor which is helpful in more tense times. He makes himself as available as possible and offers different solutions. Overall we really enjoy having him as our counselor. However, sometimes it seems like he struggles to encourage or push along the conversation. I’d like it if he digs a little deeper during our sessions to get more conversations going and/or for us to get a better understand of our behaviors, triggers etc.
