SHIFT Psychological is Different.

Based out of Orange County, CA, SHIFT Psychological is a small private therapy practice with a limited number of clients—by design, and as a way to ensure that each client gets as dedicated an experience as possible. We specialize in treating and managing depression and anxiety and work with adults and teenagers with a special emphasis on men's issues. We approach each therapeutic relationship with deep respect for how difficult it can be to reach out, a tremendous awareness of how nuanced each person’s situation can be, and reverence for the therapeutic process as one that requires a shared vision and shared curiosity.
