Dr. Laith Gulli, LMFT, LCMFT
I believe therapy is a collaborative effort between the Client and Therapist. As a Therapist I utilize evidence based therapy models such as cognitive behavioral therapy; solution focused therapy; and the biology of human behavior. The focus of therapy is to assist Clients in attaining therapy goals in a step-by-step process so that Clients gradually transition into a healthy lifestyle and also to deliver a comprehensive therapeutic approach. I have a Master’s degree in clinical psychology with a specialty in family therapy and a Master’s degree in Biology with a specialty in Neurobiology. With 21 years of experience as a psychologist and family therapist, I found very good success explaining to Clients the biology of behavior in simplistic ways. Explaining brain biology helps Clients understand the changes that are needed to modify behaviors to empower clients to maximize their potential. I have extensive experience treating depression, anxiety, adjustment, self-esteem, work related issues, family discord and relationship conflict. I have worked with clients of all ages. I look forward to meeting you.
