My name is: Dr. Lauture Massac, Ph.D. I am a clinical psychologist, graduated from United States International University (Alliant University) in San Diego. I am licensed in California. My main focus was in Adlerian therapy. I also have a Master's degree in Psychology with specialization in Chemical Dependency. I have 25 years experience working in mental health settings. In my practice I use Cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and solution focus therapy. Throughout my practice, I have developed holistic methods to treat patients and to empower them with self-knowledge to understand their psychological and emotional problems. Since each client is unique, my approach is design for you and your specific needs. Research has shown that there is a correlation between Mental Health and Physical Health, so an approach addressing both could lead to the ultimate therapeutic results.
I am also a Yoga Master. Before becoming a psychologist, I studied Yoga for four years in India in different Yoga schools, among them is the famous Lonava Yoga Institute in Poona. I am a rare psychologist with a practical package of Eastern and Western Philosophy focusing on therapeutic results.
I am a great listener, compassionate, and non-judgmental. I am also a classical piano player, and I love nature. My approach will guide you to find within the peace and the joy of life you deserve. I am also the author of: "Psychology of Daily Holistic Yoga and Self Realization."

I am happy that I have a neutral person to help council me and my fiancé
Dr, Massac is kind, thoughtful, and an excellent listener. I appreciate our time talking through life challenges. He is supportive and ask the best questions -they get me thinking in a new direction. I would recommend him to anyone! I am so very grateful for him.
Dr Massac has been very helpful in guiding me towards better life practices to remedy my depression. He is also quick to respond via text and offers Saturday appointments.
Upfront, laid back, easy to talk to.
Dr. Massac and I have only recently begun our work together and I never expected to have trust in him so quickly. Therapy is a two way street, you have to put in the efforts to make a change and he gives you insights, knowledge, advise, or whatever you need, plus he adapts to give you what will help you specifically and he makes it extremely easy for you to put in that effort and grow. He acknowledges everything you have to say and feel, he not only listens without judgment he offers real advise and tools to help you be the best you, and if you do not know how to apply those tools he guides you and gives you examples as to where and how to apply them to the issues you are facing. I have always dreaded talking to a therapist or got anxious before therapy session but he has made a trusting environment for me that I look forward to being in. He doesnt have a cure, because there is no cure, but from everything I've been through in my life I honestly believe this man can help me overcome those hardships I've lived through and replay, he can help me change all those negative thoughts I've told myself my whole life into positive thoughts. He has helped me grow and I'm not one to believe these post or trust them because my first thought is "they dont know what I'm going through" and maybe I dont but Dr. Massac does or will do his best to help if you work with him. He is my third or fourth therapist to be matched with just on here and If I could I would go back and tell myself to find this man sooner.
Dr. Massac is very personal. He keeps our sessions light and calm while still helping me talk about my bigger issues going on. I felt like I was having conversations rather than an interrogation. He did not give me any judgements on my situations but helped support me.
Dr. Massac has a way of seeing directly to the core issues. Even with just a few words from me, he understands the bigger threads in my life, and has recommendations that go to the heart of the problems.
Dr. Massac is a good listener and gives valuable insight about my problems. He helps me see things in a different perspective and gives me the information I need to make better decisions. I appreciate that he is always on time too.
I've worked with Dr. Massac for two months, as I was going through a difficult period in my life. He is supportive and will always try to be available when you need him. If you need that extra support, he is a good person to go for. Thanks Dr. Massac.
Dr. Massac is a person with expirience and knowledge. Patience and comprehension are present in his voice. He has simple and efficient excersises for self esteem empowerment. He tries to schedule me at the best times for me. I recomend a notepad when speaking to him. His positive words are something to take note off.
Dr. Massac is a kind and trustworthy counselor. He is patient and offers real solutions to difficult situations. His experiences are relevant and you can tell he knows what he is talking about.
Dr. Massac has really been a great help to me in such a short time period. He has put me in a forward direction and gives me advice on what I need to do to get my mindset to a healthy place. It's working! I am in so much in a better space on a daily basis. I like that you can text your counselor at anytime through your room. Even if I don't use regularly, I know it is available and gives me confidence that I know I have a "life line" to go to if I need advise right away due to daily situations that can happen in life. Thank you Dr. Massac!
I've been working with Dr Massac for about a month and I can say, he was definitely a great match. He's professional, always replies as soon as possible and fun. As I'm going through a delicate moment of changes and decisions in my life, he's proved to be extremely helpful and attentive.
In fact, I've worked with a number of different therapists before, but none of them could compare to him in wisdom and experience. Thanks to his unbiased and unprejudiced mindset, I found him to be very open-minded and understanding. He will patiently read and listen to each of your concerns and address them in a decisive and balanced way.
That's also possible thanks to his wide knowledge in different fields and his varied background. Depending on each different circumstance and need, he's able to offer help in a versatile way, ranging from practical tips, that you can easily implement in your daily life, to firm words of guidance and wise encouragement.
Through his guidance, I was able to hugely improve my physical, mental and spiritual life harmoniously, while overcoming troublesome moments of crisis. I'm both grateful and excited to work with him on this journey of self-improvement.
