Robert Hehrlein

LMFT

About Me

My name is Robert (Bob) Hehrlein; I practice psychotherapy under my California Marriage an Family License. I have over 15 years in the behavioral health field; initially working as an addiction counselor which led to self-employment as a recovery/ life coach. My last five years were spent as a therapist for mentally ill outpatients, providing psychoeducation to groups on topics such as emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and mindfulness. Some of the issues that I processed with my group members might involve anxiety, depression, anger management and relationships.

We can all feel overwhelmed when we experience a life hurdle. At these times, having someone to listen and provide a non-judgmental space, that promotes self-reflection, stability, and growth is extremely empowering. Life can feel amplified and invigorated if we can effectively harness our own strengths, for ourselves or within our relationship. I am passionate about helping others by utilizing a collaborative and holistic approach that incorporates evidence based interventions, motivation, and self-acceptance

If you have any questions about how to approach therapy, or what type of therapy might be best for you, do not hesitate to reach out. I would be more than happy to have a dialogue with you to see if I can help you with your needs.

Written on Oct 28, 2022 after therapy with Robert for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and grief

I have been meeting with Robert (Bob) for several months. His support and concern for me never wavers from appointment to appointment. He has become my biggest cheerleader and gave me the strength and conviction to make some drastic yet positive changes in my living situation. I have a much more positive outlook about my future and am even seriously considering relocating to another country. Bob’s unwavering support and encouragement have helped bring joy back into my life and instead of dreading the future I am looking forward to it.

I'm new with Robert but he definitely makes me comfortable. I like the fact that he is interested in what I am looking to get out of our sessions together. Very polite and respectful. I look forward to our continued progress

Very relatable and understanding. I have not felt this comfortable talking to anyone about myself until now. Opening up has always been difficult until now.

Bob is a great listener, he provides me with so much support and understanding. he is reliable and responsive. I appreciate his opinion yet he seldom shares his personal perspective. rather he speaks knowledgeably about life and human reactions and experiences and perspectives. he makes me feel so much better and gives me a strong sense of direction and stability and like I'm not alone

I’ve only had one session with him but already look forward in talking with him again. He’s soft spoken and listens. Which is very important.

He listens to the problems and concerns I have and speaks to me in a manner that is calming and re-ensuring. His knowledge and input has made me so much better for the few months I’ve known him

I have spent 6 or 7 months with Robert. He has been a great sounding board, guide, and has helped me through some extremely tough patches of my life. He lead me to tools both within myself and without that I feel have significantly changed my life for the better. Thanks Bob.

Bob was a great help! Very knowledgeable, understanding, and non-judgmental.

Written on Dec 30, 2021 after therapy with Robert for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, grief, self esteem, anger management, and bipolar disorder

I have benefited greatly from therapy with Bob. After the passing of my grandmother and experiencing anxiety around family complexities, I was unsure how to approach life. Furthermore, I was unsure of myself and my ability to not only move forward in my life but to thrive in living.
Bob has offered an immense amount of support and advice to help me through the healing process… I respond well to open communication, honesty, and directness, which is what I believe Bob provides for his clients.
If you are willing to be honest with yourself, do the work and accept help from others then you are seeking a therapist like Bob.
Do not look any further.
With appreciation and gratitude.

Robert has done great job of letting me speak and then he clarifies what I meant before formulating his responses. He has giving me several things to work on to combat my anxiety and work on the things that are within my control.

After two months of therapy, I find my sessions with Bob beneficial in helping me navigate the challenges of a dysfunctional family, loss, and aging. He is the type of therapist that shares insight based on his experience and education. As a result, a load has been taken off my shoulders since I can share my inner thoughts. I am learning and healing - moving forward with my life.

Bob is awesome.
He may only be my therapist, but I feel like he's a friend, more like a brother.
He's very understanding and so easy to get along with.
I would recommend him to everybody.
