Westside Notes

“This world is but a canvas
to our imagination.”

             — Henry David Thoreau

Welcome to the Summer issue of Westside Notes. I just returned from the Big Island of Hawaii and witnessed the awesome power of Kilauea—possibly the most active volcano in the world. Not only was it mesmerizing to see, but it also serves as a perspective-builder reminding us of the earth’s spectacular energy. When visiting Hawaii, Kilauea is definitely a must-see. Now it’s back to the urban rhythm of L.A. and all it has to offer.

Office Space

Many of you already know that I’ve been looking for a new home for my practice, and I very much appreciate any additional contacts or leads. Here’s my wishlist:

  • single office in an existing suite (or small suite)
  • Santa Monica (prefer Ocean Park) or West L.A.
  • office size needs to accommodate groups
  • windowed office
  • very good soundproofing

Private Practice Opportunity

Part-time, post-graduate position available for MSW associate or MFT intern. Addictions experience required, group and bereavement experience preferred. Email resumé to andrew@westsidetherapist.com.

Men's Psychotherapy Group

My intern, John Chebultz, M.A. is currently forming a men’s group which will meet weekly in our Westside office on Tuesdays from 8-9:30pm. The group fee is $45 per group and John is currently setting up consultations with prospective candidates. For more information or to set up an appointment, please call 310.288.1650.

Recovery Coaching Update

In September I’ll be speaking at the Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health (SASH) conference in Boston. My workshop is entitled From Now On: The 7 Keys to Purposeful Recovery and will introduce the tools and strategies of Recovery Coaching to the sexual recovery community. For more details, please visit their website at www.sash.net. In early June my colleagues Linda Landon, Pat Moomey and I gave a presentation at the Milestones Quarterly Luncheon in Malibu which was quite well-received and great fun to present together. Please don’t forget that my Recovery Coaching blog is up and running so feel free to take a look at Westside Post.

Resource of the Month

Clearview Treatment Centers

During the past two years I’ve had the opportunity to offer a weekly coaching group to the clients of Clearview’s outpatient program here in Los Angeles. Not only have I had the chance to get to know their highly-qualified and caring staff better and better, but I’ve also heard from many clients about the top-notch quality of their treatment experience.
