About Ross Grossman

Hi, I'm Ross Grossman, MA, LMFT

Ross Grossman MA LMFT

And I provide Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy and Life Coaching for Individuals, Couples and Groups in Los Angeles, CA

I help Individuals, Couples and Groups who are challenged with Anxiety or Worrying All the Time, Feeling Sad More Often, Having Difficulty Finding a Relationship, Having Difficulty with Conflict in a Relationship or Following Through and Procrastinating, to get clear on their purpose. Through non-judgemental understanding, I provide a space where you can feel completely safe and open up.

Together, we'll explore how to get to a place where your worry and stress, frustration and procrastination, no longer run your life.

If You Feel Confused or Scared, I Hear You, And You Are Not Alone

Because our brains often give us inaccurate info, it can be difficult to identify what is truly leading to your upsetting feelings and ineffective behaviors, and even then, how to solve those upsets--and to change those unhelpful behaviors. .

Modern life is full of obstacles, frustrations and self doubts--from personal relationship conflicts to self-sabotaging behaviors, from family communication problems to career difficulties , its not easy navigating our thoughts and emotions. Sometimes we need a guide along the way.

Perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed right now with all that's going on. You may be feeling:

·  doubt about your self worth

·  extremely frustrated by people around you

·   like life has shortchanged you

·  critical of yourself for your thoughts, emotions or behaviors

·  unsure if you'll ever be happy again

If Feeling Anxious or Troubled about Personal or Professional Challenges is affecting your ability to live your life, then it may be time to get Therapy or Coaching.

It’s Possible To Start Feeling Both Acceptance AND Motivation for Change

As your coach or therapist, with understanding and compassion, I will work together with you to quickly identify both your practical, real life concerns and any thoughts and emotions that are preventing you from solving these very real issues. I am here to support you as you find your true values and direction.

I've spent more than 40 years searching for what makes people tick. Why? Because just like many others, I too had difficulty with personal and professional effectiveness.  I spent years studying philosophy and psychology to identify the thoughts, emotions and behaviors that would increase my effectiveness in the world.   Having found a clear, concise, evidence-based, scientific method of escape from  thinking, emotional and behavioral suffering, I am eager to help others do the same.  

Here's the Good News:

Managing anxiety and depression, procrastination and frustration with yourself, others and the world is possible. It's not only possible--it's quite real and within reach!

·  dramatically improve the quality of your relationships
