About Erin Roalstad, Marriage & Family Therapist
I work with individuals, couples, families and adolescents, and I specialize in Women's Issues and couples in transition. I feel that when we have a safe, non-judgemental place to discuss our feelings, a lot can be learned about our lives, patterns and relationships. Many women experience symptoms related to depression, anxiety, self-esteem, body image and challenges finding a healthy relationship. I hope to help provide a supportive, non-judgemental space for us to work through those difficult issues together. Many couples face challenges as they make decisions to get married, change careers and / or have children. I can assist couples in finding a safe place to discuss these sensitive issues and find resolution and a plan.
I believe that the therapist/client relationship is critical to your success in counseling, and I genuinely value input from you as we work together. I work interactively and like to discuss your goals, so we both feel like we are on a path to your own happiness. While I do not give advice, I do help problem-solve and give feedback on what I hear, in order to help you make the right decision for yourself. Too often we feel that we "should" do something - often putting other people's feelings before our own. I want to encourage you to find your voice, to help you speak your truth so you can live the life YOU want.
I have a significant background in the corporate world, and understand the challenges of finding a good work/life balance as well as transitioning careers. I also have personal experience in the transition into motherhood and parenthood. This transition can be emotionally challenging, as you find yourself in a position of redefining your own identity, relationship and possibly career.
Feel free to give me a call with any questions, or to discuss setting up some time to meet. I look forward to hearing from you.

About Pacific Psychotherapy Associates:
If you're considering therapy for yourself, your relationship or your family, Pacific Psychotherapy Associates is a unique counseling experience in Los Angeles. We are licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, and Marriage and Family Therapy Interns that are highly trained, and bring broad life experiences to our work.
Our main goal in counseling is to make sure you are safe, and in a comfortable environment so you may freely discuss your feelings. Our theoretical orientation is a combination of family systems, object relations and psychodynamic theories. Basically, this amounts to helping you discover how behaviors and feelings may have developed that were adaptations to your early life.
We aim to connect with clients in a human, authentic, compassionate way.
We work together with our clients in a safe, non-judgemental way to help find out ways towards new feelings and behaviors that ultimately make you happier.
