Again, welcome to my web site where you will find an overview on my services as well other information about my emphasis and approach. My name is Cathleen Cunningham and I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), a Registered Addiction Specialist Intern, as well as a certified life coach providing individual and family therapy. I specialize in addictions and other behavioral issues including life transitions, depression/anxiety and crisis management. I have a private practice in Redondo Beach, California in the Rivera Village area. This serene and private location is easy to get to from Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach and El Segundo as well as Torrance, San Pedro and Long Beach.
As a graduate from Pepperdine University, I have over nine years experience as an intern and counselor in several settings including outpatient addiction treatment centers. My style is highly interactive and solution-focused. My therapeutic approach is to provide a compassionate atmosphere, support and practical feedback to help clients reach their full potential and effectively address personal life challenges. My goal is to integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to you. With compassion and understanding, I work with you to help address and find practical solutions needed to grow.
Whether my approach is solution focused, cognitive behavior, or family systems, I customize my approach to meet your particular needs. Among my areas of special interest and expertise are substance abuse and co-dependency addiction, mood disorders, dual-diagnosis, life transition and adjustments and women’s issues. I also provide guidance for crisis intervention and trauma.
