Move through your barriers
and into a sense of fulfilment.
Meet Dr. David Perlman
I have extensive training in private practice and hospital settings. I work with adolescents and adults facing depression, anxiety, relationship issues, PTSD and trauma, as well as co-dependency.
A focus of mine is men’s issues related to relationship issues, depression, anxiety, dependency, co-dependency, issues related to self worth and shame, and trauma. I see men in individual therapy and run two ongoing men’s groups.
I also work with young adults and adults living with ADHD. I view ADHD as a unique learning style and set of personality traits, rather than strictly a negative force in peoples’ lives. With this perspective, I highlight the strengths of this way of thinking, while addressing the negative aspects of this process.
I practice in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, Westwood, West LA, and online with video sessions.
Therapy is a journey of self-discovery. It can help you more fully understand yourself and create the life you want. Every journey has its stresses, but this is one that can revolutionize your life.
I have helped people achieve this and I believe I can help you too.
I commend you on taking this step.
I welcome you to come in for a free initial consultation.
I offer this service so that you can see if we are a good fit together
and whether you would feel comfortable talking with me.
Currently I am seeing patients online because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
This way of working allows for in depth exploration. Each session is 45-50 minutes in length. We can meet once a week or several times a week, based on your needs.
Both of my groups are currently being held online because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
I hold ongoing men’s groups With this as a starting point, men create a close-knit group, which allows them to explore issues of self actualization, creating healthy relationships, and living a more connected life, among others.
I run a group on Thursdays from 7:30pm to 9pm in West LA and from 10:30am to 12pm on Saturdays in Westwood.
Internet Based Therapy
We can also meet using video and telephone based therapy. I will work with you to set up a community around you. Finding a local Psychiatrist and/or other services in your area can be a wonderful step in moving towards health, especially when working with me remotely.
