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 West Los Angeles 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.


Individual Psychotherapy

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.


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.
