Asking for help is a sign of strength.

Initial Phone Consultation

Use this consultation to figure out your next step. We offer this as a service because we want to make sure you get the help you want. We can answer any questions about working with us, and what to expect in your first session.  (It's also OK if you're not sure what to ask.) We give referrals if you decide we're not a good fit. Yes, that first phone call can be intimidating! We try to make it as easy as possible to get you through the right door. You can set up your consultation time here, or just give us a call at (562) 704-4736.


One-on-one sessions are 50 minutes. During your first few sessions, we will collaborate on mapping your goals for therapy, and decide together on how you will know if you're making progress. We believe in solution-focused therapy. As long as you and your therapist put in the work, you should start to see some changes pretty quickly. You set the pace for your progress, and we make sure to guide you along the way.


Couples sessions are 75 minutes. Sessions can be a great way to work through your communication patterns with a neutral person in the room. It's not about "who's right and who's wrong," but about truly understanding yourself and each other, so that you don't continue to repeat the same disagreements. Prospect Therapy welcomes couples of all identities and orientations.
