About me & my Services

A brief tour

Paul Dooley, LMFT

Psychotherapist MFC #92603

Hi, my name is Paul. Welcome to my website! I am a licensed psychotherapist based in San Diego, California.  If you want to learn more about me and my style of counseling be sure to visit my about page.

Step One: My Philosphy

My approach to counseling and psychotherapy is straightforward. My goal is to always provide service that is tailored to your specific needs, is solution focused, and time limited. In terms of theory, I generally use a mix of cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, and person centered therapy. You can click on the highlighted links to learn more about these modes of therapy.

Step Two: Who I Work With

I work with individual adults and children 13 and older. Although I have worked with a variety of conditions my area of clinical focus is rooted in what are called mood disorders. These include problems related to anxiety and depression. Please note that all clients must be residents of California.

Step Three: The Way I Work

One of the most important elements of my service is flexibility. This is why I provide my services in person, online, and over the phone. My goal is to lower as many barriers to therapy as possible. You can therefore choose between meeting me at my office in San Diego, over secure video conference, or over the phone.

Interested in Online Therapy?

I offer online therapy sessions for residents of California. If you own a desktop, laptop, or mobile device then you can leverage technology and receive counseling services from the comfort of your home.
