Hi and welcome to my website. My name is Kitty Cleary Adamovic and I am a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, providing services to families and individuals in Seal Beach, Long Beach, South Bay, and North Orange County.
Finding support to help deal with your overwhelming and/or emotional issues can be frustrating and scary at times. I have an interactive, collaborative, solution focused, and deeper level psychodynamic approach, where we work together to help you understand the distressing issues more deeply, while learning coping strategies and new skills to help you function now. This combined approach helps you get some temporary relief while you work more deeply to alleviate the difficult issues more completely.
Working with me, you can expect personalized, quality service, and a person dedicated in helping you feel better and reach your goals. Going to therapy now, shows that you are proactively working towards a healthier you. It’s time to begin to move in a new direction towards the life you want.
