Neil Schierholz PsyD

Licensed Psychologist - Orgonomic Psychotherapy

See if We Should Work Together

Dr. Neil Schierholz

People often ask me about my education, training, and experience. What they usually want to know is “do you have the knowledge, skill, and experience to really help me?”

Beyond credentials, research indicates the single most important factor in therapy is the relationship you have with your therapist.

I, too, have found this to be true. One of the best ways to know if I can help you is by finding out for yourself what it’s like to talk with me. That’s why I usually encourage people to meet with me. That way you can determine for yourself if we are a match and we can talk about any questions, concerns, and doubts you might have.

To schedule an initial consultation for you or someone you care about, or to just learn more, simply give me a call at (310) 866-0440. You can also use my online calendar to schedule a convenient time to talk with me on the phone.
