About me

Greetings, I'm Marianna Dobak, an LCSW situated in Southern California, offering telehealth services statewide. My practice specializes in aiding adults facing anxiety, stress, and life transitions through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Client-Centered Therapy, tailored to meet individual needs. I believe therapy should be customized for each client. I primarily employ CBT and Client-Centered Therapy but remain flexible to adapt techniques as required.
My path to becoming a therapist has been diverse, encompassing roles such as an Emergency Medical Technician, and peer counselor. Through these experiences, I've developed a deep appreciation for helping others achieve personal growth and self-awareness.
