With facilities in South Pasadena and Valencia, California, Herman and Associates is a modest counseling facility, which serves as the private practice of Dr. Kenneth L. Herman and Patricia Sullivan. The organization offers a wide range of flexible behavioral health services including help with developmental issues, learning disabilities and addiction and co-occurring disorders. All treatment plans are individualized and can be made to suit most schedules.
Treatment and Staff
Before beginning a program, all clients go through an initial intake and assessment process to help the staff members determine their needs. While on-site detox and stabilization services are not available, those in need can get referrals to nearby programs as necessary. Upon admission, participants attend some combination of individual, group, couples and family therapy sessions that emphasize best practices, psychoeducation and an interpersonal approach. As many clients come in for developmental and childhood-related issues, many counseling sessions delve into early formative experiences as well. While basic support for anxiety and depression are available, those in need of more intensive dual diagnosis support may need to seek out additional care. While 12-step participation is not always required, it may be encouraged in some cases.
The staff at Herman and Associates includes Herman and Sullivan; Herman is a PhD-level psychologist and LMFT while Sullivan has a Master’s in education. The staff also includes Jessica Hess, who is also a PhD-level psychologist. The organization also consults with outside physicians, psychologists, occupational therapists, educational therapists and attorneys as well.
In addition to the formal therapy programs mentioned above, the organization also offers a host of diagnostic tests and assessments for clients with learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD and autism. Special support services are also available for children who are intellectually gifted as well. Parenting classes and executive coaching services are also offered. Finally, those who complete a program can also work with counselors to develop stepped down aftercare plans.
Overall, Herman and Associates is a well-rounded organization with flexible and individualized counseling options. Depending on their needs, clients can attend group, individual, family and couples counseling as necessary, all with a flexible psychotherapeutic approach depending on the needs of each client. Though many of the services offered are aimed at younger clients and families, counseling is also available for adults dealing with substance abuse and related behavioral programs. Although participants in need of more intensive psychiatric care may need to seek additional services elsewhere, Herman and Associates remains a strong resource for those in the area.
