Sydell Weiner, PhDLife has a way of kicking you in the teeth when you least expect it. If you’re feeling lost and don’t know where to turn, help is on the way. A good therapist can get you through a difficult time and help you land on your feet.  I’m trained to listen without judgement and guide you on a path of hope and acceptance. If you’re looking for grief therapy or suffering with a mood disorder, you’ve come to the right place.


I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, with a Ph.D. from New York University. I have two Master’s Degrees and have been listed in Who’s Who in America numerous times. Besides being in private practice for over 20 years, I was a tenured professor at Cal State Dominguez Hills, where I trained most of the therapists practicing in the South Bay today.


I have a special interest in women who lost their mothers in childhood or adolescence. I also specialize in working with divorced and widowed adults. These losses are profound and often become quite complicated. You don’t mean for it to happen, but when unresolved issues from the past start playing out in the present, you know it’s time to get some help. Grief therapy is a process that can have many positive outcomes. With a trusted ally, you don’t have to go through it alone.

I have helped hundreds of people over the years and I’m here for you now. But the choice is up to you. Do you want to have a healthier relationship with both yourself and others? Or are you satisfied with the status quo? When you’re ready to move forward, help is just a phone call away.

Please take that first step and call or text me at 310-292-2538.
