I am extremely satisfied with the care I have received from Dr. Stepanoff and his staff. Upon my first visit he listened and acknowledged all my questions and concerns. He has guided me through a solid plan of treatment and I continue to benefit from regular visits with him and his awesome staff. His office was easy to locate. I've already recommended him to others because of the huge positive impact his center has had in my life. He is by far one of the best psychologists I've ever seen. I was very impressed.

I've been seeing Dr.Stepanoff now for almost two years and I must say that he is the best therapist I've ever had. I've had many problems with depression and anxiety and I've seen about 6 different therapists and psychiatrists, all of which diagnosed me as having some sort of anxiety disorder and/or severe depression...You know, the generic diagnosis every therapist gives their patients when they don't know what else to say!!! However, the diagnostic process was much more elaborate with Dr.Stepanoff. I explained to him that I've always been a "nervous" person and can't deal with stress very well but depression just kind of seems to hit me out of nowhere every 6 months or so. I always thought I was bipolar but Dr.Stepanoff did hours of testing on me (which I never had before even though I've seen just about every therapist in Southern California) and he diagnosed me as having Adult ADHD. Little did I know that this is one of the most misdiagnosed mental disorders in women and is often confused with being Bipolar because the symptoms are apparently very similar. No wonder I was never properly diagnosed! Needless to say, Dr.Stepanoff was truly a Godsend! I feel better than ever now that I'm taking the appropriate medication and understand what the root of my problems and impulsivity are. I must say I read some unfavorable reviews about him and felt compelled to write a review after what he's done for me in my life. If you're the person who's looking for the stereotypical therapist who sits and nods and lets you ramble on for hours about your life, Dr.Stepanoff is not the man for you! Don't get me wrong, he is a great listener and is very thorough in his work. However, I would describe him as a very hands-on kind of doctor in that he wants to find a solution for you and get to the root of your problems as soon as possible (without jeopardizing the quality of his work of course). Now I don't know about the rest of my depressed and anxious family but I want a solution to my losing my will to live as quickly as humanly possible! This is why Dr.Stepanoff has been perfect for me.... he got to the root of my problems quickly and made his job seem effortless. Highly recommended:-)

I have been seeing Dr. Stepanoff for almost 7 months and have also been a patient in the IOP program for substance abuse and mental health.  When I arrived at this practice I was in a pretty bad place in my life...and I too thought I did not need help but I was spinning out of control.  I am so grateful for making the decision to stay, the help and support I have received from the IOP program and staff and continue to receive from Dr. Stepanoff has made a difference in my life.  My depression and drug use controlled my life for many years and I am proud to say that with therapy, processing ,education and family night therapy  I have been given the tools necessary for me to move on through life.  It is very sad when I see comments such as the negative individuals below...who probably want to continue using and abusing there lives, usually you just don't want the help and blame anyone around you...been there.
