Dritsas Psychological Services was founded by Dr. Denise Dritsas on classic principals of development, adaptation, and managing emotion and behavior without the use of psychoactive medications. With an ability to serve San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties, our Psychologists and Marriage and Family Therapists provide psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychological assessment services for adults, adolescents, seniors, couples seeking resolution and growth, and military transition therapy.

We believe in the human capacity to heal, accept, love and grow from our life experiences. Our most treasured beliefs and relationships help us through the pain and difficult times in life. We believe there is no point so low from which we cannot only recover, but gain wisdom and strength as well. We focus our treatment style on longer term emotional and character growth, rather than simple symptom reduction that comes with using psychoactive medications.

Our clinicians can be considered generalists in that we treat people from adolescence through advanced age and across the full diagnostic spectrum as well as issues of normal growth and transition.  Issues common to our practice include depression, anxiety, eating disorders, thought disorders, OCD, relationships, childhood trauma, chronic pain, addiction, military transitions, parental support, bipolar, sexuality and gender issues, and personality disorders.  

We offer both in office and remote therapy sessions through VSee which utilizes the latest in secure HIPAA compliant Video Technology.  

Please call or email our office for an individual, couples or family therapy consultation today.
