A Message from Founding Director Mari A. Lee, LMFT, CSAT-S

"Are you or is someone you love struggling with sex or pornography addiction, infidelity and secrets that are hurting your life and relationship? If so, I am glad you found us.

Our dedication is to support each client step-by-step in a confidential and non-judemental setting. We specialize in counseling for sex addiction, counseling for women, and counseling for couples. At GCS, we provide experienced support, solid tools, and a focused counseling plan with accountability so that you can build a life that is rewarding and relationships you are proud of. 

We are not "bobble head" therapists, and we do not believe that counseling is supposed to last forever. Rather it is a season of focused support.

We will help you meet your goals so that you leave GCS with life long tools and a map of support to take with you on your journey forward. You are welcome to contact us either via phone at (818) 521-4370, or via email at info@growthcounselingservices.com - we are here to help you or those you love."

Counseling You Can Trust

Choosing the right therapist who is licensed and experienced is an important step in your healing

Every person struggles at some point in their life and needs support along the way. We are experienced, highly skilled, licensed and certified counselors with a solid reputation in our field. Whether you are struggling with sex or pornography addiction, are the betrayed partner or spouse of a sex addict, a couple who needs support healing a hurting relationship, or if you are dealing with depression or anxiety, we work with our clients affordably and confidentially, step-by-step in order to help each person move forward in their life and relationships. Together we will help move you out of anxiety, addiction, hurt and shame toward a more balanced and joyful life.

When I first started counseling I had so many mixed emotions, mostly I felt hurt, overwhelmed, and alone. My therapist at Growth Counseling taught me specific tools, and helped me re-focus my lens in order to make healthy choices and heal. I really appreciate the support I have received; it hasn’t been easy, but is has been so worth it!
