This work continues to prompt me deeper into how we are experiencing ourselves.
Hello, I'm Eric Weiss, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). I’m passionate about helping individuals, couples, & families create meaningful change and experience profound transformations. While I’m based in Culver City, I serve the Greater Los Angeles area and see clients virtually throughout California.
My Professional Background
With a lifelong commitment to education and a steadfast curiosity that continues to guide my practice, I’ve focused on gaining experience that enhances my ability to support my clients.
I hold a Master’s of Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica, which helped me to understand how the soul can be a part of the work.. And I completed a second Master’s in Clinical Psychology from Antioch to round out all of that experience with a solid knowledge base necessary to provide the care and support I hope to offer you.
As a counselor certified in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, I possess a deep understanding of the mind-body connection and its impact on emotional well-being. This specialized approach allows me to help you navigate and release unresolved trauma, integrate new coping strategies, and cultivate a greater sense of resilience and empowerment.
Additionally, my certification in couples & sex therapy through AACAST equips me with the tools and insights necessary to navigate the complexities of relationships. I am committed to creating a safe and nonjudgmental space where you can explore intimate concerns, enhance communication with your partner, and foster deeper connections.
My Personal Background
Outside of my professional life, I find inspiration and fulfillment in exploring the depths of the human experience. With a background in the world of acting (including roles as an actor, talent agent, casting director, coach, and director) I understand the importance of genuine connections and the power of seeing, being seen, and being met.
Driven by an unwavering thirst for knowledge and growth, I dedicated over 10,000 hours to exploring mind-body practices. Including Zen Buddhism (cultivation of mindfulness, stillness and presence), Yoga (moving with purpose and alignment) and 5 Rhythms Dance (movement of full expression).
I spent years in the Mankind Project, where I came to understand just how much shame men in our culture hold, and how crucial it is that we process this. I learned that often another man’s work is my work, too.
And then there are dogs. Only later in life did I come to the realization that indeed “GOD” spelled backwards is “DOG” (and no, I don’t consider that a coincidence). Our dog, Franklin, is a daily reminder of the inherent goodness, presence & connection available within and around us.
It is my belief that by embracing our shared humanity and interconnectedness, we can uncover new paths to healing and growth. And I look forward to the opportunity to walk alongside you on your path.
