I am Signe Darpinian, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), as well as a Certified Eating Disorders Specialist and iaedp™-Approved Supervisor (CEDS-S). I have private practices in two California locations. I provide therapy to adolescents, young adults and adults. If you are taking a look at this site, I’m hopeful that you are ready to do the work it takes to change thoughts, feelings and behaviors that are no longer serving you. It sounds simple, but it’s not easy. Sometimes it takes someone else witnessing our process to help propel us forward so we can show up in a way that matches who we really are.

Welcome to my therapy practice!

You’ll see that I offer services in addition to therapy, including speaking engagements and a book with co-authors Wendy Sterling, MS, RD, CSSD and Shelley Aggarwal, MD, MS.

Feel free to peruse my site to get a feel for my services as well as my approach, to see if it feels like a fit for you.

"The highest goal a therapist can have for a client is to instill in them the knowledge that solutions to their problems lie within, then to pass on tools to help guide people to those powerful inner answers."
