Edward Garren is a California licensed psychotherapist, offering counseling services to individuals, couples and families.

"The purpose of therapy is to remove blocks to truth; to help you abandon any patterns of belief that no longer serve you in a productive way; to implement self-forgiveness.
Therapy can alleviate suffering and open the door to peace of mind. It can assist in separating illusion from reality and even reality from truth.
Finally, it can help you to learn to make your decisions from internal prompts because you have created an internal locus of control."
