Dr. Rochelle Perper: Therapy Changes

This past Thursday I was able to spend some time with a truly wonderful woman who also happens to be a very gifted therapist. Dr. Rochelle Perper is the owner and primary psychologist of Therapy Changes in Point Loma and offers a variety of services including child/adolescent, individual, couples, and family therapy.  She has diligently established this successful practice along with a team of therapists who provide support to those who need “focused guidance when you need it the most”.

Dr. Perper exudes warmth, compassion, and kindness and is unwavering in her commitment to helping others.  She has a gift in being able to instantly create a sense of comfort and safety with those she meets and works with.  If you are looking for support in the Point Loma area and would like to utilize your insurance, I highly recommend Dr. Perper. For more information regarding her practice, please view her website:

Center for Healthy Change: Julieann Myers

Julieann Myers is a dear friend and colleague of mine as well as the owner/founder of ‘Center for Healthy Change’ located in Del Mar. I had the pleasure of spending some time with her yesterday and left with renewed admiration regarding her passion for helping others.

She along with a few other clinicians provide individual, couples, and group therapy specializing in addictions, trauma, EMDR, athletic performance enhancement, ADHD, mindfulness, life/career coaching, and eating disorders. In addition, they provide intensive aftercare programming for individuals and their family members who have completed inpatient treatment as well as continuing care groups for SierraTucson/CRC alumni and family.

Julieann is an extremely compassionate and effective clinician who I have often referred to given the unwavering positive reviews received from my clients. If you would like to know more about Center for Healthy Change, feel free to view their website:

A Farewell to UCSD…

Today I said goodbye to my time at the University of California San Diego. I have been fortunate enough to serve as a contract psychologist at their CAPS (Counseling & Psychological Services) program for over a year and it has been beyond wonderful.

I have truly enjoyed working with undergraduate and graduate students and have found that they are some of the most motivated and hard working individuals I have had the honor to work with. I have had the privilege to share in a very unique chapter in their lives and had the joy of witnessing their growth. It has been a gift to be able to provide support, help them gain insight into themselves, their relationships , and their academic/career pursuits.

So many of those that I was able to work with were beautiful reminders of why I chose to become a psychologist and I am ever grateful for such an experience. And it has been humbling and quite moving to hear them share their experience in therapy with me and the ways in which I have helped create change in their lives. It is surreal to know that I have made a difference and I hope that I can continue to do so.

Choosing the Right Therapist

In my practice, I typically spend some time on the phone with potential clients in order to best determine whether or not we will be a good fit for one another.  However, it is always best to meet with a therapist in person as being in the room with them can help you experience their personality as well as style/approach.  In addition, it is usually helpful when those you know have provided a personal recommendation.  More often than not, it helps to create a sense of confidence in pursuing services when we know that those we trust have found the therapists services valuable. Therefore, if you would like to write a review (even if you are a colleague or friend and are familiar with my work), I encourage you to share your experience as it may help another who is considering taking the first step towards change .
