Given Guidance

Given Guidance is a private practice owned by Jamie Given, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC). We provide family counseling services to families in La Crescenta, CA and Los Angeles County. Our primary mission is to guide clients to find balance.

Looking for a therapist can be a daunting task. It can be an overwhelming to find a person to trust with your inner most thoughts, painful experiences, and core emotions. Starting the clinical process is also difficult if you do not feel comfortable with your therapist. Therefore, we offer a free 15-minute phone consultation, prior to therapy treatment, so that you can feel comfortable sharing introductory information and determine if therapy could be beneficial for you. Before your consultation please read ourĀ practice policies.

Life is filled with challenges that leave us feeling defeated and unsure where to turn for support. Maybe these feelings are a response to a lifelong struggle, loss, a particular traumatic experience, intolerable grief, or a painful relationship. Each challenge is personally unique and comes with obstacles that can seem unbearable, especially when we attempt to manage them alone.

Therapy is the first courageous step toward discovering you no longer have to face these challenges on your own. By creating a secure and affirming space, we begin to explore what you need to experience healing, healthy relationships, and belonging.

I work by meeting you where you’re at in your journey. Together we identify your potential for growth. Working from an Attachment-Based and Person-Centered approach, I provide clients with a genuine and accepting environment. It is my hope to accompany you on your journey toward self-discovery, increased self-awareness and personal restoration.
