"Hi. I’m Dr. Dean Leav, Psychologist in Recovery."

Welcome to my practice and thank you for taking the time to consider me as your psychologist/therapist. I have been in practice since 2007 and have been featured on ABC, NBC, and KCAL as an expert psychologist.


I work primarily with men who have hit “rock bottom” and would like help getting up. These men are often in crisis when we first meet.


The issues I address are typically related to unhealthy sexual behaviors, infidelity, financial recklessness, gambling, drugs/alcohol, dishonesty/lying, and relational conflicts.


Like these men, I, too, have hit “rock bottom.” I know the agonizing pain and sorrow all too well. I know what it is like to fail as a man, as a husband, and as a father. I have been on my own recovery journey and have been able to experience victory. I am very grateful for my sobriety.    


My goal for each man I work with is to provide hope and support while facilitating the recovery process. This usually requires us to dig deep and figure out why we engage in destructive behaviors. It also requires us to develop a treatment plan that specifically targets the maladaptive behaviors and reduces the chance of relapse. 


My therapy approach is a combination of psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, and the 12-Step recovery model. In addition, I will tell you what works and what does not work based upon the experiences of the men in recovery and my own recovery journey.

If you are tired of the man you have become and would like help making positive changes, please contact me.
