Individual Therapy - Private Practice

Unfortunately, Roots of South LA is not offering individual therapy at this time.  However, below is a list of private practice directories to assist in finding a therapist that fits your needs.


If you find a therapist you like but the sliding scale is too high you can try to email them and ask if they have any reduced fee slots available.  These slots are not always advertised.
