Dr. Ron Gad has created a specialized private practice that centers around professional and personal identity. He has often discussed the importance of finding a therapist that is a perfect match – both in personality and style as well as in the area of focus. He believes that it is too hard to be everything to everyone, so he has found his specialty and developed his purpose as a therapist, and he aspires to help you do the same in your personal and professional life.
Ron helps clients discover and develop a strong sense of self - relationally, professionally, and personally. He centers his practice on the notion of identity. Who are you, really, and how can you be most true to yourself? The biggest struggles people face are when they attempt to live up to what others expect of them or even who they THINK they SHOULD be. His philosophy is entirely about helping you be who you are... not to change you into someone else.
Ron is a depth psychotherapist that believes that you are experiencing anxiety or depression or unfulfillment as a result of all of your experiences - from childhood through this very moment. Together you will dig through all of it to help you make sense of why you feel anxious, or why you're not happy, or why you can't acknowledge the accomplishments that are clear to everyone around you. Through this deeper look at who you have been and the patterns you have fallen into, you will gain insight and understanding into why you are who you are, and how to tap into the best version of yourself.
Dr. Ron is a husband, a father, and a former businessman turned psychotherapist. He obtained a Dual BA in English and Education with minors in Religious Studies and Philosophy, an MA in Counseling Psychology, and a PhD in Clinical Psychology. He is a researcher and published author that focuses on how people find meaning and purpose in their lives. He is currently publishing a series of books on the way people connect to art, media, and technology as a means of finding answers in their own lives.
He is a practicing therapist in Beverly Hills, a clinical supervisor and teacher for pre-licensed therapists, and director of the thriving Beverly Hills Therapy Group. Ron sees clients in his boutique-style office in Beverly Hills, conducts tele- and video-therapy for those who would rather not travel, and provides limited concierge in-home visits for select clients that prefer the most elite level of confidentiality.
Ron offers a complimentary phone session so that he can get a better understanding of what's going on for you, so that you can get a feel for the way he thinks he can help you through it, and so that both of you can really get a sense of whether or not he will be the right fit for you. Because he believes that specialty and fit is the utmost importance, he will always suggest an alternative option for your therapeutic process if the two of you are not a perfect match.
