all day, every day,
ALL THE TIME."
– Adrienne Loth
A head injury from a surfing accident left Adrienne unable to speak for more than two years, forestalling Adrienne’s plans to be a medical doctor. This challenging and traumatic experience instilled in her a passion for listening, and a deep ability to help people overcome extreme hardships. It was this passion that prompted Adrienne to redirect her energy to psychotherapy and the value of helping others to lead more enriched lives by turning adversity and perceived limitations into social, emotional, and professional success.
With more than 20 years of experience in the recovery community, Adrienne is able to address a variety of addictive behaviors. She helps her clients find forms of support that complement traditional recovery methods or otherwise collaborate on finding alternative methods that fit their recovery needs. Having served as an interventionist and case manager for numerous clients, she is comfortable including couple’s therapy, family work, and parent coaching into treatment. Adrienne also offers intensive clinical case management for both individuals and their families.
Adrienne’s approach is more action-oriented than traditional emotional therapy. She is open, direct, and very proactive when working with clients. By putting emotional and personal struggles in perspective, Adrienne offers realistic interventions that her clients can begin to implement immediately. A practicing Buddhist, Adrienne works closely with her clients on mindfulness.
Whether you’ve never been to therapy in your life or you’re looking to evolve and build upon past mental health and self-care work, Adrienne’s philosophy is: therapy should be something you look forward to, even when the work is hard.
Fundamentally, Adrienne believes that it is possible to work together so that her clients begin to thrive.

"The best of the best."
There’s something special about Adrienne - I think because she’s very transparent and seems so human and real, I’ve never held anything back. I truly know she’s non-judgmental like she’s survived similar issues or knows someone that has. Nothing is shocking. She’s also so invested in me. She really cares.
"An Incredible gift."
When Adrienne entered my life I was having a hard time figuring out how to be happy. I was struggling to protect myself and see my own self-worth. Through my time with Adrienne, I have become a new person. After just a year of working together, I am unbelievably happy and credit all of it to Adrienne.
"One in a million."
Adrienne's ability to go above and beyond to fit clients in her schedule, whether in a time of crisis or stability, her warmth, compassion, wisdom, and wit, is a style unto its own. Simply put, I wouldn’t be penning these words if not for this person. I wholeheartedly believe Adrienne is 1 in a million, there really isn’t anyone like her who does this work.
"A profound impact."
I have learned so much about myself during my sessions with Adrienne. Through all kinds of scary life events, Adrienne has helped me to find my voice, confidence, and to know that even in the worst of times, I am enough and things will be okay. I truly credit so many of my successes and proudest moments to Adrienne
