“The only way out is through.”

Strength-Based Therapy in Downtown Los Angeles

About Us

Through the Woods Therapy Center was founded in 2015 by Jennie Steinberg, LMFT, LPCC. We are a group of therapists who are strength-based, which means we believe that growth and change come from building a strong relationship with our clients and helping them to build on their unique skills, assets, and gifts.  We come from a feminist, LGBTQ+ affirmative, culturally aware perspective, and principles of social justice inform our work with clients.

It takes an enormous amount of courage to reach out and ask for support, and we strive to make that process as comfortable as possible.
