Marc is Alyce’s co-facilitator in the West Los Angeles Men’s Group. Marc has 30 years of anger management and domestic violence group experience and of providing marital therapy & couples treatment. He has also conducted hundreds of seminars for high conflict couples seeking to improve their communication skills and conflict management techniques. and the seminars, may be helpful for couples who do not have a pattern of physical abuse and intimidation, within the last 6 six months, and can benefit from educational approaches to marital conflict.

You may call Alyce, or Marc, to do an intake at either Alyce’s Long Beach  office by calling  562 493-1161 to leave a message for Alyce at option 2.

  • Our intake fee is $200. for the one and a half hour interview.  
  • Group sessions are $70. per session, and it is a monthly fee.  
  • Our groups are approved by the County of Los Angeles to meet the 52 week court ordered classes.
    We can provide a superbill to help you receive some benefits from your health insurance, if they are a PPO.
  • Our groups focus on changing the beliefs that support verbally controlling?and abusive behaviors.
  • Each group is facilitated by male/female teams.  
  • Professionally facilitated groups for men with behaviors ranging from controlling verbally abusive to being physically violent.

The majority of our group members are self referred and not coming because the court sent them. This means that there is more awareness and motivation for change present in our groups. If you have a desire to stop controlling & abusive behavior, we have a great track record for helping you make the changes you’re looking for.  Confidentiality, is a priority and has been maintained in the past, despite the presence of notable persons.

Only participation in Anger Management / Domestic Violence Groups or Classes will satisfy the court requirement for the 52 weeks of enrollment.  However, Marc or Alyce may see individuals or couples for private treatment sessions when the man or woman self refers or volunteers for coming to treatment AND when there has been no physical violence for more than 6 months. Couples, or marital, therapy is not appropriate when one partner is using intimidation, abuse or violence. More information about this topic HERE

It is often said that ‘those men don’t change.’ ?This is true for men who do not enter treatment.?We have witnessed tremendous changes with our men. ?Not just in their abuse behavior, but in their attitudes ?about respect, empathy and responsibility.
