rediscover your calm

Get Started

We provide sincere therapy in Encinitas.

You didn’t plan to suffer so much and you don’t need to. Every day we help people who are overwhelmed feel in control again. Whether it is something personal you haven’t been able to change on your own or a relationship that is causing you pain, you can feel better. People who are in despair find hope by engaging in a therapy process that is supportive, honest, and focused.

We actively work with you to not only feel better but to transform your life. We are in the business of helping people feel better and live well.

What is living well? Being connected in relationships you enjoy, accomplishing goals you pushed off too long, or feeling less afraid to fail come to mind, but it looks different for everyone. Let’s figure out what it means for you.

We started Coastal Therapy Group in Encinitas because we love this city, and we want to be a part of making it an even better place to live. People come to Coastal Therapy Group for a variety of reasons and we give each person the support they need to meet their goals, feel strong, and build a life worth savoring and cultivating.

Lindsey G. Robertson, PhD


I help adults of all ages make sense of unexpected suffering, navigate seasons of transition, and reconnect with the relationships, truths, and values that bring freedom and hope. I have an attentive, compassionate, honest, and down-to-earth style, and I seek to create a space where you can be yourself, feel understood, experience relief, and grow as a person. Wherever you are in your process, I would love to talk with you.

Reid Kessler, PsyD


I specialize in helping late teens, 20s, and 30s navigate difficult transitions in life. Anxiety and depression are a warning light that signals that something needs to be understood and addressed in a thoughtful way. I have a relational, supportive, and direct style that helps people regain their strength and clarify the life they want. I look forward to talking with you.
