Hello and thanks for visiting April30th.org, home page of Pasadena therapist Petar Sardelich LMFT/PT/MAC. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (#44180), Licensed Psychiatric Technician (PT25861), and Masters level Addictions Counselor (#5442). Since 1984, I’ve provided adult and adolescent mental health services for inpatient and outpatient settings. As such, I have a varied experience with abuse, trauma, depression, grief/loss, issues of personal growth, relationships, anxiety, stress, and mental illness. I have also worked extensively with addictions of all types, and related issues (“codependency”, eating disorders, alcoholism, dual diagnosis).
My responsibilities have ranged from Licensed Psychiatric Technician (where much of my experience in mental health and medications comes from), to direct care counselor and therapist, Quality Director, Program Director, and Assistant Administrator. Currently I’m in private practice, teaching, providing clinical supervision to pre-licensed therapists, and providing staff training and consultation. If you are looking for any of these services, I can be contacted at this address.
In the interest of our efforts to “put ourselves out of a job”, there’s lots of content available on the site. Some to help people get to know us, other content that serves simply as an effort to be helpful. There’s what we hope is practical and principled information available to current and prospective clients, students, professionals new and old. Please have a look around- we hope the perspectives are useful in some way.
Am happy to note as well that in order to provide a broader range of services, and serve people whom it might be difficult otherwise, we’ve added a low-cost component! We’ve taken on a Marriage and Family Therapist Intern, Sarah Wood MS, MFTI (#66300). Sarah is providing low cost and sliding scale services for children, adolescents, and adults. More detailed information about Sarah and her areas of focus can be found at her website, sarahwoodtherapy.com.
