Psychotherapy Associates

Calvin Moore, II, M.A., MDiv, AMFT


Calvin Moore received his Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University in 2009. For the past four years, he has been my associate, and in that time, he completed his training of over 3000 hours of clinical experience. He is now on the verge of becoming a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.

In addition, Calvin is the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Los Angeles, and, as such, he has significant expertise in issues involving religion and spirituality. He provides therapy for individuals, couples, families and groups.

In Calvin’s words:

“I have extensive experience working with those who are grieving or in the midst of spiritual and emotional struggles. I also have done considerable work with people suffering from chronic diseases, as well as those who are close to the sufferer. My goal is to help them deal with the emotional strain that is an inevitable aspect of the disease process. 

Lastly, I have a particular interest in providing a safe haven for men – especially men of color – in which they can work through their unique psychological issues. 

I’m looking forward to helping you.”

 I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Perlman as my associate for the past two years.

In his own words: 

“I am dedicated to helping people face difficult experiences and emotions, in an effort to build a life they are invested in and excited about. It is my belief that every person can achieve a greater sense of self-fulfillment. With bravery and with care, real change is possible. This is something I am passionate about.”

Mark Stein, M.A., AMFT


As a therapist, Mark brings an open-minded, strength-based approach to help you navigate life’s emotional encounters. By offering a safe space to share your narrative and the underlying feelings involved, he supports you in constructively resolving conflict and adversity, so you can escape the ruts in which you might have gotten stuck.

Mark earned his Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University in 2017 and interned at Airport Marina Counseling Services. He works with individuals on the treatment of anxiety, depression, grief, anger, and problematic relationship issues, utilizing an empathic, psychodynamic approach. In addition, having an extensive background in the film and television industry, he brings a unique perspective to his work with entertainment professionals in both their personal and professional challenges. 

Mark has a number of other specific skills. 

First, he works with men as they face issues of masculinity, and as they negotiate the challenges that come with managing both career and family. Additionally, as a father of two, Mark brings a personal understanding of the challenges of parenthood in a complex modern world.

Next, as a Certified Anger Management Counselor, Mark sees anger not as a negative attribute, but rather a positive emotional reaction toward restoring agency and balance that can be managed with mindfulness, cognitive skills, and greater emotional awareness. 

Third, with regard to couples and relationships, Mark works to encourage greater communication and emotional interaction, while offering support and guidance for those managing the complexities of separation and divorce. 

Mark is currently seeing individuals and couples and is forming a weekly men's group. He can be reached by phone at 323-445-0931 or by email at
