Therapy with WebPsych is about helping you when you’re struggling with anxiety, overwhelming stress, negative thinking, communication problems, or difficulties in your relationship. What makes therapy unique with me is my experience and understanding of the unique stressors that Latinos and other people of color often experience in our society, especially when we spend much of our time working or living in “white spaces.” As a fellow Latino professional, my practice is dedicated to providing you with culturally competent therapy that embraces your entire being and uses your strengths and differences to your advantage.
Recent technological advances give you the highest quality care and ease via “virtual” (online) therapy. Virtual sessions offer the same high-quality attention as a visit to my office, without backing out of your driveway.

Since 1998, I’ve had the fortune of helping upwardly-mobile Latinos navigate through the internal and external obstacles they face on their way to achieving the success, authentic happiness, balance, and purpose they want in their lives. I’ve been through it, and I know what it’s like to come out of a working-class family with a lack of resources and mentors, and little more than a burning desire to make something of myself. I’ve had to face the damaging messages I internalized from my family and from a society that couldn’t see my value as a Latino. But as I fought each step of the way toward a better life, a higher income, and a seat at the upper-class tables of our society, I always knew the bigger purpose of it all.
My purpose has always been to help fellow Latinos overcome the unique obstacles and stressors that we face in our society, by learning to love ourselves and our culture, knowing and using our strengths, becoming the best at what we do, and developing strong shoulders for other Latinos to stand on. I believe that a great therapist is one who has experienced great difficulties in life, from which he himself or she herself has emerged and created as passionate, successful, and joyful a life as he or she asserts to help you create for yourself. I’m passionate about sharing my extensive training and unique life experience as a Latino in order to help others further their success and happiness in life. I thus created WebPsych to help Latino professionals go from stressed out and out of step to walking through life with swagger in it. I serve professionals with individual therapy and couples therapy at my office in the westside of Los Angeles, California, and see clients online via live video sessions.

I’m dedicated to being your partner as you move past your struggles and challenges in order to unlock your fullest potential. My passion is to share my experience and training so that you can build a life that is joyful, sustainable, adventurous, and loving.
I saw Dr Ortiz for 2 years. He was exceptionally kind and understanding. I shared with him all of my emotional challenges and he was able to give me feedback and helped me make changes in my thinking and life. He provided a very safe environment to share my struggles. Seeking out him as a therapist was one of my best life decisions.
I came to see Dr. Ortiz because of non-stop anxiety I've suffered all my life. I had previously been diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder, but nobody had been able to help me. Dr. Ortiz taught me to "self-soothe", slow down, and to take risks and express myself with people. I learned to ask for what I wanted, rather than fretting over what I wasn't getting or what wouldn't work out for me. Dr. Ortiz is a gem. I don't know how I would have become who I am now without him.
I saw Dr Ortiz because I was going through a painful separation/divorce. He helped me confront my grief, understand my anger and sadness, and express what I need. I feel so much more confident now.
I have Dr. Ortiz to be an effective and caring therapist. He’s given me and my family insight into destructive behavior patterns we’ve developed, and he’s given us constructive suggestions for doing things differently. Our family dynamics are unquestionably healthier.
Dr. Ortiz is one great therapist. Our son began to feel better after the first meeting with Dr. Ortiz, and each week he learned more and made more meanings from his loss. He is happy about that relationship and everything else, thanks to Dr. Ortiz.
