Fritz Hershey is a long-time beach resident. This self pronounced “waterman” loves the gifts of nature that the beach and ocean provide, and loves giving back to the beach community.
Fritz holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Arizona State University. He has a Master of Arts degree in Marriage & Family Therapy from Phillips Graduate Institute, and as an adjunct to his graduate studies, a certificate of specialty in Brief Therapies. His theoretical position is Cognitive-Behavioral Psychology, augmented with an eclectic blend of other Post-Modern therapies. Fritz says, “This blending creates a scientifically rigorous, potent and direct therapy, that offers quick relief in a short time.”
At Associated Counselors & Therapists, Fritz currently
performs psychotherapy across a broad range of presenting
conditions, with an emphasis on couples therapy and anxiety
reduction using highly effective behavioral, experiential, and
skill training models, offered in a time limited setting,
including Anger Management, control of addictions, OCD related
behaviors, and Smoking Cessation.
The success that Fritz achieves with his clients has attracted a lot of attention (on a national scale) to him. He currently receives referrals from
many local therapists and clinics, including the Dr.Phil
television show, and has appeared on many television and radio
shows to demonstrate his techniques.
Around the South Bay, Fritz volunteers time to do group and
individual therapy with at-risk teens for the Beach Cities
Health District and Project Touch.
Fritz’s short-term orientation offers an excellent opportunity for healthy, interested individuals to seek positive self-growth, self-improvement, change, and advancement in personal, educational, career, relationship, and life goals.
