Thanks for coming to our website! I'm so glad you have been courageous enough to seek out help for what you're going through. Let me tell you a little about myself. I had been fortunate to work in a large private practice called RCA Counseling that has served the San Diego area for over 25 years. There I received expert training in the areas of sexual addiction as well as marital and individual therapy. After 8.5 amazing years there I have ventured out to start my own group practice called Andrew Last Family Counseling. As a skilled and compassionate Christian therapist I can help you work through hardship to find healing. I'm a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist and have extensive experience in working with those who have been caught up in out-of-control sexual behaviors. I was trained by Dr. Patrick Carnes, the foremost expert in Sexual Addiction in the world. I also am passionate about working with couples to help them get out of the negative cycles in which they get stuck. I've had the privilege to journey with countless couples and helped them to find the connection and closeness they are looking for. In addition to these areas I treat individuals and families. If you're dealing with addiction, depression, anxiety, trauma or relationship issues, I can help you find healing. As a Christian, I work well with clients who are looking for a therapist who will support them in their faith. In addition, I provide treatment for many clients who don't have a particular faith. My goal is to meet you where you are at and help you move forward. I have offices in Mission Valley and Carlsbad. I have been married to my lovely wife for 12 years and we have a two children. In my spare time I love surfing, mountain biking, fitness and playing with my kids. I was born and raised in San Diego and spent 4 years in Europe living in Amsterdam and Florence. Contact me today so we can talk about what you're dealing with and how I can help you.
As Andrew stated, thank you so much for visiting our website. We are so glad that you have found the strength and courage to find help for what you are going through. Andrew Last and I both worked for RCA Counseling prior to starting Andrew Last Family Counseling, Inc. RCA Counseling specialized in providing Christian therapy for anxiety, depression, addiction, and relationship issues and has been in practice for over 25 years. During my time at RCA Counseling, I worked alongside Aaron Reinicke and Andrew Last who are two of the leading Certified Sexual Addiction Therapists (CSAT) in San Diego. With their training, I currently work with men who are struggling with sexual addiction and looking to bring restoration to their lives and the lives of their families. I have helped many individuals and families find the healing and restoration they are seeking and I am confident that I can help you find healing as well. In addition to working with individuals healing from addiction, I also specialize in providing counseling for those seeking to recover from symptoms of anxiety and depression. I am EMDR Level II trained and provide counseling for anxiety and depression for persons of all ages. Alongside my time at RCA Counseling, I also worked at New Alternatives, Inc., and provided trauma counseling and recovery services for foster youth. My work included providing extensive family therapy services and individual counseling services to foster youth of all ages and their respective families. I currently am still contracted with New Alternatives, Inc., and continue to provide counseling services to foster youth residing in Escondido. In addition to being able to provide family counseling, I also provide counseling for families who have adopted children or who are considering adoption. Some unique facts about myself are that I am married, I am very active and enjoy hobbies such as surfing, motorcycling, backpacking, and traveling, and that I am originally from Tel Aviv, Israel. My father was employed by the Department of Defense when I was young which allowed us to be stationed and live throughout the world. Having lived in another country has provided me with unique life experiences and a unique perspective that I bring into my therapy with clients. Thank you again for visiting our site and I look forward to connecting and working with you. Feel free to contact me today to discuss what you are dealing with and how I can help.
I started working with Andrew soon after discovering that I am a sex addict. I only worked with him for a short time, as I moved away. But in the months that I worked with him, he really helped me to open up and be honest about my past and my problems. He gave me tools that I still use and I am grateful for his help.
Devoted Therapist and Exceptional Colleague
I've worked with Andrew since he started private practice, and I'm not exaggerating when I say that every interaction has been supportive, positive, and beneficial. I refer clients to him with complete confidence, knowing he always puts his clients first. Andrew is committed to his craft, continually bettering his skills as a therapist.
Full of Integrity, Open to Others, A Compassionate Listener
Andrew has been a very dear friend of mine for 15 years. He possesses many wonderful qualities that, I have no doubt, make him an excellent therapist. First, he is one of the best listeners I know. He shows compassion, gentleness, and a respect for your story, no matter what it might be. Second, he is incredibly accepting and open to others. I have never once felt judged by him, and I have also never heard him express judgment toward others. And third, Andrew is a man of true integrity. He is committed to serving others in his profession, and throughout his personal life, and it is clear that he lives with a deep sense of calling and love for others.
Andrew is an excellent therapist. Andrew is knowledgeable in sexual addiction treatment and is also able to bring a Christian spiritual approach to therapy.
Andrew is able to help you see through all the pain and help you focus in what matters in a marriage...love! He has been amazing and helped my husband and I find our way back to each other.
I have known Andrew for many years and as a pastor I recommend many of my congregational members to his practice. They have received professional, compassionate, and wise counsel and many have shared with me their gratitude for the care Andrew extended. Particularly appropriate in our culture is the ongoing struggle with sexual addiction and Andrew's skillful care in this area has provided hope to individuals and couples who have been devastated by this addiction. I highly recommend him to individuals, couples, and families who are seeking help and hope!
Could Not Recommend More...
Andrew is someone you can trust to help you look back and look ahead with wisdom, compassion and clarity! He is a fantastic guide on the side who is an excellent listener and prudent counselor. I could not recommend Andrew's services more!
Andrew gets to the core of the issue and brings about healing and change

I've known Andrew for 16 years and believe him to be a very solid, kind, caring friend. Andrew has a real passion for helping people. I've been impressed by the education he has received and the practice he has built. Andrew is a great listener and I would readily refer him to anyone looking for a therapist.
