Our office is located in Laguna Hills, with offices also available in Gardena and Santa Ana.  

For clinical services and referrals from therapists conducted in the Laguna Hills office, we service Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel, Mission Viejo, San Juan Capistrano, San Clemente, Irvine, Lake Forrest, Coto De Caza, Laguna Beach, Tustin, Tustin Ranch, Rancho Santa Margarita, Ladera Ranch, Newport Beach, and Costa Mesa.  We have people from Los Angeles County and throughout Southern California who come to the office in Laguna Hills, but many find the Gardena office to be more convenient.

The office in Gardena is staffed by a full-time psychologist, Dr. Cliff Sabath, and therapist, Claudia Solorzano, as well.  Dr. Stone provides services as a psychiatrist at that office and typically interacts closely with both Dr. Sabath and Ms Solorzano so that patients are provided a degree of wrap-around services.  Our office in Gardena services Torrance, Gardena, Carson, and Long Beach.  We service all areas of the South Bay at this facility.

The office in Santa Ana services areas including Tustin, Huntington Beach, Orange, Fountain Valley, Anaheim, and Garden Grove.  Appointments in Santa Ana are scheduled on a case-by-case basis and often scheduled on weekends, including Sundays.  For more information, please contact us to learn more about the location that will best suit your needs.

 

For services as a psychiatrist expert witness, psychiatric legal consultant, or forensic psychiatrist, Dr. Stone typically will provide services throughout California and is available for out of state travel.  

However, given the importance of his role as a husband and parent, he limits distant travel to only the most critical cases and requests.  Thus, he will traditionally involve himself as a forensic psychiatrist or psychiatrist expert witness to those cases which permit daily commutes.  These include San Diego, San Bernardino County, Riverside County, Orange County, Los Angeles County, and certain regions of the Central Valley.    However, if you have a case or a situation that you would like Dr. Stone to consider, please contact our office.  Even in those situations where Dr. Stone does not believe that he is either available to or capable of successfully taking on your case, he has people to whom he can comfortably refer you.

 

At Windows of Opportunity, Inc, we provide clinical services in psychiatry throughout Southern California, Los Angeles County, Orange County, and San Diego County, however, there are some questions are resources that may be even better answered by contacting one of these resources below.  

Because these locations may change their names, addresses, or phone numbers periodically, please let us know if you find that any of these contacts have changed.
