Psychotherapist

Joy Davidson, Ph.D, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Los Angeles, CA

Clients have often asked me to explain “how” psychotherapy works and what “exactly" it does. I wish I had an easy response to those questions, but the reality is that psychotherapy is complicated and a bit different for everyone. It usually starts when you're ready to address a problem you’ve seen in front of you for awhile. Yet, really good therapy is not just about helping you tackle what bothers you; it’s also about showing you how to expand your life and your world--make it a grander, more inspiring one. Perhaps, in the final analysis (pun intended), psychotherapy allows you to fulfill your own promise and enables you to love others fully, fearlessly, and honestly.

Hillary Goldsher, Psy.D, MBA

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Los Angeles, CA

I believe that psychotherapy is a sacred process that allows clients to explore deeply held feelings and beliefs that are impacting their ability to live life as fully and joyfully as possible. I urget clients to explore and challenge feelings and behavior that are holding them back. I also guide clients to generate deep compassion and self love which is the foundating for recovery and healing. Psychotherapy is best done when it is a collaboration between therapist and client, thus making the process tailored to each individuals unique needs and experiences.

Psychotherapist

Lauren Muhlheim, Psy.D., CEDS

Clinical Psychologist

4929 Wilshire Boulevard, Suite 245, Los Angeles, CA 90010

My approach to psychotherapy is cognitive-behavioral. This therapy is a collaborative effort between therapist and client to solve the client’s problems and improve functioning. It is goal-directed and short-term. I work collaboratively with my clients to address current problematic thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that may be interfering with daily life and relationships. I try to provide rapid relief from uncomfortable symptoms while also promoting long-term behavioral changes which maintain gains and prevent relapse. I help empower clients to become their own therapists rather than foster their dependency on me.

In addition, unlike many other "therapists' or "counselors", he is a Clinical Psychologist (and one of the VERY few Clinical Psychologists holding Board-Certification). With more than 20 years of experience providing cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy, you can rest assured if you select Dr. Levine. He has been described as compassionate, warm & easy to speak to.

Psychotherapist

Mark Tinley, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

660 S Figueroa St #1030, Los Angeles, CA 90017

We manage things on our own just fine, but some things just don’t get better despite our best efforts. That’s where psychotherapy can help. It helps by developing new ways of looking at the issue, gaining a better understanding of the situation, learning new ways of thinking and exploring other options and choices, all with the aim to get unstuck from the old unproductive pattern. People can and do change, and you can too. It’s like most things, if you ignore it, nothing changes. But if you focus on it and work for a positive change, it does happen.

David Silverman, Licensed LMFT, EMDR Trained

Free 60 minute First Session/Consult

Within Driving Distance of Los Angeles, CA

My approach to psychotherapy does not involve years of talk about issues until the client reaches a "catharsis," and suddenly is cured. It is more of a collaboration and involves the client to engage in his own therapy. We look for solutions, rather than talking about "problems" endlessly. As a person-centered therapist, I believe an authentic, respectful and caring relationship with the client fosters growth and self-actualization. The use of cognive-behavioral methods, allows us to look for underlying beliefs the client may have about his place in the world, and unrealistic thought patterns, such as "all-or-nothing" thinking. These can be redirected to provide positive outomes.

Psychotherapist

Ellen Klavan, MA, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

420 1/2 North Larchmont, Los Angeles, CA 90046

The fundamental building block of successful psychotherapy is the relationship between the client and the therapist. If the client doesn't feel safe, accepted and respected, therapy cannot proceed effectively. So we start there--with a strong therapeutic alliance--and we begin to explore the underlying issues that have led to the problems or concerns the client comes to resolve. Often this takes us back to childhood, where many of these issues originate. We bring those childhood issues back to the present and see how understanding the past can help us change the way we interact in the present. Ultimately it is the clients goals that dictate the course of the therapy.

Psychotherapist

Carl H. Shubs, Ph.D.

Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Los Angeles, CA

The issue is not what happened to you, it’s the impact it had and how you are able to deal with it. Psychotherapy helps. It involves our talking together to address the problems you’re having in your life. We’ll see what works, what doesn’t, why not, what you’ve tried, and what other options there may be. We’ll look to understand how the difficulties came to be and what gets in the way of changing them. We’ll see what’s happening in your life now and how old patterns of thinking and behaving may interfere for you. We’ll explore other alternatives. I strongly believe people can change, and I see that happening in my office regularly. You’d be surprised how therapy can change your life.

Psychotherapist

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Los Angeles, CA 90077

James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.
