Psychotherapist

Miriam Davis, M.A., M.F.T.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Toluca Lake, CA

Psychotherapy is an exploration of the internal world of the client, using that person's external experiences as a clue to what the person has experienced and believes about him or herself. When people discuss their life histories and their present difficulties I work with them to understand what the connections are, what they may be reliving and what may be preventing them from making positive and healthier choices and changes in their lives. The focus is on the present, using the past as a source of important information. Most clients experience a new, freer and stronger sense of themselves and a better ability to deal with their relationships and with life's unpredictable events.

Psychotherapist

Ellen Klavan, MA, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Toluca Lake, CA

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Toluca Lake, CA

All of us have concerns and issues of a relational or psychological nature. Talking through these concerns in an objective, safe and nonjudgmental relationship of trust with a experienced therapist is what psychotherapy can offer you. Psychotherapy can help you think through life's perplexing problems as well as assist you in knowing yourself better allowing you to make clearer choices, improve important relationships and enhance the meaning and quality of your life. I have helped many people through my 32 years of practice to face, embrace and resolve their life's difficulties in an atmosphere of honesty, support and reassurance. Perhaps psychotherapy can do that for you as well.

So often people think about how well they're functioning in life and, yes, that's crucial, but often people forget that we are here to enjoy our lives. I think that often times people walk around carrying sadness or pain that they're not even fully aware of and part of their minds have given up. They believe this is their lot in life. Well, there are many roads to happiness, not just one, and I'd like to help people feel feelings and get in touch with parts of themselves they've become cut off from. Together, we can discover your way to feeling better and more alive!

Having the desire to deeply experience, explore, and feel our emotions that are related to both present and past circumstances is at the core of the process.

Psychotherapist

Sheri Rose-McCashin, M.S., LMFT,

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (MFC 28036)

Within Driving Distance of Toluca Lake, CA

Psychotherapy involves a confidential meeting with a trained therapist for the primary purpose of addressing the issues and concerns of a client. This professional and confidential relationship is to increase the client's awareness and choices. Active listening, feedback,exercises in session, homework (as needed), psychoeducation are utilized to facilitate increase awareness, growth and competence. Having a client work through difficulties (even if they can't change others or a situation) and have ways to respond to their satisfaction and with a renewed sense of themselves is very satisfying. I generally recommend a full physical/lab tests to rule out medical causation for mood disorders.

Psychotherapist

Joy Davidson, Ph.D, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Toluca Lake, 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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Toluca Lake, CA

Merely deciding to enter therapy is a hard decision to most people. Nevertheless, it can be a life-changing decision which involves taking control of your life and no longer accept things as they have been. Although the support of family and friends can be helpful, a professional help from an expert and objective person is sometimes most needed. I work with complex relationship issues, depression, anxiety, stress, sexual trauma, sex and love addiction, self-esteem, teen issues, and integration of faith and psychology. I welcome you in the safety and comfort of my office to talk openly about what's going on for you in your life and the next step that best meets your goals and needs.

Steven Shaps Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Toluca Lake, CA

What is Psychotherapy? First of all many people often hold negative connotations about this form of exploration and treatment. It does not have to be that way. The First negative connotation is, is that something is wrong and or someone has a mental problem that colors their view of them self. In the beginning of my sessions, I make it my aim to dissolve the negative connotations and provide a safe environment for the clients I work with. Secondly I explain to prospective clients, that nothing is wrong with them, and that it is a matter of understanding what has remained in the dark. From there we explore the many avenues open us for approaching issues constructively.

Rick Deaton, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Toluca Lake, CA

I have almost 20 years experience treating individuals and couples in psychotherapy. I find that finding a good match with your psychotherapist is of utmost importance. One needs to feel safe with the therapist and in the environment in order to feel more comfortable to share extremely personal and become emotionally vulnerable for the process to be more beneficial. I have treated individuals and couples of ethically diverse backgrounds, the LGBTQ community who have offered me the feedback of feeling surprisingly comfortable undertaking the psychotherapeutic process with me.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of Toluca Lake, CA

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.

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.

Psychotherapy brings insight, and there is some relief in this--sometimes even joy. But what heals people from pain, freeing them to move on from developmental states of being stuck, is a relationship of integrity and empathic responsiveness. Together the client and the clinician explore the issues that brought him or her through the door. It's a safe place to feel your feelings, to cry any necessary tears, and to say what must be said. More than this, it's a regularly recurring chance to be heard as you figure out what you want your life to be, and how you can become the stronger person that you ultimately are.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Toluca Lake, CA

The word psychotherapy is made up of two root words. 'Psyche' means soul or life spirit and 'therapeuein' is to tend or render service. In this context, psychotherapy is in service to life spirit. It is dedicated to exploring the inner landscape of the individual as well as developing ego strength in the outer world of relationships, work, and creativity. The journey often begins with a desire for deeper meaning or curiosity about life. Is there more than meets the eye or is it simply a struggle to survive? Is there a way to decipher your nightly dreams? Are emotions serving you or blocking the way? Feel free to contact me if these questions intrigue you or you want to know more .

If you have a high fever, normally you would go see a physician to figure out what is wrong. So why not see a professional when you're having a hard time fighting life's challenges? A therapist can help you dissect a problem - a problem or stressor causing emotional distress - then help you figure out how to solve it. This is similar to the physician providing you with an antibiotic to fight off that virus. Your mental health is just as important as your physical health, if not more. A disruption in your emotional well-being has shown to cause serious long term problems, so why not reach out for some extra support?

Psychotherapy can provide you with insights and concrete strategies for coping and growing. We all have experienced frustrations from childhood that can develop into triggers, provoking intense feelings. Therefore we look for triggers and their roots, explore thoughts and feelings to facilitate understanding and healing. The focus is on new coping skills, relaxation techniques, restructuring your thoughts. You also learn to live more consciously and apply new strategies. It takes time -- it’s like building muscle strength. In close collaboration, we will together monitor your changes and process your reactions to weekly events as they relate to our work.

Psychotherapist

David Silverman, Licensed LMFT, EMDR Trained

Free 60 minute First Session/Consult

Within Driving Distance of Toluca Lake, 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.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

One of the things I love most about my career as a psychotherapist is teaching and supervising interns in becoming Postmodern Therapists. This way of working focuses on a client's inherent resources for growth and healing. I focus on solutions, rather than on problems. Through deep, empathic connection, individuals are safe to open up, express their life long fears and challenges and experience the joy of moving beyond whatever "story" they've been stuck in. Clients experience this work as creative and energizing, as they explore their preferred selves and rewrite their life scripts. From depression, anxiety fear and confusion to clarity, healing and growth.

Therapy should be challenging. Growth and change can be exciting, but also uncomfortable, and at times even painful. While our relationships to certain patterns and ways of being may feel unhealthy or dysfunctional, they are also often familiar and comfortable. The work of letting go of these ways of being sometimes requires stepping into the unknown. We will take those steps together, working at whatever pace feels most productive to you.

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.

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.

In psychotherapy together, you and I, we will work to understand the meaning of the symptoms and/or situations that brought you into psychotherapy in the first place. Whatever the symptom there is a reason for it? Together we will discover why you are suffering this. We will look to clues from past ( family and relational dynamics) and see discover what unconscious thoughts, patterns and beliefs might be the source of this suffering. Much of the healing that will occur in our work together will come from making the unconscious conscious. Through increasing conscious awareness patients have a decrease in symptoms, improved relationships, and an increase in life-satisfaction.

Psychotherapy is not a teaching session and it is not advice. It is an honest search for what we do not see. The goal of psychotherapy is to acquire insight and clarity, create new priorities, gain the courage to change, and move towards restoring your life. In our work together, we will focus on how you understand yourself and others, particularly those people to whom you feel close. Our time together may include discussing experiences that sometimes reproduce pain and distress. We will work at your pace to explore your distress in a way that is meaningful and ultimately healing.

I am a psychodynamic trained therapist. Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a form of depth psychology and is similar to psychoanalysis. It is also known as insight-oriented therapy and focuses on unconscious processes as they are manifested in a person’s present behavior. The goals are for a client to become self-aware and understand the influence of their past on their present behaviors. The psychodynamic approach enables the client to examine unresolved conflicts and symptoms that arise from past dysfunctional relationships.

Emotion-based therapies can provide relief, caring healing and recovery. Nutritional and fitness counseling can be essential to alter emotional, mental and personal stress for some.

As your therapist, my role is as a supportive collaborator who will work with you as we explore and unearth the thoughts and feelings which are causing you pain. It is important to feel emotionally safe and cared about, and I have helped many people to be able to express themselves in a trusting, non-judgmental environment, leading to an overall improvement in their functioning, satisfaction, and relationships.....

A high level of trust and comfort for you in psychotherapy is a must. Working with an experienced therapist you can rely upon to listen skillfully will help you to learn to to lift negative moods, become a better problem solver, or improve relationships. Can simply sharing your problems with a therapist be enough to help you improve? I often hear from new patients that they were dissappointed in prior therapy because they were not helped to foucus and to use specific tools that not only made them feel better in therapy, but also in their lives. Therapy should be designed to help you learn at you own, most effective pace for you.

My approach to therapy is tailored to your individual needs, drawing from different therapeutic models, as warranted and appropriate. Beginning therapy, means beginning a new relationship with someone who only knows you in the context of what you bring to the room. I believe the effectiveness of treatment depends on how ready you are for the process of change to begin, how honest you are with yourself, and open and trusting you are able to be within the therapeutic relationship.

Psychotherapy is another word for counseling. Most people who are seaching for psychotherapy on the internet are wanting to work on themselves, changing patterns that are interfering with their lives and relationships. Often psychotherapy refers working a bit deeper than just a few sessions, to get at the root of problems for the most effective and most lasting change. It can be very hard work for both of us, but immensely beneficial. If this sounds interesting to you, please contact me so we can discuss it further.

Is it time for you to learn about yourself? We are taught a lot of things in our world; how to be a student, how to live in a family, how to work, and how to expect to be happy. Only many times we are not taught about our internal selves and we really don't know what will make us happy. Many of us know what makes us unhappy. Why not discover what brings you joy? This is psychotherapy; a journey into yourself, gaining an understanding of YOU? It may become the most fascinating journey of your life, and it may bring you the tools you are missing to create a joyous, peaceful, loving existence. Don't wait to become your best you.
