Psychotherapist

Ellen Klavan, MA, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

420 1/2 North Larchmont, Los Angeles, California

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

Lauren Muhlheim, Psy.D., CEDS

Clinical Psychologist

4929 Wilshire Boulevard, Suite 245, Los Angeles, California

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.

What is keeping you from living the life you want? Individual therapy is a powerful tool to identify goals and remove the obstacles that prevent you from experiencing more fulfilling relationships with yourself, your work, and other people. Individuals come to therapy at different moments in life. If you are experiencing anxiety or depression, struggling with self-esteem or relationship issues, abusing substances, feeling professionally frustrated, or experiencing grief and loss, the process of individual therapy is an effective way to create the change you want to see in your life.

Lindsey Rosenthal, M.A., L.M.F.T.

Psychotherapist, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Mid Wilshire, near LACMA, Los Angeles, California

Psychotherapy is a fun, engaging, and transformative process! As your therapist I will work closely with you to identify what is working in your life, as well as what is missing and what isn't working. We will identify your real, hidden and emergent dreams, and goals. I will hold you accountable to making the changes you desire real, and this will further assist you in becoming more of the person that you want to be. I have assisted countless individuals and couples in the process of self discovery, living your truth, and living an identity of your choice, not one ascribed 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.

Psychotherapist

Jim Tauber and Laura Newman, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapists

2717 S. Robertson Blvd., Los Angeles, California

As co-therapists we bring greater awareness of what is going on in the room. We focus on the here and now. We bring experience in Gestalt, humanistic, mindfulness and narrative therapy into the room. We strive to create a safe and collaborative environment. We work together to help couples understand their patterns of behavior, acting out, shutting down and arguing. We focus on how a couple fights and not what they fight about. When we help you to understand and accept who you are now, change becomes a reality.

Psychotherapist

Joy Davidson, Ph.D, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

N. Palm Drive, Beverly Hills, California

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.

Psychotherapist

Carl H. Shubs, Ph.D.

Psychologist

321 S. Beverly Drive, Suite "L", Beverly Hills, California

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.
