Kristen Gardenhire, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I think that psychotherapy is a great way to unearth the difficult patterns from our past that bog us down. I really believe that psychotherapy will help clients to discover who they are truly meant to be through the processes of discussing their family of origin and the dynamics that occurred. I've seen clients struggling with trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, and much more greatly benefit from psychotherapy.

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.

Stephanie Mintz, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Northridge

My approach to therapy is to first have you set goals. Then I help you reach your goals through active exercises and gaining an understanding of why you are where you are and how to change it. Once you reach your goals you can go out and enjoy your joy filled life and when life throws you a curve ball you are always welcome to come back for a "tune up".

Psychotherapist

Carl H. Shubs, Ph.D.

Psychologist

Within driving distance of Northridge

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

Lee Langley, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Northridge

My approach to psychotherapy combines "family of origin" work (examining how current life issues are rooted in childhood experiences) with the application of biblical principles for living. Depending on the problem a client is facing, I also use cognitive behavioral techniques which help to develop an understanding of the thoughts and feelings that influence behaviors.

Psychotherapist

Bruce Levine, Ph.D., ABPP

Board Certified Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Northridge

There are many forms of psychotherapy and many professions that offer it. Dr. Levine employs "evidence-based treatments" (treatments that are shown to be effective in clinical research studies). 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. He will answer the phone (323-250-2256) personally - no receptionist or secretary to deal with! Or, email him at BHpsychologist@gmail.

Psychotherapist

Lori Freson, M.A., MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Northridge

Sometimes you can't really pinpoint what is wrong, but you know you are not satisfied with your life. Maybe you just need someone to talk to, who can listen with compassion and not judgement. Perhaps you are ready to explore your issues and move past them to live the life you always dreamed of. Let me help empower you to find your strengths and love of life.

Psychotherapist

Joy Davidson, Ph.D, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Northridge

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.

There's an old saying: "If you can't talk about it, you can't work it out." I agree. This is where psychotherapy can help. If you choose to work with me, we will work together to help you learn how to express yourself in ways that help you to identify your needs and how to get your needs met. This isn't always so easy, in particular if we are feeling guilt, anxiety, or shame. Many people simply aren't used to talking about some of the challenges of their lives. Perhaps this speaks to you. I understand. That was me at one time. What I can tell you is this: for over 25 years my clients typically report feeling better because they feel heard, understood, and truly cared for.

Psychotherapist

Kristen Caron, MA, MFT

Licensed Psychotherapist, Eating Disorder Specialist

Within driving distance of Northridge

My approach to psychotherapy involves a comprehensive evaluation to examine the specific needs of the client. Several modalities are utilized for treatment. Cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy. Therapy generally involves not only examining how our past experiences have informed our sense of self and well being, but understanding how to move forward effectively by developing healthy coping strategies. I treat individuals, couples, families in an outpatient setting. I treat both adolescents and adults.

Psychotherapist

Hillary Goldsher, Psy.D, MBA

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Northridge

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

Ellen Klavan, MA, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Northridge

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.
