Tracey Cleantis, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

Psychotherapist

Kristen Caron, MA, MFT

Licensed Psychotherapist, Eating Disorder Specialist

Within driving distance of Van Nuys

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

Lauren Stevenson, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a specialized form of therapy that focuses on a person's thoughts and beliefs, and how they influence a person's emotions and actions. As a client, you will learn how to identify distorted or unhelpful thinking patterns, recognize and change inaccurate beliefs, relate to others in more positive ways, and change behaviors accordingly. CBT's ability to help change a person's thinking to be more adaptive, effective, and healthy, while helping them change unhealthy behavior patterns, will lead to the alleviation of symptoms and an improved quality of life.

Psychotherapist

Sandra Dupont, MA, MS, MFT

Counseling, Coaching & Mentoring for Millennials

Within driving distance of Van Nuys

If your young adult is feeling isolated and alone, I can help them explore the circumstances that have led them to this place in their life. Sometimes healing is derived from simply gaining understanding of how their life experiences have impacted them and shaped who they are. I can help your young adult examine how their early childhood experiences have influenced the lens through which they currently view the world. I can also help them evaluate any rules they made up about the meaning of life. Together, we can design a new and more fulfilling story for their future.

Psychotherapist

Lee Langley, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Van Nuys

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

Sandra Santana, Psy.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Van Nuys

I specialize in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which is the most effective treatment for depression and anxiety. There are different subsets of CBT, therefore, depending on the diagnosis and symptoms, I will tailor the treatment to you. For example, many of the anxieties require "exposure" therapy, which will help you confront and cope with your fears in a controlled, safe and effective manner. It's all about coping skills, which is my job to provide to you. Many therapies do not provide this type of treatment, which is why many people still experience panic, phobias or OCD even when they've seen a therapist. It's important to find a therapist who specializes in CBT with exposure.

Psychotherapist

April De Higes, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Van Nuys

Clients come to see me because they have the same arguments over and over. Couples tell me they don't understand each other; and they don't listen to each other. After working with me, couples learn new ways to talk to each other. They feel more loved, more care about, and more understood. Couples and families report that they get along better, things are calmer at home, and there is less fighting. Clients tell me..."We catch ourselves going back to old patterns. Then, we get our homework sheet out and do it differently. Thank you for helping us communicate better."

Psychotherapy offers an individually tailored approach to clients' lives, families, relationships. Client(s) and therapist can decide together what approaches may be most helpful. Therapy can also involve referrals to other professionals and/or activities that can support our work. Most importantly, psychotherapy offers a safe haven within which to explore what difficulties clients experience and within which to have opportunities to grow in mindfulness, self-care, relationship skills, boundary-setting, emotional healing etc.

Are problems from your past creating issues for you today? Do you need help learning more constructive ways to deal with life's challenges? Do you feel stuck in the same unhealthy patterns, and can't find your way out of them? If this sounds like you, I'd like to help. I am committed to creating a place where you feel safe to heal, and uncover emotional wounds and memories, so that you don't continue with self-defeating, maladaptive behaviors.

Psychotherapist

Jim Tauber and Laura Newman, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapists

Within driving distance of Van Nuys

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

Tom Andre, MA

MFTI

Within driving distance of Van Nuys

Meetings typically feel like engaging conversations where together we take on a problem (or a set of problems) that has been affecting your life in a way that is not what you want. Over the course of these conversations, you might expect to gain a better sense of where you stand and how you want to proceed, based on your skills, your resourcefulness, and what is truly important to you.
