My approach to psychotherapy is very customized. Every individual comes with their own beliefs, values, and family of origin. Because of this, one size does not fit all. I am very careful to take the time to learn my clients and their needs. I help my clients walk toward the directions they desire. I come to you with over 35 years of experience in helping others to heal. Whether it is addiction, abuse, grief, relationship struggles, or stress, I can help. I look forward to assisting you with your life challenges.

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.

Therapy can help you quiet emotional turbulence and negative thinking, uncover barriers to positivity, heal old emotional wounds, restore balance, and experience more of your full potential.

Nadia Siswanto, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

I love helping people transform their lives and get the Aha moments that lead to real change. Therapy to me is about making internal changes to the way that we think, as well as, understanding why we feel what we feel. I believe it is the little choices we make that make huge impacts in our daily living. Great therapy transforms your relationships, your confidence at school or work, and your perspective on life.

Psychotherapist

Jamey Hecht, MA, PhD, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Van Nuys

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.

Psychotherapy can change lives. Sometimes, we feel depressed, anxious, confused, lonely,and/or a host of other feelings. Life seems overwhelming. It is important during these times to get support and help to deal with these emotions. I believe that with the guidance of a good psychotherapist and with your motivation and desire, you can turn your life around to become a happier and more fulfilled person. In my many years of experience, I have seen people succeed with this process. I would love to help you do this too.

Dr. Pamela Sobo, Psy. D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Van Nuys

Dr. Sobo integrates traditional psychodynamic psychotherapy with progressive psychotherapeutic interventions such as Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, and Mindfulness training. These techniques help to treat the effects of patients presenting problems as well as traumas. Patients learn to facilitate emotional and cognitive processing, as well as cultivate self-awareness of inner body sensations. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy has been reported to reduce symptoms of PTSD, nightmares, panic attacks, and hyperarousal, while providing tools to help increase feelings of safety and a sense of control over one’s self.

Psychotherapist

Jo Ellen Fletcher, M.A.,LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Van Nuys

I believe in showing my clients empathy, compassion, and unconditional positive regard. There is no script to follow. It is simply listening, holding space, withholding judgement, emotionally connecting, and communicating the incredibly healing message of, "You are not alone." My approach to helping is to show up authentically, without judgment and provide unconditional acceptance and guidance in the therapy room. My philosophy regarding psychotherapy is that healing happens in a warm and safe therapeutic relationship. What I find most important is creating a space between the therapist and client that is sacred, unique, very honest, and above all, compassionate. I use down to earth examples and exercises as a way to approach the healing process...(view profile to read more)

How long does therapy take? This is a question I am often asked and yet is so difficult to answer. So much depends on what you expect and want from their therapist. Some people want a to address a specific problem they are facing and others want and ongoing therapeutic relationship. Personally, I much prefer working with patients who are looking towards the longer term commitment. I love getting to know my patients and becoming the holder of their stories as I try to facilitate growth and change.

Psychotherapy can be a powerful tool in one's life. Most everyone can benefit from therapy regardless of what the problem or issue may be. There is always this misconception that you must have something wrong with you if you go therapy, but that is a myth. Psychotherapy can be very helpful and powerful within one self by expressing your internal feelings.
