Psychotherapist

Alaleh Selkirk, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Van Nuys

People go to therapy to address a problem that is distressing them and causing interference in a significant aspect of their life (work, social life, interpersonal relationships, sleep, etc.) After the immediate problem is resolved or significantly reduced, most of my clients continue to stay in therapy because they have started noticing a change in themselves that they like! To me, therapy isn't just about reducing symptoms. It is about much more. It's about experiencing meaning in life. It's about connecting with the best version of ourselves and knowing that person is there within us. That's true self-confidence. My clients tend to tell me they feel more "whole". That's therapy to me.

Psychotherapist

Betsy Walli, MS, PhD

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist 85860

Within driving distance of Van Nuys

Sometimes the harder try to connect, the more distant and lonely you end up feeling. Yet you keep using the same ineffective strategies, because what else can you do? Or maybe you give up. You are probably spending enough time and effort already trying to make it work — you’re just doing it in the wrong way. I can help you channel your efforts more successfully using emotionally focused therapy (EFT).

Psychotherapist

Scott Harris, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Van Nuys

Therapy is about change, it is about conflict, it is about emotion, and it is about our relationships. People who seek therapy may feel stuck in their relationships, their jobs, or their lives in general.They may have great difficulty coming with their families, friends and partners. Often, when individuals are struggling, their perspective of people, relationships and situations in their life can be affected. Sometimes previous or ongoing trauma seriously impacts how individuals think, cope and feel about themselves. The psychotherapy I provide, works in looking at, understanding and changing those perceptions and providing skills necessary for a new/different way of relating/communicating.

Psychotherapist

Patricia McMahon, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Van Nuys

My approach to psychotherapy is strength-based. I like to emphasize your strengths and help lighten your journey as you face challenges. I also work from a narrative orientation, exploring ways to re-author your life story. I can help you examine distorted thinking/thoughts which allows you to have more choice in the way you perceive yourself, others, and the world.

Psychotherapist

Michelle Harwell, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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

Rebecca Bokoch, PsyD

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Psychotherapy is another word for talk therapy. As a marriage and family therapist registered intern I do engage in talk therapy with my clients. The ultimate goal of my approach to psychotherapy is to help clients to experience positive change. I use reflective listening skills, strategic questioning, and creating a safe and nurturing environment to effectively practice psychotherapy.

Psychotherapist

Carl H. Shubs, Ph.D.

Psychologist

Within driving distance of Van Nuys

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.

Psychotherapy is a process in which a therapist can help support and guide you through difficult challenges while providing you with strategies for reducing unwanted symptoms of distress.

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

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.
