Psychologist

Mark Baker, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Playa Vista

To strengthen my role as the Executive Director of the La Vie Counseling Center I received advanced training in psychodynamic psychotherapy from the Southern California Psychoanalytic Institute because of my interest in getting to the roots of the problems that drive people to therapy. I have studied and practiced an in-depth approach to psychotherapy for over 20 years and have written books that have sold over a million copies and been translated into several languages. My desire is to not only help people feel better, but help them get better and live that way daily. I love going to work each day, because helping people live healthier lives makes me a better person in the process.

Rick Deaton, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

As a psychologist, I have had extensive training treating individuals and couples who present with a variety of presenting problems and diagnoses. I have treated people in an inpatient and outpatient hospital setting who have been diagnosed with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, dementia and have been hospitalized with suicide attempts. I have also been in private practice for almost 20 years and have treated people with severe depression, anxiety, panic attacks, drug and alcohol addiction, and, as well, people without major symptoms who are desiring an improvement in their quality of life, social and dating skills. I also work closely with psychiatrists and have experience and knowledge regarding the prescription of psychotropic medications, their side effects and efficacy.

Psychologist

Carl H. Shubs, Ph.D.

Psychologist

Within driving distance of Playa Vista

A psychologist has the most extensive training in psychology of all the mental health professions. Some people with a Ph.D. are licensed as Marriage and Family Therapists (and I have that license as well) or as Social Workers, not psychologists. As a psychologist, I understand the benefits and limitations of research, and I also bring that to my psychotherapy practice. Psychologists work with the full range of psychological and emotional issues, without limitation, unlike MFTs and LCSWs who have a more limited scope of practice. WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU: I’m well trained to help you with whatever issues bring you to me.

Psychologist

Gary Brainerd, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist & Marriage Therapist

Within driving distance of Playa Vista

Relative few psychologists focus on and specialize in the relationship side of emotional struggles. Depression, anxiety and loneliness have relationships components and those components are important to address. It can also be valuable to see a psychologist when dealing with marriage issues, couples issues and family issues. Dr. Brainerd is a Certified Imago Therapist and has developed both a website and an APP to help in relationships. He also periodically presents workshops for couples.

Psychologist

Alaleh Selkirk, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Playa Vista

As a psychologist the cornerstone of my work with clients involves assessment and evaluation. I begin every client interaction with a thorough assessment of the individual. I formulate my understanding of the client, including their presenting problem, and share this with the client. I invite and encourage active collaboration from the client to devise treatment goals that we can work to achieve in therapy. Therapy to me entails an active and engaged process exploration to gain insights that were otherwise inaccessible to the client.

Psychologist

Camila Williams, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Playa Vista

I went to a graduate program focused on clinical research and quickly realized that my heart was in the therapy room and not the research lab. This is why I pursued advanced clinical training. Psychologists are not required to complete a postdoctoral fellowship in order to become licensed. However, I craved advanced training and completed a fellowship at a VA hospital where I specialized in cognitive behavioral therapy. As a psychologist I feel privileged when a client allows me to join them on their journey to a life worth living. By teaching you tools and skills to help change your thoughts and behaviors, my wish is to empower you to become your own therapist and enact change in your life.

Psychologist

As the former Chief of the Psychology Department at South Nassau Hospital in NY and as a Clinical Psychologist for the hit TV series "Hoarders", Dr. Levine brings a very high level of expertise and knowledge to his clinical work. Combined with a compassionate, gentle and caring approach, he is ready to help you.

Psychologist

Adam Sheck, PsyD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Playa Vista

As a Clinical Psychologist with over 25 years of experience, the focus of my work is PASSION. My work with individuals and couples is to create a deeper relationship first with ourselves and then within the relationship to have a more fulfilled and passionate life. In my experience, passion comes when our inner life matches our outer life, when we live authentically and in integrity with our values. My work with individuals begins there, identifying our values and what excites us and removing the blocks to living that inner truth more fully in our lives.
