Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 90210 - Nearby to Westwood Los Angeles.

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.

Thank you for seeking out a psychologist. I am very proud to be a psychologist and to use my education, training and experience to help you heal your emotional pain and set you on a path to a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life. In addition to being a psychologist, I am also a certified group psychotherapist, having done post-doctoral training in group therapy. From my point of view, combining individual and group therapy is the most powerful way to get things done! So, whether you are struggling with depression or anxiety, can't seem to find the right relationship, or find yourself eating or drinking too much, I'd like to help. If you have never done group, you are in for a treat! If group's not your thing, no worries, individual therapy can get the job done too!

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 90210 - Nearby to Westwood Los Angeles.

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.

In 91355 - Nearby to Westwood Los Angeles.

I am a clinical psychologist and received my doctorate from Rutgers University, one of the top Psy.D. programs in the country. I initially focused on psychodynamic therapy but then switched my specialty to cognitive behavioral therapy, as I found it more effective and it better fit my personality (active, involved).

I continue to receive training in cognitive behavioral therapy by the top researchers in the field, as I strongly believe in learning and becoming better in my field. Being a psychologist is so rewarding to me because I see how many people get better and thrive. I truly love what I do and will always do my best to help you.

Psychologist

Carl H. Shubs, Ph.D.

Psychologist

In 90212 - Nearby to Westwood Los Angeles.

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

Camila Williams, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

In 90501 - Nearby to Westwood Los Angeles.

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.

Janet Niederman, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

In 90025 - Nearby to Westwood Los Angeles.

Why choose a psychologist? And why choose me? The breadth and depth of my training comes through in everything I do. Every year, increasingly valuable therapeutic techniques and methods are being developed in this field. Nevertheless, I'm aware that having the core essentials developed over the five years of training it takes to become a psychologist still provides the most complete basis for helping others to grow and change. With the fundamentals that are gained in human development (child development in particular), neuroscience, and client-centered therapeutic principles, the education I've obtained provides a solid foundation upon which we can do our work together. Since completing my degree, I've worked with clients for 35 years. I offer you both my competence and my compassion.

Clinical Psychologist

In 90010 - Nearby to Westwood Los Angeles.

There are many types of counselors who provide psychotherapy. As a clinical psychologist (Psy.D.), I am trained in both the the art of psychotherapy and the science of psychology. I received clinical training in a research lab that was doing clinical trials and as such, I only utilize treatment techniques that have been empirically validated through extensive research. These techniques are effective in providing relatively rapid relief from uncomfortable symptoms and in encouraging lasting behavioral changes which maintain gains and prevent relapse.
