Robin Landau PhD View Specialties



Hello and welcome to my profile! I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist based in Santa Clarita, California with over 15 years of experience, providing therapeutic services to Adults and Teens (14 and over).  In my private practice, I will provide a safe space for you to work through the underlying issues that may be causing your emotional pain and support you in the process of creating a life that is more in tune with your values, beliefs and passion. My approach is warm, nurturing and direct, helping you reconnect with your authentic self, rediscover your intuition and your own voice. 
 
My areas of focus:
  • eating disorders
  • body image difficulties
  • women's issues
  • infertility
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • life transitions
  • sexual assault/sexual abuse
  • self-esteem, confidence, empowerment   

Eating Disorders Treatment:
  • Eating disorders are complex, affecting the mind, body and spirit.  Though they can be life-threatening, with the right treatment, people can fully recover.  My role is to hold the belief that each of my clients has the chance at a full and continued recovery from their eating disorder.
  • My approach is holistic as I consider both the physical and emotional health of my clients.  I help clients to work through conflicts, fears, triggers and issues underlying their eating disorders, and assist them in restoring their nutritional well-being and healthy eating patterns.  I really enjoy assisting my clients as they learn to reconnect with their authentic self and learn to trust their ability to cope with life issues without using food.
  • I approach treatment from a Health at Every Size perspective.  Their principles of weight inclusivity, health enhancement, respectful care, eating for well-being, and life-enhancing movement are at the core of our work together. My practice does not promote dieting and I work to fight against weight stigma.


     

Types of Psychotherapy:
  • Individual Psychotherapy - Adults and Adolescents (14 and over)
  • Group Psychotherapy -  I run Process Groups which consist of both women and men.  Clients are able to see how they impact others and learn to enhance their communication skills in the context of a safe supportive group. These groups are a great adjunct to individual therapy as they offer my clients another way to understand themselves and connect with others in a meaningful way.
  • Family Psychotherapy with Families of clients with Eating Disorders

 
Benefits of Psychotherapy with Me:
  • decreased symptoms of anxiety and depression
  • more confidence and greater self esteem

  • increased effective communication with family and friends
  • support through life transitions and challenges
