YOUR MIND A HUG
WITH MY LA THERAPY
Start Healing Today
In order to experience our deepest recesses of joy and peace, we must first have the courage to face our fears. That’s why our therapists use a wide range of research-proven therapy techniques to help transform anxiety, depression, and loneliness into joy, freedom, and connectedness.
So whatever your situation, our goal is to help you find clarity, purpose, and strength. Through the therapy process, we will help you cultivate an unshakeable resiliency that you carry into every challenge you face.
The purpose of our therapy practice is to help you become free from the grip of anxiety, depression, addiction, and hurtful relationships. As human beings, we all struggle. Healing is when these struggles no longer control you. To read testimonials of those who have worked with us, click here.
While each member of our Therapist Team has a great deal of training and experience, what makes us different is who we are. Authenticity, openness, and warmth are a central part of who we are and how we practice. We strive to be real and we don’t put on pretenses or hide behind the veil of professionalism. Because we have overcome struggles in our own lives, we feel uniquely qualified to help you with yours — not looking down from an ivory tower, but as people who have been in the trenches too. Remember this. Whatever you are feeling, no matter how crazy or scary or different, you are not alone.
In this group, we explore the underlying causes of anxiety and depression and begin to face our issues head on and practice another way of being. We will practice techniques to regulate anxiety as well as explore what we may be avoiding and channeling into anxiety and depression, which may cause problems in many areas of life.
Whether you are simply going through a rough time or are in the throes of severe depression, therapy can help to identify and change underlying patterns of thought and behavior that are contributing to these feelings and can provide strategies to decrease the pain and restore a sense of joy, peace, and competence.
All relationships go through rough patches from time to time. But sometimes we lose sight of our love for one another because poor communication can create ever-deepening resentments and anger. In turn, the trust may be lost and the closeness that used to define a relationship can disappear. When that happens, it’s time to reach out to a counselor who can help.
Codependency and love addiction occur when we begin to use our relationships to avoid dealing with painful aspects of ourselves and our lives. Life can be difficult and it’s challenging to make our own way in the world. As a result, we often cling to relationships that are destructive in order to not have to do the hard work of facing our fears and growing.
Research has proven, time and again, that CBT is a lasting and effective treatment. CBT targets anxiety, depression, and self-esteem problems. Our beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world around us can dictate the way we feel, for better and worse.
In psychodynamic therapy, we examine anxiety and defenses as they arise within the session in real time. We explore the past through the lens of the present moment. I am trained to identify signs of unconscious anxiety and to help you address and overcome internal conflicts that may be responsible for many of the problems in your life: from depression and anxiety to work and relationship problems.
Mindfulness and Buddhist principles have been passed down in Eastern traditions for centuries. Now contemporary research findings in Neuroscience and Psychology are proving empirically that these healing practices are effective in treating psychological problems. Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is a form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy that integrates mindfulness as a central part of its practice. Mindfulness, simply put, is non-judgmental awareness.
Many people express a sense of knowing what they want to do but not feeling capable of carrying it out. This is often a result of unconscious anxiety and defenses, which create a barrier between what we know intellectually and what we feel experiential.
