My LA Therapy - Katie (slider)

Katie Pasternack, LCSW

I specialize in working with individuals who are struggling with feelings of depression, anxiety, past trauma, relationships issues, grief and loss, work/school challenges, low self esteem, family conflict/divorce/parenting, emerging adulthood, and life transitions. While I utilize a variety of modalities that have been shown to be effective in managing mental health symptoms, I have a holistic therapeutic approach, meaning we will consider many different aspects of your life in the quest for health and wellness. This includes your feelings and emotional responses to challenges, personal relationships and community, creative or spiritual outlets, and daily habits and rituals.

My LA Therapy - Samantha (slider)

Samantha Chaikin, LMFT

Since 2016, my clinical work has focused on a variety of presenting concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use, PTSD, childhood abuse, grief/loss and personality disorders. I have worked with a variety of chronic pain and illness conditions including PCOS, mast cell disorders, MS, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, fibromyalgia, arthritis, immune deficiencies and many more. I believe that psychotherapy can be a way to gain a better understanding of oneself and provide an individual with insight into their own life. Having awareness surrounding one’s thoughts and feelings can lead to a more fulfilling and mindful existence. I believe that the therapeutic relationship formed with my clients can be in and of itself a healing experience and really a branching off point towards the road of self-discovery. The therapy room is truly a safe space to explore who you are and who you want to become.
