I believe that any unwanted emotional states you are experiencing are indications of your soul's desire to heal and grow. Through difficult symptoms your soul is trying to tell you that you may not be living your truth, and that some corrective action is in order. I enjoy working with anyone who is committed to their healing and growth. I do not "fix" my clients nor do I coach them on how to work on their problems. Through active listening and honest dialog you and I together will understand what prevents you from living the life you want and how to unlock your sources of creativity, inner strength and wisdom.
As a therapist, I demonstrate a passionate devotion to fostering growth in a safe, nurturing environment. My treatment approach is tailored to your strengths and uniqueness. I teach and guide you how to actively pay attention to the messages of your body, thoughts, feelings, and your actions. Learn new coping skills that compliment your uniqueness. Visit my websites at www.mindfulpath.com and www.ericaives.com I believe recovery is much more than eliminating self-destructive behaviors; it's about cultivating and living life everyday on a mindful path filled with self-awareness, fulfilling relationships, meaning, and vitality.
As a Jungian Analyst, I create a safe place for my clients to transform problems and discover their wholeness. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is founded upon deep listening and dialog. Whether the concerns are related to relationships, depression, anxiety, procrastination or chronic illness, we begin with understanding your current feelings and desired goal. Throughout these many years of practice, I have been honored to participate in my client's endeavor to achieve an authentic life.
During these uncertain times, self care is a necessity and no longer a luxury. Resilience is essential and therapy is an excellent tool to gain needed support, awareness of coping patterns that best serve us, and assistance in creating a healthy mindset and lifestyle. My role would be to support you during this difficult time and help you to reach greater life goals, know your true self and live your most joyous and authentic life. My style is warm, active, solution- focused and goal- directed. I not only provide support and a listening ear, but also strategies and recommendations that create a clear pathway to desired change.
Hi! My name is Dr. Catherine Barrett and I have a dual focus in clinical and forensic psychology, as well as a background in marriage and family therapy. My practice focuses on teens, young adults, and adults working through various issues including; narcissistic abuse and CPTSD, addictive and compulsive behaviors, anxiety, and chronic mental illness. I have 12 years of experience working with families and individuals as well as helping teens prepare for the adult world. I am LGBTQ+ affirmative and social justice oriented. My goal is to help people find healthier and happier ways to lead their lives.
Need to feel safe? Prefer a therapist who says it like it is (with a side of class, tact, and the ability to help you get to your stuff with out feeling judged or shamed)? I focus on assisting teens, couples, and families with problems in day to day living to more complex issues that have reached crisis level. My strengths are in the areas of divorce, anxiety (triggers and control), bullying, ADD &ADHD lifestyles, and teen/parent relationship issues. I welcome parenting and couple dilemmas. Furthermore, I am experienced in dealing with gender issues, depression, grief, and general tough times.
For me, the connection between client and therapist, as well as creating emotionally safety, are two critical ingredients in a successful therapy experience. We will collaborate to identify the specific areas about which you want assistance; such as, relationship challenges, every -day stressors, trauma and grief therapy, and mood regulation skills — to reduce anxiety and depression. Oftentimes we struggle with an inaccurate narrative, filled with shame and self-critical thoughts. Despite feeling stuck in negative patterns, we can rewrite that script and develop greater resilience.
My name is Fay Alon and I'm a licensed clinical psychologist. I have been practicing for over 20 years. I'm able to connect, understand and empathize with mostly anyone. I'm caring, compassionate, direct and non-judgmental. I completed my pre-doctoral internship at the UCLA Student Psychological Services. My post-doctoral fellowship was at Harbor UCLA-Medical Center. I worked for eight years as a psychologist at UCLA. I have been in private practice in Santa Monica, Woodland Hills and now in Calabasas. Please call or email me for an individual, couples or family therapy consultation today.
I work with individuals dealing with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, identity issues, parenting and more. In psychotherapy, support, guidance and self-reflection can help to alleviate many symptoms that have been problematic for years. Although it can be difficult beginning the process of therapy, the results can be profound and can lead to meaningful discovery and transformation.
Our experience enables us to offer effective outpatient, individualized, psychological care. We treat a number of mental health disorders, including anxiety and depression, and provide a neutral ground to individuals, families, and couples.
Choosing the right therapist can be a difficult, yet important decision. I believe in an atmosphere by which individuals, couples and/or families can feel free to openly express themselves in a safe, therapeutic environment. Whether it is extreme anxiety or depression, family and relationship issues, addictions, grief, and a plethora of other conflicts, my clients are able to work on and through the many bumps in their lives in a supportive and caring place.
My clients come to me feeling hopeless in their relationships. They crave connection and intimacy yet have extreme difficulty opening up and being vulnerable. They constantly fear losing control in their relationships and neglect their own needs as a result. They may employ people pleasing and perfectionist tendencies to avoid conflict. Or their heightened emotions place them in constant conflict. What we discover through our work together is that these patterns can often be traced back to growing up in a dysfunctional or alcoholic home. You are someone who wants to finally be able to form healthier and authentic relationships.
How would your life look if you were living life to the fullest, happier & having rich, meaningful relationships? Healing & tending to the unhealthy parts of ourselves takes us there.

If you're a high-achieving individual with frequent or intense anxiety, you may feel discouraged and frustrated by your symptoms. Constant worry, obsessions, disrupted sleep and sudden anxiety attacks can be debilitating, even for the most competent person. I work with successful professionals, including physicians, attorneys, executives, creatives and entertainers, and their family members; I know it can be hard to seek help when you are used to solving your own problems. However, anxiety symptoms are very treatable when you work with a professional who offers the most effective approach.
