Reaching out for help is one of the most humbling experiences we can go through in life. In a world that is constantly pushing narratives on us based on race, gender, sexuality and/or dominant cultural beliefs, it is life-affirming to engage preferred narratives that support and empower our own values. In difficult times it is easy to feel misunderstood or lost, longing to reconnect with our own resources. My work aims for those reconnections. My approach is collaborative, working from a place of respectful curiosity. I am not the expert on your lived experience. You are.

Therapy can be a powerful catalyst to QUICKLY get your back on your feet and feeling like yourself again. Dr. Angel Faith's goal is to provide support and help you master the skills necessary to get you feeling better as quickly as possible!

Always client centered, I work to clarify my client's values and improve feelings of personal effectiveness. Oftentimes we get caught in a negative feedback loop that allows the past dictate our future. Or, we need help learning new tools to become our own best resource when managing life's challenges. Utilizing an integrative solutions-oriented approach to therapy, my goal is to build client self-efficacy and resources, so that they can live their own best life.

It can feel increasingly challenging to maintain a healthy mood these days. Much of the information we navigate is designed to goad our fear of the future or regrets from our past. Practicing Mindfulness is a bridge to the present moment. It can help rinse that fear and regret from our thinking so we can focus on what's actually happening. In this way, it can help us consider the things we actually have some control over and make better choices for our own wellbeing.

I am a licensed psychologist as well as a licensed marriage and family therapist with over thirty years of experience in treating children, teens and adults. I use a practical approach in helping people and also realize that the relationship that we create is the foundation for change. I enjoy the model of the scientist/ practitioner and I incorporate my review of the research coupled with "what works." Additionally, I find a sense of humor often is helpful in tackling life's issues.

What is it about yourself or your life that seems problematic? It may be that you are subject to anxiety or a depression that is too absorbing, it may be that you lack the sort of confidence in your abilities to find the right way to find direction: or it may be that you feel something is missing in your life, be it an intimate relation with another or the right sort of vocation.

I offer therapy grounded in psychoanalysis and attachment theory. In practice, I gently and collaboratively follow clients as they explore past and present dynamics, fantasies, and manifestations of the unconscious. I do this all the while holding in the present the possibility for the emergence of an entirely new and transformative experience. Somatic expressions and symptoms in the body hold a wealth of therapeutic potential. In following the body, we work to uncover and address trauma, but also find unrecognized sources of vitality.

As a queer Black Arab immigrant, I recognize the importance of how social identities can have a great impact on someone's mental health. Even navigating the mental health system can be exhausting and at times disappointing. In my practice, I aim to provide a safe space for people who often struggle to find one due to systemic and social injustices. I assist people in the healing of their trauma and processing difficult experiences as they navigate living in a society that is in itself in need of healing. I am passionate about my work and love being present with my clients through their journey of healing and self-discovery.

What type of Los Angeles mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Los Angeles?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
