I always tell people who are looking for a therapist that you should like your therapist, and you should feel that you’re making progress rather than just spinning your wheels. A clinician’s knowledge, approach, and personality are key to achieving that, so I offer free 20 minute phone consultations in order to determine whether we may be a good fit. I have 20 years experience treating adults, teens, and couples in the areas of anxiety, depression, relationships, and general self-growth. Other specialties include: mindfulness, introversion, highly sensitive people, and integrative health.

My typical client is not looking for a one-size fits all approach, they are looking for a creative solution, one which they have not already tried themselves. Initially coming in for therapy my client may feel anxious, depressed, have insomnia, relationship troubles or struggle with putting their phone away. I enjoy working with teenagers who spend too much time on their phones and are showing signs of emotional instability. I enjoy helping families and couples who are drifting apart, yet want to earnestly work on mending their relationship.

I like to engage with the individuals and couples that I see.
I believe people want to express who they are and pursue satisfying work and relationships, but have emotional and cognitive patterns that keep them stuck. These patterns often consolidate into a persona that leaves people feeling not quite themselves, with needs unrealized, feelings ignored, and potential unused. Symptoms of anxiety and depression, addictions, or low self-esteem, are often the only messengers trying to let us know that we are needing change. In a supportive and safe environment, therapy can help to bring these patterns into awareness and liberate needs to connect, create, and expand with fuller emotional support.

Being human is exciting and beautiful... and challenging! My work is grounded in respect and empathy for how individuals, couples , and families pave a path in life. Together we make change possible by bringing your unique, personal knowledge and experience into awareness, and then moving through the stuckness of unkind thoughts or feelings of powerlessness before problems. Together we will work to reconnect you to the whole experience of being human: feeling emotions, attuning to thoughts and beliefs, creating healthy relationships, and recognizing you whole life story is one of strength, resilience and moments of joy.

Hi! My name is Dr. Courtnay Meletta. I have been an integrative psychotherapist for 9 years treating mainly adults and couples . Presently I am seeing clients out of my home office in Los Angeles and virtually using Zoom. The clients that I work with come to me with a variety of issues - anxiety, depression, grief, relationship and job challenges, issues with self-esteem. As a trained trauma therapist, I believe that trauma is the root cause of many of the reasons why life feels hard for so many. Through skilled education on what trauma is, I help my clients become empowered by their healing and take steps toward living more fully.

I am a Brown and USC educated marriage counselor with 13 years of experience providing effective psychotherapy and counseling to individual adults and couples in Los Angeles.
Every couple is different, every couple is complicated, and every couple has trouble talking about one or more key issues. In your first session I will quickly assess what isn't working in your relationship and build a plan to eliminate the problem. I will help facilitate effective communication, make sure the sessions are emotionally safe, and teach practical methods for getting your thoughts and feelings across. My job is not to figure out who is right and who is wrong, my job is to help. ​I tend to work with couples each week for 8-12 weeks.

I treat a variety of disorders, with particular expertise in women’s mental health, professional growth and development, anxiety and depression, ADHD, life transitions, trauma/PTSD, and couples .
Often the desire to start therapy begins when you realize that you are not in control of your feelings, goals, wishes, your own life. Those are the moments that you realize that maybe something needs to change. The change you seek may be specific around a certain event, or more diffuse, based on larger transformations, a desire for deeper insight or better self-awareness. Whatever it is, you do not have to deal with it alone and finding the right therapist is an important first step. As your therapist, I'll meet you with curiosity, warmth, and respect, creating a safe space where you can re-connect with your best self.
