Invited is a present, focused process activating stillness necessary for personal, sentient, somatic , conscious awareness to come into focus.
Rooted in depth psychology, mind body and complementary practice, incorporating trauma based, transpersonal, solution focused and other therapeutic techniques and strategies, I work with adults, teens and couples struggling with personal, emotional, relational, life transitions, anxiety, stress, disillusionment, trauma histories, parental challenges, as well, young adults navigating individuation, differentiation, contending with middle, high school, university and post graduate adjustments. My approach is integrative, drawing on evidence based psychological methodologies and treatment modalities which acknowledge the whole person.

I specialize in trauma, both developmental and shock. If you have experienced trauma then you know first hand how it can impact you in life, work, and relationships. There is possibility for real change. Science has discovered we can create new pathways in the brain, and the body is able to discharge trauma. I am a certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and also am trained in Brainspotting. Both modalities help heal trauma on a very deep organic level. Creating that change together is the journey that I am here to help support in my clients.

I am certified in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and I work from an integrative framework, combining mindfulness, somatic work, and strengths based approaches.
Increasing awareness of the self and building insight to our experiences allows for improvements in relationships and greater understanding of the mind, mood, and behavior. Life experiences change us. Often our relationships embedded within these experiences create wounds within our self that remain stuck within the body. We may feel unsafe and our world becomes confusing and challenging to navigate.

Hello, welcome to my personal profile. I specialize in the treatment of overcontrolled and undercontrolled emotional styles. I offer a blend of Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Somatic Experiencing with spirituality interventions to help you get comfortable in your own skin. I believe that we are human animals that have lost the sense of our body's wisdom for various reasons. This work can support you in coming home to yourself, maybe for the first time. Building resilience in the body can remove pathology from experience, set the conditions for increased self-compassion and cultivate the ability to make wise choices.

My specialties are body-oriented ( somatic ) psychotherapy, psychedelic (ketamine) assisted psychotherapy and EMDR.
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.

If you suffer from developmental (trauma from childhood abuse) or acute trauma (for example, rape, assault, divorce, accident), I am trained in several modalities that can help. These include: Neurofeedback, which is exercise for the brain, improves self-regulation and calms the nervous system, building resiliency. EMDR is a process that desensitizes and reprocesses trauma. Somatic Experiencing releases pent up energy in the body that keeps us from completing and letting go of traumatic experiences. I use these methods, along with traditional psychodynamic talk therapy, in a kind and healing environment, to help you recover. .

Together we explore shadow material, dreams, patterns and include somatic therapies, art therapy and experiential methodologies.
If you are suffering from repeated patterns that are negatively impacting your life and desire freedom and space to heal and transform where you are navigating as a fully informed individual in a lifelong process of growth and development, I can help. I work with individuals, couples, groups and families who are overwhelmed by anxiety, suffering from depression, in a life transition, having an existential crisis, looking for deeper meaning and a stronger sense of Self. I believe being seen and understood within a relationship to a nonjudgmental, compassionate other is a key factor in your healing.

As human beings, we all face difficult seasons of life, as do our relationships. My practice is currently focused on providing a unique, somatic & attachment-based approach to couples & relationship therapy via telehealth video sessions. The way that we are in a relationship is a reflection of how we are in relationship to ourselves, and my approach takes this into account to provide a safe, gentle, and direct space for you and your partner to explore how you show up in the relationship.

If you could use confirmation of your worth and respect for your innate needs, somatic therapy may be for you.
Life can be challenging. Sometimes it can even be hard to know what it's like to feel safe or content. Learning how to feel safe enough to truly enjoy life, people, relationships, one's own body, and one's own internal world is what therapy is about. It's from that place of inner safety that we can feel healthy, joyful and bring forth the best parts of ourselves. Are you interested in a cutting edge healing process? To succeed in accessing healing capacities, and to resolve trauma I practice a few different forms of somatic therapy: NeuroAffective Touch, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, Somatic Experiencing, and EMDR.

I am a psychotherapist currently in private practice in Santa Monica. I have been working with patients since 2010 and am currently a Ph.D. candidate at Pacifica Graduate Institute where I also earned an M.A. in Counseling Psychology. My therapeutic style integrates my academic education with training and experience in various modalities. I draw from a diverse clinical background to meet the particular needs and goals of each individual. While I am most influenced by Jungian and Buddhist psychology, intersubjective and attachment theory as well as somatic approaches highly inform my work.

Neurofeedback works best supported by Somatic Therapy. Parvin's multifaceted somatic approach with hand-on sacrocranial work and background in clinical psychology is a perfect preparation and compliment to Neurofeedback. The focus of her work is on facilitating a more balanced, wholesome state in the brain. With a new level of functioning, clients have a chance to develop new habits and accomplish new goals. Typical training sessions last 90 minutes. Sometimes shorter 50 minute sessions with only neurofeedback are warranted.

As a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, I bring a deeper awareness and insight into the functioning of our nervous systems.
I have found that disruptions in our lives carry on in our nervous systems, sometimes arising at inopportune times. Often, it is in these times we seek support; whether dealing with the loss of a loved one, a sudden traumatic event, the onset of anxiety or a reliance on alcohol or medications. I will create an environment that encourages reflection, honesty, and compassion to help you find growth, self-reliance and an eventual return to health. I will work with you to get through the most challenging times with courage and boundless growth.

I have specialty training in Somatic Psychotherapy to treat Depression, Anxiety, and PTSD.
I am here to help you get unstuck and reclaim your natural state of joy, well-being, purpose, and vitality. "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure (Marianne Williamson)." In our fast-paced world, it's easy to lose touch with ourselves and our sense of well-being. This has led to a rise in depression/anxiety, substance abuse, marital/relationship issues, and other difficulties. I am skilled at alleviating these symptoms and have been successful in working with individuals, couples, children/adolescents, and families of all ages backgrounds.

I go beyond “talk therapy” and weave evidence-based therapies of IFS, EMDR, Somatic Therapy, and Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy to process and release negative thoughts, memories, and emotions that hold you back.
You want to live your best life and feel terrified by the thought of moving forward. On the outside, you may look like you have it together. On the inside, you’re caught in a spin cycle, trapped in the same destructive habits and repeating the same mistakes. Shame controls your thoughts and behaviors, preventing you from feeling any joy. You’ve gone to therapy and talked about your feelings. Yet your past memories and experiences still leave you feeling edgy, anxious, and disconnected. You feel stuck and don’t know why. You want relief and are looking for something different.
