Do you find it difficult to make it through the day because of exhaustion, low mood, worry, or because you’re overly alert and hypervigilant? Do you experience anxiety, depression, trauma symptoms, or low self-esteem? I want you to know that you are not alone. You deserve a chance for a change. I believe one of the bravest acts in life is to turn inward and start to discover yourself and understand your story.

What is it that has brought you to seek out therapy? If it is because you are looking for someone to provide a safe validating space to feel heard, to learn to take control of your emotions, to change problematic behaviors, learn effective coping mechanisms, process grief, move on from what no longer serves you, solve a problem, or even figure out what the problem is, I can help. Whatever symptoms you are experiencing, they are there to communicate something to you. I can help identify what that is, and what to do with that information.

I'm also a trained DBT therapist, offering individual DBT skills coaching sessions and parent skills coaching sessions to supplement ongoing, therapeutic work.
What does "balance" and "safety" look like, feel like, and mean to you? I aim to provide a safe, healing space for clients, ensuring I take into account what "safe" and "balance" means to each individual in this current time and how that aligns with current needs, life events, and experiences. I predominantly work with the adolescent & young adult populations, addressing anxiety, relationship with food and body, personality traits/disorders, relationships, and life transitions. I am also passionate about exploring diet culture and the role of wellness culture in our lives.

Do you ever feel like your emotions are running the show? Have you been trying, unsuccessfully, to change problematic behaviors? You are not alone and I can help. The ideal client is struggling to find joy or meaning in their life or is looking to stop using harmful coping mechanisms (avoidance, lying, substance use, self-harm, etc). I take the time to get to know each client and to examine why their behaviors and thoughts are no longer serving them. While looking into the past provides a great deal of information, emphasis is placed on learning to live in the current moment and managing the client's current reality.

I engage multiple science-based models including EMDR, Dialectical Behavior Therapy ( DBT ), CBT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and tailor according to each client's individual needs.
*CASELOAD FULL* Many survivors of trauma feel isolated from their supportive relationships and community, feeling intense and persistent fear, anxiety, agitation, and at times disconnection. Trauma dramatically shifts our experiences of the world and how we relate to others, leaving many feeling alone and stuck simply surviving. Trauma is a psychological injury, and is reparable and treatable. With a multimodal approach, I help clients restore a sense of safety in their environment and within themselves, deeply heal traumatic injuries, and reconnect within relationships and engage in meaningful lives.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy which is a research-based treatment that provides people with hope they didn't get with other therapies.
Trauma, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, self-harm and sexual health problems get in the way of you living the life that you want to wake up to every day. These challenges impact the way you relate to your friends, sexual partners, family members and even our work colleagues. The sense of feeling lonely, like I am the only one that is going through this is very isolating. Not knowing how to break the cycle of previous trauma can make current relationships feel chaotic and nothing that i attempted seems to make the situation better.

As a therapist I use my experience and in-depth training in Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy ( DBT ) and DBT -Prolonged Exposure to help clients gain clarity and a greater sense of control.
Are you feeling unsure about what you want for yourself? Has your stress and anxiety become intolerable in a way that’s preventing you from enjoying the present and moving towards your desired future? Do you know what your goals are, but you can’t figure out how to reach them? Are you having trouble liking yourself and offering yourself care and compassion? Many of us hit points where we confront injuries from our past or roadblocks in the present that feel too difficult to face. Sometimes our thoughts and emotions can feel unmanageable or they cause us to lose confidence in our ability to move forward.

MCS is a therapeutic community where people come to learn, develop, and then practice skills to help them become more effective in their lives. MCS is the brainchild of Lila Galustian, LMFT, and Samantha Wakach, LCSW. Lila and Samantha hatched the idea for MCS in an effort to join their combined decades of clinical expertise, training, education, and practical experience working in treatment centers with patients who suffer from mood disorders, thought disorders, and personality disorders as well as their family members. We often struggled to help patients find appropriate aftercare providers who understand and have training on how to address the complexities of integrating into life after completing treatment. MCS is an ideal outpatient "step down" (ie next stop after one leaves a residential or intensive outpatient center) or a "step up" from once per week outpatient therapy to prevent a need for a higher level of care. MCS is excellent for those who can benefit from more frequent contact with a therapist, have access to family therapy, couples therapy, as well as being part of a therapeutic cohort (via group sessions with peers working on similar issues and challenges).

Dialectical (DBT) Therapists
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is the treatment most closely associated with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Therapists practice DBT in both individual and group sessions. The therapy combines elements of CBT to help with regulating emotion through distress tolerance and mindfulness. The goal of Dialectical Behavior Therapy is to alleviate the intense emotional pain associated with BPD. Its core assumption is that change and acceptance are intertwined. We typically think of our efforts to change things as emerging out of non-acceptance. We either decide to accept things as they are or we seek to change: through DBT it's not a case of change or acceptance, but resolving the conflicts to allow for self-acceptance and constructive change.

If you're looking for DBT therapy in Studio City or for a Studio City DBT therapist these professionals provide dialectical behavior therapy, DBT group therapy, DBT therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy (which is a common misspelling) and dialectical therapy. They provide dialectical counseling, DBT counseling in Studio City and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.
