If you are moving through a difficult transition or wanting to tend to the deeper psychological aspects of past traumatic situations or persistent addictions, my work can help you. My training is based in a psychoanalytic perspective coupled with mindfulness-based cognitive therapy and a genuine appreciation for sexual, cultural, and spiritual diversity. A psychoanalytic view suggests that current problems may be sourced in unconscious patterns, often rooted in the past, that would benefit from attention and understanding. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy helps reduce addictive behaviors and anxiety through the practice of gentle self observation and present moment awareness.

If you are searching for a therapist right now it may be because the world around is changing so much and you're losing your sense of control, or maybe you can't stop worrying about your finances or health and perhaps you're really worried about returning back to the office. I've been a licensed therapist since 2007 and worked in the field since that time and have supported many people during that time. I provide online counseling but you need to be physically in California for us to work together.

The reasons why people choose to go to therapy are numerous. From recent life stressors to long-term struggles with addiction, anxiety or depression, therapy can be a way to increase adaptability, happiness, coping, and overall quality of life. For some, therapy is about treating an identified problem, while others focus on personal growth and general well-being. Either way, therapy can be an important catalyst for positive change.

It takes a lot of strength to honestly assess your current situation, to confront certain truths, and to commit to making needed changes in your life. If you are ready to start making those changes, you may be wondering what to expect in the therapeutic process. In a supportive alliance with you, and after you identify your goals, we will map out a strategy to address your concerns, work to increase your self-awareness, and focus on developing greater personal insight and behavioral change. The outcome depends largely on commitment while silencing the harsh internal critic that many people have.

I have maintained a private practice in Beverly Hills or West Hollywood for 30 years, and I have been an Associate Clinical Professor in the UCLA Psychology Department. I have found it helpful to be eclectic in my theoretical orientation, depending upon the personality of the client, the issues being discussed, and the client's own history of what has and has not been helpful. I integrate cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and humanistic elements in my approach to each client, always attempting to provide a safe and respectful environment in which clients can grow.

Native to Los Angeles, Amanda was captivated from a young age by the stark discrepancies in mental health services available to marginalized communities compared to the surrounding populations living only just next door. Prolonged exposure further lead her awareness of a growing divide for which there seemed no clear solution. Frustrated by a lack of meaningful social impact, Amanda was driven to commit her life to seeking clinical solutions to broad societal issues.

My work as a therapist centers on providing empathy, understanding, and a safe place where you can openly express your thoughts and feelings. Together, we will process how the experiences and relationships in your life have affected your mood, your happiness, the way you communicate with others, and more importantly, the way you view yourself.

Healing from trauma, reclaiming power, growing from struggle and learning to work WITH emotions rather than AGAINST them are the goals I strive to support my clients in achieving. I want to help my clients move beyond simply not feeling so depressed, anxious, angry or manic. I want to help them transcend their pain, feel like they are fulfilling their purpose in life, are able to truly love themselves and are cultivating relationships that feed their soul. Narrative Therapy teaches my clients to transform the meaning of what they have been through and techniques from Existential Therapy help clients create or discover their purpose.

If you’re anything like me or my clients, you’re very aware that your stressful thoughts and emotions keep coming even though it seems like you’ve done everything to stop them. Maybe you’re overwhelmed and can’t relax, believing that you have to do everything by yourself (because what’s the point in asking for help), but then you’re hard on yourself for having needs! You likely know you want better relationships, to be more present, and not fly off the handle so easily, and you very much know that you want more from your life than how it is now. What you likely don’t know is how to make this vision of a life worth living a reality.

Early on, Adam was intrigued by how we connect with ourselves and the world around us. His interests led him to explore a diverse range of cultures and beliefs. He received his masters degree in psychology, and further delved into meditation, sound healing, and other consciousness ideologies. Today, he uses a variety of those tools to help those around him. In an atmosphere free of judgement, Adam helps guide each individual through their journey to understand and love themselves more fully.

First and foremost- I want you to know that your issues make sense. What I mean is that, usually our “problems” started off as necessary solutions that protected us at one point in time. Wild, right? If you’re now finding that these solutions don’t fit the life that you’re envisioning for yourself, good therapy can help! I’m Arielle, and for the past ten years I’ve been passionately supporting young adults unravel sources of pain, heal from their past, and transform patterned thoughts and behaviors. Together, we’ll set the foundation for a future that’s in line with your authentic self.
