I treat clients from a trauma informed perspective. If it is addiction issues (substance or process) anxiety, depression or other mood disorders, so much of what informs these maladies is developmental or relational trauma. Big T or shock trauma can bring on many underlying issues that have been dormant. I work with clients to carefully assess their history and treatment goals. I use CBT, Psychodynamics, EMDR and other trauma treatment modalities to effectively resolve the inner disturbance.

You feel exhausted, stressed, and angry all the time. You wonder how much more you can take. You are unsure of who or where to turn for help.

Showing up in life can be overwhelming but I believe showing up is half the battle and from there we can create a collaborative therapeutic relationship to help you on your path of healing and self-discovery. I integrate principles of psychodynamic, attachment, mindfulness and humanistic theoretical approaches into my work. I believe that by looking at events and relationships in our past can help us understand patterns in our present that no longer serve us or have made us feel stuck.

A native to Los Angeles I get it; the constant hustle, traffic, the grind of working to pay for life not psychotherapy. I know you’ve got valid reasons for why this isn’t the best time for therapy, but I’m calling your bluff. You’re not too busy, too old, too Black, or too broken. This is “right time” because there will never be a right time to get well. This is your moment. I’m going to say you’ve slowed down just enough to feel; running errands with tears streaming down your face. Hating your spouse, your kids, but hating yourself more because you’re still hurting, still invisible, still in your trauma.

Some people are unable to sleep, have distressing thoughts, or cannot control troublesome habits and behaviors. Others have have struggled with chronic pain due to injuries or illnesses. Many have endured the stigma of having a major mental illness which created difficulties in daily functioning, mood swings, or poor judgement and distorted thinking. And others have functioned well with significant achievements in their careers, family, and relationships but still feel empty inside, and cannot experience pleasure, meaning, or fulfillment from their lives.

Dr. Dubin graduated from The University of Medicine and Dentistry in New Jersey and then completed a residency in Emergency Medicine. Disenchanted with treating patients with medication, he researched Neurofeedback and found improvement in his own brain physiology. DirectNeurofeedback is a low-strength electric current that's effective in reducing the symptoms of anxiety, depression, traumatic brain injury, PTSD, addiction, and ADD/ADHD. It sends a tiny, imperceptible signal to the brain that causes a slight fluctuation in brainwaves. This fluctuation allows the brain to reorganize itself and get out of frozen, stuck patterns, like re-booting a frozen computer.
