Do you find yourself feeling fine one moment and suddenly you're overwhelmed by distressing thoughts or confusing emotions? Do you feel like your body has been hijacked by sensations that you can't identify or pinpoint? Do you find yourself disconnected from your life and those things you once enjoyed doing? Have you ever experienced or seen something in the past that now invades your life on a daily basis? Have you ever just wanted to hide away from everything? I know that feeling and I'm telling you right now, you're not alone.

Hi there! I'm Deborah Schleicher, a licensed clinical psychologist in Los Angeles. Thanks for taking this moment for yourself, or someone you care about, to learn how therapy can become a useful tool in life if it isn't already. Therapy is a way to invest in personal growth and change.

As a practitioner of Emotional Transformation Therapy (ETT), I specialize in helping people heal from trauma, depression, and anxiety. I assist clients in a process of deep self-discovery using ETT, psychotherapy, and movement. ETT can help clients to heal more effectively from long-standing and painful patterns than traditional talk therapies alone. I treat a wide variety of conditions that prevent people from living an optimum life. My ideal client is committed to change, may have been in prior therapy that has not yet shifted fundamental maladaptive patterns, and open to new ways of thinking and feeling about themselves.

Individuals who are looking to conquer life transitions and decrease anxiety, I’m right there with you. This life is hard, and doing it alone is even more challenging. Aside from your relationship with yourself, your relationship with your intimate partner is one of the most important. Why? Because it is the relationship most likely to make yourself known. Working with couples, partners, and those in intimate relationships is a favorite of mine because connection creates resilience. Together, we can work together to discover what intimacy looks like for your partnership—intimacy shouldn’t only be practiced between the sheets.

Therapy is a gift of time and of a safe, supportive space for self-examination. Therapy provides awareness of the choice to shape our lives in meaningful ways. It's a collaborative process between client and therapist facilitating personal growth through exploration of the client's unique beliefs, feelings and behaviors. Pasts influence present realities in ways that are often outside of our awareness, and thus have a profound impact on how we view ourselves, connections to others, and place in the world. Losses and changes create disillusionment and helplessness if not processed to allow forward movement and renewed meaning.

It seems like nothing you say gets through to them anymore. When the one you care most about doesn't seem to listen, it's frightening and isolating. Sometimes just talking to an objective person helps you find a way to live a better life, resolve problems, and make better decisions. Suffering originates from not knowing what to do with life’s challenges. Every person needs guidance to leave behind the confusion of the current situation to breakthrough to a future clarity. It's not too late to learn the skills that can get you off to a fresh start. It's time to break those unproductive patterns and replace them with healthier ones.

I believe that therapy is an individual, unique, and empowered process for each client that allows them to recognize their inner strengths and workings. Each client has their own answers that they are searching for and struggles they are trying to overcome in their daily life. During the process of therapy, I strive to help clients develop an increased sense of autonomy and purpose in order to create movement toward these answers. In succession, I help clients develop healthy ways of coping with stressors, as life is inevitably filled with difficulties and obstacles.

Are you feeling anxious & dissatisfied about your current way of being? Are you noticing habits & patterns that no longer serve you or have you feeling stuck? We all have patterns, learned throughout life, that attempt to keep us from our fullest potential. These patterns can cause us to become anxious, depressed, or question our entire purpose in life should they not align with our desired narrative. Maybe we question the validity of our feelings or the way we navigate conflict. One of the biggest side effects of our learned behaviors is feeling inauthentic to who we truly wish to be.

I believe there is a natural tendency toward growth, a desire to be more of ourselves and to enjoy the things we do. For many, that curiosity and vitality has been restricted or shut down. This may lead to feeling depressed, like nothing will change for you. Or anxious, it will only get worse. Or perhaps you sense things could be different and are frustrated, not knowing how to access that new way of being. Psychotherapy is a process through which you can understand how these feelings have come about and how to access your natural tendency toward wellness.
