Martin C Novell, MA, MS, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in West Los Angeles
I am a board certified psychotherapist providing a wide range of evidence based skills tailor-made for individuals and couples. You will not experience the silent treatment. We'll develop a treatment plan to heal strained relationships, difficult situations, depressive and anxious feelings. As a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist I help couples ease into discussions, changing the direction of a conversation from disappointment or divorce to growth. Successful individuals and successful couples know how to re-position their thoughts and feelings to create a better place for themselves in this world.
We can explore the consequences of living with ADHD, Bi Polar Disorder, OCD, ameliorating depression and anxiety. Marriage and relationship issues are approached with researched skills. As a Therapist and Life Coach I facilitate a positive change towards career issues, creative blocks, workplace relationships, so you can move in the direction you imagined.
I have an MA in Psychology, an MS in Education. An expert in psychotherapy I've been interviewed in print, television, and digital media. I have been an actor, agent and educator. With this experience and being a licensed Psychotherapist for more than 20 years, I understand the many paths of the LA lifestyle.
