If you or your child suffer from OCD or other anxiety disorders, you're not alone. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness, yet most sufferers don't receive proper, evidence-based treatment. OCD/anxiety can cause problems socially, academically, professionally, and create chaos with family members. The good news is that there is help. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has repeatedly shown to be the most effective approach for defeating OCD and anxiety. CBT creates new neuro-pathways by changing the way you think and behave. It's basically exercise for the brain. The more you flex those brain muscles, the stronger you become.

Happiness, peace and joy are our natural state. When we are feeling depressed, anxious, frustrated or stagnant, that’s a signal that something is pinching us off from our natural state. What is that thing or things? Psychotherapy is one way to find out what those things are. Through therapeutic conversation, we will try on different ideas and try out new actions to discover ways to allow that happiness, peace and joy to flow into your life. And, as we feel increased satisfaction about our life, we are open to increased satisfaction in our relationships, work and future.

As a cancer survivor myself, I know first hand how scary the "C" word is. As a result of cancer treatments, often times people develop mild to severe forms of depression, anxiety, scanxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Many people experience symptoms during treatment while others are symptomatic only after they are in full remission. My practice treats fellow warriors and their families that are navigating the cancer process, survivors trying to figure out their “new normal”, individuals in remission for years but are still processing the events that once happened, and those currently battling metastasized cancers.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Los Angeles, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Los Angeles listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Los Angeles are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Los Angeles. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Los Angeles

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Los Angeles you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Los Angeles and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Los Angeles or family therapy in Los Angeles.
