It can be scary and unerving to ask for professional help. My goal is to help you find your own tools for success. When we look at the challenges or issues that you are facing we can individualize what your needs are and awaken your own strengths. Therapy is not a place to come because you are broken, it is a place to feel safe, nurtured, and gain strength in knowing the uniqueness that is you. I hope to see you soon.

The nature of my work as a psychotherapist is to strive for a safe and trusting environment the during time that is shared. Together we build the relationship as patient and therapist with the goal of providing a comfortable and private space for us to discuss any challenging issues they are experiencing, decreasing limits and without judgment. My orientation of choice is the psychodynamic orientation and I mainly focus from the psychoanalytic relational model. I received a specialization in child studies and work with adolescents, while seeing adults.

If we are lucky in this life we will experience many inner deaths, each an opportunity to shed the scaly skin of yesterday, to embrace our own expansion, and enter a next dimension of life. If we fail to die, we fail to grow. Sadly, we have lost the ritual container that holds our rites of passage and without the containment and guidance that goes with it many of us feel lost, hopeless, deficient in some way and without a sense of belonging. Therapy in the depth tradition has become a space to compassionately witness and accompany individuals in the alchemical process of healing and growth.

Contacting a psychologist can be uncomfortable, but it can also provide exhilaration and a sense of hope. My clinical practice and personal life are guided by the concept of self-actualization: the innate human potential to move toward a life filled with truth, love, and happiness. If you are confronted with hurdles or temporary deterrents on your path toward fulfillment, I might be able to help. When you're ready, I am here to set up a no-commitment initial session to explore your needs and provide further information. Sincerely, Dr. Amy Reichenbach, Psy.D.

Something isn’t right. You've known It & now it's nagging you. You have an idea of who you want to be in your life - a friend, a lover, happy, have an overall sense of meaning. You're not exactly sure what to do and then the thought "I will figure it out", comes in to calm you almost immediately back to procrastinating in its usual forms. You have tools. Maybe you meditate, do yoga. But when the feelings of Self-Doubt and Inadequacy act up, they take you for a Shameful ride through what could have been & will not be, resulting in "if only I were better at ___." Pushing you once again, into quiet acceptance of the way things are.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Playa Del Rey, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Playa Del Rey are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Playa Del Rey
