You are grieving, heartbroken, or lost. You didn’t get the job, you broke up with your partner, someone important has died. Grief is normal and exquisite and painful. You want to talk about it, but you don’t want to burden anyone. Here you have permission to be a burden. To be messy, seen, repetitive, and stuck. I’ll meet you there, but won’t leave you there. We work towards managing the unimaginable. Reckoning with the stories we tell and the paths lost, in order to reconcile with where we truly are. There you will find possibility. New stories, new love, new hope. There you will find the courage to start again.

I am a curious, authentic, and a very human therapist. I love working with people who want to do the work. I am here to provide a safe space that will foster vulnerability and growth. Therapy is so hard sometimes. I am here to make that pill a little easier to swallow. We fall into times where we feel stuck, don't have sufficient self-love, or just have ran out of hope. I am here to support you in getting unstuck, changing your perspective, increasing your self-love, and remind you that there is hope. Just because we don't see the light at the end of the tunnel, it doesn't mean it's not there. In the nature of being authentic: If you're looking for a "cookie-cutter therapist", I am not the one. If you are looking for heavy homework/worksheets, I am not the one. I am very human. At times, I cuss. Because, at times, life just fucking sucks. I am very open to feedback: I have the mental health portion of my job down, but you are the expert in you.

Hello, My name is Thalia Diaz, and I'm thrilled to have been connected with you! As a therapist, I strive to create a warm, caring, and non-judgmental space to work with clients. I am aware that the times in which talk-therapy is sought out are also the times in which life feels overwhelming. Whatever that struggle may be, I believe that the human spirit is strong and capable of healing. I am passionate about working alongside my clients to heal those wounds and setting them up to be able to reach the goals they've set for their futures. Though I have experience working with a wide range of people, my passion is to help young adults who struggle with trauma, depression, grief, and/or anxiety to process their life stories, strengthen their sense of identity, and develop the skills needed for the life they desire.

I started helping those who are seeking to up-level their experiences and shine as their true and authentic selves in 2019. My journey first started in residential treatment facilities where I held space for those in early recovery from substance use disorders. This population ranged from men's only, women's only and LGBTQ+ Many of these individuals also struggled with anxiety, depression, trauma and eating disorders. I have also had the opportunity to work with adolescents at risk of sex trafficking. This work is extremely rewarding as the clients are at an age where they are most influential and willing. I am a deeply spiritual person and practice in the study of yoga and meditation and participate in somatic healings such as Kundalini Light Intergration (KALI) and breathworks. I am also a level two Reiki practitioner (training to become a master) and a certified personal trainer. When I am not holding space for healing, I enjoy being in the outdoors, surfing, climbing, reading and cooking nutritious and fun to eat meals. I hope to continue the journey of providing a safe space for individuals where healing can occur for years to come. I offer sessions both early in the morning (5am - 7am) and later in the evening (6pm - 9pm) to accommodate those who work nine to five or those who just prefer early morning or evening therapy sessions.

As an ABOLITIONIST, I believe in *literally* abolishing police, prisons, & all other forms of state violence. I am happy to discuss in-depth but for now, know that I am most heavily oriented in the work of folx like Project Nia; Interrupting Criminalization; Equitable Care Certification, and Survived & Punished. Of course, I am still deepening my learning and praxis, as one ought. As a RESOURCE MAVEN, I facilitate linkages to information & resources to support people’s wellbeing. Meaning I actually make the calls with you, etc., if wanted/needed. This type of support is a major source of joy for me & something that I’m happy to help with! I’m a FACILITATOR of JOY because, as a Queer, Disabled, Neurodivergent, fat, Gender Nonconforming Black person, I place special emphasis on helping marginalized folx find and (re)create joy in a world that denies us joy. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, my focus is on understanding the environmental and contextual factors at play in your life. I come to therapy with a trauma-informed/healing-centered perspective and work collaboratively with you on determining what kinds of interventions are best suited for your needs. My approach is laid back and can be viewed as “coachy,” meaning I ask questions and provide feedback to help you figure out solutions that will work for your life. I also encourage you to bring your creative and spiritual practices to therapy, so if you want to include art, tarot, crystals, ancestor reverence, etc., we can do that!

I'm Dr. Ryan Reed, a practicing psychologist since 2015. Throughout life, many of us find ourselves feeling pulled in a thousand directions, unable to keep up with the stressors of life. Other times, we struggle with more specific situations like anxiety, grief or loss, depression, or recovering from a trauma. I'm here to help you overcome these hurdles and get back to the life that you want. I also help high performers manage anxiety, improve performance, and avoid burnout. Together, we can identify what's not working and get you back to balance. We'll use a whole self approach, addressing the needs of your mind, body and soul. I am well-experienced with the practical application of mindfulness exercises to help improve and enhance performance. Whatever stage of life you find yourself struggling with at this time, I'm here to help. As someone who has been to therapy, I understand the struggle of seeking help.

How have you been doing lately...really? I often find that we ask this question a lot to one another and often respond with a surface "fine". But we aren't always fine and this is why therapeutic support is so essential to all of us at various times in our life like any other essential personal maintenance that we receive on a regular basis. In my practice I enjoy helping people find their voice to speak to whatever obstacles are in their life with truth and personal power. Accessing this voice can transform lives and help people who feel alone, sad, anxious more connected as they are first connecting with themselves. I enjoy working with various modalities in my practice and operate from the belief that spirit in conjunction with physical and mental well being is a more holistic course of action to help people on their healing journeys!

My name is Shant Bardakjian and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) based in Glendale, California. I currently work with children, adolescents and adults within the greater Los Angeles area. My approach to therapy is tailored to the client’s needs. I enter into therapy with whatever the client brings into the session. If you need a creative approach to solve your problems, then I would use Narrative Therapy. If you need to fix your problem right away, then I would use Solution Focused Therapy. I also use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness. I use an eclectic approach with a person centered lens that can be flexible for whatever need is brought into the room. My communication style is calm and approachable. I would like my clients to feel at ease in sharing whatever is on their heart without fear of judgment. I decided to become a therapist because I have wanted to help people discover their best selves. I have been drawn to helping people discover their innate ability to heal past whatever is keeping them stuck in life. My aim is for whoever works with me to be able to define a goal that can be accomplished and for trust to be gradually built within the therapeutic relationship. In this way, the progress that is seen in therapy will in turn translate to improvements in multiple areas of your life. In our first session together, you can expect the primary focus to be for me to hear your story of what brought you to therapy. The first session is to determine if there is an initial connection and also questions that would enable me to better understand what would work best for you as treatment progresses.

Hi! I'm Estela, Do you ever feel stuck or just have too much going on? Are you in a transition, or having trouble coping with life stressors? A high number of people experience these things in different ways; often times, they just need a reminder of who they are to help discover their own potential to move forward in life. I describe myself as gentle, non-judgmental, and empathic. I Iike to meet my clients where they are.

Most of my work is Brief Emotional Therapy; 4-7 sessions, although I do have folks that have been with me for years. I work primarily with issues of anxiety and depression. I try to help people get through whatever issues they may be experiencing without judgement or attitude; to make sense of the past, present and future ....or at least be peaceful about it. Sometimes successfully managing ourselves through hard times is the cure. We come to see we can get through it all without burning down our world. We come to understand that we can navigate the Anxiety & Depression that are part of life, come out better on the other side and continue on towards growth and evolvement. Anxiety & Depression can be complex and complicated; just like you. While I tend to focus more on moving into the here and now for becoming the person you desire to be and be with, I am willing to explore past issues or traumas that may need some resolve in order for you to move on.

I gained extensive experience of full spectrum of psychiatric diagnoses while working for 5 years at a locked inpatient psychiatric hospital in which I was on the most acute locked unit for 2.5 years and 2 years in the outpatient (PHP/IOP) department as well as working with the Military Residential Treatment department. Subsequently, I have worked for a residential treatment center beginning in 2020-present while I began building my private practice. I am currently contracted to provide EMDR, Somatic Therapy and Reiki at this treatment center as a trauma therapist part-time. Although working with trauma is my passion, I lean in and gravitate toward Attachment Theory, Psychodynamic, Family Systems, Gestalt, CBT, Gottman and mindfulness-based techniques. A significant portion of my practice is blended with resourcing, grounding, body awareness and mapping of emotional experiences. My passion for helping to treat trauma has guided additional training in somatic psychotherapy and EMDR treatment. I work primarily with adult individual women, men, couples, and gender fluid identifiers 18+ years of age. I am impassioned to work with diverse ethnicities, those disenfranchised, and members of the LGBTQ community.

Few, if any, of us grow up in an environment that perfectly fits our needs. As we grow, we adapt to our surroundings in ways that may run counter to our vitality, health, and happiness. By exploring and understanding the underlying emotional and psychological patterns that shape our lives, we are able to develop choice in whether to engage in patterns and habits that no longer serve us. As a psychotherapist, I provide a curious, and compassionate presence, lending my heart and mind to this process of self-exploration and self-understanding.
