    Whether you're a woman in your 20's, 30's, 40's, or 50's, most of us wants a partner in a loving relationship we can count on and build a good life with. Dating in LA is a challenge all its own. Looking for guys in the same places and coming up empty. Searching online but finding more catfish than keepers. And when the perfect one seems to appear, you learn what ghosting means.   Then, for the first time, you really opened your heart up to all the possibilities that love might offer.  And the one you fell for was different, yes, but he gave you something you never realized you were missing. That doesn’t mean that everything is easy. You face the same challenges that any couple does, but there are unique obstacles to maintaining a loving relationship with a man from another culture. You always thought you would be a happy and deliriously in love and in a relationship now that would be leading to marriage. The uncertainty and worry that comes over you when you think about having to start over or lose something that really gave you a lot of what you wanted and needed to feel loved, makes you ache and takes you to familiar thoughts about being single and emotionally alone again. Don’t let someone tell you that he just doesn’t get you, and he never will.  Let’s see what the possibilities are for you.  I can help you both face the misunderstandings, the doubt, and the confusion.  Call me now and let's begin today. As a 40 something woman of color in a healthy relationship and therapist, I understand the unique challenges you face and how to support you through them. You will have the safety and space to finally say what you need to, freely exploring what's holding you back, so that you can access the life you deserve. I can help. Let me be here for you. Give me a call today and schedule your first 15-minute phone consultation today at 323-676-1633. Let's begin. My Specialties: Couples/Relationships, Depression, Spirituality/Spiritual Growth, Anxiety, Work and life transitions, Race and culture, breakups/dating, stress of doing life solo, single ladies, race and cultural challenges difficulties and struggles in friendships. support through college life, and family disconnection.

    (Individuals, "Couples Counseling," Children and Family Counseling, Self-esteem, Domestic Violence) Life has a way of "Life-ing" us! You will not find the word "Life-ing" in the dictionary. However, if you have suffered losses, expected or unexpected, then you know through experience what "Life-ing" describes. It describes the pain in relationship breakups, job losses, disillusioned by those you trusted, fear in life transitions, pain in wanting to keep a relationship so desperately, that you lose your self, and times that are so difficult that you begin to question your faith in God. The list goes on and on. If circumstances of life has temporarily knocked the wind out of you and you are having a problem getting back up, let's talk! I specialize in all types of relationships; such as with others, with yourself, and with God. You do not have to continue to feel anxious, or depressed.

    My primary focus as a psychotherapist is RELATIONSHIPS... how we relate to ourselves and how this informs the way in which we relate to others. I can talk about my 20 years of experience, my training in cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, my degrees from Spelman and UCLA, etc... but therapy too, is ultimately about a relationship. It isn't always easy to sit in front of someone and share personal things, especially if culture dictates that you don't need to "air your dirty laundry". I am here to listen, respect where you are and also push gently when needed. Therapy is about finding balance. Whatever you are experiencing, whether you are too uncertain, too filled with sadness, too anxious, too available, too stuck in your past...we will work together to shift this dynamic. Working with you to look at things from a variety of angles, build insight and improve coping can lead to more balance in your life as an individual and in your relationships. I'm located right in downtown Los Angeles!

    Specialties:
    Dr. Tai is a licensed psychologist who specializes in working with professional Black women who despite having it all together on the outside, are struggling on the inside. Why, you might ask? Because she knows that as beautiful, smart, bold, and fabulous as you may be, sometimes our "stuff" gets in the way of our pursuit of love, money & happiness. She started her practice because she believes Black women shouldn't have to sensor themselves in therapy. They should be able to talk freely about family, work, social justice, beauty standards, dating, self-doubt, and anything else on their mind without wondering if their therapist will understand. She believes Black women deserve a therapist who gets it and who has the knowledge and experience to integrate all of those cultural nuances into a relevant treatment approach. Whether you are dealing with career and relationship issues or struggling with grief, trauma, depression or anxiety, Dr. Tai is the "go to" therapist for Black women who serve as leaders in their home, community, and work lives. All of her sessions are completely virtual. As a client, you will have your sessions over a secure video chat platform. She practices within a short term model offering real solutions using research backed interventions.

Using an integrative approach of cognitive-behavioral, rational emotive behavior, and dialectical-behavioral therapies, I assist my clients to become whole and healed by learning a new way of responding. In addition, using comprehensive psychological evaluations, I decipher difficult and-or multiple diagnoses, assess an individual's emotional and cognitive functioning, and innate abilities for a variety of purposes including forensic evaluations and expert testimony. Clinically, I specialize in working with adolescents and adults who have experienced significant trauma. My areas of specialty are self-esteem, emotion regulation, and relationship difficulties. All evaluations are based on Best Practices and are structured to gather objective information about the individual using research to support the findings. I am culturally sensitive and acknowledge the many dimensions of my clients' needs such as incorporation of spirituality and religion. I believe that everyone should be given an opportunity to heal, which is why I am happy to offer my services on a sliding fee scale.

    Specialties:
    I utilize a person-centered approach, pulling from my various trainings to cater to each client's needs. I have extensive experience working with trauma, PTSD, ADHD, anxiety and depression. As we explore your areas of need, we’ll identify appropriate coping techniques that allow for relaxation and encourage progress in your treatment. During child, adolescent, and pre-teen sessions we may utilize art, play, and cognitive behavioral therapies, as age-appropriate. Children may be more hesitant to engage in treatment, so I take extra time time make them feel comfortable, build rapport, and establish trust so the therapeutic work can be done effectively. Throughout treatment, I implement cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to assist the client in understanding how their thoughts and feelings affect behaviors. As adults, we may know that something just isn’t right within us but may not know what it is. That is where I enter. My goal is to provide you and/or your family members with an inviting environment that supports you through your journey and will assist every person in mapping out a clear path to the healing and happiness they are looking for.

    Do you feel like you cannot help but pick poor partners? Do they often resemble those who hurt you most growing up? Do you feel like nowhere feels safe ever since your sexual assault? Are you worried that your teen may be hooking up online? Do you fear that if your partner(s) knew the real extent of your sexual desires, they would not accept you? Are you struggling to recapture your sex drive after children, surgeries, menopause, or some other twists in life? I am a sex therapist and trauma specialist. Everyday I guide people through difficult issues like affairs, low sex drive, sexual abuse, and problematic sexual behaviors. My certification in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) provides me with one of many tools to treat survivors of sexual trauma. My goal is to help survivors regain a sense of control over their bodies. I help teenagers and adults change their stories from “What’s wrong with me?” to “What happened to me?” Although some people seek me out for help overcoming their sexual abuse and for improving their sexual health, you may have goals rooted in one area and not the other. I believe the natural progression of healing from sexual abuse is sexual health.

    Here to help you to feel strong and in control. I work with people who have been hurt and betrayed by those who were supposed to love them. If your current relationship is causing you pain or if you have escaped from abuse or violence, you are in the right place. Fear does not have to rule your every move. Together, you and I will address what has been scaring you so that you can open the door to a life of possibility and begin enjoying yourself while feeling secure and confident. We are wired for love, but not everyone loves in a healthy way. The acts of sexual and physical assault often result in lasting, disturbing flashbacks while the betrayal leaves wounds that cut far beyond the body and into the soul. You do not deserve to suffer in this way. Choose a therapist who helps you to execute a plan that will change your life for the better. My use of evidenced-based tools such as TF-CBT and EMDR can encourage faster healing than with talk alone. You deserve to laugh again. Schedule an appointment today.

    My clients are creative, thoughtful, ambitious, and insightful people who start therapy when they feel lost, anxious, and relationally disconnected. They sense their inherent potential for progress and creative expression, but are caught in circumstances that don't nurture their talents, abilities, and passions. Over the years, I've especially observed this dilemma in creative-types, POC, and partners torn between their pursuits of profession, relationship, and family. My passion is moving people toward audacious imagining and authentic intimacy - upholding a philosophical belief that living a life filled with creativity and interconnection is possible. By collaboratively tapping into your cultural-creative-self, we'll co-create a sustainable framework for creative living that aligns with your core values and strengthens your relationships. In this way, therapy is both a process of healing and a revolutionary act of resistance against the status quo.. Personal experiences as a creative person-of-color uniquely inform my work. I value safe, dynamic environments for exploring our imagination, desires, and hopes. Through this work, clients report feeling a positive shift in the quality of their relationships and renewed confidence in their roles as partner, parent, and creator.

    Specialties:
    I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT), with Master's Degrees in both Psychology and Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University. I have private practice offices in the mid-city area of Los Angeles and in downtown Los Angeles. My role as a psychotherapist is to provide a safe and nurturing therapeutic environment for clients to work through a wide range of problems. I work with clients as a partner and assist them in developing more useful ways of thinking and behaving. These changes in turn improve overall mood and relationships with others. My theoretical orientation and approach to psychotherapy is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This theoretical orientation is based on the "here and now" type of therapy, which places an emphasis on problem-solving in the present and the future. It is a distinctly positive approach to psychotherapy. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is useful in resolving issues related to: low self-esteem, lack of confidence, fears and anxieties, depression, problems with relationships including family issues, grief and loss, and money and work issues. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a structured and directed approach to psychotherapy, and it always includes homework assignments between sessions. The homework may include reading assignments or practicing techniques discussed and learned during sessions. Some of the common CBT techniques implemented during therapy include: Thought Records, Journaling, Recognizing Cognitive Distortions, and Relaxed Breathing. CBT therapy is based upon the principle that our perceptions (thoughts) affect our emotions, behaviors, and physiological responses. Therefore, changing our perceptions can alter and improve our mood.

    I have a private practice in South Berkeley where I work to support teens, adults, and couples. My am certified in EMDR, which I use to work with issues including trauma, addictions, complex grief, anxiety, relationships, and life transitions of all sorts. EMDR is a brief therapy technique developed for the treatment of trauma, and useful in any circumstance where a client’s thoughts and emotions are inconsistent, or in conflict with each other. I also practice neurofeedback, a way of training the brain to better self-regulate, and to function optimally. In my mind, therapy is not a top-down process, but is a relationship we co-create specifically to suit your needs, and situation. I create an environment designed to help you feel safe, heard, and respected. I have a relational style, meaning you will receive feedback from me, and never feel like you’re talking to a blank wall.

    I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 20 years of combined experience as a clinician, educator, and clinical supervisor. My goal as a therapist is to assist you in developing and strengthening any relationship in your life, whether it be with yourself, your partner, or your family. Working extensively with adults and adolescents has reinforced my commitment to helping all my clients manage the problems that confront them, including but not limited to depression, anxiety, relational conflicts, sexual identity, substance use, divorce, loss and grief, parenting and stresses that arise during life’s transitions. I recognize that we all enter into relationships with the best of intentions and sometimes find ourselves disillusioned by the amount of conflict we may experience. We can become so fearful that we find ways to sabotage these relationships and distance ourselves from the very thing we crave – human connection. I can help you feel more connected not only to others, but also to yourself.

    Specialties:
    I am an eclectic therapist, meaning I do not subscribe to any one therapeutic modality as I believe the therapeutic process is fluid and I as a clinician must be the same. Some of the methods I love the most are the non-traditional options that lend to healing according to the patient; not necessarily what the book says. In an effort to meet my clients where they are, I will take the time needed to examine, with you, the core issues surrounding the problem and assist in developing solutions from that ground work. I specialize in healing work designed to address trauma and I work at the pace my client is able to manage. I have worked with survivors of trauma ranging from survivors of violent crime and homicide; adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse; survivors of domestic violence; rape/sexual assault and children of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse. I have experience working with women who are survivors of Human Sex Trafficking and children and adolescents surviving CSEC (Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children. I believe the first step toward healing is in the therapeutic relationship and I work with my patients to provide an atmosphere of trust and confidentiality that assist with building the foundation for successful treatment. I am competent and comfortable working with individuals, couples, children/adolescents, and families. My work includes working with clients who suffer from depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, chronic illness, borderline personality disorder, relationship issues, family discord, and rebuilding after divorce. In addition, I provide coaching for those in need of working through job stress, transition, or career/professional development.

    Embodied Truth Healing & Psychological Services is a space for intentional healing of the whole self - Mind/Body/Heart/Spirit. It is an intimate and intentional space for seeking truth. Life has its ways of wedging itself in tiny spaces, in our minds, bodies, and self perceptions -- often creating illusions about who we are, and inevitably separating us from our personal truths. This happens particularly when we are navigating difficult life transitions and relationship/family challenges, in experiencing/remembering trauma/abuse, and in pursuit of becoming a better version of ourselves. My name is Dr. Shena Young and I believe healing happens when we approach it holistically, in pursuit of truth. I see myself as a mirror of personal truth, clarity, and wholeness and am intentional in co-creating a space that allows my clients to experiment with authenticity and vulnerability. I specialize in working with women of color and survivors of sexual trauma, with an emphasis on restoring connection to the body/intuition. In the spirit of wholeness and embodiment, I incorporate body-centered approaches, including trauma-informed yoga, energy healing, and techniques that help rebalance the senses and physiology of the body. If you are interested in working with me, send me a message through my website @ http://www.embodiedtruthhealing.com/healing-services. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Have you been struggling with being in relationships which you feel abused or used? Do you feel like you only attract people who are emotionally unhealthy or unkind? Perhaps you may have started to believe, that there is no such thing as love, and that you are going to be alone or unhappy forever. While you may have been disappointed or hurt by love, you long for a connection with someone. Deep down you are longing that special person that you can trust and be in love with. You may hide tears behind your smile, and pretend that things are okay - when inside you feel scared because everything is falling apart. I specialize in working with women of color who feel as though they are unloved, unwanted, abused, and not good enough. We can work together to get to the root of all of those unpleasant feelings, and move past the experiences of hurtful relationships, so that you can create a fulfilling life, have a wonderful partner, and most importantly feel good enough to smile again. Call now so that I can help you with getting life back on track, and back to healthy loving and long-lasting relationships.

    Your feeling stuck in life. You have or had big dreams that continue to go unfulfilled as you live every day in survivor mode. Focused on making sure that everyone is ok or making so little that you can only cover your basics, your finding that your ambitions are gone. You used to be more creative but you’re blocked. Being a fighter has something that has always been a part of your identity. You’ve been through a lot in your life and yet you’ve overcome it all to get to where you are. Yet something is still missing and vulnerability alert you’re tired of being the tough one. The strong black woman. Being a black woman in America is tough. From the day to day microaggressions you have to deal with daily from society and work to feeling like you have to fight against stereotypes, you do it all with grace. But it's at a cost. The cost is that your constantly on guard, ready to protect yourself and your loved ones, leaving you exhausted. Depleted at the end of the day. Being black in America can feel traumatizing and the unspoken truth is that the symptoms you experience daily, being on guard (hypervigilance), being worried and cautious about how others perceive you as to not have your life or work negatively impacted (anxiety), difficulty sleeping and general health issues are all symptoms found in people either history's of traumas such as sexual abuse and neglect. As a trauma therapist who is also black I understand the pain and exhaustion you face daily. But there is hope. The good news is that you no longer have to struggle alone. More important I can help you get off the merry go round and set you on the path to achieve your goals. It’s never to late to live your dreams and I will support you as you take action. Whether your fighting the ghosts of a traumatic childhood or your struggling as your adjusting to something (like a big move or parenthood), you know you want and can have more. Time to take action. Contact me for your free 25 minute free consultation.

    Life is a journey full of ups and downs, inevitable changes, and detours. While we often wish for a life void of pain, problems, and struggle, the fact of the matter is that type of life doesn’t exist…for anyone. However, no matter how ugly life can get or how trying the circumstances we face may be, there exists this beautiful phenomenon, called hope, that is waiting for us to grab ahold of it. Maybe life has given you reasons to lose hope or maybe the pain of your past and present and your fear of the future has overcrowded your ability to even believe that hope and opportunity exists. Sometimes, faith steps in and gives you the hope you need to continue on the journey or inspiration from elsewhere reminds you that you can overcome just like you did the last time. Other times, you realize no matter how hard you try, or how hard you pray, you need someone to help you make sense of it all. This is where I’d like to step in. My passion and joy is to join alongside hurting, confused, or simply evolving men, women, boys and girls, as they make sense out of their respective journeys of life. I’d love to join alongside you.
