Accepting Clients

Hello! My name is Ryan and I'm passionate about helping people heal from their past in order to live more confidently into the future.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles, CA

About My Clients

I love working with people who are courageous enough to look deeper into why they do the things they do, and are ready to make changes. Most of my clients are highly functional individuals who feel stuck in specific areas of their lives. Whether the challenge is anxiety, depression, issues from trauma, or relationships struggles, my clients tend to have an appreciation for eastern concepts (yoga, meditation, etc) as well as an openness to learn about how their brains work from a western view.

My Background and Approach

I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and who holds dual Master’s Degrees in Spiritual Psychology and Depth Psychology. With over 15 years of experience studying the mind/body connection, I blend concepts and practices from Eastern philosophy like mindfulness and compassion in conjunction with Western advances in neuroscience, trauma recovery, and psychedelics. I am trained in the trauma models TRM & CRM and EMDR; as well as the behavioral modalities CBT & DBT and I actively pursue ongoing education in psychedelic assisted psychotherapy. For couples I use concepts from Attachment Theory, Imago, EFT, and the Gottman Method to increase communication and relational healing for couples that have experienced betrayal, loss of connection, diminished spark, and communication breakdowns. I teach couples how to spot ineffective methods of communication and practice in a new way that allows both people to feel heard and respected.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

How you relate to the issue IS the issue! I learned this concept very early on in my education and experience has shown me that if you can change the way you relate to your problems (with more compassion and acceptance... letting go of judgment) those issues paradoxically have more space to shift and change. Working with me you will learn to relate to yourself, partners, and the world with more love and radical acceptance, thereby changing the way you relate to your problems... and ultimately changing your life.
