Dyan Kolb is a LCSW who operates a private practice with two offices in the Los Angeles area—one in Culver City and another in Torrance. As an addiction specialist, Kolb utilizes CBT with her clients in order to better understand their addiction and dual diagnosis issues to improve quality of life and reduce relapses. She also works with couples and the family members of addicts, as well as individuals struggling with a broad spectrum of mental health disorders.
Kolb’s main clientele base is adults, but she does treat adolescents from time to time. She offers mostly individual therapy along with some group counseling options. Kolb tailors treatment for each client and guides them to look at their behavioral patterns and adjust their thinking to be more positive and ultimately be able to make healthier choices. In some cases Kolb assigns homework to her clients between sessions. She also addresses anger, grief and loss, depression and anxiety and past trauma.
She provides individualized programming for each client and though CBT is her primary modality, she does employ an integrated approach to provide the most effective treatment possible. Additionally, Kolb integrates Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI) into programming as well as other evidence-based approaches. She also recommends clients seek other forms of support, like within the 12-step community.
Along with her private practice, Kolb is also a field instructor through Harbor UCLA Medical Center Outpatient Psychiatry, and works with several treatment teams that mainly focus on dual diagnosis and personality disorders.
Family treatment is all on an individualized basis. Kolb provides resources to loved ones of addicts to Al-Anon.
Kolb brings extensive experience from working with several different populations, including clients in a residential setting and at-risk adolescents. She offers a multitude of approaches and connects with her clients to provide them with the best possible programming to address their specific needs. For those seeking a flexible outpatient option for therapy in LA, this is a great option.
