Family Resource Counseling Center in West Los Angeles, California, offers a broad array of treatment for patients suffering from addiction, eating disorders, emotional trauma, developmental disorders and those navigating difficult life transitions such as divorce and retirement.
FRCC was founded by Dr. Lexi Welanetz, Psy, D. After launching an acting career in her 20s, Welanetz sought therapy for a personal loss and was so inspired by the process that she decided to change paths and devote her career to counseling others. In addition to her work at FRCC, Dr. Welanetz works with patients at Cedars Sinai Hospital and her therapeutic insights have been featured on Fox News and Good Day LA.
Treatment and Staff
Treatment at FRCC is primarily given through individual therapy, though some group therapy is available. The staff are primarily licensed psychologists, MFTs and LMFTs. A team of psychology interns are also available to support each client’s progress through the therapeutic process.
Each clinician has his or her own orientation, thus after an assessment clients are matched with practitioners who fit their specific mental health needs and personalities. If a residential or more structured outpatient treatment is necessary, the clinicians at FRCC have deep roots in the Los Angeles recovery community and are able to make appropriate referrals.
FRCC also has services tailored specifically for adolescents facing issues such as chemical and process addictions, self-esteem problems, self-harming, depression, emotional disturbances, suicidal ideation, bullying and conflict resolution.
Specialized services include treatment for Adult AD/HD, Amicable Divorce, art therapy, biofeedback, hypnotherapy, mindfulness and parenting support. Therapy groups include Infant Massage and Healthy Development, Adults Abused as Children, and Celebrating Your 60s.
In addition to the individual and group therapy which are aimed to meet clients at each stage of life, the center’s website maintains a robust blog where staff clinicians address wide-ranging topics such as infidelity, adoption and the effect of video games on the brain.
FRCC is committed to treating the whole patient and the family unit through multiple ongoing, dynamic therapy options. It’s especially notable in its programs for parenting support, which include play and art therapy options for young children and confidential sessions for adolescents. For those who are looking for a flexible outpatient program with a lot of individual care, this is a great choice.
