Sherman Oaks Counseling Center


The Basics

Located in its namesake, the vibrant San Fernando Valley neighborhood of Sherman Oaks, Sherman Oaks Counseling Center is a boutique treatment facility that specializes in the care of clients struggling with a range of issues including substance use disorders, trauma, learning disorders and stressful life events. It’s the private office of Linda Arbiter, an MFT who offers psychotherapy and counseling for adults and adolescents. Sherman Oaks Counseling Center primarily facilitates outpatient evidence-based therapy and 12-step recovery; medication management is not a component of the programming.

Treatment and Staff

Clients beginning treatment undergo a comprehensive assessment during their first visit. This helps Arbiter to develop the most effective individualized treatment plan. The length of treatment varies depending on the specific needs and goals of the client. Arbiter utilizes a multi-faceted treatment approach that utilizes a range of methods including 12-step recovery, evidence-based models like CBT as well as holistic therapies like guided imagery and acupuncture.

Arbiter offers treatment for a wide range of issues including substance use disorder, learning disorders, trauma, personal and family problems and stressful life events. For clients with substance use disorders, treatment programming is tailored to address substance use patterns and co-occurring psychiatric disorders. Substance use disorder treatment often includes a combination of 12-step recovery principles and acupuncture as well as the mind-body method of guided imagery to promote relaxation, reduce stress and eliminate triggers. Family therapy helps to re-build trust, self esteem and heal the trauma that families experience with a relative struggling with addiction. In addition, Arbiter works with child and adolescent clients with learning disorders, depression, anxiety and fear.

In addition to family therapy, Arbiter facilitates individual and group therapy as well as couples counseling. Topics include stress management, domestic violence, parenting issues, divorce and reconciliation.

Linda Arbiter is an MFT with multiple affiliations including the Women’s Association of Addiction Therapists, American Association for Marriage and Family Therapists and the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists. Arbiter is certified in addiction treatment, domestic violence and trauma.  


Arbiter also offers a specialized group for adolescents caught in the middle of divorce. The group meets weekly for two months and topics include grief and loss, boundaries and developing coping strategies.

In Summary
