The Wilshire/Valley Therapy Center & Management and Pacific West Counseling was founded in 1993. It is a consortium of independently-licensed and highly-trained clinicians who practice throughout locations in Greater Los Angeles. Its mission is to “help clients lead more satisfying, relational and productive lives via the transformative power of healing in a psycho-therapeutic setting.”
The centers offer one-on-one, couples and family counseling for substance abuse, compulsive behavior and mental health disorders. Conditions treated include, but are not limited to, depression, ADHD, anxiety, substance abuse and co-dependence. Clinicians also provide support for parenting issues, blended families and those with health care challenges such as cancer and HIV/AIDS.
Treatment and Staff
Both short-term and intensive, long-term therapy is offered at Wilshire/Valley. Short-term therapy may last four to six sessions and address an urgent issue in the client’s life, such as the dissolution of a relationship. Long-term therapy enables the client to examine their personal history and create new behavior patterns supported by a trusting relationship with the clinician. Wilshire/Valley uses CBT, DBT as well as psychodynamic process and EMDR for trauma treatment.
If clients are struggling with addiction and compulsive behavior, their therapist may recommend they attend 12-step meetings or refer them to an outpatient or residential treatment program. The treatment team at Wilshire/Valley includes psychologists, LMFTs and LCSWs.
For families and couples, Wilshire/Valley offers a targeted three-session couples package that focuses on improving couples’ communication skills and ongoing co-parenting therapy for clients who are raising their children in separate households.
While Wilshire/Valley does not have psychiatrists on staff for dual diagnosis support, clinicians are able to provide referrals and provide coordinated care to clients already in treatment with a psychiatrist.
Wilshire/Valley provides ADD/ADHD evaluations and some clinicians have expertise in Christian and post-partum issues. Head clinician Katrina Wood, PsyD, authors the psychotherapy blog, which delves into treatment issues encountered by many clients seeking therapy. Tele-therapy over Skype is also available at the discretion of the therapist.
Wilshire/Valley Therapy Center and Management and Pacific West Counseling have been serving the residents of Greater Los Angeles for over two decades. Their clinicians have varied and extensive areas of expertise and deep knowledge of the behavioral health resources in Los Angeles, enabling them to provide coordinated care and referrals to additional treatment programs and supportive services in the area.
