Ida Vandaei, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Encino
I work with individuals, couples, and families ranging from teenagers to older adults. In collaboration with the client, my goal is to enhance insight and awareness while promoting skills and strengths. Further, I strive to help clients identify new ways to manage struggles and to make the desired changes they envision.
I use a collaborative approach with emphasis on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which has been shown to be highly effective in the treatment of chronic pain, depression, anxiety and trauma. Further, through the use of acceptance, client-centered, strength-based, and solution-focused, I help foster an environment for patient growth.
My clinical and research experiences have provided me with the skills to work successfully with diverse populations including those with relationship conflicts, adjustment challenges, loss of motivation, chronic medical issues, or dealing with crisis. As a Clinical Social Worker, I've gained knowledge of mechanisms helpful for the whole person.
