Samantha Rader, PhD, Psychologist in Los Angeles
I have a holistic, outside-the-box approach to psychotherapy. I seek to illuminate your internal world, while helping you connect to yourself, others and the world in a meaningful way. I work to build an authentic, trusting relationship with you, and aim to embody warmth, optimism, curiosity and empathy. My focus is psychoanalytic, meaning we will explore how your early experience shaped the way you see yourself and the world, because this often determines how your life unfolds now. We will crawl into the matrix together and re-shape your core beliefs to find you greater health and joy.
I earned my Bachelor's degree from Vassar College, and my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Alliant International University (CSPP). I have also studied Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, reiki, yoga and mindfulness.
My clients are: individual adults, adolescents, and couples.
