Dustin Plattner, PsyD, Psychologist in Pasadena
Are you having a difficult time managing your child's tough behaviors? Are you needing support in navigating the ups and downs of parenting? Are you struggling with your own family history or trauma from your childhood? Being courageous in setting goals to explore these dynamics in your own life or your child's is what I believe defines human thriving. Working in a supportive and nonjudgmental therapeutic relationship is effective in creating human thriving and alleviating suffering. It is my privilege to walk along side you or your child to create a more successful fulfilling life.
My expertise is in helping teens and children. I first seek to understand the presenting issue and the concerns of the family. I then create a "game plan" to resolve the issues and restore the broken connection in the family.
When I work with individuals and couples, I help explore the relational dynamics that are preventing emotional growth, positive healthy behaviors, and happiness in their lives. I work from a psychoanalytic understanding, which holds that healing comes through understanding how past relationships influence current relationships.
