Looking for a therapist can be a very disconcerting process. In my search I encountered several therapists who seemed very impersonal, were eager to take my money for the session fee, and made money off using their title as a licensed psychologist as a way to sell picture books….. I was almost ready to give up, when I was referred to Athena through an acupuncturist. Everything that has already been written about Athena on here is true. Her location was convenient for me as I live in the Los Feliz/Silverlake area, and she also has a West LA office. She is such a genuine and compassionate person and every time I leave her office I feel like an immense weight has been lifted. I also really believe her method of therapy (mind body spirit psychotherapy) is much more effective than just simply talk therapy. I am so thankful to have found her :)
