Hadley Tarantino, LMFT #112466

I specialize in working with young adults with trauma and PTSD, anxiety, depression, dissociation, and depersonalization/derealization. I also work with adolescents and children facing life transitions, self-esteem issues, and emotional regulation.

My practice is dedicated to helping those who seek a compassionate and nurturing space. My approach is rooted in psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and person-centered frameworks. Although my work is based in these approaches, I work collaboratively with each client to tailor therapy to best help attain their goals.My experience working with a range of different levels of care including residential treatment centers, intensive outpatient programs, and community mental health has given me the ability to gain skills and resources in varying therapeutic interventions, including but not limited to trauma-informed care and dialectical behavior therapy.

My educational background includes a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology with and Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pepperdine University.My therapeutic style can best be described as warm, compassionate, and empathic. I believe it is important to find a therapist who is the right fit for you which is why I offer a 20 minute complimentary consultation.

I offer daytime, evening, and weekend hours. I look forward to discussing your goals for therapy and ways to create a meaningful and fulfilled life.I am now accepting new clients.

Dena Klotz, AMFT

I work collaboratively with people to help them develop healthy relationships with themselves and others. I provide counseling to individuals, couples and families to enable people to heal, grow and transform, recognize their strengths and creativity, communicate better with others and become more alive and aware so they can live an authentic life. I believe healing comes from feeling empowered, gaining a stronger sense of self, understanding recurring patterns, cultivating self-compassion, feeling alive, uncovering new coping mechanisms, and being able to make desired changes in a safe, nonjudgmental and nurturing environment. I believe the most important aspect of therapy is my relationship with you, and that through this relationship you will be able to understand yourself and make the changes you want to make.

I have a Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, with a concentration in Mindfulness, from Phillips Graduate University, a Juris Doctorate degree from Pepperdine University, and a Bachelor of Arts degree form University of California, Los Angeles. I also am pursuing a certification in Imago Relationship Therapy, the center of which is a special type of conscious dialogue that helps couples (and others) move from blame and reactivity to healing, growth and greater connection.

Rachel Chistyakov, AMFT

I work with adults, teenagers, and children who struggle with PTSD, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, and bereavement. I utilize talk therapy, expressive therapy, play therapy, and specific treatments like EMDR and TRM to offer comprehensive care in order to explore problems on a deeper level. I use attachment theory as my therapeutic orientation to help clients better understand how early childhood relationships, as well as current friendships and other significant relationships, can affect all aspects of one’s life and how one may navigate through the world.

I received my Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage & Family Therapy from Pepperdine University, and I am currently enrolled as a doctoral student at Alliant International University and hope to receive my PsyD in 2022. I am currently receiving training for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and am trained in the Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM). I have taken and continue to take various workshops in play therapy techniques and different types of family therapy.

I am accepting new clients and have a wide range of availability during the week. If you would like to have a free 20 minute consultation, feel free to reach out to me at (818)-422-7691 or email me at rchistyakov@alliant.edu

Self Worth • Anxiety • Somatics • Depression • LGBTQ

I believe that the power of therapy starts by creating a healthy therapeutic alliance in order to explore what is keeping you “stuck” in your life.

No matter where you are on your journey, I will meet you where you are at and take you at a pace that will help you succeed. With an empathetic and nonjudgmental approach, we will set achievable goals and create a plan for how to make these goals happen. In session I will teach you new coping skills to cultivate the desired changes you want to make in your life. My belief is that with some guidance, every client has the power, and strength to take control of their lives. Live a life that is fully authentic free of guilt and shame.

I work with teenage and adult clients, individuals or couples. I specialize in anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, trauma and LGBTQ. I believe in the mind-body connection and that the somatic experience needs to be addressed to help relieve the mind from symptoms. I received my Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pepperdine University. My approach is rooted in psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and mindfulness based approaches. I am also fascinated by the incorporation of Attachment theories principles.
