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
