Therapist in Los Angeles, California Matthew Pfeiffer, LPCC

Matthew Pfeiffer, LPCC

When working with patients, I take a holistic approach and assess from a bio/psycho/social/spiritual point-of-view. I believe assessing the whole patient is the best way to understand underlying problems/symptoms related to psychopathology. Most importantly, empathy, trust, a therapeutic alliance and rapport is of utmost concern; I want your therapy hour to be useful, beneficial, and enjoyable. My areas of specialty include treatment of sleep disruptions/insomnia, depression and anxiety. Issues that I enjoy focusing on in a therapeutic context include chronic illness, medication adherence, coping skills, infidelity, life transitions, men’s issues, spirituality and stress.

I have experience working with LGB clients on issues of sexual identity, orientation, and HIV status. I draw from several approaches and modalities in providing therapy including christian counseling, person-centered approach, interpersonal-therapy, political psychology, and psychodynamic therapies. I completed my degrees in Clinical Psychology from Alliant International University – San Francisco. I am currently licensed to practice as an LPCC in California and LPC in Oregon. I have also earned a Master’s degree in Conflict Resolution from Portland State University in Portland.
