Klaskin Therapy


Topher M., Santa Monica, CA 2/27/2014

Dr. Klaskin is an exceptional therapist. Having been going to her on and off for help as needed for almost a decade, I can say with authority that she is incredibly caring, helpful, and expert at leading her patients towards overcoming the issues that are holding them back, and leading them towards their full potential. I don't know where I would be without her help -- I can't imagine how I could have gotten through some extraordinarily difficult experiences in life without the chance to come in to the trusted, safe environment that is her office, and work through all sorts of intense feelings and conflicts under her expert, thoughtful care. I am and will forever be deeply and immensely grateful for the progress I've been able to make with her help. After a number of sessions years ago, I was able to overcome some intense problems enough to go on to great success personally. Then, life threw another super-crazy thing my way, and I found myself back getting Dr. Klaskin's help again to overcome this new, epic trauma that brought so much suffering. I absolutely don't know how I could have survived without her help. I found myself again climbing out of the pit, seeing increased success in my personal and professional life almost with every therapy session. I was referred to her by a previous therapist I had seen in another city while in college. I had tried another counselor in Beverly Hills first who frankly did more harm than good, and was relieved to then find Dr. Klaskin and learn after a couple sessions that I could trust her approach. She's a great listener. She's also not afraid to help you and guide you toward healthier thinking when you get off track, as appropriate. She's extremely empathic, and isn't judgmental or confrontational; instead, she helps you get to the deeper issues that underlie the issues at the surface. I was touched by the fact that she cared enough about her many patients' common needs to put together an (optional) group for those who shared a common trauma, to help each other address common challenges. But frankly nothing can top the healing power of a standard one-on-one therapy session with Dr. Klaskin. When life gets you down and you're overwhelmed and don't know how to keep going, a call or email to her to set up an appointment brings the assurance that once again, you will be able to get through what life throws your way

Dr. Klaskin is an incredibly effective therapist. My life would not be the same without her. She not only has allowed me to learn so much about myself, but she has also taught me the necessary skills to make myself a better version of me and has also taught me how to cope with the various challenges and stresses I have faced and continue to face in my life. I hope that everyone has the opportunity to work with a therapist who understands them and exhibits compassion in a comforting environment. I cannot say enough good things about Dr.K and I feel blessed to have had her a part of my life for six years.

Prior to working with Dr. Klaskin, I'd been to therapy once before in my life. It was an unpleasant and stressful experience. After moving to LA I knew I needed someone to help me wade through the stumbling blocks I'd engineered for myself -- something I'd been trying to do on my own unsuccessfully up until that point. After vetting several therapists I ultimately selected Dr. Klaskin and cannot say enough positive things about my experience with her. She has helped me more than I can say, and has gone above and beyond to cater to my situation with kindness and consideration beyond what I'd expect from a therapist. Dr. Klaskin helped me in a time that I was not able to help myself. Because of her considerate support, listening, and outside perspective, I've been able to see things clearly, and curate the toolbox I need to continue moving forward.

Melissa Klaskin was a referral from a counselor at my college. I saw her for about a year. She definitely helped get me through a very tough time and transitional period in my life! I've had therapists in the past that simply sit there and let you vent, but don't help you actually make changes in your life. Dr. Klaskin is definitely NOT one of those therapists - she's so much better! She helped me work through my issues, find the underlying causes, and then take steps towards overcoming those issues. She will push you and question your illogical or self-destructive behavior or thoughts. At the same time - she is very compassionate and nurturing. I would recommend her to anyone looking to make changes in his or her life. Just make sure that you are ready to ACTUALLY change

I found Dr. Klaskin after requesting referrals from a trusted, well-known graduate school professor in my field of organization development. I was immediately impressed by Dr. Klaskin's web site as it was clear and direct and made getting started with the psychotherapy process easy. I also appreciated and admired her acceptance of many insurance plans and her commitment to providing access to quality mental health support regardless of income level. In our sessions, Dr. Klaskin helped me with my adjustment to motherhood. Through questioning, listening, reframing and validating, she helped me work through specific challenges in my marriage and at work and provided insight into my own emotions. I will definitely return to Dr. Klaskin the next time I need mental health support.
