About

What services does your practice offer?

Transcend Anxiety is an LA based integrative group psychotherapy practice that strives to honor the connection between mind, body and spirit in the human healing journey. We specialize in providing integrative evidence based treatment for anxiety disorders in children and adults as well as providing psycho-spiritual personal growth services to individuals seeking greater connection with the self and spirit. Our specialty in treating anxiety disorders also includes a high level of expertise in the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). When treating children we work closely with the parents, offering a family based approach to support the whole family system. We empower all of our clients to learn about the important connections between their mind, body and spirit and provide them with the direction and or tools necessary to positively support all aspects of the self in order to transcend beyond their limiting fears and create a life aligned with their values, passions and strengths.

All clinicians are offering Teletherapy options due to COVID-19

What are your practice's specialties?

Our practice specializes in a variety of areas including anxiety and self growth. We believe that at the heart of challenges with anxiety and self growth is our relationship with the experience of fear. At Transend Anxiety, we specialize in helping our clients create a new and healthier relationship with their respective fears, providing them with the tools to work with them differently. In order to do this, our clinical team specializes in various specific modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy to help you learn new ways of thinking and doing and mindfulness, meditation, self compassion and somatic work to help you learn new ways of BEING. All of our clinicians are trained to work in line with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy principles, creating a healing path aligned and motivated by your values. Additionally, all of our therapists are have undergone specialized training in exposure and response prevention (ERP) for the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Why should I choose your practice?

Here at Transend Anxiety, we are fully aware that therapy is just one of the many doorways towards health and healing. We therefore strive to make that doorway as comprehensive as possible and encourage you to find and utilize additional doorways on your healing path. Our clinicians are trained in understanding the relationship and connections between mind, body and spirit and use a very integrative lens and approach throughout the treatment journey. For example, we know that anxiety is closely linked to GI issues and overall inflammation in the body. So in addition to offering excellent evidence based psychological treatment, we will also be helping you explore how to heal your gut microbiome in order to optimize your healing experience. We like to think of our practice as a beautiful fusion of eastern and western healing principals and practices. By combining the wisdom and softness of eastern principals such as mindfulness, self compassion and somatic work with western evidence based modalities such as exposure therapy, we help our clients meet their fears and limitations in a very healing way allowing them to transcend beyond them and into their authentic selves.

How does payment work at your practice?

Transcend Anxiety Psychotherapy Group is a private practice with fees ranging from $180-$225 depending on the provider. We do offer sliding scale options and encourage perspective clients to inquire about that when speaking to a therapist. Payment options include cash, check and secure online transfers. We do not accept credit cards. All payments are made to the head of the practice, Natalie Abrahami. Transcend Anxiety Psychotherapy Group is not contracted with any insurance companies and therefore is considered an out-of-network provider. Many individuals have an out of network reimbursement plan and we encourage our perspective clients to inquire about eligibility for partial reimbursement ahead of time. We provide monthly superbills (a receipt of payments and services that includes diagnostic and therapeutic codes), and clients are free to submit this form to their insurance providers for possible partial reimbursement.
