Dr. Art Khachikyan is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with a private practice in the Greater Los Angeles Area, and serves both individual adults and couples across California for virtual sessions. Clients come to Dr. Khachikyan when they are seeking to create change in their lives; through a process of identifying areas of strength and moments for growth, Dr. Khachikyan works with clients to develop and utilize more effective coping and communication skills.
Many of Dr. Khachikyan's clients come to therapy with emotional pain, adjustment and acculturation issues, anxiety, depression, intimate partner issues, career challenges, or a lack of joy in their lives. In session, Dr. Khachikyan uses a customized plan based on the treatment that will best suit each individual's needs and goals. Drawing from CBT, DBT, mindfulness practices, solution-focused therapy, humanistic, psychoanalytic/Jungian and other effective therapy techniques, Dr. Khachikyan approaches each client with a culturally sensitive lens, working to make them feel heard and understood.
In addition to his work with individuals, Dr. Khachikyan also welcomes couples to his practice. Moments of betrayal and barriers to trust can take a big toll on a relationship; in his work with couples, Dr. Khachikyan focuses on helping clients find a new sense of balance/connection.
Dr. Khachikyan started his private practice to serve his community by providing culturally sensitive/informed therapy.
