Professional statement

Dr. Maxwell Rappoport is a Psychologist located in Sherman Oaks, CA. Dr. Rappoport enjoys working with young adults and adults, and specializes in helping individuals cope with anxiety, depression, trauma, and obtaining peak performance. Dr. Rappoport helps clients work through negative coping mechanisms that can arise from mental health concerns, such as alcohol and substance abuse. Dr. Rappoport also has extensive experience working with athletes and others who would like to enhance their performance, and those who feel burnout due to immense pressure.

Dr. Rappoport’s goal is to help clients grow their self-compassion, self-awareness, and mastery. This is achieved by providing them with useful perspectives, insights, and tangible coping skills, all of which can help individuals overcome moments of distress and self-doubt. Dr. Rappoport’s approach incorporates client-centered approaches in a way that helps clients unlock their own inner strength. Clients reflect on their independence and how this newfound resolve has helped them achieve their goals. They also benefit from mindfulness practices, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Psychodynamic therapy, modalities that when combined tie together thoughts, feelings, actions, and self-understanding.

Dr. Rappoport earned a PhD in Psychology from Palo Alto University. His dedication to the pursuit of self-empowerment assists clients in learning more about themselves and helps them to grow their ability to control their emotions and negative cognitions. Clients leave therapy with the ability to challenge their own thoughts and to stop the patterns that are harmful to their health and wellbeing.
