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 with their anxiety. Often, his clients’ anxiety leads them to engaging in unhealthy behaviors such as substance abuse. They seek perfection in all aspects of their lives, and feel emotions like disappointment or frustration when they fail to meet this unachievable self-expectation. 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 amounts of pressure.
Dr. Rappoport’s goal is to help clients grow their self-compassion and self-awareness. He does this by providing them with useful perspective and tangible coping skills, both of which can help individuals overcome moments of distress. Dr. Rappoport’s approach incorporates psychology’s client-centered approaches in a way that teaches clients about their own strength. Clients reflect on their independence and how their resolve has helped them achieve their aims in the past. They also benefit from mindfulness practices and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a therapy modality that ties together thoughts, feelings, and actions.
Dr. Rappoport earned a PhD in Psychology from Palo Alto University. His dedication to the pursuit of self-understanding empowers clients to learn more about themselves and to grow their ability to control their emotions.
