Professional statement

Dr. Raha Salehinia is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with a private practice in Santa Monica, CA. Her unique background in Multicultural Community Psychology, Psychoanalysis, Existential, and Eastern philosophy reflects the range of interests and skills she brings to her work. She works with individuals and families struggling with addiction-related problems, and mood and personality disorders. She also works with couples who are in highly conflicted marriages.

Her style is grounded in empathy, listening, and compassion, with a dash of humor central to building a trusting alliance. Dr. Raha offers trauma-informed psychotherapy. Therapy sessions with her integrate both insight-oriented and skills-based approaches. She challenges her patients to explore the root cause of their symptoms, gaining new awareness of their emotional and relationship patterns. She believes that we all have the potential to heal from early wounds, repressed emotions, and adverse experiences that advance the possibility of a conscious and vibrant life. Her philosophy is to assist her patients in breaking free from stuck pain, guilt, and shame. She firmly believes that everyone should have the opportunity to thrive and not merely survive.

Her practice modality is the psychoanalytic approach, which is central to trauma and the impact of early childhood on adult life, combined with an interactive and engaged humanistic approach.
