Los Angeles Therapist and Counselor for Individuals

Los Angeles Psychologist Dr. Vida Nikzad, Psy.D., LMFT

California Licensed Psychologist · Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist


I provide individual psychotherapy for adults, utilizing different techniques depending on their needs. Many of my clients have commented to me that they actually look forward to therapy, and see it as relieving and fun. I believe that therapy should not be a dreary, painful process, but a process that frees us to be better and happier people.

Individuals seek therapy for variety of reasons. Often they are seeking to change their old ways, establish harmony in their relationships, find the courage to pursue their goals, and overcome their negative ways of thinking.

Making changes in our lives takes time, just as making physical changes like losing weight takes time. However, by using research-based techniques and approaches with my clients, you will be surprised how quickly positive results will begin to show themselves.

Research indicates that by practicing new ways of thinking and acting we can actually transform our lives for the better. Once we change, we can focus on achieving the important goals we set for ourselves; and irritation, anger or other unpleasant feelings, when they come up, will tend to dissipate very quickly. By making a momentum for self-improvement and life-improvement, we can achieve happiness, for happiness consists in doing, not merely being.

Areas that I focus on are:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Self-esteem
  • Addiction
  • Grief and loss
  • Anger management
  • Trauma using EMDR
