Chandler Sims Chang, Ph.D.
Clinical Psychologist (PSY 22092), Downtown Los Angeles
Thank you for your interest in my practice. My goal is to provide a comfortable space, free of judgment, in which to create a therapeutic relationship. In that collaborative spirit, we explore your challenges and identify your goals. As we move towards change, I offer insight and guidance based on a decade of experience and training gained at two prestigious research‐oriented psychology programs--UCLA and The University of Georgia.
While I integrate many approaches, I use evidence‐based treatments whenever possible: cognitive-behavioral therapy, exposure/response prevention, mindfulness, acceptance and commitment therapy, and interpersonal therapy, among others. These strategies are effective in treating anxiety in various forms, depression, and eating disorders as well as other compulsive behaviors, such as hair-pulling or excessive spending. In addition, I have found that positive psychology tools, such as cultivating gratitude and resilience, help clients find joy in their daily activities and relationships.
Although I choose to work independently, I eagerly pursue relationships with colleagues, membership in local and national organizations, and continuing education experiences. I enjoy working closely with other psychologists and psychiatrists in the Los Angeles area and with doctoral students at University of Southern California as a clinical supervisor.
I look forward to hearing from you and joining you on a path of self-discovery and change, taken one step at a time.
