    We ourselves have healed through good therapy. We believe in your ability to change and grow.

    “Let go of who you think you’re supposed to be; embrace who you are.”

    My mother found Mo online and introduced me to her when I was visiting home in Calabasas. I had seen 12 psychologists/psychiatrists/therapists before I came across Mo. They all had knowledge, but I was not satisfied with the method they used to put forward the information to me. I remember I did not want to see Mo during my first appointment because I was so disheartened from my previous therapy experiences. I walked in reluctantly because my mother forced me to, as every young adult’s parent would, but it all changed the moment she spoke to me. The main qualities that I felt set her aside from old previous therapists was that she was empathetic, unbiased and made sense without using too many difficult technical terms. Mo has impacted all aspects of my life greatly. As stubborn as I was to not see a therapist after many failed visits to several others, I believe from the bottom of my heart that whether you face issues in your marital life, professional life, with your parents or children, give Mo a try. Although I lived in denial, all of us have baggage from our past that we may not even be aware of. After Mo explained and gave names to the feelings I feel, it made me feel less ‘insane’ and more compassionate to myself, a feeling that was foreign to me. Seeing me go to Mo and the transformation it has brought to my life, my mother now sees Mo as well to help build a conducive environment for me to grow in. Nobody loses anything and there is nothing wrong in seeking professional help. We get help from consultants for our businesses all the time; no harm in visiting Mo a couple times a week.”

    Client with extensive trauma and an eating disorder

    “I met Moreen when I went to eating disorder treatment at Alsana where Moreen was the Senior Director of Clinical Services. I started therapy several months before meeting Dr. Moreen Rubin. My experience with my therapists beforehand were all positive, supportive, and secure.  It was refreshing to experience and witness Dr. Moreen’s character and approach–she is grounded, down-to-earth, warm, extremely honest, and a fantastic listener/validator. She knows how to read the energy in the room and somehow offer exactly what is needed in the moment–whether it’s mindful breathing, processing, psycho-education, validation, etc. Thus, I felt safe, seen, and heard in her presence at all times.  A significant experience in my daily life is waking up stressed, tense, and unhappy. She was the first therapist to notice and address the fact that I start my days in this manner. To this day, I use the loving words she offered as a mantra in my mind when I wake up to put in the work of starting my days in a more positive and loving mindset. I am also reminded of the kindness she offered me during difficult times, and I work hard to provide myself with this level of compassion on a daily basis. I was fortunate to receive the genuine level of care and compassion Dr. Moreen provided myself and others. She helped make the atmosphere comfortable and safe in order to create a communicative environment, and she showed up for her patients with 100% of her energy, focus, and zeal every day that we met with her. I know that future patients will benefit and improve from the wisdom and attentiveness that Dr. Moreen has to offer. I was pleasantly surprised by the level of honesty and frankness Dr. Moreen presented to her patients from the first session. She made therapy enjoyable when appropriate and earnest at all times. She has a level of confidence in her knowledge and experience with therapy that absolutely translates to the effectiveness of her therapeutic skills.”
