ABOUT ME

Hello, my name is Jodi Milstein (formerly Jodi Jacobson).
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.

MY APPROACH
I take a humanistic approach to psychotherapy and
counseling.   I am flexible in utilizing a variety of theoretical
orientations depending upon the client, their personal issues,
and communication style.   As a psychotherapist, I believe it
is important to remember that everyone's challenges and
concerns are unique to them.   I strive to understand people
as individuals, rather than through a specific diagnoses or general labels.

I support the idea that each individual has great freedom in directing his or her own future and resolving past issues as well as a large capacity for achieving personal growth.   I approach psychotherapy holding the belief that with a considerable amount of internal work, self-discovery, communication improvement, and in some cases cognitive behavior modification, one has great potential to achieve a higher level of self-fulfillment and happiness.

MY PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND
WORKING WITH MUSICIANS AND BAND MEMBERS

Prior to my career as a psychotherapist, I was a music industry executive at a major record label and in artist management for nearly two decades.   Back then, I worked closely with established as well as new artists of all genres of music by developing their careers through marketing and touring.

Drawing upon my experience and insight from the music industry, I now specialize in providing therapy to bands as a group as well as individual musicians in an effort to help artists improve their professional group dynamics and personal relationships.   I currently work with musicians, artists and bands by effectively combining my firsthand knowledge regarding the challenges musicians face with the valuable education and experience I now have as a Clinical Psychologist.

SUBSTANCE ABUSE, ALCOHOLISM,
EATING DISORDERS, SELF-INJURY

Once I earned my Masters Degree, I worked at a residential chemical dependency treatment center.
I expanded my knowledge, insight and education regarding the challenges individuals, their families and those close to them face when drugs and alcohol take over their lives.   In addition, I also gained valuable experience in working with clients challenged with eating disorders, body image issues and self-harm.

PRIVATE PRACTICE
While working at the treatment center, I began building my private practice where I now work with a variety of clients faced with many different challenges.   Currently, I work out of two psychotherapy offices conveniently located in Beverly Hills and Encino, California accommodating clients living in
Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley.
