Jeffrey Chernin, Ph.D., MFT is a marriage and family therapist in Los Angeles, California (CA). He provides psychotherapy designed to help individuals and couples overcome obstacles in their lives and find greater peace of mind and more fulfilling relationships.
Throughout his years as a psychotherapist, Dr. Chernin has formed the belief that what many in the mental health field call an 'illness' or describe as being 'unhealthy' (such as isolating, co-dependence, poor relationships, etc.) are actually ways of trying to cope with past or present circumstances. He believes that everyone has ways of 'being in the world' that developed as a result of growing up in dysfunctional families, not finding good friends growing up (or not fitting in), or having a pattern of being betrayed in relationships.
The ways we are treated form the core of how we make sense of our experiences and prepare ourselves for future ones. We develop certain coping strategies that are there to guard against rejection, being unfairly treated, or not being accepted for who we are. These same coping strategies that initially helped us can evolve into ones that hurt us: Lack of intimacy, loneliness, and depression or anxiety.
As an experienced therapist in Los Angeles, California (CA), Dr. Chernin's goal is for his clients to both feel better and get better, finding the root of their problem so that positive changes can be made.
