David SchreiberYour decision to find a therapist to help you with your emotional difficulties is the first step towards healing. I understand the trust it takes to open up to someone you don't know. It's important for you to find someone you feel comfortable with, and for this reason I offer a free initial consultation for you to get a sense of what it would be like to work with me as your therapist.

Individual Therapy

Long-term psychodynamic therapy provides a safe and encouraging environment in which to explore, illuminate, and eventually integrate the experiences and emotions which have led you to seek treatment. In my work with individuals, I strive to form and cultivate a strong therapeutic connection. Together, we create a unique therapeutic relationship in which to safely explore and understand your deepest vulnerabilities and fears. This experience reduces depression and anxiety, and provides the strength and security needed to create stronger and healthier relationships outside of the therapeutic setting.


I am a doctoral candidate at The Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis, and accepting certain clients as analytic control cases. This is psychoanalytic treatment, with a session frequency of 4 to 5 times per week. My fees for this type of treatment are on a sliding-scale.

Couples Therapy

In couples therapy, we work in collaboration towards an understanding of how each partner's needs, fears and vulnerabilities are expressed or not expressed within the relationship, and how these patterns of communication often lead to conflict. Drawing from current theories regarding attachment styles in adults, together we also explore personal histories and how they are impacting your present-day significant relationships. Couples sessions typically last up to 75 minutes, longer than a regular individual session. This gives time for possible problematic communication patterns to come alive in the room. We can then look very closely at those patterns in order to better understand them and change them.


Please call (310) 503-1767 to schedule an initial consultation, or email me at dwschreiber@yahoo.com. This appointment is an opportunity for you to determine if we are a good fit. If you decide to continue looking for a therapist, there is no charge for this consultation.


Fees range from $175 for individuals to $250 for couples. Individual sessions are 45 minutes, and couples sessions are up to 75 minutes. I see clients anywhere from 1x/wk to 3x/wk. Some sliding-scale appointments may be available - please call to inquire.


I am not on any insurance panels. If you wish to use your insurance coverage, you may want to find out what mental health benefits are offered by your PPO for out-of-network providers. I will provide monthly statements or superbills which you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
