drannethompson I am a licensed clinical psychologist in Los Angeles and I work with adolescents, adults, couples and families.

I treat individuals struggling with self-defeating and destructive attitudes and behaviors with special focus on body image issues and eating disorders.

Often these thoughts and behaviors have developed out of an attempt to manage emotions and stress or to help navigate the complicated feelings that arise in relationships.

Additional areas of focus in my practice include helping people with relationship issues, grief and loss, and the emotional challenges that accompany life transitions (e.g., transition to college, adulthood, marriage, parenthood, mid-life and aging).
