PCH believes in treating the individual, NOT the disorder. We avoid stigmatizing labels and treat each client with respect and compassion. While we do use psychological terminology on our website and to communicate with medical professionals, we maintain an emphasis on treating the individual, NOT the disorder. Every person is different and every psychological problem manifests in different ways – we pride ourselves on being attuned to that in each of our clients. PCH offers a unique combination of therapeutic and holistic treatments for mental health issues such as:
While many mental health treatment facilities are owned and run by executives with little experience in the world of psychotherapy and treatment, PCH Treatment Center is independently-owned and directed by experienced clinicians and leaders in the field of psychology. Jeff Ball, Ph.D. Co-Founder, CEO, and Executive Director of PCH Treatment Center provides over 30 years of experience treating bipolar disorder, depression, trauma and personality issues. Having worked in the medical field for over 20 years, Co-Founder and COO, Terry Krekorian, M.D., adds a unique combination of both clinical and operational/medical expertise. Dr. William Wirshing, PCH Director of Psychiatry, is a world-renowned expert in psychopharmacology and leader in the medical treatment of mental illness. John Grienenberger, Ph.D. is Clinical Director of PCH Treatment Center and Co-Executive Director of the nonprofit Center for Reflective Communities. His direction is invaluable to the PCH Family Program and Psychological Assessment Clinic.
PCH Treatment Center is a unique facility staffed by some of the brightest and most talented therapists in the Los Angeles area. While many treatment facilities cut costs by hiring newly licensed therapists or interns, we believe in the importance of education, training, and cumulative experience. At PCH, our therapists are primarily doctoral level with private practices in the area (which allow them to continue treatment for your client after PCH for those without a previous therapist). Most have 15 to over 30 years of clinical experience. Many are affiliated with local universities. To learn more about our unique clinical staff, click on the button below.Meet our Clinical Staff
