Welcome to PCH Treatment Center of Los Angeles, California

PCH Treatment Center is a psychological treatment facility located in the quiet Mar Vista community near Santa Monica, California. PCH stands for “Psychological Care & Healing” because we understand how difficult it can be to struggle with psychological issues and how important it is to meet each person with compassion, expertise, and individual care.

Our Therapists

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 here.

What We Treat

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:

Healing in a safe environment

Family members often feel helpless and frustrated in their attempts to find the best care for a loved one dealing with psychological issues. Once a week psychotherapy may be inadequate and hospitalization can be overwhelming or even traumatizing. At PCH Treatment Center, our treatment programs are designed to meet the personal and psychological needs of each client. Our programs provide intensive treatment in a secure, safe, comfortable, and caring environment without overmedication or stigmatizing labels. For more information about our programs, click here.
