Healthymynds Is. . .
Founded by Dr. Lysa Eastman, Healthymynds is focused on addressing the needs of people experiencing overwhelming feelings associated with depression, anxiety, self-destructive habits or relationship issues. This private practice strives to create a safe place that is supportive and empathetic to each individual’s needs. We believe this type of environment encourages deep exploration and fosters courage and hope to grow and change. This growth and change can open the door to an improved sense of well-being, deeper relationships, and the reduction of painful symptoms and emptiness.
Dr. Eastman has been in the mental health field for over 15 years. After earning dual Master’s Degrees from Loyola Marymount University she worked with a diversity of children, adolescents, and their families as a School Psychologist. She supported them through the challenges of dealing with learning disabilities, life transitions, crisis, relational issues, depression, and anxiety. She later worked collaboratively with South Bay schools to create educational plans that tailored to individual’s needs and optimized academic performance.
Later, she earned her PhD in Clinical Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. She received advanced training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy at the Wright Institute Los Angeles (WILA) through the completion of their Doctoral Internship and Postgraduate Certificate Program.
In her private practice she focuses now on treating clients dealing with depression, anxiety, distressing life events, relationship problems, self-destructive habits, and desire for growth and change. She works with adults, couples, and adolescents; offering a no-cost initial consultation in-person or via phone.
