Dr. Rubin Khoddam, Ph.D. (PSY#31388) is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in the treatment of addiction and trauma as well as mood disorders, such as anxiety and depression. In addition to these specialty services, Dr. Khoddam also has extensive training in treating individuals as well as couples with a variety of mental health concerns, whether that be dealing with a difficult life transition, understanding life patterns, healing from past traumas, or seeking more meaning and purpose in their lives.
My speciality is in individual and couples treatment of addiction, trauma, and mood disorders, such as anxiety and depression. I have been trained extensively in various evidence-based practices to treat these issues, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy for Trauma, Prolonged Exposure for Trauma, and Integrative Behavioral Couples Therapy among others. However, regardless of whether you are deciding to come to therapy to treat a specific diagnosis, decrease your substance use, deal with a difficult life transition, manage a relationship, or to find more meaning and purpose in your life, I am here to support you on your path. In addition to specific treatment modalities, I also see my work as helping you become more conscious of the patterns in your life so that you can not just live the life you want, but learn the skills to course-correct when you inevitably go off path – as we all do. I strive to do this in palatable, supportive ways by integrating humanity, understanding, authenticity as well as the evidence-based research and years of practical experience to help you do your work as we all strive to do our own.
