Career Highlights

Dr. Michael J. Whitman

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with a private practice primarily in Beverly Hills. I have been practicing psychotherapy for over 20 years. In my experience, two very important aspects of successful psychotherapy are therapist empathy and insight. I work with people that are dealing with a variety of challenges in their lives. I help my patients examine key aspects of their past experiences that may affect their present lives. I have witnessed therapy improve the quality of clients’ relationships, work, and overall life fulfillment. We also have associate therapists in the practice who offer therapy on a sliding scale, in a variety of languages and with different specialties to best meet your needs.
