Dr. Emma Rishton
Los Angeles, CA
12 years experience female
I am a licensed psychologist with a private practice located in the Brentwood Medical Plaza in West Los Angeles. My training is in psychodynamic psychotherapy. My practice is general in the sense that I treat a wide range of ages, but specific in the sense that I understand the importance of treating each person as an individual. I have extensive training in the treatment of adults, adolescents and couples. Additionally, I have been trained in helping with pregnancy and postpartum.
