Testimonials

For over 20 years, I've struggled with my emotional stability and a sense of self.  I attributed this to my bipolar diagnosis, which was confirmed by many established hospitals and psychiatrists alike.  When medication didn't seem to help as much, my psychiatrist introduced me to Dr. Fielding, who was a ray of sunshine in my battle against depression and volatility.  She was honest, while compassionate; insightful and perceptive; warm and firm at the same time.  After seeing so many therapists I had developed a distrust of therapists, and yet, Dr. Fielding broke through all these barriers.     

In a sea of therapists, Dr. Fielding is truly the best therapist I've seen.  I made significant inroads towards developing a life worth living with Dr. Fielding, and I feel incredibly fortunate to have worked with her during our time.

I feel very blessed to have been under the care of Dr. Lara. At the time of our first session, I was experiencing unrelenting major depression which was resistant to medication. A family crisis exacerbated this condition ultimately leaving me immobilized. Dr, Fielding truly was my “lifeline”” when I was in the abyss.  I don’t think I would be writing this testimonial today if it were not for her wisdom, her expertise, and her innate clinical talent in creating a sacred place for me to heal.

Many of the DBT providers in Los Angeles are untrained. I am comforted knowing that Dr. Fielding is Harvard trained, mentors graduate and medical students, alike.
She’s beautiful inside and out-

Thank you, Lara

Lara's impact on my life and work has been nothing short of revolutionary. I came to her in the darkest point in my life, and she helped me to overcome tremendous obstacles through a combination of caring, empathy and practical instruction. Every session we had came gave me the benefit of new insights and tactics to help me with my marriage and career. Lara is not the first therapist I've seen, but she has been by far the most effective. She has enabled me to gain the confidence I need to thrive in life, and I am a better person because of her.

"When my anxiety began to interfere with my life on a daily basis, my psychiatrist recommended I see a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist.  In particular, her recommended Dr. Lara Fielding.  I am so glad he did! I found Dr. Fielding to be a very skilled therapist who helped me identify what was behind my anxieties and develop different thought processes to handle my anxieties.  After only a few sessions, I felt like a new person.  My anxiety level is so much lower, and Dr. Fielding is the reason.  Not only is Dr. Fielding talented in her field, but she is also a warm, caring and compassionate person.  I highly recommend her."
