Nancy Lichtenstein, MFT specializes in individual and couples counseling, marriage and family therapy, addiction management and counseling, and anxiety/mood disorder therapy in Beverly Hills and the greater Los Angeles area.


Often we feel a pervasive sense of unease, sadness or confusion in areas of our life that don’t work for us. Often we suffer from sudden changes of unexplained mood elevation to low depression. At times we stay in areas of deep depression or depression is floating just beneath the surface and we don’t understand why or how to change it. We come to therapy to find out what we can do to create a life we want and to be given the opportunity to understand what has gotten in the way. Therapy provides insight and awareness to change old patterns and offers us hope. It opens doors for the possibilities of healthy options for change and a new lens through which to view ones life and relationships. You have life insurance right? You also need emotional insurance. The premiums for emotional insurance are paid for with your time. Therapy is the road to nourishing your mind, body and spirit and thus your emotional well being. I believe choosing the right therapist is a very important and personal decision.
How do you know if it is a good fit? I offer a “complimentary” 20-minute phone consultation. I welcome the opportunity to talk to you, answer any questions you might have and assist you in making that decision.

Nancy Lichtenstein is an amazing counselor that really knows her stuff when it comes to helping relationships. She is terrific at listening, and the best part of the whole deal is how comfortable the entire situation is. She is a perfect counselor! I would recommend her to anyone.


I talked to Nancy with what I thought was a very complex problem and she was able to simplify and prioritize things for me. She gave me the tools to start solving some of the issues I had to work on. She's very engaging and I feel like she's vested in my success.


My boyfriend and I had never gone to couples counseling before and we didn’t know what to expect. Nancy put us at ease right away and demonstrated a good understanding of what she saw was going on. She listened without judgment and gave us tools and skills to work on over the next several weeks. It’s been empowering to see the positive changes in our relationship. If you are looking for a relationship expert, go no further. She’s the best.


Finding a therapist you connect with can be difficult, but from my first appointment with Nancy, I really felt like got me. I’ve been working with her now for two years and each step of the way, she has given me so much insight and awareness into myself. I leave every session looking forward to the next. I feel stronger, more self confident and empowered by the tools she has taught me. Working with Nancy has been an amazing experience. I highly recommend her.
