Ryan Chandler is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and Licensed Drug and Alcohol Counselor based in Los Angeles, CA. Ryan completed his academic training at Springfield College, which ascribes to the philosophy of Humanics, the age-old Greek ideal of the balanced individual. Ryan believes that a person’s emotional, intellectual, and physical lives are interconnected. The Humanics philosophy calls for the integration of the whole person - in spirit, mind, and body.
In Ryan's clinical practice as a psychotherapist, he believes that in order to heal from the past, we must heal the whole person - in spirit, mind, and body. In order to treat the mind, Ryan believes that we cannot forget about the body and the spirit. Ryan's approach is a blend of traditional psychotherapies, body-based practices, and holistic approaches.
Ryan has experience working in both inpatient and outpatient settings (i.e., community mental health centers, private agencies, drug and alcohol treatment centers, and schools) with a variety of client populations (children, families, and individuals).
