Cynthia Rajchman is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and former preschool teacher who specializes in working with children and families. From newborns to adolescents, with new parents and experienced ones, Cynthia enjoys bringing families together through empathy and understanding, so mothers and fathers can become the parents they want to be, and children can achieve their fullest potential.
Cynthia believes in working with the family system rather than with the child in isolation. Her therapeutic approach is rooted in Attachment Theory, into which she incorporates elements of mindfulness and reflective parenting. Cynthia makes strong use of play and art therapy with children to help them express and work through their emotions in a safe and familiar environment. She has helped children and families who struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma, behavioral challenges, and life transitions.

David Hayes is dually licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist, and Professional Clinical Counselor with a wide range of clinical experiences working with adults, couples, and families in private practice, residential, and outpatient settings. He has a background in somatic therapies, Mindful Parenting Groups, and mediation. David is currently a doctoral candidate, training to be a psychoanalyst at LAISPS (Los Angeles Institute and Society for Psychoanalytic Study.)
David has been involved in healing work since 1997 when he began working with the body to resolve pain and studying how emotions are held and often stuck in the body. As this work evolved into how thoughts and feelings relate to patterns in the body, David was drawn to psychoanalytic theories, as he felt them to be the most complete attempts to describe mind and body experiences while bringing scientific and philosophical principles to areas that were previously underexplored.
David’s early clinical exposure included psychoanalytic psychotherapy training in object relations theories with adult patients and mother/toddler dyads. Simultaneously, he worked in integrative medicine centers at the hospital and clinic level where traditional and alternative approaches to healing were being used.
David is a certified mediator and has completed Reflective Parenting Program’s Level 1 training. He maintains a private practice and works with Dr. Denham to support parents, couples, and adolescents. David is married to Dr. Denham and they are parents to two young children.
