With his diverse educational background, Dr. de Vihil brings a unique perspective to his practice, integrating principles from psychology and business to provide holistic and comprehensive therapy. Utilizing a Holistic Approach Therapy, Dr. de Vihil addresses various areas of concern, including relational intelligence, couples counseling, and obsessive and addictive behavior. He also incorporates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques to further enhance the effectiveness of his treatment. By combining these approaches, Dr. de Vihil aims to support his clients in achieving lasting and positive changes in their lives. After residing in New York City for over two decades, Dr. de Vihil made the decision to relocate his family to Laurel Canyon, nestled in the serene Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles, California. This move has allowed him to create a more grounded and peaceful atmosphere, which he believes greatly contributes to the therapeutic process. Dr. de Vihil's surroundings, filled with nature's beauty and harmony, serve as a source of inspiration for his work. Aside from his professional pursuits, Dr. de Vihil is fluent in French and possesses a passion for music. He is an accomplished pianist who composes original piano compositions. This unique interest informs his research on communication, enabling him to explore the intricate connections between music and human interaction. Dr. de Vihil understands that taking the first step towards therapy can be difficult, requiring courage, bravery, and a willingness to embrace vulnerability. He strongly encourages individuals to overcome their apprehensions and embark on their therapeutic journey. While the initial leap of faith may be challenging, it is through this act of trust that true transformation and growth can occur. He attributes his success to his grandmother who was the most healing relationship in his life. She nurtured and poured so much love into his life during some very extreme circumstances as a child.
