Oliver Drakeford

Oliver Drakeford

Oliver's approach to therapy is influenced by his enthusiasm for classical psychodynamic theory that was the foundation of his training at The Maple Counseling Center in Beverly Hills. This was enhanced with psychoanalytic training from the Los Angeles Institute for Psychoanalytic Studies (LAISPS). He strives to enhance his approach using contemporary influences, from Mentalization Based Training, and from his extensive cultural sensitivity work from Antioch University's LGBT Specialization.
