Armin Baier, LCSW

Psychotherapy | Los Angeles


I am a psychotherapist for individuals and couples who have a variety of psychiatric conditions and life concerns. I also provide case consultation and training for psychotherapists in a relational Gestalt Therapy model.

I specialize in three areas:


My specialization in addictions and recovery includes behavioral, psychosocial and spiritual (though not necessarily religious) approaches.


I am certified in the use of EMDR to address the effects of trauma such as fear, hopelessness, shame, anger and grief.

Sex and Sexual Diversity

In my work with the LGBT communities over 30 years, I have assisted clients in exploration of their sexuality and sexual feelings, the coming out process and the development of mature, satisfying relationships.

“The gentle snow, flake by flake, never falls in the wrong place.”
