Roland A. Frauchiger
Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, MFT
I’m a psychotherapist with over 25 year experience working with individuals, couples and families in Los Angeles, California. I challenge the problems facing our complex and diverse society today. I believe in the Unity of Life. From the earliest single cell forms of life, to the complex human organism, there is a basic energetic function that unites: Pain & Pleasure, Thinking & Emotion, Mind & Body, Man & Women, Family & Society. When this unitary function is disrupted and blocked, healthy life suffers. Conflict and stress from this unitary disruption often results in irrationality, unhappiness and/or disease.
The mending and healing process occurs when the essential living functions of Life are restored. Primary to the healing process is establishing the natural free flow of feeling and thinking, and supporting healthy expression and behavior.
I use Orgonomic, Bioenergetic, and Psychotherapuetic methods to regain emotional, cognitive and behavioral functioning.
I accept MFT interns who qualify for Supervision for licensing for the CA BBS and who have a strong interest in MindBody therapy.

Mind & Body Therapy
Alternative Counseling and Psychotherapy
Orgone & Bioenergetic Therapy
This is a natural and organic mind / body approach to restoring healthy emotional, behavioral, and cognitive functioning. It is especially effective in dealing with depression, anxiety, sexual dysfunction, creative blocks, and debilitating personality traits that interfere with love, work, and the knowledge to sustain health.
Pioneered by Wilhelm Reich, M.D., and made popular by Alexander Lowen, M.D. in the 20th century, this method utilizes natural life energy and has helped many people reach their potential functional level. It has also helped people reduce, or let go completely their addiction to self-medication and / or prescribed pharmaceuticals.
It should be noted that some people need medication and cannot function without it. However, in our society today, pharmaceuticals are over-prescribed by physicians for emotional, behavioral, and cognitive symptoms, without considering the scientific advances that have produced non-drug alternative methods effective in eliminating a variety of clinical symptoms by getting to the source of the symptoms. There are psychotherapists who consider pharmaceuticals as a last choice.
