Psychotherapy and case management for adults specializing in illness, aging and life transitions

About Meredith Vender, LCSW

Hi! I’m Meredith. It’s nice to meet you, thank you for being here. After many years of working in hospitals, most recently at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, I started my private practice so I could spend more meaningful time with clients. My experience in healthcare has provided me the privilege of helping a broad population of adults and older adults coping with a wide array of medical and mental health diagnoses. I am here to witness and support you through a challenging time in your life such as receiving a new diagnosis, coping with a chronic illness, shifting to a caregiver role or grieving the death of a loved one. I am well versed in navigating the complex medical system and can help foster collaboration and communication with your medical treatment team. I am continuously researching and networking with local and national resources that can supplement your care including support groups, wellness activities and caregiver resources. 

I received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Tulane University and a Master of Social Welfare from UCLA. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker registered by the Board of Behavioral Sciences (LCSW 68680) and a Certified Case Manager (CCM) by the Commission for Case Manager Certification
