Sara E Sedlik, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Manhattan Beach
I specialize in counseling for couples and individuals. If you are ready to make lasting changes and want more than just someone to 'talk to,' then you have landed on my profile for a reason. I work collaboratively, which I find is empowering and evokes more change that is effective and permanent. Learn why you're stuck or feeling lost, identify core beliefs and triggers that may be blocking you and or your relationships, and heal wounds that may lie in the unconscious. My passion is helping you identify and be your "authentic self."
Couples therapy is effective when we identify your repetitive, negative cycles and find new ways to engage, build trust and intimacy. Communication, premarital challenges, divorce matters, and parenting support are common topics among couples. I also help individuals manage stress, heal from trauma, make decisions, process difficult emotions.
My style is authentic, direct and creative - tapping into approaches or interventions that meet you where you are in the process. I work from an attachment perspective and use evidenced based modalities to build resilience not only in the mind, but in the body. With this approach, new positive pathways are formed.

A support group for parents who have challenging children or those with strong will, intense emotions or may bring an added level of intelligence, energy or even developmental challenge. Do your friends drive you crazy when they tell you what works for them and you know it won't work for your child? Find those self help books don't ever apply to your kid? This is a highly supportive atmosphere with compassion, empathy and non judgment for parents who might feel like they are alone.
