Beginning therapy can be scary and intimidating, but also hopeful. Discussing your wishes and uncertainties in session can promote clarity and lead to positive changes in thinking and behavior that are necessary to improve circumstances and relationships. Action is required for positive life changes to occur. It isn't always easy figuring out what action to take or what changes to make. Therapy is a safe place to explore these thoughts and feelings. Small shifts can lead to large improvements in mood and relationships. Please reach out with questions or to schedule an initial consultation.

I believe people want to express who they are and pursue satisfying work and relationships, but have emotional and cognitive patterns that keep them stuck. These patterns often consolidate into a persona that leaves people feeling not quite themselves, with needs unrealized, feelings ignored, and potential unused. Symptoms of anxiety and depression, addictions, or low self-esteem, are often the only messengers trying to let us know that we are needing change. In a supportive and safe environment, therapy can help to bring these patterns into awareness and liberate needs to connect, create, and expand with fuller emotional support.

Perhaps you are reading this because you feel stuck in your job, a relationship ended, or you recently experienced a loss in which you feel others cannot understand. I would be honored to support and work side by side with you during these life transitions. Together, we can try to make sense of what is happening, understand what possibilities exist, and even find a sense of freedom from all the difficulties you are experiencing. Each of us has our own story and while we cannot control the plot, we can heal from our wounds and the perception we hold of our experiences.

I give them tools to attain more refined states of balance, personal engagement and vibrance in their lives. The process of therapy is immensely creative and personally unique, and in its' special moments asks that we step into leaps of faith of being with our present experience. The benefits are priceless. Depression, anxiety, not having a sense of self, destructive thinking, procrastination, poor relationship quality are all within our control to change.

Often pain, anxiety, discontent or depression in our lives is telling us something. Our emotions are eloquent communicators. Through the process of therapy we can learn to utilize this information. With self exploration and new insights, we can consciously create richer, more meaningful, fulfilling lives. Even in the best of times, people have recognized the benefits of addressing, through counseling, the difficulties that limit their personal and work lives. In these very challenging times, familiar coping strategies may no longer be working and the insight gained through therapy can be even more valuable. In a safe, respectful, confidential environment, you can learn how to build more effective ways to relate others, reduce stress, and live more authentically.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Santa Monica using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Santa Monica are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Santa Monica. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Santa Monica

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Santa Monica you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Santa Monica and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Santa Monica or family therapy in Santa Monica.
