Marilyn Ashley, MA, MFTI, Marriage & Family Therapist in Hermosa Beach
I am passionate about joining you on your personal journey of self awareness. Therapy is self-discovery, an exploration that can restore your connection to yourself so that you can feel invigorated and allow you to move from where you are to where you want to be. Through therapy, you can gain new insights and tools that support YOU, first and foremost in your connection with yourself and then overflow into your connection with your loved ones. Together we will explore patterns that are no longer working for you, or preventing you from personal growth and healing.
My experience includes helping couples and individuals on issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem, personal fulfillment, and relationship intimacy. The word I hear most from my clients is "calm" - how calm I feel to them and how calm they feel working with me.
My emphasis is providing help that is both practical and transformative, working with your inherent strengths. I pay close attention to ensure you feel safe, supported and heard. Call or email me today for a 20 minute complimentary introduction and we'll talk about how I can help you move forward.
