**** NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS **** Making space to sit with yourself, for yourself, is a courageous step down the road less traveled. I believe in the power of authenticity, and of cultivating trust and a mutually-built atmosphere in the therapy room to support your growth. In our sessions, I will work to provide you in turn with a secure base, a mirror, a teammate, a confidante, a witness.

Safety, compassion, expertise, authenticity-- these are what to look for in your therapist: don't accept anything less. Please check out my website, www.garyglickman.com to get a deep sense of how I do my work with you-- and your partner. Usually anxiety&depression can be traced to earlier relational traumas still haunting you, in old, painful habits, obsolete fears, and feelings of being trapped in the same situation, again and again. As a somatic specialist, I help you pay deeper attention to your body's own messages of healing waiting to happen-- and then help it happen!

You may already have answers to your struggles, though these answers are unconscious. I specialize in working with your unconscious, the side of you that is neglected, ignored or rejected. This is a powerful mode of therapy that can help you with your anxiety, depression or relationships. I work with adults, and have specialized training to work with children, adolescents and their parents. My work with children focuses on play therapy, the child's best form of communication. With adults I use my Jungian training in dreamwork and symbolism to access the unheard side of yourself, which can enrich your life and relieve your suffering.

There are moments in life when we feel stuck in dysfunctional patterns that consume us with self-doubt despite our best efforts. During these moments of despair, anxiety and depression take over and prevent us from moving forward with the necessary steps for change, However, it is in this place we are asked to go inward, go deeper, and begin to understand dysfunctional patterns that inhibit personal growth and strip us from the personal freedom to actualize our true potential.

In therapy, we look to grow, and we seek help with real-life problems. I enjoy working with both this “growth” therapy as well as with those seeking relief. I enjoy working with clients who struggle with unhappiness, anxiety, addiction, or loneliness. I work with new parents who struggle with the challenge of having a child and/or being working parents. I have strong commitment to serving women who are finding their voice, to the LBGT community and minorities. I am also well versed with clients who are struggling with grief and loss. I enjoy creating a safe place to talk for women, those who feel excluded, and to heal from trauma.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Santa Monica, this list of Teletherapyists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Santa Monica listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

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. 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.
