CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW TELEHEALTH CLIENTS. IMMEDIATE AVAILABILITY. In the years that I have practiced therapy, what my clients want, above all else, is to feel relief - relief from anxiety, emptiness, or feelings of worthlessness. They want to break free from the endless cycles of pain in relationships, or from the debilitating fear of rejection amongst family and friends. My goal is to not only help you find that relief but also support you in discovering greater purpose and fulfillment.

Raising children is challenging and deeply gratifying, humbling and transformative. Amidst the roses and thorns of family life, inevitably there are moments where having another mind to consult with may open fresh perspectives, provide new strategies, ease tensions, and restore hope. Utilizing a short-term, intensive, family consultation model, I offer a menu of services for families with young children, including home visits, parent coaching, and school observations. Distant consultations via Zoom are also available. A deeply collaborative process, I tailor this work to meet the specific, immediate needs of your family.

People who see me for the first time are often feeling overwhelmed, confused, depressed or anxious. Some people are unable to sleep, have distressing thoughts, or cannot control troublesome habits and behaviors. Others have have struggled with chronic pain due to injuries or illnesses. Many have endured the stigma of having a major mental illness which created difficulties in daily functioning, mood swings, or poor judgement and distorted thinking. And others have functioned well with significant achievements in their careers, family, and relationships but still feel empty inside, and cannot experience pleasure, meaning, or fulfillment from their lives.

Nothing hurts like constantly stumbling over the same old conflict with your partner, when all you really want to do is be close. It’s hard to concentrate or have a lightness to the day when relationship struggles drag you down. We fall in love with people who are different enough from us to create a spark. It’s that “completion feeling” of interest & fascination. We feel sad & confused when the spark burns instead of warming us. It’s a baffling betrayal to our emotional logic that we can deeply love someone that we frequently fight with & sometimes emotionally dread.

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.
