What we seek in our partner is connection. Deep, relaxed, secure connection is the springboard to passion. I help couples re-connect and stay connected by enhancing the positive, eliminating the negative and becoming each other's advocate. I help singles identify patterns that have haunted past relationships and help find and forge a new kind of loving partnership. Anxiety, depression and addictions all stem from, or are fueled by, deficient early connections. Learning the skill and discipline to navigate a conscious romantic relationship can heal much of the past and free us from many restricting thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

Have you reached a place in your life where you are ready to explore your behaviors, relationship patterns, beliefs, and even your innermost desires? Do you feel like you are ready to take control of what may be blocking you from moving forward - at work, home, in relationships? The clients that come to see me have determined that they are ready for change and that they want to improve their lives. I believe that doing "inner work" is an entirely courageous act. And that this "inner work" can only be achieved and sustained through a holistic approach with a focus on the mind, body, and spirit.

Tired of stress and worrying? Perhaps even panic? Body tension? A foggy mind? Are relationships affected? Can you imagine how freeing it would feel to be more in control of these intense thoughts/emotions? Be more at peace? These are realistic goals, which many of my clients achieve. Instead of avoiding people and situations, which limits them, they gradually start standing up for themselves. The more positive experiences they have, the more self-empowered they feel, daring to say or do things they really want to, be themselves and feel authentic. I can help you to achieve these goals in individual and/or couple sessions.

You're smart and motivated. You've managed to create a good life and career. But there is anxiety or other demons you face on a daily basis that others would be shocked to know about. You often feel anxious and isolated, like you're walking around with a sign on your forehead that says "loser." Maybe it's hard to trust in relationships or you're constantly fighting off reminders of prior traumas, whether an abusive or neglectful childhood or something more recent. Many of my clients struggle with binge eating or disordered eating or other addictive behaviors.

Are you a perfectionist at heart? Do you believe others must like you for you to be okay? Does it feel like you are always crazy busy, but something is missing? People-pleasing can make you feel stressed and burned-out. The rollercoaster ups and downs can make you feel upset and even a bit angry when you are usually a very nice person. My clients learn new ways of looking at things so that they feel better about how they treat their friends, family, and how they treat themselves.

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.
