Hello, I’m Marcia.
Welcome. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist committed to helping kids, adolescents, individuals and couples discover and implement positive change in their lives.
My goal is to foster a safe, confidential and caring space for an authentic conversation of discovery, one in which the preciousness of you and your inner-world, body, mind and spirit are the topic of exploration.
Sessions are in person at my office off of Main Street in Santa Monica, on the phone or via FaceTime or Skype. Your choice.
I also utilize walk therapy as well as talk therapy (yes, we walk and talk).
Positive change with EMDR and Coaching:
Positive change can be as simple as reframing and reconsidering what we believe to be true about ourselves and our lives. Often, our own limiting beliefs are the only thing standing in the way of our sense of wellness. Any trauma or setback in life can arrest natural growth and joy, yet can be overcome with a powerful intervention called EMDR, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. Only after we’ve done the depth work are we better able to recaim and reconsider our own gifts and resources.
Sometimes roadblocks occur that blind us to what’s possible, so a bit of supportive counseling and EMDR can help us move forward. I believe that we all have the resilience and resourcefulness necessary to achieve full, rich lives.
