Peace. Hope. Healing.

Hello, I'm Richelle. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in Santa Monica, California. I help people who feel stuck in their lives and are looking for support in managing difficult problems and painful emotions.

My experience has shown me that a holistic, integrative approach that engages both mind and body in a safe, supportive, and non-judgemental space delivers the fastest and longest-lasting therapeutic results.

I specialize in working with women who struggle with anxiety, depression, and other stress responses such as shame, anger, perfectionism, and loneliness, and offer support for those challenged by difficult parent/adult-child relationships. I am also Al-Anon informed and have a particular interest in supporting people dealing with disordered eating, sexual abuse, codependency and a family history of mental illness and addiction.

Additionally, I work with young adults in navigating the oftentimes difficult, frustrating, and confusing process of transitioning from childhood to adulthood. 

As part of my commitment to women’s health and healing, I cofounded WithWomen Counseling (, a place for women and their families to find the support and resources they need to live healthy emotional lives.

Whether you’re looking for general guidance, support, or problem-solving for a specific issue, I am here to help you find your way from where you are now to where you want to be.

Take a look around, and please feel free to reach out for more information so you can get to know me better and learn more about my practice.

I’m glad you’re here.

Stepping onto a brand-new path is difficult, but not more difficult than remaining in a situation which is not nurturing to the whole woman.
