Peace. Hope. Healing.

Hello, I'm Richelle. I’m a licensed marriage and family therapist in Santa Monica, California. I help women manage painful emotions and recover from anxiety and depression stemming from emotional trauma and neglect, bereavement, and relationship difficulties. I specialize in working with shame, perfectionism, loneliness, and supporting motherless daughters and women with difficult parent/adult child relationships. I am also Al-Anon informed and have a particular interest in supporting women dealing with 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. 

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.
