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 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 (www.withwomencounseling.com), 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.
I’m glad you’re here.
