Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (MFC 28036)

Within Driving Distance of Santa Monica, CA

Psychotherapy involves a confidential meeting with a trained therapist for the primary purpose of addressing the issues and concerns of a client. This professional and confidential relationship is to increase the client's awareness and choices. Active listening, feedback,exercises in session, homework (as needed), psychoeducation are utilized to facilitate increase awareness, growth and competence. Having a client work through difficulties (even if they can't change others or a situation) and have ways to respond to their satisfaction and with a renewed sense of themselves is very satisfying. I generally recommend a full physical/lab tests to rule out medical causation for mood disorders.

Psychotherapy can be a powerful tool in one's life. Most everyone can benefit from therapy regardless of what the problem or issue may be. There is always this misconception that you must have something wrong with you if you go therapy, but that is a myth. Psychotherapy can be very helpful and powerful within one self by expressing your internal feelings.

Psychotherapy brings insight, and there is some relief in this--sometimes even joy. But what heals people from pain, freeing them to move on from developmental states of being stuck, is a relationship of integrity and empathic responsiveness. Together the client and the clinician explore the issues that brought him or her through the door. It's a safe place to feel your feelings, to cry any necessary tears, and to say what must be said. More than this, it's a regularly recurring chance to be heard as you figure out what you want your life to be, and how you can become the stronger person that you ultimately are.


Sandra Dupont, MA, MS, MFT

Counseling, Coaching & Mentoring for Millennials

1247 7th Street, Suite 300, Santa Monica, CA 90401

If your young adult is feeling isolated and alone, I can help them explore the circumstances that have led them to this place in their life. Sometimes healing is derived from simply gaining understanding of how their life experiences have impacted them and shaped who they are. I can help your young adult examine how their early childhood experiences have influenced the lens through which they currently view the world. I can also help them evaluate any rules they made up about the meaning of life. Together, we can design a new and more fulfilling story for their future.

My approach to psychotherapy does not involve years of talk about issues until the client reaches a "catharsis," and suddenly is cured. It is more of a collaboration and involves the client to engage in his own therapy. We look for solutions, rather than talking about "problems" endlessly. As a person-centered therapist, I believe an authentic, respectful and caring relationship with the client fosters growth and self-actualization. The use of cognive-behavioral methods, allows us to look for underlying beliefs the client may have about his place in the world, and unrealistic thought patterns, such as "all-or-nothing" thinking. These can be redirected to provide positive outomes.


Kristen Gardenhire, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of Santa Monica, CA

I think that psychotherapy is a great way to unearth the difficult patterns from our past that bog us down. I really believe that psychotherapy will help clients to discover who they are truly meant to be through the processes of discussing their family of origin and the dynamics that occurred. I've seen clients struggling with trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, and much more greatly benefit from psychotherapy.


Mary Kay Cocharo, LMFT, CIRT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Santa Monica, CA

One of the things I love most about my career as a psychotherapist is teaching and supervising interns in becoming Postmodern Therapists. This way of working focuses on a client's inherent resources for growth and healing. I focus on solutions, rather than on problems. Through deep, empathic connection, individuals are safe to open up, express their life long fears and challenges and experience the joy of moving beyond whatever "story" they've been stuck in. Clients experience this work as creative and energizing, as they explore their preferred selves and rewrite their life scripts. From depression, anxiety fear and confusion to clarity, healing and growth.
