Tely Toumani, MS, LMFT, LPCC, Marriage & Family Therapist in Santa Monica
I have a passion for this work and honor and appreciate my clients. Starting from wherever you are “stuck,” we’ll work on developing your ability to deal with problems in such a way that they become opportunities for personal growth. Our greatest difficulties can be life’s greatest gifts in disguise if we can learn how to translate their messages. It may be hard to imagine that your eating disorder or anxiety attacks (for example) can take you somewhere positive, but every problem we encounter has the potential to move us to a place of greater self-understanding,
bringing us to a place that’s even better than where we started. I facilitate an intense process (delivered with a good dose of empathy) wherein clients can develop a better understanding of themselves, their behavior and their relationships and create meaningful changes based on personal values.
In therapy, we’ll work on empowering you to transform old, damaging patterns into new, healthier ways of living: from sadness to joy, fear to wisdom, anger to strength, loneliness to connectedness, and shame to acceptance. I offer a free phone consultation to answer any questions you may have.
